Stats Desk, the University’s statistical consultancy service, is the longest-running help service on campus. It began on 1 April 1994 as a three month trial!
Run by the SMSAS Statistics group, the service is free of charge and is supported by the Unit for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (UELT).
The core users of the service are postgraduate students undertaking research projects and who need some “quants” advice. Stats Desk can also assist academic colleagues, and the supervisors of research students are welcome to come along to appointments.
Undergraduate students wanting help with coursework should instead use the Maths and Stats clinic run by SLAS.
