Udacity offers self-paced online courses focusing mainly on vocational technology courses for professionals, teaching skills that industry employers are looking for. Courses, which can be taken individually or as part of a learning track or "Nanodegree", are developed in-house with input from education and industry experts, and are delivered via short videos, exercises, quizzes, hands-on projects and mentoring.
All Udacity courses give you free access to course materials, but students can enroll in Nanodegree programs which range in price from $399 to $2,400 depending on the program. Students enroll in a specific course offering (e.g. Intro to Programming) and will be prompted to view the online course as well as complete a series of projects and support courses designed to help them develop job-relevant skills and build a portfolio to show prospective employers. Services may include classroom mentorship, moderated forums, and project reviews. Additional or different services may be offered in certain Nanodegree Programs.
The length and time commitment for completing the Nanodegree programs varies depending on the requirements for the specific program. Some programs will require longer terms than others but you must complete the program within the terms in order to graduate and receive the Nanodegree program credential. Additionally, certain programs may require more of a time commitment, depending on topic complexity and your skill level. After successfully completing a Nanodegree program, provided you have complied with all the policies, and upon providing identity verification documentation, you will receive a credential of completion for the applicable Nanodegree program.
Career Services are available for purchase to all students and graduates of any career-ready Nanodegree program that includes access to the Career Portal.
