MSc in Epidemiology & Biostatistics
University of Leeds, UK

This MSc in Epidemiology & Biostatistics aims to give scientists, 
mathematicians and clinicians the statistical skills they require to 
engage in all areas of quantitative health research, epidemiology and 
biostatistics. The course aims to encourage an enquiring attitude and a 
broader understanding of the research environment. Graduates will go on 
to work in the NHS, the pharmaceutical industry, University medical 
schools and research institutes, where they will directly contribute to 
work that will benefit people's health and quality of life.

Leeds is among the top ten universities for research in the UK, and is 
internationally acknowledged as a centre of excellence. The School of 
Medicine carries out internationally important translational research 
into complex chronic disorders including cardiovascular disease, 
diabetes, and cancer. As a student here, you will learn from academics 
and researchers at the cutting edge of international research, using the 
latest methods and technology to deliver inspirational learning and 
teaching.

The programme comprises a common core of taught components including 
transferable and professional skills:

birthweight in a large prospective birth cohort using Structural 
Equation Modelling (see
