University of Glasgow, UK MSc in Statistics or NUS MSc Statistics (Coursework)?Watch this thread
I have also received an offer of studying M.Sc. in Statistics (By Coursework) at National University of Singapore (NUS) which will commence in Aug'18. The Minimum duration is 2 years.
I am from the South Asian Region and I will have to study either of the above-mentioned programmes as a self-funded candidate. As of now, my academic background comprises a Bachelor Degree in Engineering followed by a Masters Degree in the area of Operations Research.
My first objective, after completion of either of the degree programmes, is initially to get a job in the area of Applied Statistics (in the UK or in Singapore) and later, to pursue a Ph.D. degree in the area of Statistics either in US University or in UK University.
So far, following are some information that I happen to know of:
- The 1-year UK PG Degree is not recognized as equivalent to degrees granted by universities in South Asia.
- Tuition Fees and Living Costs are very high both in the UK as well as in Singapore.
- Presently, getting Jobs in UK Organization is very difficult for
- Singapore does have Service Obligation Scheme for International
- But, National University of Singapore prioritizes Research-based
Programmes compared to Coursework-based programmes.
So, can you please suggest which of the above-mentioned degree programmes I should pursue, keeping in line with my future objective?
Do US Universities recognizes the 1-year UK PG Degree in order to pursue a Ph.D. degree?
In terms of Research in Statistics, which University fares better - Glasgow University or NUS? If I decide to do Ph.D. later, which University will be a better choice?
Which M.Sc. degree Programme is more mathematically rigorous - is it in Glasgow University or is it in NUS?
Is it better to pursue M.Res. in Advanced Statistics compared to M.Sc. in Statistics at Glasgow University since I already have a Master's degree?
In terms of cost of living, which city is less expensive - Glasgow or Singapore
