Program Structure

  • How is this Nanodegree program structured?

    The React Nanodegree program is composed of one (1) Term of four (4) months. A Term has fixed start and end dates.

    To graduate, students must successfully complete 3 projects, each of which affords you the opportunity to apply and demonstrate new skills that you learn in the lessons. Each project will be reviewed by an expert project reviewer from the Udacity reviewer network. Your reviewer will give you detailed feedback on your work, and either confirm that you've successfully passed the project, or provide you with details on what you'll need to improve in order to pass. If you do not pass a project, you will need to make corrections and then submit again, repeating this however many times are necessary until you successfully pass the project. You cannot successfully complete the term until you pass all projects.

  • After I graduate, will I still have access to the curriculum?

    As a Nanodegree program student, you will retain access to the program materials for a period of time after graduation and you may download certain materials for your own records if you wish. Please note however, that students who leave the program—or who are removed from the program for failure to meet the final deadline—prior to successfully graduating, will cease to have access.

  • Do you offer the opportunity for students to pause their studies for this program?

    No. The fixed-term nature of the React Nanodegree program, and the need for maintaining a consistent and stable student body throughout, doesn't allow for offering the option to pause your studies.

  • Is this program self-paced?

    No. The start and end dates of any given Term are fixed, and you must complete all assigned projects by the end date. However, projects may be submitted at any time during a Term, and individual project deadlines are recommendations, not requirements. So within a Term, there is some opportunity to work at your own pace. But you should plan to follow our recommended timeline, as this will best enable you to keep pace with your peers and complete the program on time.
