JetBrains Academy Is Getting Ready to Hit the Market

Back in February 2019, we announced the Early Access Program (EAP) for JetBrains Academy – an educational platform with a focus on learning by doing. We launched the program with a curriculum for Java including 25 projects that students could build while learning and practicing new concepts.

These EAP months have been very exciting! With more than 130,000 registered students, it has brought us an incredible amount of user feedback. Users have shared so many wonderful ideas with us. These ideas have led us to rethink and rework JetBrains Academy again and again, always striving to make it a better platform for learning to program. It now features Java and Python, with Kotlin and Frontend tracks under construction, and it offers more than 100 projects and over 870 topics.

Today JetBrains Academy is not only an educational platform, but it is also a community of passionate learners. We are enormously grateful to those who have let us be a part of their learning journey! We want to make JetBrains Academy the best educational platform, and now we’re ready to take the next important step – moving beyond the EAP.

What’s next?

JetBrains Academy will remain in the Early Access Program (EAP) with free access until July 1, 2020.

If you register on the platform before July 1, 2020

  • You will continue to receive free access to all JetBrains Academy learning activities and resources until January 1, 2021.
  • You will get a 50% discount off a regular price of $49.90/month for the following 12 months after the free period ends, and will need to pay only $24.90/month for your subscription.


Q&A session

We will endeavor to address any questions and concerns you may have about the upcoming subscription access model before the end of the EAP. To make this easier for you and for us, we are now opening a special thread on Reddit that will be available for the next 24 hours. In this thread, you can ask any questions you have about the upcoming changes. We will then accumulate all the questions and we will answer them both on Reddit and in a special post here on the blog. We will continue to keep you posted with updates and product news.
