These centres form part of the ’42 Network’, in which there are 47 campuses in 26 countries and more than 17,000 students.

42, much more than a campus to learn programming

42 is a philosophy, a revolution that comes to break with all the paradigms of education. At 42, students are the protagonists of their own learning (step by step and free of charge).
