The programme provides instruction in statistical theory and methods, and their application to the collection, collation, preparation, analysis and dissemination of information. It is therefore designed to provide practical training and to enhance the knowledge and skills of a statistician. In addition, the course seeks to meet the needs of those who have developed interest in the programme and are desirous of acquiring further knowledge in the field.
