How do I get a scholarship for HEX Ed Pro?

At HEX, we are partnered with over 25 universities and institutions around the world. There's a very good chance that you are eligible for a scholarship of up to 100% of the fee. Submit your expression of interest in the form above, and we'll let you know if you're eligible!

Can I receive academic credit for the program?

Yes! HEX Ed Pro comes with a global transcript from an Australian university, however you'll need to check with your own university about how much credit you can get, and which subjects you can get it for. We recommend you get in touch with our team at hello@startwithhex.com, who will be able to help you navigate this with your course advisor.

Do you have payment plans available for HEX Ed Pro?

Your finances should not get in the way of your future! Get in touch with our friendly team at hello@startwithhex.com to discuss what we can do for you.

The dates don't suit me. What do I do? 

This can happen! If you have any suggestions of when is a better time for you and why, let us know at hello@startwithhex.com. Or else, if not getting academic credit isn't a deal breaker, join HEX Ed Go instead so you can have a completely asynchronous and self-paced experience!

What if I cannot finish the course within 8 weeks?

That's the beauty of HEX Ed Pro, you will not get left behind! We are moving as one unit. We've got you.

Can I enrol into multiple units?

Short answer: Yes. However, as you will be working across multiple cohorts, we just have to make sure that you will be able to catch up with the course flow. Get in touch with our team at hello@startwithhex.com to see what we can do!

Will I get a discount if I enrol into more than one HEX Ed Pro Unit?

Yes! As part of the HEX Ed Pro promise, you will receive 20% off any of HEX programs including HEX International.

What's the difference between HEX Ed Pro and HEX Ed Go? 

Great question! Here is what's different between the two: 
- HEX Ed Go is self-paced, whereas Pro is cohort-driven over 8 weeks
- HEX Ed Go is not assessed and has automatic checkpoints, whereas Pro is assessed and marked
- HEX Ed Go does not allow you to receive academic credit, whereas Pro gives you credit
- HEX Ed Go gives you optional Slack access but no 1:1 mentoring, whereas Pro gives you 1:1 mentoring and access to live & online events
- HEX Ed Go is priced at $290/unit (or, $1450 for 5 units), whereas Pro is priced at $790/unit (or, $3950 for 5 units)
