The aims of APTS are to equip first-year PhD students in statistical sciences in the UK with clear "mental maps" of some important areas in the discipline, and to help them gain confidence and resources (analytical and computing tools, literature entry-points) so that they are enabled to find out more for themselves. The intention is thereby to address (as far as UK statistics PhD students are concerned) the issue raised in the 2004 International Review of UK Research in Mathematics, that New PhD’s from the UK usually have less breadth and experience than their peers from other countries (Section 2.2 on Post-Graduate Education).
