The primary purpose of the BSc Honours qualification is to consolidate and deepen the students’ knowledge and expertise in their respective science disciplines/fields, and to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of those science disciplines. BSc Honours is essentially a coursework degree of which at least 30 credits are devoted to a research project and reporting under supervision. The degree demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence and serves as the initial science postgraduate specialisation qualification providing students with in-depth scientific knowledge and skills preparing them for research based postgraduate science study.
Applicants must hold a BSc degree in Mathematical Statistics as a major, i.e. Mathematical Statistics at third year level, and at least two years of pure Mathematics. Acceptance will depend on the majors as well as the marks obtained. Students that do not comply with this requirement may be admitted at the discretion of the Head of the Department. Such students may be required to complete additional work as prescribed by the Head of the Department.
