Programme Structure

Our goal is to reshape education in order to lay the foundation for a better future. Here is how we do it at our University.


The number of hours students will spend in class every day. The rest of the time is theirs to study, work on projects, or interact with their peers and teachers. Students have the freedom and flexibility to adapt their time to their needs.


The lifespan of each Module or class. Students will take one class at a time for three weeks, allowing them to focus intensively on the subject matter. This allows for every student to get the most out of every class.


The amount of contact hours students get with their teachers each module. Our teachers make commitments to come and teach a class for three weeks and make themselves fully available to help their students understand classwork, work through projects, or help students with their Capstone Projects for graduation.

Academic requirements


  • CV

  • Application Fee Receipt

  • Math and Computer Science Test

  • Diploma and transcript of highest education level


  • Recommendation Letters

English requirements:

100% of classes are in English, and we require all students to have high English proficiency levels. You’ll need to read academic material, interpret, discuss and present in fluent, well-articulated English. We assess your language proficiency during your admissions interview. 

If we’re in doubt, you may need to complete the proficiency test. If you have a proficiency certificate from either TOEFL, IELTS, Pearson’s PTE, Cambridge, or SATs, this will strengthen your application and you’re welcome to upload it.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Our admission process is a holistic review of each student’s preparedness level for higher studies and potential for a successful career.
  • While we are highly selective we do not base the decision on the review of the grades and transcripts alone. We believe that grades and standardised test results are sometimes not fully indicative of a student’s ability to work on a project and to innovate. We consider the overall certificates, transcript, motivation and recommendation letters as well as awards, achievements and extracurricular activities. One of the crucial parts of the student’s application is the project proposal.
  • All our technical degree programmes (Computer Science, Data Science and Cyber Security) require a strong foundational knowledge of mathematics. If your Maths level is not sufficient, you may first join an intensive, one year preparatory Math as a Second Language (MSL) course.
