The unique structure of this Data Science (Part Time 3 Year)  course from the University of East Anglia offers a truly part-time route for mature professionals to supplement their work with an accredited qualification. The MSc requires students to study one module per semester over a 3 year period. The timetable for this course is designed so that students are able to study alongside working, and contact time for each module is scheduled as a maximum of one day per week. 

The course follows the successful model of the KDD MSc (Industry Based), which we have run for our partner Aviva for over 14 years. During this time we have produced 80 outstanding graduates for Aviva, bolstering their workforce with Master’s-level recognition.

The course was short-listed as one of the most innovative collaborations between Business and a University by the East of England Development Agency.

This MSc is one of the few similar academic qualifications to have been conceived and developed to meet the specific needs of industry partners.

The course teaches skills which are directly relevant to industry, as the sector increasingly seeks to expand its use of data analytics.


Students will be able to see the direct impact of the course on their vocational work, as some of the modules will involve projects using their company’s data. This will allow students to integrate their university projects into their job, putting the principles they have learnt from the classroom into practice.

Companies will directly benefit from a relationship with the university which will involve access to state-of-the-art expertise in topical subjects such as data mining, statistics and information retrieval as well as artificial intelligence and database manipulation.
