What you will study

The MSc Data Science has six core taught modules divided into two streams. At the beginning of each stream you will be taught the fundamentals of applied statistics, computing technology, programming and data base systems. Your existing analytical and technical skills will be developed to understand how to use the industry software used in the workplace, in turn preparing you for your individual research project.

Stream One: MSc Data Science

  • Applied statistics for data science
  • Data mining and statistical forecasting
  • Project management and research methodology

Stream Two: MSc Data Science

  • Principles of computing
  • Machine learning and decision making
  • Big data and analytics

Alongside these modules, you will complete an individual research project. Your project will be proposed and supported by local employers across a range of industries, including ONS Data Science Camps

Teaching

The MSc Data Science course is delivered through a series of lectures, practical classes and workshops where you will have the opportunity to put into practice what you have learnt via hands-on exercises and design projects. You will also be taught by a number of guest lecturers and have the option to visit workplaces.

The Data Science Masters offers a flexible approach to learning, allowing you to study full-time, part-time or through continuing professional development (CPD) for working professionals. The CPD route is an accessible pathway for employers to equip staff with further training opportunities to work towards a postgraduate qualification.

Full-time students will typically spend 12 hours in classes each week. For those studying part-time, this is reduced to six hours each week.

You will be taught by active researchers and leading professionals exposing you to current real-world problems, methodologies, and industry-standard techniques and software.

 

Assessment

Several modules are assessed entirely through coursework and some involve coursework and in-class examinations.
