European Leadership University


Join a thriving community of talent and visionary companies. Together we will pioneer work-based learning for the digital economy.

Our approach and methodology is rooted in a core activity - the full-stack education programme. We offer interactive and experiential learning experiences.

We do not use a traditional classroom approach. No exams, no lectures, no teachers. Instead, we focus on getting you the domain (technical) and leadership skills that are on demand in the job market, help you build a portfolio through practical assignments and projects, and connect you with facilitators and mentors with direct experience in the field.

Here's how we are innovating the learning experience:

Is the ELU Learning Experience Right for You?

Will I have to go to a campus?

No, our online platform and part-time workshops/action learning groups/mentoring lets you work while you study.

One of the things I really want in my education is someone who knows their stuff and will work with me.

ELU is about social learning where you will have the opportunity to join a community of leaners, mentors, and facilitators, through workshops, mentoring and action learning groups.

I'm not an academic - I'm more hands-on. Is this school right for me?

Our emphasis on project-based learning makes it easy and accessible for people whose strength is in practical learning.
