Master programs in data science in the UK are a very popular choice among international students. After the USA, the most number of applications for data science masters are in the UK universities. They have top universities with globally ranked data science master programs.

In 2019, a report by the UK's Royal Society showed that the demand for data science and engineers have increased threefold compared to the last five years in the UK. At that time, this report was widely supported by overflowing job vacancies in the data science sector. The numbers have settled now but the recognition data s science professionals get in the UK remains same as high before.

Basically, data science is an area that unlocks the potential of many new technologies. Take artificial intelligence and machine learning for example. Since the UK is a country known for its research and innovation, it is only logical that data scientists are very valuable assets there. One of the highest record data science salaries in the world comes from UK that exceeds £150,000 (around 1.5 crore).

The country is filled with world-class universities that have many specialized data science courses. One thing you need to note is the UK generally offers a one-year master degree unlike a standard two year approach. This allows you to finish your masters early with lower expenses and step in the industry early. If you want the top university suggestions, here are my picks:


  • Imperial College London
  • King’s College London
  • University of Warwick
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Edinburgh
  • University of Bath

The placement average offer for data science professionals in the UK is broad. For example, based on the university degree and your previous qualifications, the salary differs. On estimate, around £40,000 to £60,000 (INR 40-60 lakhs) is the average offer a data science graduate receives in the UK. However, with a few years experience or some added qualifications, it can go up to 80-90 lakhs yearly.

Data science professionals in the UK are paid handsomely. The job market there is very prosperous and well established. Being a part of the European business industry, you can expect rapid career growth with high paychecks. If you want any information regarding data from master programs in the UK, just let me know. It's better to be prepared in advance.
