Evaluation of new Masters conversion courses in data science and artificial intelligence
The Office for Students has appointed CRAC to evaluate a new programme through which it is funding HE institutions to develop innovative new postgraduate conversion courses in artificial intelligence and data science. This follows a prior CRAC evaluation of a pilot scheme, which was shown to be effective in data science in particular. This new scheme includes scholarship funding specifically targeted to support those from a range of groups who have previously been under-represented in these subject areas.
CRAC is monitoring participation in the scheme by students and implementing a variety of analysis and additional research in order to provide an evaluation of the overall programme. We are also supporting the funded institutions as they develop and launch these courses.
We are currently running a survey of students participating on these courses. To find out how we will use the information you provide in this survey, please consult our data privacy notice here.
