The MA in statistics will bring students to the same level as the 1 year MSc degree in Statistics
Currently, students without sufficient statistical background knowledge can attain masters level proficiency by first completing the Higher Diploma in Statistics followed by the MSc in Statistics, which takes two years. The MA in Statistics provides an alternative pathway in 16 months and there is no comparable programme in Ireland or the UK.
- Ranked in the top 200 in the world in the QS World University Ranking, and is the only statistics group in Ireland to appear in this ranking.
- The UCD MA Statistics is fully accredited by the Royal Statistical Society
- Exposure to cutting-edge modern statistical applications
This programme is intended for students with a numerate background but who may have insufficient background knowledge to gain entry to the MSc programme.
