Not currently. We may offer this in the future. All applicants need to have authorisation to work in the U.K.

What can I do to have the best chance at getting a place?

We’re asking for people to submit work built in Tableau Public. Review the Tableau Public Gallery and check out the featured authors to see the quality of work published by other authors and try to emulate their work. Check out The Data School blog and see what previous cohorts have created to get a sense for the quality we are looking for.

Are there details about what I’ll learn?

The focus of The Data School is to make the students brilliant analysts. To do this, we need to cover a wide variety of hard and soft skills. A great amount of time will be spent learning Tableau Desktop, Tableau Server and Alteryx. You’ll also spend a lot of time learning how to become a good presenter, how to tell stories, how to work with clients, etc. At the end of four months, you’ll be an incredibly well-rounded analyst.
