What does The Data Lab expect from you?
Commit to attend and engage with the programme
To get the full benefit from the course, we expect our students to attend our events. Core events are compulsory for all students. The Data Lab has created this programme exclusively for you with the help of industry leaders, academic experts and government to give YOU the skills that the industry deems essential to the modern data scientist.
Attendance at core events is mandatory and absence will only be excused if suitable notice is sent in advance using The Data Lab MSc Absence Form to explain non-attendance. There will be lots of opportunities for you to engage with The Data Lab and our partners and to grow your personal on-line profile and networks. Read some of the testimonials and blogs to get a flavour of how the programme has enhanced the career opportunities for our recent graduates.
You should expect to be available for a maximum of 13 working days to attend the events and training offered by the programme. Events will be on-line, and in some cases scheduled for part-days. The commitment for the Innovation Challenge event is a maximum of 7 working days.
