    Overview
    Udacity offer cutting-edge online courses built in partnership with leading companies like Google, AT&T, and Facebook on everything from mastering web design to tech entrepreneurship. All courses are developed with input from leading education and industry experts. The content is cutting-edge and teaches the most relevant skills needed to advance your career, whether you want to be in tech, or just leverage your new-found tech skills. These industry partnerships ensure that students are mastering the skills top employers are seeking in their candidates.

    Udacity's flagship is the Nanodegree, a specialization program designed to equip you with cutting-edge in-demand skills. Students master Nanodegree program curriculum by building projects that are approved by Udacity coaches and reviewers. Completed projects are showcased in student portfolios and are useful to reference during your job search. Nanodegree program enrollees also benefit from project review, moderated peer forums, career support, and an awarded credential.

    Udacity courses are highly interactive with activities such as quizzes and exercises interspersed between short videos and interviews with instructors and industry experts. The courses also include a project that you can add to your portfolio.

    The cost of a Nanodegree program varies program to program and can be found on a program's overview page. Prices range from $399 to $2,400 depending on the program and most programs take between 6-12 months to complete.

    Some of the materials for the individual courses—and the associated projects that make up the Nanodegree program curricula—are accessible for free. You can find any free courses in the syllabus section of the relevant Nanodegree program overview page or by browsing the course catalogue. However, to earn a Nanodegree credential, and enjoy the exclusive benefits (including project review, forums, and career support) you will need to be enrolled in the paid program.
