Who Are We?

The Software University (SoftUni) is founded in 2013 with the idea to be a modern and innovative technology learning center. Our team of experts aims to provide practical, quality, and accessible education in digital and information technologies, creating real professionals and future leaders.

SoftUni works directly with IT companies to offer up-to-date learning content and skills that employers are looking for most.

We believe students must acquire real practical skills that they will need to get hired or advance in their.

Our learning model combines a flexible schedule with learning in a group with assistance from the technical mentors. The interactive learning platform ensures and eases the learning experience by automated grading for coding tasks, hints and live assistance. Our students can watch video lessons, read, write and execute code directly in the browser.

Global Learning Community

At SoftUni we believe in the power of community. Group learning, talking with people who are learning the same lessons, working on projects and homework together have been proven to improve our students’ achievements.
SoftUni learners, along with their instructors and mentors, communicate constantly and help each other with coding issues, project assignments, practical exercises and homework.

Watch your video lessons during the week and practice together with your instructors in the weekends.
 
Our dedicated mentors are always available to help you with any technical issue, task, project or challenge during your learning journey. Students learn in groups, so they help each other.

Personal Mentorship

As professionals in education, we know that proper communication with students motivates them to enhance their abilities. Therefore, our team must communicate with students in an effective manner. That is a two-way process. On the one hand, it encourages them to work hard and to learn faster. On the other hand, it helps us better understand their needs and receive regular feedback to improve our programs.
 
We use Slack to provide easy communication between our students and us. Our students can find answers to all their questions by asking in a group chat, connect with a mentor, or contact account support. Our learning support team aims to help them solve the challenges that they encounter as fast as possible.
