Foundation Classes for MSc IT - " Data really influences everything that we do! " 

Join our data science-focused MSc IT foundation course for free.  




The MSc IT Foundation classes will run for two weeks and have been designed for prospective students who wish to join the MSc IT programme at The British College, in the upcoming academic year. The aim of the course is to help these future TBC students to bridge the gap between the knowledge that they have gained from their current qualifications and the knowledge and skills that they will need for the MSc IT Programme.

Throughout this course, we will be providing students with an overview of the programme-related modules that will be available to them - such as ‘The Basics of Data Science’, ‘Technology’, and ‘IS & Digital Innovations’. For the purpose of this course, all of these modules have been specially tailored in order to provide a solid foundation of knowledge for the students in their chosen field of study. This overview, along with the classes, will ensure that by the end of the course, students will have developed their core research, critical thinking, and report writing skills - thereby preparing them to join the MSc IT Programme with the confidence, skills, and knowledge that they need.
