What students think about Southampton Data Science Academy (Southampton University)

    Alexia Jarvis, Fundamentals of Data Science (Non-Technical)

    "The flexibility was brilliant. I work 8-5 every day, so I missed out on some things but I was able to access them later. I didn’t have to be online at a specific time, and there was a range of time options for the individual tutorials."

    Aaron Roberts, Data Science for Digital Marketing

    "It was great to be able to work when I had time, fit it around my work schedule and do bits at home or at the weekend if need be."

    Harriet Ash, Data Science for Digital Marketing

    "The tutors were very knowledgeable. I found that I didn’t have lots of questions as it was all clear and easy to follow, but it was good to check in with real people who I knew were there for me if I needed them."
