Registration for the 2019 MSc in Data Analytics for Government (MDataGov) Symposium is now open.

The annual Symposium is an opportunity for former, current and prospective MDataGov students to showcase data science research and projects conducted within government, and to network. The Symposium is organised by students and supported by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Data Science Campus.

Delegates will be able to network with representatives from the three MDataGov providers (University of Southampton, University College London and Oxford Brookes University) and with a team from the ONS Data Science Campus.

Date and venue

27 March 2019 at the Federation House, Manchester, M4 4BF.


Masters students will present on how they have applied their new-found skills to data science challenges within government. MDataGov students engage in a wide variety of data science and analytics projects utilising a variety of tools, including distributed computing platforms, natural language processing, machine learning and advanced statistical modelling. Their presentations will highlight the value that these skills bring in working for the public good.

The Symposium will also host a discussion session with senior members of academia, industry and government on challenges and next steps on growing data science skills across government.
