About our Campus

Welcome to

Tirana, Albania

Tirana, the capital of Albania, is an extremely vibrant city – accessible in size, yet with a set of events rivaling larger European capitals.  It was selected the European Youth Capital for 2022 due to the incredible combination of arts, culture, and entertainment – alongside the great weather and amazing geography Albania provides.  Add to this a relatively low cost of living and warm hospitality, and it is not a surprise to see an increase in ‘digital nomads’ choosing to live in Tirana.  People from anywhere are welcome to attend the Holberton School in Tirana.  Including those from neighboring countries of wanting to be part of our soon coming regional expansion.

In fact, we encourage internationals to join us for an amazing 2022. Take a ‘gap year’ and combine the world’s best technology education with a super fun set of programs lined up for the European Youth Capital celebrations.  

Alongside this livability, you’ll be part of a period of high growth for technology in Tirana.  The municipality, in conjunction with the Albanian government, is committed to making Tirana a center of innovation in the region.  Holberton School’s ability to increase the supply of coders fits perfectly in line with a surge in demand for IT resources from the area.  In few places will one find such a combination and ‘will’ and ‘way’ that can really raise the tide for the technology ecosystem of a whole country.  As a Holberton School student in Tirana you’ll be right in the center of this gathering momentum!

Learn software development
‍from the ground up

Our full-time, intensive program will first introduce you to the foundations of computer science, then specialize in what drives you. Our collaborative, project-based environment makes every student real-world ready after graduating.

Flexible tuition option

We succeed when you succeed

We don’t think financial ability should be a barrier. That's why you will be given flexible options to finance your tuition. When Holberton students succeed, everyone succeeds.

Available Tuition Option:

The first cohort of Holberton School Albania will only pay $2,000 per trimester. A fraction of the cost in other markets. And certainly price worthy considering the types of jobs our graduates can expect – and the quick timeline to getting to those jobs.

A 15% discount has been made available for Albanian citizens.

In addition, performance-based scholarships will be available for the best 20% of the students in a given cohort, potentially decreasing the costs for future trimesters.

Our team is working on further increasing accessibility through deferred loan programs with local financial institutions, and lobbying government for the needed legislation to allow other funding mechanisms like Income Share Agreements.

"To me, one of the most valuable things from the program are the peers! That's what makes it so unique. How closely and intensely you work with others, that's one of the best resources. The curriculum is awesome, the problems are great, and the real magic comes from working together on them."

Arthur
Holberton School San Francisco, Cohort 8

"Holberton School not only also recognizes that diversity and collaboration are important, but actively removes barriers to foster diverse coders and uses peer-learning as a critical component of developing both our technical and soft skills."

“Since I started working at Credit Karma, I got promoted 3 times in 2 years. I am now a Software Engineer III. Holberton School's method of teaching is outstanding and everyone at this school is super helpful.”

Bilal
Software Engineer at Credit Karma

“Everyone has a reason for being at Holberton School, and they’re focused on achieving their goal of becoming a software engineer. When I step foot on campus, I know I’m at a place that is only going to make me better—nothing tops my experience here.”

Mohameth
Holberton School New Haven, Cohort 8

I found it very inclusive because you don't have to pay upfront. I will be very happy to give every cent after I graduate so that someone else will have the opportunity to study."
