The Digital Freelancer Nanodegree program, built by Udacity in collaboration with Google’s digital skills-building program for Arabic speakers Maharat Min Google, is aimed at building the next generation of MENA digital freelancers.


The one month-long program is offered in Arabic. It is designed to teach students how to find and win freelance projects by helping them develop a marketable field of expertise, including digital marketing, web development, mobile development, data science, and other skills.

In addition to the collaboration with Google, the program features contributions from a wide range of program partners, such as the UK-based freelance marketplace PeoplePerHour, the Egyptian jobs site Wuzzuf, the microlancer marketplace Maharati, and the translation and editorial freelance specialists Ureed.
