Why choose this course?

This course is about a range of popular statistical techniques. It can be a refresher for those who have learned Statistics some time ago or intermediate course for those who need to learn statistical techniques in a way that goes beyond the basics.

Entry requirements...

Prior knowledge of fundamental aspects of Statistics such as mean, standard deviation and confidence intervals is essential along with previous exposure to hypothesis testing and regression (although these latter two topics will be reviewed in the refresher part of the course).
