Teaching

DTS aims to develop and deliver excellent quality, research-informed teaching relevant to today's students, at undergraduate, postgraduate and professional development levels.

DTS runs, the MSc in Statistics with Medical Applications (SwMA). The MSc in SwMA, is taught jointly by the (SoMaS) School of Mathematics and Statistics and staff in DTS, is a Master’s level degree in medical statistics aimed at those who wish to pursue careers as a statistician in the health sector and at those who wish to continue with academic research.
