What is the tuition cost?

The tuition is success-based. You will pay €0 until you graduate and find a job earning more than €2,500/month. Only then, you will pay 10% of your income until you have fully paid the tuition cost of €12,500.

The total amount you will pay for your tuition will be €0-12,500, depending on your income.

What are the terms for Success-Based tuition?

We’ll cover your tuition until you get hired. This means that you'll pay your tuition only after you find a job making more than €30K a year (i.e., €2,500 a month). Only then, you will pay 10% of your income each month, until you have fully paid the tuition cost of €12,500.

If you decide to leave the program within the second month, your discounted tuition cost will be 25% of the full tuition of €12,500, and if you leave during the third month, you will pay 50% of the full tuition.

Even if you decide to drop out of the program, you will still be eligible to pay your tuition in the success-based model, under the same conditions and based on your income.

Does it make sense to join if I'm already a Computer Science student or graduate?

Yes. Many of our students are computer science graduates or graduates of similar degree subjects. The Masterschool program, in contrast to traditional degree programs, focuses on what you actually need to get a job in tech and succeed in it.

Masterschool bridges the gap between education and the job market. Through our Masters who are industry experts in their field, and our career accelerator program that includes partnerships with leading companies and employers, we make sure you are equipped with exactly what the market needs.

In which language is the program taught?

The program is taught and delivered in English. This is because English is a key requirement to succeed as a data analyst. English is also needed for our students to be able to study independently.

Is the program open for people outside of Germany?

Yes, we're welcoming applications of candidates living outside of Germany.

I already work full-time but want to switch careers. Can I join the program?

Yes. Some of our graduates succeeded in completing the program while working full-time. The program is 100% online and all material is recorded so the schedule is flexible. However, the program requires a minimum of 25 hours per week, so hard work and dedication are required if you intend to enroll in the program while working full-time.

Do I need to be 18 to join the program?

No, we welcome applications from candidates who may be below the age of 18, but each application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

What if I don't immediately want to start working after the program?

The program is designed for people who want to start looking for a job immediately after they graduate. However, candidates and students who may need more time after graduation before they start looking for a job can reach out to our team. We will consider your situation and try to help.
