Room 1.20, 35 Berkeley Square, University of Bristol, BS8 1JA

Learn a new approach to data visualisation using Tableau at these free introductory workshops for students and instructors at The University of Bristol. 

Data is everywhere. But it can be hard to make sense of it all. Tableau helps people transform data into actionable insights that make an impact. Easily connect to data stored anywhere, in any format. Quickly perform ad hoc analyses that reveal hidden opportunities. Drag and drop to create interactive dashboards with advanced visual analytics. Then share across your organization and empower team mates to explore their perspective on data. From global enterprises to early-stage start-ups and small businesses, people everywhere use Tableau’s analytics platform to see and understand their data. 

By the end of your workshop, you can expect to: 

  • Understand the importance of data literacy 
  • Know how to create real-life insights with Tableau 

  • Be able to build basic visualisations (bar charts, scatter plots and maps) 

  • Create and publish your own interactive dashboard.

Can I get Tableau for free? 

Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep are free for students and instructors. Take a look at everything you need to know about Tableau's Academic Programs.
