Self Paced Study

Having an understanding of how statistics work will enhance your career or broaden your understanding of how to deal with large quantities of data and make better informed decisions.

Whether you’re headed into the social sciences, looking to work in IT, or just really love studying maths, studying statistics is for you! Statistics is used to underpin investigations, create, collate and test data, examine theories and demonstrate patterns. It is used in any job that depends on data, and is a useful skill to add to an existing qualification.

You’ll find stats useful for careers including work in teaching, health care, science, research, sustainability and environmental management, consulting, the private sector and not-for-profits.

Generally for the short courses we do not offer payment plans.  Please contact us directly if you need other options.

Yes this course is self paced.  Work at your speed through the material.  We have found students do best when submitting only one assignment at a time and waiting for feedback before submitting the next.
