The Bachelor of Applied Data Analytics is a three year full-time (or equivalent part-time) inter-disciplinary degree that is designed to address a global shortage of graduates with skills in data analytics as applied to high-quality, data-informed decision-making. It is designed to develop inter-disciplinary knowledge across the three base disciplines of computing, statistics and social science.  You will receive exposure to best practice in data analytics as well as an opportunity to acquire knowledge in a discipline that relies on data analytics, or deepen knowledge in one of computation, statistics, or social science.

Career Options

Graduates from ANU have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide.

The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the skills and knowledge to:

  1. Select, adapt, apply, and communicate advanced data analytics methods and techniques;
  2. Apply data analytics to decision making about policy, business and service delivery;
  3. Examine current issues in data analytics using leading-edge research and practices in the field;
  4. Demonstrate strong cognitive, technical, and communication skills to work independently and collaboratively to collect, process, interpret and communicate the outcomes of data analytics problems; and
  5. Communicate complex data analytics outcomes to diverse audiences.

Admission Requirements

Admission to all programs is on a competitive basis. Admission to undergraduate degrees is based on meeting the ATAR requirement or an equivalent rank derived from the following qualifications:

• An Australian year 12 qualification or international equivalent; OR
• A completed Associate Diploma, Associate Degree, AQF Diploma, Diploma, AQF Advanced Diploma, Graduate Certificate or international equivalent; OR
• At least one standard full-time year (1.0 FTE) in a single program of degree level study at an Australian higher education institution or international equivalent; OR
• An approved tertiary preparation course unless subsequent study is undertaken.
