Mathematical and Statistical Consulting
Centre staff are available at certain times of the year
for work on small or large scale consulting projects.
Making the best use of our time
Assistance can be provided at any stage of a project. In order to

External Clients: $376 (incl GST) per hour*

engage us through UniQuest, they may charge extra to meet their costs.
University of Queensland clients
In the case of honours and postgraduate students, the expectation is that
their supervisors will provide the necessary funds. With University of
Queensland staff and students, fees are sometimes waived if a written
agreement can be obtained over joint authorship (where appropriate).
Alternatively, we are happy to talk with supervisors about joint supervision
of students (shared EFTSU).
Statistical consulting at the University of Queensland
Some faculties and institutes within the University of Queensland have their
own statistical advisors, so you would be well advised to
find out if one exists in your faculty and to make contact with them first.
