The Bachelor of Science Honours in Applied Statistics is a postgraduate specialisation degree that aims at consolidating and deepening the knowledge and expertise in the statistics discipline, and to develop student’s capacity to conduct supervised research of an applied nature. The programme is purposefully designed to enable students to evaluate and apply statistical theories, techniques and models to solve complex statistically related problems that face the public and private sectors.
Candidates for the Honours degree would have completed the B.Sc. degree or equivalent with a minimum average of 60 % in the major subjects. However, the admission to the B.Sc. Honours is competitive.
