Victor Chinyemba has recently graduated from our Data Analytics MSc. Here he tells us more about the course, the staff and peer support and why studying Data Analytics gives you a competitive advantage across different industries.
If you have considered training to teach after graduating in a STEM subject this year, this post is for you…
Tax-free bursaries and prestigious scholarships of up to £30,000 are available while you train as a teacher. The department of Education (DfE) website has additional support available to help you get started…
- Read these five simple steps to get into teaching
- Register to attend the next DfE online event on 18 July; which provides specific advice for new STEM graduates like you.

Good teachers are always in demand but STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects at secondary school are particular priorities and attract additional support and higher levels of funding.
The teaching profession is a great way to make your degree, skills and knowledge really count. At the moment, tax-free bursaries and scholarships worth up to £30,000 are being offered to top graduates who choose to train as teachers.
Our teaching courses at Brighton are perfect if you have graduated with an honors degree or equivalent, in a subject relevant to the specialism. Or if you think you may need additional support we also offer subject knowledge enhancement routes (SKE) which you can do ahead of the teaching course.
Specialising in a STEM subject at postgraduate level means that you will be able to take a role in the leadership and development of this subject area throughout your career.
A scientist from our school left her lab to stand on a soapbox to explain nuclear physics to members of the public and to help eliminate gender inequality in science.
Chantal Nobs, a PhD student at the University of Brighton, was one of 12 women selected to participate in the Soapbox Science London event on London’s Southbank.
Her session ‘Nuclear physics: Exploring the centre of the atom and harnessing its potential’ involved discussing her work and her experiences as a female scientist.
Chantal said she was impressed with the reaction from members of the public. One said: “Now, not only do I know what it means, but I know that women can do it.”
The key aim was to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile and challenging the public’s view of women in science. In addition to sharing their research with the general public, all 12 women became role-models for future generations.
Chantal said: “Although I was incredibly nervous before stepping onto my soapbox I thoroughly enjoyed the hour-long session. As soon as I had introduced myself, out of no-where, a full crowd had formed around me. A complete mixture of young and old, male and female, some who knew all about nuclear physics, and some who had never heard of a nucleus.
“The best part of the event for me was the variety of questions asked, everything from ‘how did you get into nuclear physics’ to ‘how do we know whether we have created a nucleus if we cannot see it’.”

Here what Jason Bailey has to say about studying Data Analytics MSc
The Data Anayltics MSc at Brighton is challenging, fascinating and eye-opening.
As a part-time student in employment, I am finding the course flexible enough to choose my modules each semester to suit my work.
The teaching staff are really helpful. I’ve learnt a lot of new statistical methods, theory and application using different software tools such as R and SPSS Data Modeller. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to gain understanding of both statistics and data mining.
The course is perfect for anyone wanting a career in data science, business analytics or data mining.
