Statistics - Online

Trinity College Dublin

Statistics - Online

The course provides a broad introduction to the statistical ideas and methods relevant to data gathering and analysis in a wide variety of research areas as well as business and administration. The intention is to provide participants with a practical grasp of statistics based on a sound knowledge of the underlying ideas and concepts. Graduates of the course should be well placed to apply the ideas and methods to which they have been introduced in their own work. To this end, all the material is presented in the context of practical examples from a wide range of applications.

From September 2021 this course is moving entirely online and there will be no need to come to TCD Campus at all. We hope that this extends the opportunity to take this course to anyone who lives outside of Dublin.
