Part of the Web Science Institute at the University of Southampton, Southampton Data Science Academy courses are tutor-led by industry-leading academics and thought-leaders in the field of data science.
Watch the video to hear UK Skills Champion for AI Dame Wendy Hall explain the value of our courses:
The Academy was established to bridge the data skills gap in today’s increasingly data-driven world through world-class training and education. Through our pioneering work, our expertise in data science is transforming the way data is collected, integrated and converted into knowledge and evidence – informing decision-making across both private and public sectors.
The Academy has now trained, assessed and certified more than 1,000 students across insurance, actuarial, legal, financial services professional and in the public sector.
Our Fundametals of Data Science (Technical and Non-Technical) courses are CPD accredited, meaning they have reached the Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks.
We’re also founding partners of the UK’s Open Data Institute (ODI) in London’s Tech City – established to lead businesses across the UK in harnessing and leveraging the power of data.
