Why study Statistics at UL?

University of Ljubljana is the only university in Slovenia, where the programme of Statistics is carried out. New master programme in Applied Statistics replaces and upgrades the interdisciplinary postgraduate programme Statistics, which started in the study year of 2002/2003. It is also a great basis for the doctoral study of Statistics, where the student can continue his path.

We  strive for international excellence, one proof of our high quality programme is the  EMOS label (European Master in Official Statistics), which is currently held by only 12 universities in Europe.

Given the positive feedback from this study, and the advantages of the interdisciplinary approach, the programme Applied Statistics is organized on inter-faculty level. The programme combines common mathematical background and specific knowledge form various fields of applied statistics. The joint programme brings together excellent teaching staff.

In god we trust, all others must bring data (W.E. Deming)

The main orientation of the second-cycle master programme is the application of acquired knowledge and interdisciplinarity that educates students to master statistical methods of a chosen scientific field.

The programme offers five modules (Biostatistics, Social Science Statistics, Economic and Business Statistics, Official Statistics, Technical Statistics). In comparison to the previous interdisciplinary postgraduate programme Statistics, the new programme offers two additional modules, economics-business and technical, reflecting the effectiveness and necessity of such a programme. Similarly to comparable programmes we decided to offer a separate second cycle Mathematical Statistics programme, which is run by the Faculty of Mathematic of the University of Ljubljana.

Fishing for hypotheses is like throwing a dart at a wall and then drawing a target around it. (A. Monette)

The programme is closely linked to comparable European programmes and included in European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) which enables mobility and participation in international students exchanges.
