I don't know if anyone is able to weigh in on this, but what are the chances of continuing on to a PhD in Comp Sci/ML after this course? Anyone here considering that route?
Nothing prevents you from continuing on a PhD.

Cool, didn't know if there'd be issues getting accepted for a PhD after an online masters, but I suppose this course does have an individual research project which would be good.

You'll have to go through the same standards as an on-campus programme. I would say that doing it online is even more in your favor as you really have to be self-disciplined and independent to go through an online programme. No one will hand-hold you. And this is what a PhD is all about.

Good to know, thanks. Really looking forward to starting this course next year!

Can anyone confirm that the only module to register for is algorithms? It will only allow me to register and pay for that.

Yes, you can register to only one module at a time and pay for that one module.

Thanks for the quick reply. How is that meant to work out then to complete within 2 years? How long is each module? I haven't seen any decent structure document at all.

8 weeks per module.

Here you can find the programme specifications. Click in 2018-2019 and go down for the online programmes.

My course starts June 24th. Should I have received an email or something by now? The last thing I had was setting up my online account to accept my offer.

With these "new" types of course, the best idea is to find out the department offering them, look up where its stands and how it fares, and also look into feedback on related courses offered by the department. This one sounds pretty solid so I'm going to look into applying as well.

I've accepted my offer for the April start. My background is a philosophy degree and a job with small amounts of data analysis.

Has anyone else started the pre-reading for the first module? The java stuff's fine, but I'm struggling with the 'Introduction to Algorithms' by Cormen. Is anyone in a similar position, or else have any pointers for the stuff on algorithms that they've found helpful?

I'm also finding the algorithms book a challenge. Watching some of MIT's 'Introduction to Algorithms' lectures has helped. They're available on YouTube and the MIT OCW website.

I have also enrolled for the April session. If you already have basic programming knowledge, then you can start learning algorithms otherwise it would be difficult.

Thanks both, especially for the MIT pointer! I'll give it a go. Good luck both for the course. I assume at some point there will be a facebook group or something by way of online community, but in the interim it's nice to touch base with others in the same situation!

Thank you so much, do they provide a hard copy of the book or we have to buy them?

Soft copy is available at the University's virtual library, so you don't have to buy. The library search engine shows that a hard copy is also available at the JB Morrell Library
