If you consider all the available options, I would say the Udacity data science course is pretty good. I mean out of all other online option, this is one of the favorites among students. Plus, the competitors of Udacity are not even close to their data science course when it comes to quality and ratings.

The data science by Udacity is basically a nanodegree and definitely worth it if you are looking for the same. The content in this program is up to date and combined with real-world problems. These problems are very much connected with the industry as they are created by the leaders in the industry, so you get good knowledge. However, the one thing I like the most about it is one-to-one mentorship. It definitely helps.

Now, the thing that I want you to focus on is; how much is it worth it? Like I said, it is a very good option if you are looking for the same. If you are thinking that you can start a career in data science with this degree then you need to reconsider. This nanodegree is generally for those that are switching careers to data science and already pack some relevant skills and qualifications. Udacity data science is not a standard masters degree level course.

I would personally recommend going for a full-time masters program from abroad. There are hundreds of options there for you to choose. Like you can do it from the USA, UK or Canada. On the other hand, if your budget is on a lower end, Australia and some European countries. The universities there are very recognized and thot degree packs a certain value. If you are looking for a solid qualification that can launch you in data science, this will be the right path.

Don’t take me wrong, Udacity data science is more than better. In fact it has higher ratings than Coursera (with a 9.8 impressive ratings). But when it comes to the qualification level, there is only so much an online course can do. Whether it is from Udacity or some other premium service. Besides, it’s not like you are getting these online programs for free. Students only receive one-month free trials and then start paying with subscriptions.

What I’m trying to say is if you are already investing your money and most importantly time, then do it right. When you apply for a job in data science, the organization will look for a full-time degree first then any other qualification. Ask any expert, they’ll say the same thing. Let me know if you want some specific information to make things clearer.
