Benefit from

one-to-one personalized support.

Learners in our courses and programs can benefit from weekly, personal one-to-one video chats with one of our instructors, so they can achieve their learning goals. But that’s not all: our instructors personally answer all your questions, grade your code, and provide you with feedback tailored to your needs. With the EPFL Extension School, there are no bots, no auto-responders, no peer-review and no hurdles for you to get expert feedback that helps you advance.

Meet your instructors.

Learn 100% online,

at your own pace.

All of our courses and programs are taught 100% online, without any fixed schedule, so you can balance the pace of your learning with your other personal and professional commitments.
