Online MSc Data Analytics

Data is becoming an ever increasing part of modern life, yet the talent to extract information and value from complex data is scarce. This Masters will provide you with a thorough grounding in state-of-the art methods for learning from data, both in terms of statistical modelling and computation. You will also gain practical hands-on experience in carrying out various data-driven analytical projects. Previous study of Statistics or Computing Science is not required.

In addition to the conventional one-year MSc in Data Analytics we are offering a part-time online distance learning programme. 

Online MSc Programme

The MSc programme in Data Analytics by online distance learning is typically completed over three years. A faster route is also available, which allows for completing the programme in two years.
