    Hello Everybody,

    I'm an italian psychology undergraduate student from University of Palermo. I'm looking forward to UK for continuing my studies.
    For some personal reasons I'm interested in moving my career into a Statistical pathway so for about a year I looked up for different postgraduate course options.
    I have some doubts that my BSc will meet the entry requirements for a statistical MSc (psychology isn't a real quantitative subject and they always require it)
    I'm interested in International Masters in Statistics here at Kent University: it's a 2-years full time master programme starting in September.
    (http://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/postgr...stics-gdip-msc)
    It can suit me because the first year gives a strong statistical background including mathematical aspects and the second year is a regular Statistical MSc.

    But I do have some question about the module in the first year (site is not really detailed.. ) and about entry requirements (again!).

    Does anyone have information about this course? How's that?
    Does anyone know about people that was accepted in the course but did not have a typical BSc pathway for the course?

    Hi Dario

    Thank you for your question.

    The information online is a little limited, I'm not sure if you already came across this:

    Modules available in the first year include, but are not limited to:

    • Analysis
    • Analysis of Variance
    • Linear Algebra
    • Probability and Inference
    • Regression
    • Stochastic Processes


    For information about entry requirements on an individual basis I would contact the admin team specifc to this course, their email is: [email protected]


    Hope this helps,

    Kayleigh
