LEARNING

We’ve designed our @uni kickstarter courses around your schedule so it is easy to attend (or tune in). Our classes are held in the evening for one night (usually a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday ) and run for 8-weeks. We work with a range of amazing companies to make this opportunity FREE for university students. 

If your university is not hosting any courses, never fear we also run general kickstarters for students or recent grads.

You can get in touch with us about setting up a course at your university too. Just fill in our form, sending us the details for your key contact/s from within the university and we will do the rest.
