Statistics at university is very different from that learned at school. It is far more mathematical, but also provides the opportunity to work with large datasets and use custom software to analyse data and produce results that can be used to better understand our world. This taster day explores some of the lesser-known areas of Statistics and the ways that it can be applied to many different fields.

The day will include two workshops given by members of the department exploring different areas of Statistics as well as lunch, information on the Oxford admissions process and an optional college tour.
