    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    TAKING THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS DATA SCIENCE: NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF IRELAND, GALWAY

    Ireland stood out to be the best option for me. I got to know about the college from an online portal. There were many criteria on which I decided to take admission here. Unlike in other countries, the course was cost-effective. I particularly loved the hospitality and the way locals accept and behave with foreign nationals. Therefore, I filled up the application fee of €35, because it stood out to be the option for me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I was good at mathematics and coding and thus took up the course of data science. The data science course is designed in a way that In this we are taught how to build an outstanding portfolio of data science skills, while simultaneously studying a relevant Arts discipline to Joint Honors level. I have really enjoyed learning about how to analyse, interpret and visualise data correctly, and how valuable and useful these skills are in such a massive range of careers and sectors, now and even more so into the future.
