Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program aims to provide students with skills suitable for employment as professional biostatisticians in medical and epidemiological research, the pharmaceutical industry and government departments and agencies. The program is designed to accommodate students from a range of academic backgrounds and includes subjects designed to provide the necessary foundations in mathematical and statistical theory to those without a first degree in mathematics or statistics. A compulsory subject in epidemiology introduces those unfamiliar with research in population health to critical appraisal of the health and medical literature. Subjects taught under the Biostatistics program form a structured sequence and are not generally available to students taking other awards.
