New Courses at Spark

We are developing new courses for our curriculum that will be available starting in September 2023! See what new courses you will be able to enrol in, and what skills you can develop by learning these new subjects.

Why choose Spark  

We always try to stay up to date with the latest trends and developments that arise in the Educational Industry. Whether that means adopting future-ready teaching methods or creating flexible learning opportunities, the goal is always to offer a future-ready perspective to our students. So that is why we are offering new courses starting September 2023!


Since we live in a society that’s forever changing, we also place great emphasis on what our students learn, not just how they learn. Diversity is the key to everything, so the more options students have, the more chances to find and study what they really like. 


If we are to take a look at the traditional schooling system and its values, most of the emphasis is placed on primary subjects that are usually mandatory for everyone. Subjects like these are for example maths, literature, biology, chemistry, etc. However, since the time when the only (subjectively of course) successful careers were that of a doctor or a teacher, the job market has suffered significant changes and new careers have emerged that we didn’t even dream of 20 years ago. 


As our goal is for our students to succeed, we want to make sure that they have access to all the knowledge they ever dreamt about. So whether they want to be architects or fashion designers, or even influencers, we got them, and we want to offer them all the support they need.
