Why did we create a digital campus for students?

Finding resources for students to grow in their technical career is not easy. Students are faced with the rigors of their academic learning while also searching for practical industry knowledge that is applicable to their career goals. Unfortunately, resources are scattered about, and it’s hard to grow alone in any technical career. Global Campus introduces students to a community across the globe who are interested in pursuing a career in tech and provides them with access to a variety of industry tools and resources at no cost!

How can I become a registered Global Campus student?

If you’re a student, you can register for Global Campus by applying for the GitHub Student Developer Pack. Once accepted, you will be officially registered as a Global Campus student. You can then access Global Campus anytime at https://education.github.com.

This is just the beginning! Global Campus will continue to grow and become a place to learn and meet other students around the globe and in your local community. Come grow with GitHub on Global Campus!
