Basic Statistics Stream

How the Basic Statistics Stream (BSS) works...

Our Basic Statistics modules are designed as a stream, increasing in difficulty:

  1. Foundations in Applied Statistics (FiAS)
  2. Basic Quantitative Analysis (BQA)
  3. Doing Multivariate Analysis (DMA)
  4. Further Topics in Multivariate Analysis (FTMA)

Because of this, there is a special booking procedure for these modules.

All students wishing to take BSS modules must:

  • EITHER have taken the Skill Check
  • OR have taken (and passed) the end-of-module assessment for the previous module in the Stream.
    (We strongly recommend that students take the assessment since a pass mark is fundamentally important for a large proportion of Tier 1 Departments.)

In September, emails are sent to MPhil students in Tier 1 Departments asking them to complete the Skill Check. Results of the Skill Check are sent directly to students so that they can discuss them with their supervisors, and decide together which modules should be taken, based on the results recommendation, and their individual degree requirements. These results are also sent to priority student's Departments. If you are unsure which modules you should be taking, please speak to your supervisor and/or contact your Department's Graduate Administrator for help.


After consulting the date options, by clicking on the links below, and deciding which modules they wish to take, students can request a booking, here, using the dedicated Basic Statistic Stream Booking Form

NB. We recommend that you request bookings for ALL the modules in the Basic Statistics series (FiAS, BQA, DMA, FTMA) at the same time, on the same form.

Request bookings for Foundations in Applied Statistics (FiAS), Basic QUantitative Analysis (BQA), Doing Multivariate Analysis (DMA), and Further Topics in Multivariate Analysis (FTMA), here.
