Master of Statistics (2018 Admission)


 Aims and Features

The degree of Master of Statistics is a one year full-time / two years part-time programme, which has been restructured from the previous degree of Master of Social Sciences in Applied Statistics that was launched in September 1987. Since the first graduation in 1989, we expect to have about 900 graduates when the present cohort completes the programme.

This programme is designed to provide a rigorous training in the principles and practice of statistics. It emphasizes applications and aims to prepare candidates for further study, research, consulting work and administration in various fields through computer-aided and hands-on experience.
