Our Methodology

Less teaching. More learning

Learn by Doing

100% STUDENT-CENTERED PRACTICAL LEARNING

There are many interpretations about what ‘learn by doing’ means. At many coding academies, students code, yes, but only after a structured lecture according to a pre-defined syllabus. Not at Ubiqum. Our programs are 100% student-centred. This means no formal lectures or graded exams. Instead, our programs allow students to progress through the content at their own pace, refactoring their code until it meets the acceptance criteria. It may take longer for some students than others, but our programs are designed to adapt to a variety of skills and abilities.

The one common trait is that all of our students will depart the program with the core skills of a modern developer or analyst. We ensure this not through expert lectures, but through intelligently designed CONTENT. Our programs were designed by experts not only in web development and data sciences, but in learning sciences as well. Ubiqum’s course creators have been pioneering digital education for over 30 years. We know how people learn, and have applied this knowledge to the design of our programs.
