Information on Degree Programmes
Both programmes prepare you with essential techniques in Operational Research and Applied Statistics, and allow you to then select from a number of interesting and varied optional courses in topics such as supply chain modelling, healthcare, and Statistics and Operational Research for Government (delivered with input from the Office for National Statistics and Welsh Assembly Government). The MSc in Operational Research, Applied Statistics and Risk, which is a unique MSc degree combination in the UK, is for those who wish to study in greater depth risk models, particularly for application to financial markets but also to other sectors. As well as studying the foundations in Operational Research and Applied Statistics, you will study further topics in actuarial risk, financial modelling and credit risk scoring.
We have designed and structured the programmes with both full and part-time students in mind. Full-time students will complete the programme in 12 months, which includes a 3 month period working with a company on a real problem of importance to that company. Part-time students will complete the taught programme within 24 months with upto a further 12 months to complete the project dissertation.
