    BEST EXPERIENCE: GOLDSMITHS, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON

    The flexibility provided with the course and the experienced professors at this cost-efficient university is what I always wanted to have. I applied to the university with the help of an online application form which cost me around £30.


    Course Curriculum - 

    My course is providing me with technical and practical skills to analyze the big data that is the key to success in future business, digital media, and science. While studying the course I am getting a chance to combine the statistical skills of data analysis and the computational skills needed to carry out this analysis on a vast scale. I am also learning the mathematical foundations of statistics, data mining and machine learning, and also applying these to practical, real-world data.
