MSc in Data Science
Master of Science in Data Science
Mode of Study
A fully online Master degree from the first university in the European Union to earn a 5-Star rating for online/ distance learning.
The programme is conducted completely online, with three courses delivered over 14 weeks each semester on an e-Learning Environment (Moodle), which includes multiple embedded synchronous and asynchronous learning activities, such as webinars, online chats, discussion fora and wikis. In addition, recorded lectures are designed to enhance student interactivity and active learning by including engaging slides with clickable tabs, interactive quizzes, drag-and-drop activities, matching activities and opinion polls.
Our programme follows standardised and validated pedagogical approaches, ensuring constant tutor-student interaction (webinars, online chats, discussion fora), student to student interaction (online chats, discussion fora, wikis), and student-material interaction (recorded lectures, additional resources).
Our dynamic programme is tailored to the needs of fulltime working professionals and new graduates. By choosing the number of courses per semester, students have the opportunity to determine their time schedule, study pace and workload. In addition, the distance learning mode, comprising online interactive lectures, tutorials, activities, and assignments, allows study outside normal working hours, as well as autonomy and control.
The MSc in Data Science programme is delivered over 3 semesters (18 months full-time, or up to 4 years part-time) and features 6 core courses and 3 elective courses, from a selection of 8 electives.
