I would recommend doing the seminar to prepare for their thesis. Besides the academic writing practice and feedback, completing all the R courses on Datacamp really gives you solid R skills which can then be used for data analysis in your thesis or as an extra skill
I highly recommend the course to anyone since it will improve writing skills as well as coding.
This seminar requires a lot of patience and feels pretty long, but it's all worth it in the end. Prepare to dedicate a lot of time, especially at the beginning. The R-script assignments might seem hard and demand for great efforts, but it feels really good when you finally solve them. Following all the guidelines and announcements is crucial.
As soon as you start taking DataCamp courses (better before the first assignment), you will realize how easy the assignments start to seem. Do not start with the assignment on the last day, start earlier.
If you want to take this course you need a lot of patience and perseverance, plan a lot of time for this course, don't start too late to avoid stress.
I would recommend to take this course if you are interested in improving your skills in data analysis and in programming with R. This course is very interesting, but also quite intensive, so make sure to have enough time in both semester blocks to keep up with the workload.
