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. We provide all students with a personal Director of Studies, whose job it is to guide you through your chosen field using free and low-cost resources. Our Directors of Studies come from both academia and industry and have backgrounds in all subjects and disciplines. 

If you would like to become a Director of Studies, please reach out to us here.



An Undergraduate Curriculum in Mathematics

by Dr. Alexander Coward, Director of Studies in Mathematics


This curriculum is intended for students who want to learn mathematics to the standard of someone graduating as a math major from a top university. 

Topics range from classical geometry dating back to Ancient Greece, through pioneering work done in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, to modern mathematics that forms the foundations of current research. 

The course of study balances pure mathematical topics like Galois Theory and Geometry with elements of applied mathematics like Fluid Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics. It also covers important topics in mathematical physics such as Special Relativity and Quantum Theory, as well as topics in theoretical computer science and the mathematical foundations of Machine Learning and Blockchain.

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, 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 Your EDeeU portfolio is always free and always under your 100% control.

WhaT Students are saying

"A huge boost to my learning."

"The one-on-one sessions are fantastic."

"It never occurred to me previously that I'd have the opportunity to have personal help from someone with this level of expertise."

How to apply

We operate a rolling admission policy, with new students starting immediately upon admission.

Decisions about admission are at the discretion of your proposed Director of Studies, who will review your application and interview you before reaching a decision. Often students interview with more than one Director of Studies before deciding on a good fit. Subscribing to a Director of Studies ordinarily costs $750 per month, and we adopt an affordability policy for those students unable to meet that cost without experiencing financial hardship. We also gratefully acknowledge students who contribute more than $750 per month to support their Director of Studies. Our aspiration is to never turn away students who want to learn because of cost, while also enabling Directors of Studies to make a living supporting their students.

To begin the application procedure, start by filling out the form below, and one of our Directors of Studies will reach out.
