Funded MSc places in Statistics

Monday 18th April, 2011

Applications are invited for 4 fully funded MSc places in Statistics in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow. The courses start in September 2011, and successful candidates can study on any one of our five taught Master's degrees, namely

The first of these degrees is aimed at students with an honours degree (e.g. in Mathematics) which has a substantial Statistics component. The remaining four can be attended by graduates in any discipline who have some mathematical background.

In addition, suitably qualified candidates could enrol on the MSc in Statistics by research if an appropriate project and supervisor can be found.

The Statistics group at the University of Glasgow is internationally renowned for its research excellence, and has a vibrant community of around 30 postgraduate students. Our research strengths include statistical methodology, biostatistics and environmental statistics, and further details can be found on the webpages of the research groups in Statistics.

These fully funded places cover all University fees (at the UK/EU rate), as well as a stipend at the EPSRC rate, which last year was £13,590.

Informal enquires should be directed to Professor John McColl, and formal applications should be made on-line using the University's Postgraduate Online Application System.

Your application should include a C.V. as well as details of two academic referees. There is no formal deadline for applications for these degree programmes, but we expect to make decisions on the funded places at the beginning of June 2011.
