Have a knack for numbers? Interested in statistics and health science?

Biostatisticians collect, interrogate, interpret and communicate data. They provide the specialised skills needed to draw useful conclusions from health-related research.

What will you do?

Our Graduate Certificate in Biostatistics is offered in conjunction with the Biostatistics Collaboration of Australia (BCA) and delivered entirely online. It is accredited by the Statistical Society of Australia. You will:

  • learn from leading teachers and biostatisticians Australia-wide
  • build a foundation in statistical theory and methods through four units of study
  • apply your learning to problems in professional practice.

Where could it take you?

You’ll graduate with a sound understanding of the principles of epidemiology and some aspects of biostatistics. You’ll gain a solid grounding for further study with the Graduate Diploma in Biostatistics and Master of Biostatistics, or a more general public health degree.
