Mae’r rhaglen wedi’i chynllunio i'ch arfogi â’r sgiliau, y dulliau a’r ffyrdd dadansoddol angenrheidiol o feddwl i daclo a dadansoddi problemau trefniadaethol cymhleth, i’w helpu i wneud gwell penderfyniadau ac i ddatblygu’n ddadansoddwyr ystadegol hyderus.

Our MSc in Operational Research, Applied Statistics and Financial Risk aims to equip you with the necessary analytical skills, methods and ways of thinking to tackle and analyse complex organisational problems, help make better decisions, and to become confident statistical analysts.

This course is ideal training for those who wish to study, in greater depth, risk models, particularly for application to financial markets but also to other sectors. 

You will undertake case studies and project work which will give you the opportunity to put your skills into practice and provides valuable experience of working in the field. The dissertation project, typically undertaken with an industrial partner, will allow you to work with complex data in a creative manner and a problem-solving environment, as well as to communicate your ideas and findings effectively.

This is a one year full-time programme.

Nodweddion unigryw

  • This course will give you the opportunity to study risk models in greater depth, particularly those models used in financial markets.
  • The skills you will develop are highly transferable for use within industry, business and the public sector.
  • The School of Mathematics has excellent links with a number of organisations who employ Operational Researchers, Statisticians and Financial / Risk Modellers

Strwythur y cwrs

This one year course includes a three month period working with a company on a real problem that they have identified.

You will take 110 credits of core modules and 10 credits of optional modules in the taught component of the programme. This is followed by a 60 credit summer project.

The programme will prepare you with essential techniques in Operational Research and Applied Statistics, and then allow you to select from 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).

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.

You will have the opportunity to put the theory into practice, through case studies and project work in the ‘real-world’. An important feature of the MSc is the project dissertation, allowing you to work with an external company.

The modules available in 2016/17 as part of the MSc programme include:

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The methods of teaching we employ will vary from module to module, as appropriate depending on the subject matter and the method of assessment. We teach using a mixture of lectures, seminars, computer workshops and tutorials.

You will apply the skills you develop through presentations, research assignments, case studies and the summer project.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

During the course your development will primarily be monitored via tutorial sheets, with other means where appropriate.

Written examinations, often in combination with an in-course element forms overall assessment.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

All of our students are allocated a personal tutor when they enrol on the course. A personal tutor is there to support you during your studies, and can advise you on academic and personal matters that may be affecting you. You should have regular meetings with your personal tutor to ensure that you are fully supported.

You will have access to the Trevithick Library, which holds our collection of mathematical and computer science-related resources, as well as to the other Cardiff University Libraries.

We will provide you with a copy of the Student Handbook, which contains details of each School’s policies and procedures. We also support students through the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central, where you can ask questions in a forum or find course-related documents.

Cardiff University also offers a wide range of support services which are open to our students, such as the Graduate Centre, counselling and wellbeing, financial and careers advisors, the international office and the Student Union.

Feedback

We offer written and oral feedback, depending on the coursework or assessment you have undertaken. You will usually receive your feedback from the module leader. If you have questions regarding your feedback, module leaders are usually happy to give advice and guidance on your progress. We aim to provide you with feedback in a timely manner after you have submitted an assessment.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

You will study a variety of problem-solving techniques, allowing you to build and use mathematical and statistical models, alongside skills to develop your abilities to communicate effectively to others.

This course has particular value in developing transferable skills including critical analysis and evaluation, the ability to undertake original and creative research, team working and the development of IT and presentational skills.
