Your time spent in higher education should not be just an intermezzo, a short break between the innocence of school life and the harsh future where hope that you will ever find a career you love slowly wanes.
More than twenty years ago, we realized we have to do something about this. We knew we can and must offer something more than that. That is why Algebra opened its doors. Because of you.
You are the reason we work hard every day to improve and perfect our offer. You are the reason we never compromise on quality. We want you to discover the best version of yourself during your time on Algebra University College. To find a field of work you will be passionate about and become really good at it.
Of course we take pride in all the awards and accolades received during the years. We are glad when others recognize our efforts. But our number one concern is deserving the trust you put in us.
We chose our lecturers very carefully. They will be your guides on the journey toward graduation. Their mission is to give you useful, recent and applicable knowledge of their respective areas. To make you a true expert with shining career prospects. Each lecture is envisioned as a small but significant step toward that goal. Their passion will rub onto you if you let it.
See you around the campus,
