Master of Biostatistics 2011


"Some of my colleagues had already completed this program and were very positive about it so I decided to look into the course. It was very well designed to cater to the needs of students from different backgrounds, specifically, to study biostatistics systematically. The subjects were delivered online which not only makes it possible for me to juggle work, study and family commitments, but it also gave me access to the best teaching staff across all of Australia.

The Master of Biostatistics provided me with the opportunity to fill gaps in my statistical knowledge and enhance my understanding of other topics. The subjects on epidemiology and public health were very enjoyable, practical and relevant to my work as a biostatistician. This course has significantly enhanced my career prospects and in the future I am keen to apply my statistical and research skills in a range of different areas and develop my career as a statistician and researcher.

I highly recommend the course to those interested in biostatistics, epidemiology, and public health."

“This course made it possible for me to change my career, and move out of social research and into population health research.
I found the course challenging, particularly as I had not studied mathematics since high school and did not do an undergraduate course in statistics. However, there were courses available to refresh my maths skills and to introduce statistical theory.
I enjoyed the online nature of the course as it was very flexible. I thought the variety of subjects covered was excellent, and prepared me well for working as a biostatistician.
I would encourage others to do this course if they are interested in public health, epidemiology or clinical research.
I hope to use the knowledge I gained to continue working on challenging research projects looking at improving the health of disadvantaged populations in Australia.”

"I was originally working in General Practice Data Management and needed to update my skills. The Masters of Biostatistics was delivered completely online, and this was what attracted me to the course. As a Biostatistician you'll be asked many different questions and you'll need to have the knowledge to confidently address these. The Masters course provided me with both the depth and range required. The area is highly specialised and as such there are many opportunities for people with such a qualification."

"I was training to be a cardiologist when I started the program. Cardiology is one area of medicine which is fortunate to have a strong tradition of high quality clinical trials which address key areas of practice.

The Master of Biostatistics course has given me a comprehensive understanding of clinical trial design, analysis and interpretation of trial results. This has allowed me to successfully incorporate the available evidence into my clinical practice. It also has enabled me to design, implement and analyse clinical research programs both on my own and in collaboration with others."
