Students have to do a creative exercise, attend an open evening (dates are below) and have two face to face interviews before acceptance.

TestimonialsFrom our Code Academy

Timmo   Hage
A few months ago I decided I wanted to do something different with my life; Codaisseur gave me the chance to get my foot in the door of the programming-world. I had a great experience during the bootcamp, I met lots of awesome people and I was amazed by how my entire class evolved into legit developers. I’m glad to have their support for the next period because I just got offered a job within an awesome company!

Emil Hellblom
Codaisseur is a very life changing experience, during the weeks I spent at Codaisseur I got to work on very challenging projects and met many interesting and like minded people. Finishing Codaisseur has given me the opportunity to move and start my dream career a in a new country right after graduation.

Marco Basilico
I'm very satisfied with this experience. Although I had working experiences as a developer, I learned and enjoyed a lot of new things for web development and, of course, I met great people. Thank this I made it possible to continue my career in Holland. So, it was totally worth it.

Hajime Suzuki
I'm satisfied with most of the part of the curriculum. There could be more direction in the content: for instance in the later of the course, we had some days that we basically just researched course materials by ourselves and we didn't get many explanations why you would use certain libraries, etc. I prefer to get more guidance.

Joost Calis
I signed up for this bootcamp without having written a single letter of code in my life. Now 2 months later I'm working at a young startup, drowning in a whole new code-base but loving every second of it. I learned so much in such a short timespan but just as importantly, I've met some pretty cool people along the way.

Affordable Admission FeeWe work hard to make this course affordable to anyone

We work hard to make this course affordable to anyone. The admission fee of €800 is the best value for money you will find anywhere in the world.

We can make you this offer because we work closely with the companies that will hire you. Since there are already a lot of graduates that work for companies, and they also need designers.

The company that hires you will pay us back the remainder of your education cost - but only if you get hired in a real paid job. You will work for these companies directly, and you will choose where you want (and don’t want) to work.

Work together with codersIn close collaboration with the highly successful Codaisseur Code Academy

No online course or university with teach you to work closely with developers. The coding Academy runs in the same building, that means that most assignments, projects and sprints will be worked on together.

Working with developers and people with different skills set you up for success in any future company or with any project.
