We are extremely keen to ensure that our programmes are a good preparation for a future career and work closely with a number of employers on the design and delivery. IMS Health are one of the large data science companies in healthcare based in this part of London and we have developed a strong partnership with them. As part of this we operate a scheme that allows students on the MSc programme who wish to gain some experience in industry to complete their research dissertation as paid interns at IMS Health, who provide supervision and also furnish data. UCL provides academic support and examines the dissertation, which counts towards their qualification. This scheme is highly attractive for those students who are interested in a career as research data analysts and is good evidence of the high regard in which employers hold the qualification
