1. Aarhus University - Statistics The teaching at the university is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as the lecturers are active researchers. As an MSc student, you will benefit from the down-to-earth, informal atmosphere between staff and students, particularly when writing your thesis, which carries considerable weight in the final year of the programme.
2. Columbia University - Department of Statistics The department has expanded in recent years to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of our research and teaching portfolio.
We have several regular seminar series during Fall and Spring semesters as well as other activities.
3. Department of Statistics - Stanford University Welcome to the Department of Statistics at Stanford University. We are located in Sequoia Hall, at the southwest corner of the intersection of Serra Street and Lomita Mall. Statistics has been taught at Stanford University since 1924 under Harold Hotelling. The program became a full department at Stanford in 1948, and we moved into our new building as part of the first Science and Engineering Quad (SEQ) in February of 1998, our 50th anniversary.
The department's goals are to acquaint students with the role played in science and technology by probabilistic and statistical ideas and methods, to provide instruction in the theory and application of techniques that have been found to be commonly useful, and to train research workers in probability and statistics. There are courses for general students as well as those who plan careers in statistics in business, government, industry, and teaching.
4. Department of Statistics - University of California, Berkeley We are a community engaged in research and education in probability and statistics. In addition to developing fundamental theory and methodology, we are actively involved in statistical problems that arise in such diverse fields as molecular biology, geophysics, astronomy, AIDS research, neurophysiology, sociology, political science, education, demography, and the U.S. Census. We have forged strong interdisciplinary links with other departments and areas of study, particularly mathematics, computer science, and biology, and actively seek to recruit graduate students and faculty who can help to build and maintain such links. We also offer a statistical consulting service each semester.

7. London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) - Department of Statistics The department has an international reputation for development of statistical methodology that has grown from its long history of active contributions to research and teaching in statistics for the social sciences. The professors in the department are: Lenny Smith and Qiwei Yao, with visiting professors Jianqing Fan, Peter Hall, Ruediger Kiesel and Jozef Teugels and emeritus professors Anthony Atkinson, David Bartholomew, Jim Durbin, Ragnar Norberg, Howell Tong and Henry Wynn. The head of department is Dr Irini Moustaki.
We run three undergraduate honours degree courses: BSc Actuarial Science, BSc Business Mathematics and Statistics and BSc Statistics with Finance. These courses enable students who have enjoyed maths at A-level to develop their skills in mathematics and statistics. BSc Actuarial Science can also lead to exemptions from the 100 series of the Institute of Actuaries examinations. Emphasis is given to areas with practical applications in commerce, insurance, finance and government.
8. McGill University - Department of Mathematics and Statistics The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is located in Burnside Hall on McGill's downtown campus in Montréal (Québec). The Department boasts an impressive faculty of leading researchers in a diverse range of fields including Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Category Theory, Combinatorics, Differential Geometry, Differential Equations, Discrete Mathematics, Mathematical Physics, Number Theory, Probability, and Statistics.
9. National University of Singapore (NUS) - Department of Statistics and Applied Probability The Department of Statistics and Applied Probability (DSAP) was established in 1998 with the goals to advance statistical science, and, ultimately by its application, to improve and provide adequate services to our community. To achieve these goals, the Department of Statistics and Applied Probability offers training and research programs to develop and apply innovative statistical methods to problems of economics, finance, banking business, insurance, marketing research, engineering, human health and disease, including basic biomedical sciences.
In addition to offering a Bachelor of Science degree in Statistics, DSAP also offers degrees at both Master's and doctoral levels. These programs are appropriate for the student who has a mathematical or statistics background. The undergraduate curriculum offers students the most needed probability and statistical knowledge; the graduate program prepares them to conduct research and scientific investigations in collaborative environments.
10. Peking University - Department of Probability and Statistics, School of Mathematical Sciences Probability and Statistics---an international conference in honor of P.L. Hsu’s 100th birthday, will be held at Yingjie Conference Center, Peking University, Beijing, China, on July 5-7, 2010.
Researchers, professors and graduate students in probability and statistics are welcome to attend the conference. Registration fee is not needed, and lunches will be provided. If you plan to attend, please register (50 seats available). We will confirm your registration by email. Please arrange the traffic and accommodation by yourself.
