The Masterly learning experience is built on 3 key learning pillars. We believe these are the key to an effective and engaging online course for our students.

1. Active learning: We enable active learning through our live classes using Zoom. They are workshop based and highly interactive.

2. Peer to peer learning: Real learning happens through discussion and collaboration with your peers. All Masterly students are organised into small groups of 5 to move through the course together with high levels of collaboration.

3. Project-based learning: Each Masterly course has projects to ensure you put what you learn into practice allowing you to create a personal portfolio. These projects are customisable to your company, allowing you to transfer over the value of the project to your role or company.

Not here there’s not. There’s no previous required experience to take this course. All we ask is that you bring a curious and open mind.

You’re not expected to come to an overcrowded, windowless classroom and sit in those tiny, uncomfortable chairs. All Masterly courses, including this one, are delivered using the latest online, mobile friendly tech. You can choose to engage with this course from a beach in Sydney or an office in San Fransisco, the choice really is yours.

The age old question, eh… When it comes to learning, we believe practical and transferrable skills are more important than a certificate you can hang on a wall. That’s why our courses are project based, giving you an actionable portfolio of work for you to take with you.

Having said that, we know some of you really like certificates (and still do some old skool employers), so we’ve got you covered. You’ll receive an official Masterly digital certificate of completion and can stick this badboy on your resume, LinkedIn or Twitter profile. Wherever you think it will add the most value.

If you’re a curious learner then we expect you have even more questions. To that, we say: Bring it on! Send us an email and we’ll get back to you.


We are here to help at all times throughout the course. Each masterly course has “coaches” that are dedicated to your success in the course.
