Course Introduction

Graduate research students work closely with their supervisors and enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. They also liaise with other members of staff with relevant research interests and are encouraged to attend and participate in departmental research presentations and other Institute seminars. There is a full induction for new graduate students on commencing their studies. Each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer; facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs. Training courses run by the department, the Institute or through the Graduate School can be utilised as required to provide training in a wide variety of topics, from transferable skills to academic areas directly relevant to the student's thesis.

Our academic statisticians carry out much collaborative and applied statistical research. Recent examples include: Predicting language development from early motor skills in at-risk infants who develop autism spectrum disorder; Mediation analyses of the PACE trial; Prediction of alcohol relapse in mothers; Trial of Prophylactic antibiotics after acute stroke for reducing pneumonia in patients with dysphagia; Methods for understanding mechanism in trials of parenting programmes; Latent Transition Analysis of mood subtypes in Parkinson Disease and Methodology for two-stage analysis of structural equation models.
