About Qvault

We not only make computer science education affordable, but through constant content refinement, we give students a single online resource to find the best CS education.

Our Story

When my wife started learning computer science basics, she experienced so many difficulties due largely to confusing platforms, not knowing where to start, and being too technically inexperienced to do pure self-study with textbooks and free lectures. As a traditional computer science graduate from university, it took me longer than it should have to understand what she was going through, but once I was able to put myself in her shoes, we decided this was a problem for enough people that it was worth solving.

It's hard to keep going.

40% of college students drop out before receiving a degree, and we find those numbers unacceptable. We’ve spent a lot of time working on the motivation problem, and we’ve found that gamifying the learning experience goes a long way to helping our students finish string.

We’ve built an achievements system that rewards students with free courses by staying engaged and doing well in their course work.

Undraw Man Absorbed

Schools and bootcamps are too expensive.

The average total cost of public college in the USA is between $25,290 and $40,940. Even coding bootcamps that cut corners in order to get students out the door faster can cost around half of that amount.

Qvault’s goal is to give students a complete entire computer science undergraduate education for just a few hundred dollars.

By meeting our goal, students will pay less than one-tenth of what they would at a university or Bootcamp, and the education they receive will be so much more useful and applicable than what’s taught at boot camps.
