Open days are a great way to help you make your decision about DBS and learn more about the Master of Science (MSc) in Data Analytics. As well as experiencing our outstanding facilities, you'll have the opportunity to receive personalised advice from academics from your subject area, meet current postgraduate students and also have your questions answered on general subjects such as entry requirements, student support and the admissions process.
As this is an extremely specialised area of study advanced entry to any stage of the programme is not permitted.
Eligible applicants must hold a related science/technology/computing/business/finance degree (level 8, 2.2 or higher) granted by an institution recognised in the country where it operates. Advice on equivalence of overseas awards will be obtained from the NARIC Ireland and/or NARIC UK which provides advice on the academic recognition of a foreign qualification by comparing it, where possible, to a major award at a certain level on the Irish National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
Further Requirements are as follows:
1. A completed application form
2. Primary source verified degrees and transcripts
3. Copies of any other supporting material, such as results of exams, honours, awards, etc.
4. Evidence of proficiency in English Language, in cases where the language of instruction during the undergraduate studies was not English.
5. If English is not the applicant’s first language, and s/he has not undertaken a previous degree taught in English, and has no mechanism of demonstrating their level of English, he or she must sit and obtain greater or equal to B2+ in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages or an equivalent test and scores as approved by DBS.
6. Test certificates should be dated within the last two years to be considered valid.
7. Students must have access to a suitable computer and broadband access to the internet.
In the unlikely event that the programme is oversubscribed by qualified applicants at any time, places will be given to those who applied first.
Students with Disabilities
Dublin Business School welcomes students with disabilities onto the MSc in Data Analytics, but asks that they consider their future career in the area relative to the requirements of working in the area. The College employs a Disabilities Coordinator based in the Student Services Department and appropriate supports in relation to teaching and assessment are put in place. The Library also offers a wide range of supports to learners with disabilities.
