Find the data science and machine learning course for you

Make a splash in a growing sector with a degree in data science or machine learning

Why study data science and machine learning?

We’re swimming in more data than is humanly manageable, which means there’s a huge demand for professionals who can enhance their ability to make sense of the data with artificial intelligence and computer analysis.

Studying a course that allows you to develop skills and expertise in data science and machine learning means you can step up to the roles in statistics, scientific techniques and programming that turn data into insight across research and business. 

You’ll qualify with the skills demanded by any industry that uses data: from astronomical bodies to protein structures, from medical diagnosis to marketing personalisation. Follow your interests through the mathematical underpinnings of the subject, the computer programming, and the practical application of your studies, as you prepare for a career  working with the defining resource of the 21st century.

Discover Data Science and Analytics

Understanding data helps us to understand the future. In everything we do, data science and analytics provides the answers that shape our world. To manage this changing world successfully, we need to know whats happening. From social media management to financial forecasting. From cosmology to climate change. And beyond our own planet, our knowledge of the universe is expanding. Each new discovery provides us with a vast amount of data that needs to be understood and analysed. 

As set out in the National Data Strategy, data is now the driving force of the world’s modern economies. It fuels innovation in businesses large and small and has been a lifeline during the global coronavirus pandemic.
