This programme, run jointly with the UCL School of Management, combines a thorough training in statistics with modules in the broad area of business studies. It aims to provide a combination of management and quantitative skills useful for a career in business, management, commerce or industry.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
This is a joint degree programme taught by UCL Statistical Science and the UCL School of Management.
You will take roughly half your modules in statistics and mathematics; the other half will consist of modules in management, accountancy, finance and (optionally) economics. While the first and second years provide a solid foundation in statistics, mathematics and management, a wide range of options is available in the third year, allowing you to give more weight to either the statistics or the business component.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
A* in Mathematics, or AA in Mathematics and Further Mathematics, is required. Applicants offering A*AB including A*A in Mathematics and Further Mathematics respectively will also be considered.
English Language and Mathematics at grade C. For UK-based students, a grade C or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. UCL provides opportunities to meet the foreign language requirement following enrolment, further details at: www.ucl.ac.uk/ug-reqs
A score of 18-19 points in three higher level subjects including grade 7 in Mathematics, with no score lower than 5.
