"I studied Data Science at Goldsmiths from 2016 to 2017. Actually, I jumped into the MSc in Data Science from my PhD programme in Social Sciences. The reason for this switch was the increasing importance of data science in all walks of life and sectors. I have since been offered a job at a renowned, world-class university in London.
The programme has been an amazing learning process. I have learnt as much in one year as in ten years of social sciences. The leadership of this programme was amazing as well – probably the best supervision and mentorship throughout my higher education period. Additionally, the syllabus was created in such a way that any lay person will get the chance to learn Machine Learning, coding, Natural Language Processing and Big Data. It is indeed a valuable program, with so much mentorship alongside as well as many project opportunities.
One of the projects I have been involved in, with the Data Science laboratory the department owns, was in the health sector. Specifically, using Machine Learning in predicting the time of remission in psychotic patients. It was a valuable and meaningful experience that lead to other opportunities, such as working in the health sector as a research assistant in Data Science, at Imperial College."
