Course summary

Course Overview

This course is offered as a four year programme, including an initial Foundation Year. You may also be interested in our three year BSc (Hons) Data Science course.

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Data science can be described, in simple terms, as the study of data. Data scientists are in high demand because they can interrogate data and use analytics to find patterns, trends and relationships in data sets. This information can then be used in everything from predicting consumer behaviour, to accelerating the development of promising new drugs.

This degree gives you a strong grounding in the technologies and systems that underpin data recording, storage and analysis, so you can provide valuable support to organisations wanting to use data to help with their decision-making.

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placements Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field.

We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special skills for work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time.
