Welcome to the Department of Statistics
Our work covers a broad range of theoretical and applied statistics
The Department of Statistics in the University of Oxford is a world leader in research including computational statistics and statistical methodology, applied probability, bioinformatics and mathematical genetics. In the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2008, Oxford Statistics had the highest proportion in the UK of research judged to be world leading or internationally excellent.
We offer an undergraduate degree (BA or MMath) in Mathematics and Statistics, jointly with the Mathematical Institute. At postgraduate level there is an MSc course in Applied Statistics, as well as a lively and stimulating environment for postgraduate research (DPhil or MSc by Research). Our graduates are employed in a wide range of occupational sectors throughout the world, including the university sector.
The Department co-hosts the EPSRC and MRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Next-Generational Statistical Science. T
