I am currently studying an M.Sc. in pure mathematics (my dissertation focuses on category/set theory)). However recently I have decided that I wish to transition to a much more applied field. During my undergrad I studied almost all pure courses, with only one statistics module.
I have enrolled in an M.Sc. in operational research for next year where I will be studying a mix of operational research and statistics courses.
All of this is in the UK.
My question is, should I choose to, will it be possible/realistic for me to apply to do a Ph.D. in some sort of statistics? Not only in terms of actually getting accepted but also getting funding/actually being able to do this?
Thanks for any help
