About the course

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics is designed to allow professionals from varied backgrounds to develop skills in the use of modern statistical techniques and software packages. Students will use this knowledge to solve practical problems in work contexts as diverse as agriculture, business, health, and science.

Subjects are taught using a range of blended learning techniques which include distance study materials, video-captured lectures, online meetings, subject forums and additional study resources. The flexible learning environment allows students to study this course by distance from anywhere in the world. Students are introduced to a statistical package in the core subject and this is used extensively in all subsequent subjects to solve more advanced problems.

As with all our courses, the Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics is designed and delivered with study flexibility in mind. Our students choose between full-time and part-time study options so as to fit in with work and lifestyle commitments. You could choose to study just one subject in an academic session or with approval, fast-track degree completion by undertaking two subjects per session.
