UNIT Factory is the only private educational institution in Ukraine, which operates according to the standards of the French innovative school 42. Learning is free on condition that students work in Ukraine for three years after graduation.
IT factory works 24/7. Here they learn to code, to work in a team and to find innovative solutions. The training program is based on gamification, i.e. the approaches, typical for computer games. Students will also be able to develop skills of self-education and continuous professional development.
According to school 42 standards, young people between 18 and 30 who have passed the entrance test could become its students. Their academic achievements (diplomas, Standardized External Testing, school grades) do not matter. During their studies, the students can be recruited for various internships at UNIT.City resident companies. After graduation, they get a chance to work in leading IT-enterprises.
