Details
For Near-STEM students, the normal entry requirements for the programme are a good (2.1 or above) Honours Degree (or equivalent) in a STEM subject (e.g. Mathematics, Engineering, Physical Sciences etc). If a student has a relevant STEM degree, then they will be considered ‘Near-STEM’. They will be offered the opportunity to participate in the Data Science Core Skills bootcamp but will not be required to participate/attend. For Far-STEM students, the normal entry requirements for the programme are a good (2.1 or above) Honours Degree (or equivalent). The subject of the degree is not defined, since (a) many different, disparate subjects might have a Data Science relevance (e.g. Business, Geography), and (b) some students might possess a non- STEM degree but have relevant experience (e.g. from employment). For far-STEM students who do not possess a good Honours Degree or equivalent, applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
