How to apply
The grit:lab application process consists of three steps, one of which will be held at grit:lab campus on the Åland Islands. Ready to take on a life-changing challenge?
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 are required, only logic and memory. If you pass and are among the top, you’ll be invited to attend the online 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.
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 peer-to-peer learning 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.
