Statistics and Operational Research provide methods for structuring, modelling, solving and analysing a wide range of practical problems.
Studying for a Statistics and Operational Research MSc will enhance
communication, interpersonal, mathematical and computing skills
career prospects inareas of industry such as biological, environmental, medical and pharmaceutical, government, the financial sector
PhD possibilities
You will enjoy Statistics and Operational Research if you like solving practical problems, analysing the results and seeing the solutions implemented.
Why study in Edinburgh?
Edinburgh Universityis a world class university, with highly prized degrees
The Statistics and Operational Research MSc is taught by award-winning subject experts from the School of Mathematicsand many external academics and industrialists.
Many companies have offices in Edinburgh and many students go there for projects.
The Post Study Work visascheme allows overseas graduates with qualifications such as the Stats and OR MSc leave to work in the UK for up to two years without requiring a work permit.
The City has recently been judged to be the best place to live in the UK. It is the capital of Scotland, a United Nations World Heritage Site, and hosts the world's biggest arts festival.
Study ProgrammeThe study programme is divided into three parts.
Part 1 covers the core skills of Statistics and Operational Research. The majority of the core courses are in Semester 1 (S1) from September to December.
Part 2 gives students the opportunity to tailor their degree by selecting from a broad range of optional courses. These are taught mainly in Semester 2 (S2) from January to March.
Part 3 begins in June and comprises a three month project on which students base their dissertations.
Core CoursesThere are ten core courses:
Analysis of Lifetime Data
Computing for Operational Research
Computing for Statistics
Dynamic and Integer Programming
Methodology Modelling and Consulting Skills
Mathematical Programming
Simulation
Stochastic Modelling
Statistical Regression Models
Statistical Theory
These are compulsory for the Statistics and OR MSc.
Optional Courses
There are many optional courses that can be taken by students on the Statistics and OR MSc. These are drawn from alternative statistical courses and the optional courses of the Operational Research MSc programmes:
Credit Scoring and Data Mining
Distribution-Free Statistical Methods
Genetic Epidemiology
Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition
Risk analysis
Time series analysis and Forecasting
All optional courses are either 5 or 10 points. Students must choose optional courses totalling 30 points. Some courses may not be available in a specific year.
Eligibility
To be successful a Statistics and OR analyst needs to enjoy problem solving and be keen to see the solutions implemented in practice. This requires communication and interpersonal skills, as well as mathematical skills. These skills will be developed during the course, but a prerequisite is to have a good first degree (e.g. a U.K. upper second) or equivalent, with a significant Mathematicscomponent and some knowledge of Statistics.
If your first language is not English or your first degree is not from a British University, you will need to provide evidence of your ability at spoken and written English.
It is important for a Statistics and OR practitioner to be able to use computers fluently to model and analyse new problems. This may involve using or adapting existing packages or using programming languages to develop new applications, and it is important to be interested in this and see it as a creative activity. There are no formal entry requirements for computing skills, but if you have limited experience of computing we advise you to do some preliminary work before joining the course.
Tuition Fees and Living Costs
The fee for the 2011/2012 Operational Research and StatisticsMSc programmes will be
6,550 for United Kingdom or European Union students,
13,500 for overseas students.
The fee covers the costs of registration, tuition and examination. There is a fee of about 40 for graduation.
The fee does not cover the costs of accommodation and subsistence in Edinburgh. You should expect to pay about 7,000-9,000 for living expenses over the year.
