Study Data Science Degrees

Data science as a subject is multi-disciplinary, and covers more than one area. As a data scientist, you will use scientific and mathematical methods, algorithms, processes and systems to extract, organise and analyse data. Data sets come in all sizes, and can be both structured and unstructured, and you will be responsible for understanding how to work with that data. Data scientists can help to solve problems, make predictions, and aid growth in business.

An undergraduate degree in data science will give you a good foundation of knowledge in the main areas of the subject. You will cover the basic theoretical and practical aspects of data science. Modules you study might include an introduction to programming, maths statistics, data analysis and statistical methods.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical and computer laboratory based sessions. You may be presented with the opportunity to take part in a placement module, which would allow you to gain real-world experience as a data scientist.
