- They have proven knowledge and understanding of Statistics which is based on their general secondary education and, while supported by advanced scientific textbooks, also includes views arising from current developments at the forefront of their field of knowledge.
- They have developed those knowledge acquisition skills that they need to pursue further studies with a high degree of autonomy
