 Programme Structure

Commencing in September, the curriculum is composed of a total of 60 credits of courses in either one year for full-time study, or two years for part-time study. The programme offers great flexibilities for students who wish to take a general approach or a specialised theme in Risk Management or Data Analytics. A student may choose to have his/her theme printed on the transcript if he/she has satisfied the requirement of one of the themes. If a student selects an MStat course whose contents are similar to a course (or courses) which he/she has taken in his/her previous study, the Department may not approve the selection in question.

 Programme Duration and Class Schedules

The programme extends over not less than one academic year for the full-time study, and not less than two academic years for the part-time study. Teaching will take place mostly in day-time from Monday to Saturday for courses having course codes STAT6XXX, and on weekday evenings (7:00 íV 10:00 p.m.), and Saturday mornings (9:30 a.m. íV 12:30 p.m.) and afternoons (2:00 íV 5:00 p.m.) for courses having course codes STAT7XXX or STAT8XXX. All lectures are conducted in English at HKU.
