PGCert - Statistics as a subject

Please note

From 2018 Statistics will be available as a minor and Postgraduate subject. Students interested in Undergraduate Statistics should consider the Data Analytics major.

Postgraduate certificates and diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree. A postgraduate diploma can often lead to a master's degree.

Studying Statistics at the University of Waikato will help you to become a critical decision maker in industry.  You'll know how to collect and analyse data to lead organisations to informed decisions rather than just hunches or guesses.
