University of York, Heslington, York YO10 5DD How to find us


The course begins with an introduction to the Python language covering the main data types and the Python statements that can be used to manipulate them. From there, you will progress to reading and writing files and displaying graphs and charts. The course is geared towards data analysis, but there will be time in the last session to explore how more specific problems (such as sequence analysis, manipulation of geospatial data, image handling or web programming) can be tackled in Python.

This course is recommended for anyone who has to do any kind of scientific data analysis.

Upon completion of the course, you will receive a course booklet and CPD certificate.


This is a two day course aimed at getting those without previous programming experience to have enough confidence to start writing small scripts for doing routine data analysis tasks.
