"Creative Data Academy has given me a huge insight into the data industry and has provided several great opportunities to work on real case studies. I have also found that coming to the end of my degree I was unsure as to which career path to follow, but taking part in the CDA has allowed me to experience different job roles within the data industry and I now know exactly which career path I want to take!"
