STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

 

We know we offer an incredible learning environment and truly expert coaching – but don’t just take our word for it!

 

Stacey is a current student with us and has the following to say about our great syllabus and teacher…

 

“Classes are all going very well!

 

The courses are well structured and the teacher is very knowledgeable on the subject and a very good instructor.

 

I am finding the class useful and there are number of topics that are covered that are not in Udemy or other sites.”

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

 

Deciding to change the course of your career and become a data scientist is a big decision – so we understand you have a lot of questions.

 

Something we get asked a lot about is about is graduate salaries…

 

Q: How much will I earn when I leave?

 

A: Initial salaries are expected to range from £25k to £55k. The wide range is because our courses attract a wide range of skill sets.

 

According to Glassdoor, the average UK data scientist salary is £42,000 – though other sources such as Payscale estimate this to be £46,000, while IndeedIT Jobs Watch and Adzuna work it out to be £60,000.

 

Using Glassdoor’s more modest figures, this equates to a median salary of £36,500 for a junior data scientist in the UK, and £65,000 for a more experienced data scientist.

 

Once you are managing your own team, very experienced and in demand, the sky really is the limit – £80,000 is about the beginning.

 

So depending on your previous skills and experience, and the level at which we are able to place you, you could earn anything from £25k to £55k initialy, easily progressing to around £80k after several years at a senior level.

 

Remember, although starting salaries vary greatly based on personal circumstance, this is a very in-demand field and career (and salary) progression should be rapid if you do well – especially compared to other tech jobs.
