Step 01/03

The online games

The application process starts with two online cognitive games that will require about 2 hours of your undivided attention. Zero coding skills required, only logic and memory. If you pass and are among the top 150, you’ll be invited to attend the digital check-in.

Step 02/03

The check-in

The online check-in is mandatory if you wish to keep your spot in the Piscine. Here, you’ll be able to get a first look at our campus and meet our people. We’ll also present the general program schedule and overall plan for your studies at grit:lab.

Step 03/03

The Piscine

The Piscine is an intensive 4–week introductory period at the grit:lab campus on the Åland Islands. During this phase, you’ll immerse yourself in the learning model and get a feel for the way grit:lab works. The Piscine will be the last step in defining who will enroll.

Who is this for?

No prior coding experience or degrees required, we only ask that you are at least 18, open-minded, motivated to learn to code and willing to completely immerse yourself in the grit:lab mindset of always pushing for better.
