MSc DATA SCIENCE (PART TIME 2 YEAR)

Assessment for Year 1

We’ll assess your work in different ways depending on the module content and learning objectives. These might include programming assignments, essays, class tests, problem sheets, laboratory reports, presentations and demonstrations.

Most modules are assessed through a mixture of coursework and exams, while some are entirely assessed by coursework. In your dissertation, you will be assessed particularly on your understanding and how you integrate what you’ve learnt to solve a real problem.

Assessment for Year 2

We’ll assess your work in different ways depending on the module content and learning objectives. These might include programming assignments, essays, class tests, problem sheets, laboratory reports, presentations and demonstrations.

Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.
