MDataGov modules applications open until Friday 4 May

 

The Data Science Campus and the Learning Academy invite you to apply to take a module from the MSc in Data Analytics for Government (MDataGov).

You can take the modules as standalone course or as part of the full programme. But hurry – the closing date for applications is Friday 4 May 2018.

The current MDataGov providers are University of Southampton (PDF)Oxford Brookes University and University College London (full MSc only).

The offer is subject to demand and you will need to apply directly to the corresponding university, ensuring you have discussed funding for your studies with your line manager and budget holder.

We are working to expand the list of providers from the 2019/20 academic year to cover other UK regions.
