Overview

This course provides flexibility in honours and postgraduate programs to cater for the widely varying interests and chosen specialisations of students. Statisticians need to be proficient in a wide range of statistical concepts and techniques. Many of these are either only touched on or omitted from undergraduate programs. An opportunity to broaden the students' knowledge-base with more advanced statistical techniques is provided in this course.

This course provides the opportunity for a student to pursue an area of study that will complement the other studies in the student's program. Typically, the course will consist of specialised investigations extending knowledge and skills in one of the areas listed in the Topics section below, or another Topic where appropriate and where a supervisor is available.

Students should nominate the topic they wish to study and then email the Course Examiner to enquire whether the topic and a suitable supervisor will be available in their semester of study, and for formal approval to enrol. As only one of the listed topics is chosen by each student the content of the course may vary from student to student. The weighting of the sub-topics within this unit depends on the topic chosen and will be discussed with the supervisor.
