Develop the Right Skills

Ready for the Future

Data Scientists have changed the way big data is analysed and the way organisations identify trends and challenges as well as new opportunities. This means that big data has the potential to bring about enormous social and economic benefits. The BSc in Data Science has been developed to provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to conduct data-driven investigations and visual and advanced analytics by acquiring and managing data of all types.

Students will develop an in-depth understanding of data science and the techniques for analysis of quantitative and qualitative data to arrive at solutions. They will learn how the strategic use of big data can provide competitive advantage - underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation and consumer surplus.

Travel bursaries for UK students

We believe that travel can provide valuable opportunities, and we are committed to helping students make the most of their SPJ London experience. To assist with this, we will offer travel bursaries of £4,000 to applicants from the UK who study the semesters abroad. The bursary is intended to cover travel and living costs.


Practical Development

After completion of year 2 taught modules, students will engage in work-based learning via a 4-month (16 week) pass / fail internship. This can be undertaken either in the UK. This allows the student to gain first-hand experience within a real business environment to enhance their future employability. Students work on an agreed project relevant to their degree, with support from both a corporate and academic mentor. At the end of the internship students will submit a report which includes a critical reflection of their workplace experience and a final presentation


Students will acquire a core mathematical knowledge upon which they will build competences in computation, optimal decision making, probabilistic modelling, and statistical inference. By learning the theory behind data science, student will develop the capacity to stay up-to-date in a field that is evolving rapidly. A unique feature of the course is the requirement to undertake a final year, applied analytics capstone project that give students practical, hands-on experience in identifying and interpreting actionable information from raw data, and using them to make informed, mathematically valid decisions.


Students will:

Demonstrate understanding of data science and the theories that underpin it.

Interpret and apply advanced quantitative techniques to the analysis of large and complex data.

Demonstrate good knowledge and understanding in advanced areas of statistics.

Evaluate and apply data modelling methods and interpret descriptive and referential statistics for various quantitative data

Systematically understand and appreciate the importance of ethical behavior, negotiation, effective work habits, leadership and good communication with stakeholders
