SAS is a platform for programming, data analysis and data visualisation. It is widely used in industry for data analysis and business intelligence. SAS is not freely available to staff and students at the University; if your course requires you to use SAS your lecturers will provide information on how to access SAS in your department. Staff members should contact their local IT support if they would like to use SAS for their research.
