We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.
All modules are assessed entirely through coursework based activities ranging from reports, demonstrations, and presentations and coding tasks.
Employment prospects are strong in this rapidly growing and demanding industry. There are a number of careers available to those trained in data science - students could go on to be data scientists, statistics officers, business analysts, predictive modellers or computer programmers, these will continue to grow as organisations are required to adapt to improving technologies. Graduates may also progress on to a PhD or research degree.
