The minor in statistics is an undergraduate minor degree which is exclusively designed for Single Honours Mathematics students. In order to complete this minor, students must take 20 ECTS credits of compulsory statistics modules during their Senior Fresh year along with 20 (or more) ECTS credits of optional statistics modules during each of their sophister years. This gives a total of 60 (or more) ECTS credits in Statistics. A precise list of the available modules is given below. Unless indicated otherwise, each module is worth 5 ECTS credits.

The School of Computer Science and Statistics prepared a short information video about the minor which is posted on Youtube. For further details, please contact the programme coordinator Prof. Jason Wyse (
