Start thinking like a data analyst

With big data central to modern business decision-making processes, data science skills are increasingly essential.

On this course, you’ll be introduced to principles of data analysis and data visualisation.

You’ll begin learning how to use statistical analysis to guide business decisions. You’ll use specialised data analysis tools to generate insights and learn how to present data visually and numerically.

This course is suitable for those new to data analysis and data visualisation or those who want a reminder and fresh perspectives. You will need to be comfortable thinking in terms of percentages and have a level of comfort with using computers.

We use free software. Parallel threads enable you to choose between using online software that requires only an internet connection and browser, installed “point-and-click” software, or learning to code in R.

    I think the course content is great and I appreciate the option to do the practical work in R, however I was expecting to learn to use R better in this, and this course just uses one particular package related to their own software. I wouldn't recommend the course as a way to learn data analysis in R.

    Good course. Well structured, paced and suitable for beginners. Main drawback is that it does not teach any proficiency in the actual programming of R.
