Our mission

At Harbour.Space University, we're on a mission to encourage inclusiveness among nationalities, gender and backgrounds in our classrooms, which will eventually be reflected in the workplace.
The gender imbalance in the world of technology is a major problem with multiple repercussions.

As our personal and working lives are profoundly shaped by technology, it's important to build a tech industry that is inclusive and free from any gender bias.

For that reason, we are committed to contributing to decreasing the gap between women and men studying and working in technology starting from the classroom.
Equality in the workplace is directly affected by the dynamics of classrooms. With that in mind, we aspire to build classrooms that embrace and even advocate for gender equality and women empowerment.

We believe International Women's Day should be an all-year-round worldwide call to action for accelerating gender parity, we want to play our part by joining the Global Theme.

"A challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change."

That's why we also #ChooseToChallenge.

About the Scholarship

Only about 20% of the tech workforce is female. With this scholarship, we want to encourage and support more participation of women in technology.

Frequently asked questions

When should I apply?

The admission process for the 2021 - 2022 academic year has already started. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, which means that there is no application deadline. We will continue to accept applications only until full enrollment has been reached. Programmes have limited spaces, 25 people each. Therefore, we recommend you apply as soon as possible to ensure that there is a place available within the programme (and to have time to process your visa application, if required).

What proficiency in English is required?

As all of our courses are taught in English, we require that our students speak English well. While we take work experience and standardised test scores into consideration, we do not have a specific set of requirements. Your abilities to convey your thoughts in English and whether they will be good enough to engage during the courses are evaluated during the interview.

What happens if I get accepted, but cannot join the university in September because of Covid-19?

We understand we’re living in uncertain times. That’s why students who are unable to pursue their education offline will have the option of deferring their studies to another semester or year. In that case, they are kindly requested to communicate their decision as soon as possible to the Admissions Team. They will be more prepared than ever to help and evaluate each applicant’s situation on a case-by-case basis to find a solution that ensures that nobody misses the opportunity to join Harbour.Space.

Is there accomodation provided?

At the moment, there is no accommodation provided by Harbour.Space. Students are expected to find their own accommodation. However, we can recommend some student organisations that can help you with finding accommodation.

Do I need a visa?

For our campus in Barcelona, all students from Non-European Union countries must obtain a student visa in their countries. For our campus in Bangkok, all non-Thai national students must first submit the documents to the local Thai Embassy or Consulate to apply for the visa in their countries, following the process of applying to the COE (Certificate of Entry).
A student visa will allow the holder to remain in either Spain or Thailand to seek studies, research or training programmes.
