Frequently Asked Questions
What tier should I choose?
The Mastermind tier provides the best value but if you are serious about taking your career to a new level, consider investing into Expert Mentorship
Is this only for Node? What about front-end tech like React? Angular?
Yes. This service will have (and maybe already has) front-end materials as well as courses on HTML, CSS, Computer Science and more! You can submit your requests to new content.
Is this a real accredited university? Will I get a diploma?
No. This is not a real brick and mortar university like Stanford or Harvard. Node.U is an online school and we don't issue diplomas at this time.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. That's the benefit of online courses—you learn at your OWN pace. You don't have to watch a lecture if it has already familiar to you material. Just skip it or play on 2x. You can rewind/replay other videos which you didn't quite grasp the first time. Try doing it in a live class!

The source code is on GitHub as well as the slides.
Do I get a certificate? A degree? A student visa to the USA?
Right now Node University does not issue certificates but might in the future. There are no degrees and Node University cannot sponsor anyone for a USA visa.
Is this a real accredited university?
No. Node University is a 100% online service focused on cutting-edge software engineering technologies. NodeU is not an accredited university but often time more convenient, affordable and effective than real traditional institutions.
Is this Node School? Are you related to Node Foundation?
This is not Node School. For Node School, visit nodeschool.io. And no, we are not related to Node Foundation, but some of our instructors are members and active participants in the Node/Linux Foundation and the Node community.
