Department of Statistics

The Department of Statistics at UNSW is one of the most dynamic in Australia. It provides expertise in a wide range of activities, including research, teaching, consulting and the organisation of technical workshops.

The research areas of the Department comprise Bayesian and Monte Carlo Methods; Biostatistics and Ecology; Finance and Risk Analysis; Nonparametric Statistics; and Stochastic Analysis. Research undertaken by staff members has resulted in an extensive publication record.

Seminars run by members of the Department and their visitors are held on a regular basis. A list of upcoming seminars is available.

Short courses designed for researchers who wish to expand their statistical skills are run in the School twice a year.

Taught undergraduate degrees and a range of Masters courses are available, some with scholarship support, designed to take advantage of the demands of the modern statistical workplace. We have a Statistics Walk-In Consultation Service which aims to support undergraduate students in some of our most popular Statistics courses.

The Department's broad range of research interests support a variety of options for postgraduate and postdoctoral research. Graduates with a UNSW degree in Statistics can be assured of a highly portable and valued skill set for their chosen profession. Please see Studying Statistics at UNSW for more information regarding undergraduate and postgraduate study.

The Department of Statistics at UNSW is a world-class centre of teaching and research, with a vibrant history dating back to the inception of the University.
