If you are an Advanced Mathematics or Advanced Science student, then Honours is built into your program. For all other students, if you are keen on mathematics and statistics and have achieved good results in years 1 to 3, you should consider embarking on an Honours year.

Information on Statistics Honours, including program details, potential research projects and application forms, can be found in the Handbook of Honours in Statistics.

For other information about doing Honours in Statistics, see the Honours page.
