Mathematical and Statistical Foreknowledge
Holders of a degree mentioned in the website section on diplomas and degrees should normally have acquired sufficient foreknowledge to start the Master of Statistics. Nevertheless, we highly recommend you to have a look at the summary of topics in mathematics and statistics which are considered as prerequisite knowledge in all or many courses. In this matrix you can see the mathematical and statistical concepts that are important, ranged per course in the Master of Statistics.
Math for Stats E-summer School
In order to be better prepared for your Master of Statistics studies at Hasselt University, we have developed an e-learning module of Mathematics useful for Statisticians (Math for Stats E-summer School ). The e-module takes place over a period of 3 weeks each year in the period August/September. At the end of each week a quiz is made available where you can test your mathematical skills. The self-study material contains the key mathematical concepts, examples, exercises and R-software code. During the e-learning module you have the opportunity to ask questions about the mathematical concepts (via a discussion forum).
The purpose of this module is to refresh and/or enlarge your mathematical and statistical knowledge. The module is fully available online and consists of several self-study documents. In this manner you can study at your own pace. The mathematical topics covered in this e-learning module are very important during your masters study in statistics at our university.
All (future) students that will enroll in the Master of Statistics will receive an invitation email to participate in the E-summer School in the period June/July. Students need to registered before the end of June to be able to participate in the E-summer School.
