Apple expanded its Everyone Can Code initiative to more than 20 colleges and universities outside of the US. These schools can 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. The programme gives hundreds of thousands of students the chance to become proficient in the Swift programming language and build fundamental skills. Among the schools that are part of the programme are Australian higher education institution RMIT University, Mercantec in Denmark, Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen in the Netherlands, Unitec Institute of Technology in New Zealand and Plymouth University in the UK.

RMIT Universirty is one of the broadest international deployments of the App Development with Swift Curriculum to date, Apple said in a press release. Starting from November, RMIT will offer the App Development with Swift curriculum through RMIT Online. On top of that, a new vocational course will be taught on campus. RMIT will also offer scholarships for school teachers who want to learn coding, and a free summer school course at RMIT’s City campus will give secondary students the chance to learn the basics of coding.
