A stepping stone
The Graduate Diploma in Applied Statistics is useful if you want to upgrade your skills in statistics, or you do not have a statistics background and would like to join the industry.
If you have a qualification in another area, but wish to learn more about statistics, or move to a full statistics degree, the Graduate Diploma in Applied Statistics (GradDipApplStat) is a great stepping stone.
This qualification will give you an understanding and skills in the application of statistical methods, rather than an understanding of the underlying theory.
Massey’s statistics programmes are ranked as some of the best globally. Out of 800 of the world’s leading universities we were ranked in the top 200 in the QS World University Rankings.

Is this new treatment effective against breast cancer? What advertisements should my website display in order to increase my revenue?

This qualification, with further study, can help you move into a career in statistics.
