Data science is now a global phenomenon that is intriguing to every student. Currently being the #1 profession in the international market, there are a lot of options when it comes to studying data science. Universities in different countries offer many data science courses at different levels. You can do bachelor's, master's, postgrad, diploma and even certificate courses in data science.

Your choice of university majorly depends on what country you prefer and your academic goals. I mean, I can simply list down the 10 best universities worldwide and be done with it. But depending on the country/course, your interest may vary. So what you should do is look for the best universities in the top countries like the USA, UK, Canada and Australia. This will allow you to find many universities with different educational approaches.

I recommend going for these universities -

  • University of California, Berkeley
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Imperial College London
  • King's College London
  • University of Warwick
  • McGill University
  • Queen's University
  • Monash University
  • NSW Sydney

The first 3 universities are in the USA. UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon and Georgia Institute of Technology are one of the finest data science universities in the county. Their data science program is widely known and has excellent postgrad results. For instance, these universities have almost a 100% placement record. It means the entire data science class from these universities find jobs in the starting 3 months after graduation.

Imperial, King's College and the University of Warwick are our best picks if you prefer UK-based universities. But keep in mind that the UK has a very different style of education. The master's programs there are generally one-year long. They start on your specializations and let you finish your degree in one year of time. While this may seem like less time to familiarize yourself with the UK market, it also saves a lot of expenses.

Now, Canada is among those countries that have a really good market in technical sectors. Areas like data science, CS, and IT are most fulfilling there. Two of the best universities in the country are McGill and Queen's University. If you want to apply for a data science program in Canada, these two will be my suggestions. Canadian universities have all kinds of data science courses like undergrad, postgrad, master's, certificates and diplomas.

Monash and UNSW Sydney are your best picks from Australia. Compared to other options, Australia is your most affordable option. The country also has new employment and job sector in data science. Think over these universities and let me know which one you like. If not satisfied, simply ask me. I got a lot of other suggestions.
