Lancaster Postgraduate Statistics Centre – creating enterprise and innovation in teaching statistics across disciplines


The Lancaster Postgraduate Statistics Centre (PSC) encompasses all aspects of Postgraduate Teaching and Learning within the Mathematics and Statistics department. It is the only UK HEFCE-funded Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning that uniquely specialises in postgraduate statistics, and rewards the research and teaching excellence of the Statistics Group. The award-winning purpose-built PSC building opened in February 2008, and features many modern state of the art facilities. Our popular MSc courses and short course programme provide excellent training for those wishing to further their knowledge of statistics. We hold regular Teaching and Learning Seminars that focus on innovative teaching methods and technologies, and offer a visiting fellow scheme as well as specialist training at all levels through master classes and workshops run by experts in the field. This article describes the work of the PSC as we proceed past the third year of grant funding. For more information about activities in the Postgraduate Statistics Centre please see our website at
