The aim is to use key concepts such as conditional probabilities, random variables, distribution functions, expectation values and the central limit theorem, to manage a variety of probability problems, even tricky ones. The aim is as well to handle basic statistical questions by point estimates, confidence intervals and tests of hypotheses.

Distance

To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
