Our applied statistics programs will provide you with the skills you’ll need to be able to analyse data and apply it across a variety of fields, including forensic science, sports science, psychology and health. When you study subjects such as data mining and epidemiology, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills to be able to ask the right questions, and find the right answers. 

Businesses and organisations don’t need more information — they need people who can analyse and apply it. With an applied statistics degree, you’ll value practical and theoretical frameworks for data gathering, analysis and modelling so that you can process information and make informed decisions from it to help your organisation succeed.
