Diploma in Statistical Studies

NFQ Level 7, Special Purpose Award

This Diploma programme is available only to students of a partner Chinese university, with which UCC has a bilateral agreement under Statute 263 of the National University of Ireland. Having studied for three years at a partner Chinese university, students will study for one year at University College Cork, taking the programme to a value of 60 credits as outlined below.


To be admitted students will normally be required to:

(a) successfully complete and pass credits equivalent to three full academic years' study of their degree programme at a partner Chinese university, with which UCC has a bilateral agreement under Statute 263 of the National University of Ireland; and
(b) satisfy English language proficiency requirements as set out by University College Cork for non-EU students.

Students from non-partner institutions will be assessed for eligibility for the programme on a case by case basis and will be subject to the approval of the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science.

To be considered for the award of the Diploma in Statistical Studies, a student must have satisfactorily attended, for at least a full academic year, undergraduate modules to the value of 60 credits as part of a programme of study agreed by the School of Mathematical Sciences and the partner Chinese university and subject to timetabling and other constraints. Between 20 and 30 of these credits should be chosen from undergraduate Statistical course modules offered in CK407 outlet degrees. A student must enrol for ST4099 (30 credit Project); modules are selected in consultation with, and with the approval of, the Head of the Department of Statistics, School of Mathematical Sciences, UCC. Students may take up to 10 credits from other undergraduate modules in other subjects with the approval of the department/school offering the module(s). Where a course module has prerequisites (as specified in the module description), a student must satisfy these prerequisites by demonstrating, to the satisfaction of the School, that a similar module has been passed in the partner Chinese university. The full programme of study is subject to final agreement by the School of Mathematical Sciences and the partner Chinese university.
