Explore Data Science Academy offers 500 free data science internships for 2020

Are you young, smart, ambitious and hard-working and looking for a bite at the ‘sexiest’ career choice of the 21st century? Africa’s leading data science academy Explore Data Science Academy(EDSA) has the offer of a lifetime for 500 of South Africa’s brightest minds.

Applications open today for its industry leading 12-month Seta Accredited Data Science Programme in 2020.

Applicants should be between 18 and 35 years of age.

No prior degree is required, but a quantitative background is useful.

Past interns have had varying skills including mathematics, marketing, media, medical and legal backgrounds.

To qualify for the fully sponsored one-year programme (including tuition and a stipend), applicants must successfully complete an online application, which probes candidates’ analytical and problem solving capabilities, as well as attend a data science boot camp and a round of interviews with the team at EDSA.

Launched just two years ago in Cape Town with 100 interns at its first intake, EDSA has an enviable track record of success and now has a second campus in Braamfontein Gauteng, as well as a new data analytics course. Plans are afoot for a third campus to open in Durban in 2020.

“We are the first African institution to offer a focused, comprehensive and free year-long accredited skills data science programme that builds the relevant digital skills within our youth, so that they can thrive in the new economy,” explains EDSA cofounder Shaun Dippnall.


“We know that we have a world-class facility,” states Dippnall, “95 percent of our 2019 programme graduates have been employed at a median starting salary of R360 000 a year!”

According to Dippnall, the five-fold increase in student numbers in just two years underscores the burgeoning demand for data science and analytics in both the local and global digital economy – a demand that currently far exceeds supply.

“Recognising the value of qualified data science skills, many of South Africa’s leading corporate companies looking to digitise their operations and leverage big data, have come on board to sponsor our training programmes,” Dippnall said. Founding sponsor BCX has invested R50-million over three years.

The Explore Data Science Academy is the brainchild of founders Shaun Dippnall, Dave Strugnell and Aidan Helmbold, all highly qualified data scientists with actuarial qualifications and experience in lecturing, research and consulting.

“We offer students a globally competitive faculty and a course which incorporates cutting edge training material, leveraging the latest in data science and artificial intelligence research. In the classroom and during the work-experience phase of the programme, we focus on experiential learning, in other words, solving real-world problems. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime,” concludes Dippnall.
