This course is accredited by CILIP

This CILIP-accredited course produces highly employable graduates for a rapidly expanding global job market. It was developed in collaboration with external organisations across a range of sectors to make sure you gain knowledge and learn skills that employers are looking for.

You'll learn the theory and the skills you need to support data-driven decision-making in organisations. The course covers three core areas: data management, data analysis and business insight. You'll get hands-on experience with data management and analysis. Industry experts contribute to the course, sharing their experience and talking you through examples of data science in action.

Our graduates are not just technically proficient. They're also keenly aware of broader issues such as data communication, privacy and ethics. That extra edge makes them even more attractive to employers.

Due to high demand our MSc Data Science starting in September 2019 is now closed to new applications.
