Master of Biostatistics, Monash University and BCA Star Graduate 2021
Post PhD, I was fairly confident in using statistical software packages to perform a specific set of functions but I really wanted to understand the mechanics underpinning complex statistics. With the encouragement of Prof Andrew Forbes, I enrolled in the BCA Master of Biostatistics (at a snail’s pace i.e. one unit per semester in order to balance my fulltime workload). The course has given me a really solid foundation and improved my ability to design research projects with sound methodology and statistical analysis plans. Even though the course is delivered online, the tutors used innovative ways to engage with students which was fantastic! I strongly recommend the course to anyone who is interested in delving further into biostatistics because it is an incredibly rewarding experience.
