The digital revolution has accelerated the amount of data generated every day to unprecedented levels. This creates an increasing need for us to develop skills to understand and extract value from this sea of data. Statistics provides the necessary tools to extract meaningful information from the data to better understand the world around us and to help us make informed decisions.
The UCL Statistics Summer School is aimed at providing you with a unique opportunity to be involved in a wide range of activities designed to give you a taste of student life in the department of Statistical Science at UCL. You will be immersed in a real-world problem that demonstrates a clear link between theoretical knowledge and how it can be applied in everyday life. You will use a popular statistical software to build your model in order to predict defaults on consumer loans, which is an important part in the decision of approving loan applications in the real world. You will also attend live lectures typically taken by our first-year undergraduate students in statistics and meet our academic staff and current students. If you want to use statistics to make a positive impact on the world, then this Statistics Summer School is for you!
