Personal Development for Graduate Data Analysts

Graduate data analysts and data scientists looking to reskill and enjoy personal development should consider Postgraduate study and working towards their master’s. Not only do Postgraduates earn on average 18% more than first degree holders (according to Higher Education Policy Institute), but the most advanced data specialists can earn in excess of £100,000 in a single year.

Of course, it can take years to get to that level, and there needs to be appropriate training and opportunities for upskilling throughout your career. The MSc Data Analytics and Technologies course at the University of Bolton is a great place to start, and our tutors will work with you to develop a personal development plan to help you reach your career goals.

Why develop your skills?
The UK data science skills shortage has already reached crisis point, according to experts. This means that data analysts are in demand, not just now, but long into the future as businesses across the country attempt to play catch-up. Developing your skills with us not only helps to fast-track your career, but it also puts you in front of some of the most elite, progressive and forward-thinking companies by enhancing your CV.

Why study at the University of Bolton?
If you’re interested in personal development and taking your career to the next level, our MSc Data Analytics and Technologies programme could be for you. Our tutors are supportive, personable and friendly, and are proud to know their students by name, and not their student number. They will work with you to establish your passions, dreams and career ambitions, and will ensure you have a supportive and friendly learning environment to grow your skills.

Part-time personal development programme
At the University of Bolton, we’re extremely career-focused. That’s why we allow our students to study part-time so they can continue with their work commitments. This means we’re able to take on graduate data analysts and data scientists who have already been working in the field for a number of years.

We also rank in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), as well as in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2021. Plus, students have voted us No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for three years running (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019), so there’s nowhere better to pursue your career training.
