The Statistics Departments of the University of Oxford and the University Of Warwick, supported by the EPSRC and the MRC, run OxWaSP, a Centre for Doctoral Training in the theory, methods and applications of Statistical Science for 21st Century data-­intensive environments and large-­scale models. This is the first centre of its type in the world and aims to uniquely equip its students to work in an area in growing demand both in academia and industry.

Each year OxWaSP (the Oxford Warwick Statistics Programme) recruits at least 5 students attached to Oxford on the Statistical Science (EPSRC and MRC Centre for Doctoral Training) course, and at least 5 attached to Warwick. The course is a 4 year one.  Fully funded places are available at both universities.

All students spend the first year of research training in Oxford. An exciting training programme is delivered by world-leading researchers in Statistical Methods and Computational Statistics from both Universities.  There are funded opportunities for students to work with our leading industrial partners and to travel to an international summer placement in some of the strongest Statistics groups in the USA, Europe and Asia.
