University of Edinburgh Data Science

Education and Skills

The Bayes Centre works in partnership with disciplines across the University to deliver data science education and training.

As we build on existing offerings and with new initiatives in the pipeline to deliver the University’s aims in Data Driven Innovation, there are training opportunities for people from a wide range of backgrounds.

When studying data science within the University of Edinburgh, either on campus or online, students have access to a high-profile, innovative data environment with credibility for large-scale external investment in this emerging cross-disciplinary theme.

Online Learning

For those interested in training while they work, our flexible online learning programmes are designed with working professionals in mind. Upskill with a short free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), take a single course from our selection of online postgraduate courses within the Data Science, Technology and Innovation programme, or study to certificate, diploma or masters (MSc) level completely online.

On Campus

Across the University, we offer a range of full-time and part-time on campus programmes at MSc and PhD level related to data science.
