Real World Data Science

A great way to start your
data science journey
and it's absolutely FREE

INSOFE’s Real-World Data Science course is designed to introduce the field of data science to excited students and working professionals.
It is live, online, free and explores all crucial parts of data science (coding, mathematics and business) adequately.

Who is it aimed at?

Many students are scared of studying data science wrongly, assuming that all data scientists should be excellent mathematicians and programmers.

This course introduces the field very gently to all. Yes, we teach programming, we teach business aspects and we teach how data science becomes a foundation for many fields.

This course is an excellent introduction to three types of students and working professionals who want to become data scientists.


Those who love computer science and coding, learn, how extremely powerful applications are built.


Those who love business and consulting, learn, how data science can become a differentiator for any business going the digital path.


Those who love their core engineering, learn, how with data science knowledge they can build much better solutions.

With the introduction you get in this program, you can pursue data science such that it aligns with your field of interest.

  • Classes are conducted live & online on every Tuesday starting from 14th July from 7 PM to 8 PM. Recorded lectures will be made available in 48 hours in the portal.
  • Every class is associated with an online quiz of 5 questions.
  • There will be 20 classes in total and we repeat them circularly. So, after the 20th class, the first class starts.
  • We make the modules as independent as possible. So, students can join at several points and then complete 20 lectures from there. Typically, a student can start with any odd-numbered session (please see below)
  • In addition, we conduct interviews with successful data scientists working in the industry and learn from their experiences.

Admission and Course Completion

  • There will be a diagnostic test in quantitative and verbal skills. We have 10 questions. Only those who score more than or equal to 5 points are eligible for joining the course.
  • Every class has an associated quiz. As these are online, students can take whenever they are ready. So, students must take 20 quizzes (100 questions). Students who score 35% or more and who attend 5 or more data scientist interviews are eligible for a digital INSOFE badge.
  • Students can display these badges in their social media profile and attract employers.


Those who get 35-50%


Those who score between 50-70%


Those who score more than 70%
