Clash of Clans’ creators are bringing a tuition-free coding school to Finland

Hive will be a school without teachers or classes

In partnership with KuudesClash of Clans‘ developer Supercell is funding Hive, a programming school in Finland to tackle the skills gap in the Finnish tech industry. Aimed at developing a specialized workforce, the school will be established in Helsinki in 2019 and especially focused on attracting more diversity to the tech industry.

For its first five years, all the costs are on Supercell, which is investing 8 to 10 million euros, according to Chief Executive Ilkka Paananen, as reported by Reuters. That means no tuition fees for students interested in attending Hive.

Based on the French school École 42, Hive will not follow the traditional paradigm of schooling with teachers and classes. Instead, in a 3-year program, students will gather in teams to develop their own learning path autonomously as they go about finding solutions for problems in the real world.

If you’re interested in joining Hive, check their Twitter account or their website for more information on how to apply.
