Study type Taught


Learn to tell a story from data and become immersed in Big Data techniques. This unique postgraduate course is your opportunity to develop specialist knowledge in data science and prepare for one of the most in-demand roles.

Defined by Harvard Business Review as the sexiest job in the 21st century, there has been major interest and investment in data science. Such is the interest that demand has outstripped supply. Major global organisations including Google and Microsoft, and even public organisations, such as the NHS, are struggling to find qualified data scientists.

Developed as a postgraduate conversion pathway – the first of its kind in the UK - the course is suitable for students from any discipline with a demonstrable mathematical aptitude.
