Ecole 42's students explain how the program works and why they love it

A new kind of education

Hive offers a 3-year higher-education level program based on collaborative project-based learning. It is unique and designed for creative and motivated individuals who have problem-solving skills and an open-mind.

Peer-to-peer learning

Our model removes the teacher in favor of collaborative learning between students.

Through teamwork, students have to seek and share knowledge, solve real-world problems and reach goals – together. Your team’s projects are subject to peer review. You get prepared for working life, where teamwork and communication skills are as important as coding.

Project-based learning

Coding is like any other craft: you learn by doing.

At Hive, instead of learning a lot of theory that might never be applied in real life, you get increasingly difficult programming challenges to solve in teams. You will learn to look for the theory and tools you need. At Hive, you learn how to learn.

Open 24/7

The school is always open and we encourage you to take full advantage of it.

We recognize individuals may experience productivity spikes at different times of the day or have their schedules affected by life situations. Hive provides you with a safe and cozy environment and the best possible conditions to work and learn together, at any time of the day.

Flexible timeframe

Hive does not offer schedules or timetables.

Students get milestones and recommended deadlines, but it’s up to you if you use more or less time than advised. The school is designed to last three years, though some will progress faster, some slower. It’s results that matter. No two paths are the same.

Gamified experience

Our curriculum progression is inspired by game mechanics that have proved to make the experience more fun and engaging.

You complete projects to get experience points, level up and unlock new branches, specializations, achievements and quests.

Get ready for work

Gain extraordinary coding skills and the ability to create in a team.

Hive will prepare you to meet the needs of both leading tech companies and start-ups across industries. You might even get inspired to start your own company. 30% of students from our partner school Ecole 42 have done just that.
