Programme Description

This programme develops the student’s understanding and appreciation of the important role of analysis, use, and representation of data in society and motivate them to pursue continual professional development.

It will enable students to combine the analytical skills they acquire through the study of Mathematics with the modelling and data analysis skills they acquire through the study of Statistics, so that they might construct novel tools for the analysis of real world situations, to solve specific problems arising in their professional career.

Other options may also be permitted subject to the agreement of the Programme Director and timetable issues.

 

Students may also take a language module in addition to their standard programme requirements. Please see the Programme Extras page for details. The additional module may be at any level, so long as it is considered appropriate by the Modern Language Centre.

Alternatively, a language module of level 5 or above can be taken in the place of one of the standard options. Students need the permission of their Programme Director for this and are allowed to take a maximum of 30 additional credits (normally two extra modules) during their whole degree programme.

 

You may, subject to the approval of the Programme Director, also take modules at other colleges of the University of London - normally no more than two modules

Please note however that should you select Intercollegiate modules and fail them, you may not be able to re-sit them until the following year in accordance to other colleges of the University of London rules and regulations.
