In short, a really interesting course, in which you learn so much about yourself, as much as learning about human psychology. Tje four years of statistical training sounds daunting but turns out to be some of the easier things to learn. But don’t rely on lectures, go the extra mile to make your own learning resources. There’s a Metatheory component in 3rd and 4tg year which is really challenging, but interesting. But a subject that you have to work really hard on for extra marks. Also watch out for Spring semester 2nd year, that is the toughest. For the most part you have a supportive group of peers and academics. While the work is tough at times I feel if I can do it, any one can.

Excellent content with knowledgeable, approachable and supportive staff. I found the coursework engaging and interesting and relevant to where I wanted to go. The content and structure of the course helped me to develop skills and amass knowledge that I still use and refer to.
