- Entry requirements
Generally a minimum 2:1 honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant discipline is required. However the MSc in Data Science course is a specialised, and research focused course and not all undergraduate degrees will provide the appropriate background. Successful applicants will usually have at least an A-level or equivalent in mathematics and/or have received quantitative skills training as part of their undergraduate programme or professional experience. Potential applicants are advised that transcripts will be checked to ensure appropriate material has been covered.
- Number of places/applicants
Due to the high volume of applications received this year, there is an application deadline for overseas (non UK/EU) applicants of Monday 27 November 2017. Applications received after this date will be placed on a waiting list should places come available.
We will continue to consider applications from UK/EU students beyond 27 November 2017 due to the nature of the typical application window within the UK/Europe.
