Taught by active researchers and developed with industry experts, you'll learn the data, information and analytical skills to become a critical data professional.

You'll analyse and critically evaluate a wide range of different real-life problems from a data science perspective. Whether it be studying data from a sports team to improve performance, using real-world data as part of the solution to climate change, preparing for spikes in hospital admissions or analysing business expenditure - data science is an evolving field. 

You won't just be learning how to read and analyse data - you will be learning how to use data to make ethical decisions. The course has sustainability, equality, diversity and ethical practice at its core. You will be prepared for a career where you can use data-driven solutions to have a positive impact on society.

On our course you'll:

  • become a dynamic, forward-thinking problem solver with a responsible approach to data and information
  • learn how to present data to different audiences and stakeholders, using visualisation and statistical methods
  • develop the skills you need to collaborate effectively with others to solve data-related problems and create responsible data solutions.

Opportunities for study abroad, work-based placements and developing your personal portfolio will put you in a strong position for the future.

The course is extended to four years if you opt to do a placement year or year abroad.
