To many people statistics means numbers â collecting them and organising them. The field of modern statistics involves much more. It is the source of techniques developed to help managers and researchers to draw reliable conclusions from observations that contain variation.
Operational research techniques, sometimes called management science, provide quantitative decision-making methods complementary to statistical analysis, such as the control of queues, stock, and quality control.
The BSc in Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics combines specialisation in statistics and operational research, with the study of the principles of mathematics, offering a good grounding in general mathematical theory and techniques.

My uni experience has been great. I am graduating this year and I am very sad to be seeing that stage of my life finish, but I know that the future will hold many more adventures. I think the biggest thing about uni is the friendships you make.i never would have done so well without the support of my friends.
