"Rigorous and exciting data science programme"
I developed many skills at the frontier of data science and had a lot of fun doing the ADS bootcamp. The delivery of the course from the instructors, and the design of the homeworks, were excellent; as were the constant support from the CS team (including... Read More
"Fantastic course materials, instructors and classmates; exactly what I was hoping for"
With an ever-increasing variety of options, I found trying to decide how I wanted to further my data science skills challenging. I'd already completed a number of online MOOCs (such as Andrew Ng's famous Machine Learning Coursera course), however knew... Read More

You will accomplish a lot in a relatively short space of time. Cambridge Spark is partnered with leading players in industry and academia so the course content is designed with real-world problems in mind. Provided you keep practising, you will leave with a brand new set of industry class skills.
The course is very involved and extra reading around the topics is required. The breadth and depth of topics is equivalent to a masters in my view! Balancing a full-time job with the course has, therefore, been quite challenging. Fortunately my employer has been as generous as possible with study time. Persistence with the course does pay off, though, and you will get there if you keep at it. The rewards are twofold; the skills you get, and most importantly the confidence you gain in having worked through a problem and passed. I would thoroughly recommend it.
