|University Of Edinburgh Launches New Courses For Students. by Capital2021: 2:01pm On May 04|
The University of Edinburgh is launching an updated range of short courses, aimed at helping people develop the data skills that have been identified as vital for economic recovery.
This range of new courses funded by the Scottish Funding Council, which provide non-traditional routes for individuals to access courses in data skills, have been created across a range of subject areas, supported by the Bayes Centre, the University of Edinburgh’s hub for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
The courses offer a stepped approach, allowing learners to pick the most relevant parts of the training, only undertaking that which meets their needs. This approach can allow learners to progress from entry to an advanced level as their career progresses, or to kick start their career in a new direction.
Courses are delivered by areas of expertise from across the University of Edinburgh and facilitated by the Bayes Centre, as part of the Data-Driven Innovation (DDI) Programme within the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal. This allows for a unique opportunity whereby learners can access a vast range of skills that would be unable to be delivered in a traditional format.
The University of Edinburgh also offers a number of free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) through its partners Coursera and edX.
MOOCs such as Data Ethics, AI and Responsible Innovation, Statistics: Unlocking the World of Data and Data Science in Stratified Healthcare and Precision Medicine offer learners a free entry point into the world of data science in a flexible and free format.
