Find the programme structure that fits your year of admission on your Study Information.
The structure of the programme is very free. You can choose from a large number of restricted elective and elective courses to compose the programme as you choose. The courses offered seek to couple mathematical, statistical, and practical aspects, usually with a focus on a special type of study and the theoretical, and practical problems it entails.
You may choose to focus on one of the three disciplines (probability theory, theoretical statistics or data processing) and become, for example, a probability theoretician or obtain skills in statistical computing.
There are good opportunities for participating in external projects as part of your studies. You can also choose to collaborate with a company or an institution by doing a project in practice.
Furthermore, it is possible to study abroad during your programme. You can choose to study for one or two semesters or for a shorter period, for instance attend a summer school course.
The programme concludes with a thesis, where you work in depth with an academic problem. Often, the thesis has a practical point of departure, where the solution to the problem may of importance to many people.
Here are some examples of thesis topics:
- Survival Analysis - Analysis of Waiting Times
- Ruin Problems
- Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods
- Cointegration - Stable Correlations in Explosive Processes
- Missing data - When It Is Informative that Data Is Missing
