Statistics - Online

Course Description
This part-time course is intended for graduates of disciplines, other than statistics, who want to develop and deepen their knowledge of statistical methods for solving problems involving data arising in business and industry, in public service agencies or in research. The course is best seen as 'continuing professional development' for people who need statistics for their work. 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. More information can be found at

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
