Holberton's latest updates about Coronavirus




In light of the extraordinary events related to COVID-19, we wish to communicate as transparently as possible regarding the measures that we have been, and will be, implementing to protect our students and staff and do our part to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Therefore, we have decided to make adaptations to our programs to optimize remote learning and facilitate remote collaboration across our community.

You will find on this page detailed information regarding the different measures that we have implemented at our campuses in the US, and around the world. We will be updating it as the situation evolves. Please do not hesitate to also reach out directly here should you have more specific questions.

Montevideo Campus - Uruguay / Holberton Uruguay en contexto COVID-19

  • In light of the extraordinary events related to COVID-19, the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Therefore, we have decided to have our first cohort, in September 2020, remotely if the shelter in place is maintained, or on-site if the crisis has passed. Holberton's project and peer based approach to education is a proven methodology, and has allowed us to adapt to temporally remote learning rather quickly while still facilitating collaboration, compared to more traditional educational methods.
  • A la luz de la crisis sanitaria que vive el país, la salud de nuestros alumnos y nuestro personal es prioritaria. Por eso decidimos lanzar nuestra primer cohorte en septiembre 2020, en modo remoto si la situación sanitaria se mantiene, en modo presencial si la crisis sanitaria se solucionó. La propuesta de Holberton basada en gestión de proyectos es una metodología de aprendizaje probada y alternativa al método educativo tradicional, gracias a ello, con pocas adaptaciones al programa original, hemos logrado optimizar el aprendizaje remoto y facilitar la colaboración remota en toda nuestra comunidad.
