While things like math and science are important subjects to learn at school, in recent years it has been highlighted how coding is becoming just as important. This is because in this day and age where technology is becoming increasingly complex and ingrained in our lives, being able to code does open up a lot of doors in terms of one’s future.

This is why Apple themselves have launched a free coding curriculum for schools in the US, and the good news is that the company has recently announced that they’ll be expanding that curriculum to schools outside of the US as well, or to be more specific, the company will be expanding it to 20 different colleges and universities around the world.

According to Apple’s announcement, “Apple today announced the global expansion of its Everyone Can Code initiative to more than 20 colleges and universities outside of the US. These schools will now offer the App Development with Swift Curriculum, a full-year course designed by Apple engineers and educators to teach coding and app design to students of all levels and backgrounds.”

One of the universities that will be participating in this is RMIT University over in Australia. The university will now start offering Apple’s Swift curriculum through RMIT Online as part of its App Development program, as well as offer scholarships to teachers who want to learn coding. They will also be hosting a free summer school course that will give secondary school students a chance to learn about coding as well.
