UCT Science Statistics Requirements

The requirements for undertaking the University of Cape Town (UCT) Science Statistics.

Mathematical Statistics Stream

Please see the Science Faculty Handbook for more information on course requirements

STA1006S – Statistics for Mathematical Disciplines

The aim of STA1006S is to provide students who intend to major in Mathematical Statistics with a solid foundation in the mathematical aspects of statistics required in the training of a professional statistician. The material for STA1006S places more emphasis on the theoretical and mathematical aspects of Statistics than STA1000S. As a result, the course will be taught at a much faster pace than STA1000S. The breadth and depth of the STA1006S syllabus means that the course demands from the students a hard working attitude and an effective study strategy.

STA2005S – Linear Models
STA3041F – Markov Processes and Time Series
STA3043S – Decision Theory and Generalized Linear Models
