Statistics (Online) P.Grad.Cert.

1 year Part Time (Online)
Up to 100 EU, 40 non-EU Places


This part-time course is intended for graduates of disciplines, other than statistics, who want to develop and deepen their knowledge of statistical methods for solving problems involving data arising in business and industry, in public service agencies or in research. The course is best seen as ‘continuing professional development’ for people who need statistics for their work. The course provides a broad introduction to the statistical ideas and methods relevant to data gathering and analysis in a wide variety of research areas as well as business and administration. The intention is to provide participants with a practical grasp of statistics based on a sound knowledge of the underlying ideas and concepts. Graduates of the course should be well placed to apply the ideas and methods to which they have been introduced in their own work. To this end, all the material is presented in the context of practical examples from a wide range of applications. More information can be found at
From September 2021 this course is moving entirely online and there will be no need to come to TCD Campus at all.  We hope that this extends the opportunity to take this course to anyone who lives outside of Dublin


Masterclass | PG Cert in Statistics,  Jun 13, 2022 01:00 PM
If I take the Postgraduate Certificate in Statistics, what does a typical week of study look like? In this session, we will go through the content that you study in the very first week of the course, including a presentation by me of the week’s lecture. This session looks at how we summarise and visualise the main types of data that we encounter across all applications of data analysis, whether that is in science, engineering, humanities or business. We look at which summaries and graphs are most appropriate, as well as some of the common pitfalls when using them.
