“This is not a bootcamp, it’s not where you go to learn coding, it’s where you go to actually become a fully-fledged data scientist. It’s supposed to develop you into an industry-relevant data scientist, so that's why I chose this, because other programmes would focus on teaching Python, and at the end of the day, you don't actually get the fundamentals or the real background of everything, and how to apply that on a larger scale…currently in my job as a data scientist, I have to build business cases and make recommendations from analytical models….and in the end, I have to convince management to make certain types of Investment.”  

— Giwa., Current Learner


“What I really like about the course is that there are lots of examples which relate back to business and how it can be applied in practical settings. I think what the course has done a very good job on is showing me how the theory is applied for real and I think that’s really important”.  

— James., Current Learner
