What is Creative Data Academy?

Every year, Creative Data Academy invites 30 students to join us for a free 3-day workshop to explore graduate career paths in data, within the marketing and advertising industry. This area of work has become one of the fastest growing sectors for employment and skills in maths, social sciences, human behaviour, insight, technology and analysis are in high demand.

This year we're  changing things up! You'll still be able to apply for the 3-day workshops which will be held in London, Birmingham and Edinburgh, but we've also added in 1-day workshops which will be held at various locations across the UK. 

Dates and timings are TBC, but for now register your interest here to make sure you don't miss out.
