    A great way to switch from Academia to a commercial Data Science role

    Being still undecided whether to leave academia or not, I decided to participate in the S2DS bootcamp to get a flavour of what the life of a Data Scientist in a commercial environment would be. And all I can say is that this has been a great decision.

    I opted for the S2DS Virtiual course because, due to family constraints, I would have not been able to move for 5 weeks to London, although I was a bit skeptical about the online format. I knew people who participated in S2DS London...

    Dr

    I had a previous experience as a Post-Doc in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology within the academic set-up before enrolling on the 'SCIENCE TO DATA SCIENCE VIRTUAL' . I was interested in gaining experience in the applicatrion of machine learning to 'BIG DATA'. S2DS provided me with an excellent opportunity to do just that in the sense that I had the opportunity of developing my machine learning skills on a project which involved analysis of large datasets provided by an online marketing co...

    A truly great Data Science experience

    Science 2 Data Science, offered my the necessary experience to help transition from academia to industry. I have a very theoretical PhD, and i wanted a platform to show off programming and data science skills that i had aquired through self teaching. S2DS London was this perfect platform! 

    I got to work for 5 weeks in an intensive but fun work environment with like minded collegues who all shared the same goal. What was extremely pleasing was that i loved the project i was assign...

    The golden ticket to data science

    From the day I decided to switch from academia to data science; this course was on the top of my list. I was originally planning to do the on site course but the on-line course tunred out to be the better option (no UK visa hassles for me). The course was intense but for a good reason and it gave me a sense of how data science roles are in real commercial settings. Our team of three, had great mentors both from course side and the company providing our porject. Although I already had quite...

    Best jump start for a Data Science career

    If you are in academia and wonder if data science would be a good or feasible idea for a new career (hint: it is), this is what you are looking for. 

    S2DS gave me the hands-on experience I needed to be confident about my potential and perspectives in data science. This is something that any MOOC or Kaggle competition would never be able to give you. I can't stress enough the importance of working in a team for a company whilst trying to solve a business problem. The value of such...

    S2DS is the reason I have a data science job

    Without a doubt the best career decision I've made. I wouldn't be in my current data scientist position without it!

    The S2DS London programme was such a great experience. Although at first it can feel quite daunting, you'll quickly find out that everyone is like-minded and supportive so it never felt like a competition. 

    I had initially expected formal lectures on the technical aspects of data science learning about algorithms and new technologies so I ...

    Excellent programme!

    This is primarily an intensive programme for working on a real-life data-science project - there is very little taught content, just some 1-2 hour seminars in the first week, and some YouTube tutorials to follow in preparation for the programme. However these are very good. The lack of taught content is why I gave 3 stars for "Curriculum" - it is not extensive, but it is good.
    Don't do this programme though if you want a lot of formal grounding in programing or data-scienc...

    A true data science hub, made available by exceptional people in the field.

     Having completed my S2DS experience, I feel so thankful that I had the opportunity to participate in the 2021 cohort. Even though the course was virtual it felt so vivid and engaging. 
    From the beginning to the end, the organizers have put such a great effort to plan a hands-on experience, involving exciting real-life data science projects, and made sure that the interaction between all members of the cohort is constantly up. 
    S2DS is a great opportunity for anyone looking to dive...

    S2DS London 2020

    This is a wonderful course for PhD graduates in the Natural Sciences who are interested in transitioning into data science. The course was brief and tough, most of it was self-taught, which is perfectly suitable for fast learners with a PhD. The experience of communicating with the company and working in a team was especially valuable. Lots os additional technical help is provided, and there is a rich framework of talks and events that help the candidates navigate their ways into data sc...

    Data Science Bootcamp

    Allow me to give the take home message at the start - if you are from academics and want to get working experience of data science and industry, the five weeks at S2DS are of great value.

    Given that we have a great deal of technical training in our academic career, it may look like doing data science is not very different. I believe this program will change your opinion like it changed mine.

    Like most of th...

    A very positive experience

    I was looking to gain some experience in Data Science and chose the S2DS programme as it offered good exposure to practical data science projects and provided the opportunity to develop the skills required to pursue a career in data science.

    The programme is well structured and the mentors provide good support and help you through the difficult parts of the programme. Though there are no technical training or courses in data science, the mini-MBA helps in understanding the role o...
