Statistics

At undergraduate level, statistics degrees are likely to cover a wide variety of topics. First, you will study probability and introductory statistical methods, introducing the ideas of likelihood and regression modeling. Other statistics topics which may be covered include experimental design, inference, computational inference, sampling and databases, biostatistics, environmental statistics and financial statistics. Throughout the course, you will gain experience in working as part of a team, and learn how to use specialized computer software.
