The Department of Statistical Science at UCL is the longest established university statistics department in the world. It was founded in 1911 by Karl Pearson and has played a pioneering role in the development of the subject. It is one of nine departments in the UCL Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MAPS), and has close links with many departments, both within the Faculty and outside ...it. All MAPS departments had at least 80% of their research activity classified as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” in terms of originality, significance and rigour in the 2014 REF. In 2016 the department obtained overall satisfaction ratings of 87% for the National Student Survey and 100% for the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey. The department holds a Bronze Athena SWAN award in recognition of our commitment to advance the representation of women in science, mathematics, engineering and technology.
We teach statistical science at all levels (undergraduate single/combined honours, service courses, MSc and PhD) and carry out research across a wide range of theoretical and applied areas.
