What is a Nanodegree program? What’s the experience like?

A Nanodegree program is a unique online educational offering designed to equip you with the skills you need, to land the job you want, so you can build the life you deserve.

Nanodegree programs feature cutting-edge curriculum built with industry leaders and taught by expert instructors. One-on-one coaching, moderated forums, and project review ensure a personalized experience. Graduates earn an industry-recognized credential and benefit from extensive career support.

Students master Nanodegree program curriculum by building projects that are approved by Udacity coaches and reviewers. Completed projects are showcased for hiring partners in student portfolios.

As soon as you start a Nanodegree program, you join other students who are working towards the same credential. You interact with your fellow students, as well as members of the Udacity Coach team, in an online community to receive support throughout the program. Udacity Coaches also offer Webcasts and one on one appointments.

To make consistent progress in your Nanodegree program, we recommend that students do their best to meet the project deadlines we provide upon enrolling. Please note, there are no penalties for missing a deadline and you are welcome to work on any schedule that best suits your learning needs. When all the projects have met required specifications, you will graduate and earn your Nanodegree program credential.
