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 Diploma 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
  • study statistical theory and methods in depth
  • apply your learning to problems in professional practice.

Where could it take you?

You’ll be prepared for employment in medical and epidemiological research, and government departments and agencies. You could work for a pharmaceutical or biotech company. Perhaps you’ll go on to a Master of Biostatistics and help design and execute world-changing clinical trials.
