Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

Prof Dip in Data Analytics

    I’m currently doing cybersecurity there and it’s a lot more intense than I expected, probably masters level, you would need to put a lot of work in

    Thanks Ash, I read an earlier thread that suggested something similar. The programmes do seem to be fairly intense and require you to put the time in. The Prof Dip DA has 4 modules at Masters level so you’re right about that. Are you managing the workload okay? Do you think it would be prudent to have some experience or background before taking something like this on?

    Just looking for honest feedback if don’t mind sharing 🙂

    I’ve just started and it’s manageable, it’s very interesting and it shouldn’t take up too much time if I’m smart which I’m not 😂

    Haha, I’m sure you’re much smarter than you suggest. Cybersecurity is an interesting field but you’d need really to know your stuff. Best of luck with it 👍

    Do a free one online with springboard. The courses are what you make of them - you can do loads of work and learn a lot, or do the bare minimum - you'll get your piece of paper at the end anyway, as will everyone else who enrols. Hundreds of people will graduate with diplomas/certs in data analysis this year; employers are unlikely to care which uni your piece of paper is from.
