Find out more about the TEF.

The Data Science and Analytics with Foundation BSc Honours offers an entry route for those students who do not have the required entry requirements for all three-year degree pathways in the department of computer science. The foundation year route may also be of interest if you do not feel ready to start the first year of an undergraduate course, perhaps because you have been out of education for some time or you feel your current qualifications will not equip you to attempt a three-year undergraduate computing course directly.

In a constantly changing global environment, the massive use of social networks and the Internet of Things are generating a huge and fast-growing amount of data. Data processing is carried out through increasingly complex and sophisticated computer capabilities and algorithmic models, and involve advanced storage technologies such as cloud computing.

As a result, there is currently a great need for professionals who can process, understand and present this data in an appropriate and effective way. These skills are much needed by businesses, which collect data from customers, partners and from the market in which they operate to support evidence-based decision making. Governments rely on data to improve their policies and deliver better services as well.

This course will give you a combination of analytical, technical and presentation skills that will allow you to convert data into valuable insights that support decision making.
