What you will learn

Over nine months, you’ll learn how to extract, clean, analyse and transform data into actionable insights with the most industry-relevant Applied Data Science Bootcamp, built with industry Project Partners. You’ll advance your career by building an enviable portfolio to evidence the tools, techniques and libraries you’ve applied, enabling you to secure employment in a field projected to soar in demand by 28% by 2020.

  • This preparatory module covers all the essential programming skills, mathematical and statistical understanding,

    and knowledge of computer science principles you need to work in Data Science.
  • This module is designed to equip you with the skills to transform a real-world “dirty” dataset into a set of observations that can be analysed and then communicated to non-technical domain experts, executives and stakeholders.

  • This module is designed to ensure you understand the fundamental methods and industry best practices when developing machine learning models by applying a robust methodology. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation and optimisation of models for different task demands and contexts.

  • This module is designed to help you gain the skills to develop and communicate models with simple, subtle or complex relationships between variables. You will also receive hands-on training in time series analysis.

  • This module is designed to ensure you understand the fundamental principles behind ensemble models and are able to evaluate them rigorously. You will also gain an in-depth understanding of the theory behind Support Vector Machines (SVMs), and develop the skills you need to build and evaluate SVM models.

  • The first part of this module is designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills to run experiments using resources available on state-of-the-art cloud environments. The second part of this module will teach you how to work with modern databases to store and query structured and unstructured data.

  • This module is designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills to design or make decisions on the computational architecture or ecosystem used for processing, storing retrieving, and analysing data

  • This module is designed to ensure you have a strong understanding of how neural networks are constructed and how they operate. You will learn about different neural network architectures, ranging from simple single-layer architectures to complex deep learning architectures with many layers and more elaborate connection structures.

  • This module is designed to provide you with hands-on training in text processing, semantic analysis and sophisticated Machine Learning approaches.

  • This final training module is split into three core sections, building Recommender Systems, followed by model evaluation and interpretability, concluding with interview preparation and project allocations. Your final capstone project will be announced at the end of the session.

  • After completing the ten modules, you will work independently on an end-to-end project from our supporters and industry partners. We will match you with an exciting data science problem and help you make professional contacts in the field.

    Final projects come from a range of sectors. Some examples include:

    • Deep Learning: automatic image classification
    • Time Series: visualising a portfolio of stocks
    • NLP: topic modeling for crowdfunding campaigns
    • Working on your own work related project is also supported


  • Intermediate Python programming and use of the command line
  • Basic probability and linear algebra
  • Familiarity with Git


You’ll complete the most comprehensive data science curriculum, designed for professionals looking to upskill while keeping their job.
