SAMBa provides our students with a broad range of mathematical, computational and statistical skills, as well as beneficial collaboration with industry, government and applied sciences throughout their course.
Since graduating, many of our students are now working successfully in academia and industry.
"The ITTs can be really fun. The best part is that each time you participate you come out with a head full of new ideas and knowledge. Truly amazing"
"SAMBa provided a uniquely supportive yet challenging environment, in which one is encouraged to explore their interests and question their limits"
I had the opportunity to get involved in some international training and capacity building activities with international partners and was able to travel to Brazil and Mongolia to share my knowledge of statistical methods and applications, which was really rewarding.
I really valued the experience of being part of a cohort of students in SAMBa, which guaranteed that we were not doing our PhDs in isolation, despite working intensively on independent projects
I was able to use the SAMBa training in statistics, to support training workshops in Mexico and in fact took a break from my PhD to take on a statistics teaching assistant role.
"Being part of SAMBa is like being part of a little community: everyone is super supportive and there is always someone to talk to if you need it (usually with cake!). "
"SAMBa’s most remarkable feature is the variety of study options it offers"
"SAMBa offers high level training in statistical and applied mathematical disciplines, as well as direct engagement with industrial partners"
"SAMBa exposes students to a wide range of cutting edge statistical and mathematical research that will be useful to them in their PhD and later career"
