WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT STUDYING AT HARBOUR.SPACE?
Harbour.Space is the University of the Future: the bridge between talented individuals worldwide and a leading role in the industries of tomorrow.
Studying at Harbour.Space is a very different experience from studying at traditional universities. Our objective is for you to graduate with all the tools you need to meet and exceed the demands of the professional workforce.
Here are some features that make us special:
Practising Professionals as Instructors: The Harbour.Space faculty is composed entirely of leading practising professionals from the private sector.
Modular Academic Structure: Programs at Harbour.Space run for an entire calendar year, divided into 15 “sprint-like” 3-week modules, instead of monthly semesters.
Personalized Study Plans: You are given the freedom to design your own study plan, and select up to 5 courses from any discipline within the Harbour.Space curriculum, considering you fulfil the prerequisites.
Experiential Learning: In the place of written exams, you work on group and individual projects, which you present at the end of the course. For that reason, you have class for 3 hours a day.
Capstone Projects: A Capstone is a year-long project where you apply your learnings and experiences from each course to either launch a Startup, develop a Design Portfolio, write a Thesis or produce a Case Study based on real work experience during your time of study.
