This course equips beginners with the theoretical knowledge and technical skills to apply the powerful insights of data science to their work; it also provides the foundations for a career in Data Science. The course emphasises a hands-on approach to learning data skills; offering a number of interactive online exercises that will let you try out many of the techniques and concepts covered in the taught material. The technical aspects of the course are implemented using Python and we strongly recommend you have some experience with Python or a similar language.
