Ubiqum Student 2016

"I was astounded how much I learnt in such a short time. The ethos of their education platform is ‘to learn by doing’. This is certainly the case. By the end of week 3, I was already proficient in using Machine Learning Techniques and presenting findings as a data analyst. With no prior knowledge! Having your fellow students to bounce off, we all became great friends and discussed all things data. The course is very insightful, and opened a window into a world I never knew existed. All the staff at Ubiqum are super friendly, and you can approach them with anything. They will go out of their way to get things sorted and make sure your time at Ubiqum is enjoyable. "
