Hi Cornelia, that’s an interesting question. It depends what you mean by “in this type of learning.”

Could I succeed in an online, self-directed curriculum without the experience of traditional university? For me, I think so, though the DIY approach might not foster work ethic in the same way that a pressure-packed university environment would for others. Did my undergrad math experience helped me succeed in learning computer science and data science fundamentals? Definitely.

If I’m missing the spirit of your question, please let me know.
