After successfully launching a Holberton School Melbourne campus in January 2022, we are thrilled to announce the opening of Holberton School Australia’s second campus in Sydney. This new campus will be the 33rd Holberton School campus around the world!
Opening in September 2022, the Sydney campus will contribute to the economic development of the region by helping to fill the local digital skill gap. According to the Tech Council of Australia, Australia needs 286,000 more employees in the tech sector by 2025. If this ambitious target is to be achieved, re-skilling and up-skilling must become a priority.
