DAN.IT offers them the opportunity to do so in a deeply immersive metaverse environment, where students, wandering online from class-to-class can bump into each other, engage in spontaneous discussions, learn from and inspire one another in a way that simply isn’t possible with video or teleconferencing technology.

The technology behind this innovative learning solution, vetted by an advisory board including names like Astound, and Wix,  integrates a unique practice-based teaching methodology with personalised mentorship, in-metaverse job fairs, and all-round career coaching that guarantees students get their coveted break into Tech.

DAN.IT’s Metaverse is launching in the UK with an already impressive line-up of courses including Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Programming Essentials, Frontend Development, Full stack Development, UI/UX design and Product Ownership, but is expected to expand into wider disciplines including creative thinking, digital market, cyber security, and soft skills for the changing Tech landscape. 

Ksenia Stolbova, CEO, DAN.IT said:

“Launching today in the UK, we have created an online environment where students from all over the world can come together to learn, regardless of the situation on the ground in the own country. As a Ukrainian that makes me very proud. Just 19 days after the war began, we managed to restart our business, and now, 127 days later, with the majority of our staff still in Ukraine, we’re truly going global. 

Eddie Prilepsky, Founder, DAN.IT added:

“With 35% year on year annual growth, and a 73% employment rate amongst our graduates, it’s clear students and businesses both value DAN.IT as an education provider. The UK is the perfect market to test those growth figures to the limit and we are hungry for even greater growth in the next 5 years.”
