Feedback from our graduates

Medical Statistics

Feedback is from the students on the Medical Statistics MSc programme.

  • 100% would recommend the course to someone with a similar background.
  • Good course, I especially like how focused it is on training students to become medical statisticians rather than completing just another degree.
  • The layout of the course, with taught weeks and then coursework, meant you got to thoroughly learn a topic and then apply it straight away. Enjoyed the external speakers' talks and the variety of topic areas that were covered throughout the year.
  • You provided me with a map of a career path which was unknown to me earlier. Beautiful field of statistics will always inspire me to do great work. Thank you again.
  • I enjoyed how applied the course was, how it has provided and developed key skills in statistical programming, and how lovely, approachable and enthusiastic the staff were.
  • I enjoyed that I had to write a lot of reports because I really wanted to improve my writing skills.
  • How hands-on it was. The real life data.
  • The whole experience. The lecturers were very approachable unlike in my undergraduate degree where they ran away after lectures were over. I liked the structure of the course. It was very well-organised.
  • This was a fantastic course which has increased my knowledge and confidence in statistics enormously.
  • Thank you for the course, it has been a tough year but very enjoyable.


Feedback is from the students on the Diabetes MSc, PGDip, PGCert programme.

  • The course is amazing with the best student support. I am always proud of having been a student on the MSc Diabetes.
  • I learnt so much which I have been able to use in my present role today. I would thoroughly recommend it to healthcare professionals.
  • It's a great course. There are a couple of core modules plus a variety of optional modules for those wishing to complete the full MSc. Theory sessions are underpinned by current evidence and trial data.
  • A mixture of learning techniques, both lecture-style but interactive too. Speakers who have experience in the real world.
  • At the University of Leicester, diabetes matters. They have the best people to deliver the science of diabetes. Highly recommended.
