How EDeeU Education works
You can learn anything from books borrowed from your local library and free or low-cost online resources. However people who try learning independently frequently find themselves not knowing which resources to choose. It's also hard to stay motivated, and when you get stuck it can be hard to make progress without support. Finally, independent learners need a way to show the world what they've learned.
At EDeeU Education we solve all these problems by allowing you to find a Director of Studies whose job it is to guide you through your chosen field using free and low-cost resources. Their job is to help you choose the right books and online resources, give you feedback on your work and help you when you get stuck. Our Directors of Studies come from both academia and industry and have backgrounds in all subjects and disciplines.
In addition to helping you find your Director of Studies, we also hold regular seminars, office hours and community events. That way you can be part of an academically minded intellectual community, which is an important part of developing your overall education beyond the detailed program you work on with your Director of Studies.

Student at EDeeU Education (Director of Studies: Dr. Alexander Coward)
‘‘It’s absolutely wonderful being a student with EDeeU Education. Their offering fulfills not just one but three unmet needs I’ve had.
“First, the personalized mathematics curriculum fits tightly with where I’m trying to get to. I come from a scientific but non-quantitative background in Biology, so transitioning into being a Machine Learning Engineer at a Silicon Valley tech firm has its challenges. Being able to focus precisely on what I need to learn while also recognizing that I’m not starting from scratch enables me to make the best possible use of my time when I’m studying.
“Second, I’ve been really impressed by the quality of the Directors of Studies at EDeeU Education. The fact that there’s a community of people at EDeeU who have Ph.D. degrees from universities including Oxford, Princeton and MIT, who obviously respect each other, means I have confidence that I’m learning from people who really know what they’re talking about.
“Third, the community aspect of EDeeU is really important. In the working world, it can be difficult to meet people outside your company with similar intellectual interests. EDeeU Education’s weekly seminars and dinners have led to invaluable personal connections.
“Further, the freedom to rotate around other subjects is just fantastic. I expressed an interest in Computational Neuroscience and the quality of the practitioner in the field EDeeU was able to connect me with exceeded all of my expectations!”

How you get Credit for your Learning
There is no better way for you to show what you're capable of than by showing your work to the world directly. For that reason we assign no grades and instead help you build the best possible portfolio of work. This process not only reduces stress and anxiety due to being over-tested and over-graded, but it also gives you the space to think deeply about what you are learning and explore questions that don't have quick or simple answers.
To support our portfolio-based approach, we built edeeu.com, a portfolio-based transcript for you to showcase your work. It's free to use for everyone. For an example of what kind of portfolio you can build with EDeeU Education, see https://portfolio.edeeu.education/kasie.
