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

Broadly Accessible

No previous technical or design experience is required to join the academy. It doesn't matter which industry you studied or worked, every experience is useful.

TestimonialsFrom our Code Academy

Anja Rupnik
Codaisseur Academy was an amazing journey. In two crazy months, full of hard work I learned more then I thought I am going to in such a short period of time and with no previous experience. Just one month after finishing the academy I got amazing job opportunity. The program is well structured and team is great and very supportive. If you want to place a job in web development, you should definitely take Codaisseur course since it provides you with enough knowledge to do so in just two months!!

"Probably one of the best decisions I've ever made" Programming is something I've had an interest in for a while, but I found that online learning didn't really get me to where I needed to be (employed!). When I saw the Codaisseur program online, I signed up immediately for the March cohort (after digging around online for any blogs about people's experiences on the course – and, yes, I kept my own blog too at leefreeman.xyz if you want to read in more detail!) Other reviews give details of the curriculum (Ruby/Rails, Javascript/React, essentially), so I won't go into great detail but, suffice to say, there's some cutting edge stuff there, the teachers were excellent and the reader (online course materials) is a really valuable resource to refer back to. After completing the course, I found it quite easy to set up some interviews and accepted a position that I'll be starting next week (i.e. 5/6 weeks after the end of the course) with a company that saw me presenting at the end-of-course demo night. If you're considering signing up, remember that this is an intensive course. It will take up all your time for 2 months and you will be challenged (so start doing some preparatory work now!). I would not hesitate to recommend Codaisseur to someone who is committed to becoming a web developer.

I always wanted to get my own start-up going so that's when I took a leap into the world of coding by doing some online courses. This was a great first introduction but there was still the challenge of building on what I had already learned and utilise those skills the current job market. That's where Codaisseur came in; at Codaisseur I learned so much by just doing. Furthermore, I was provided access to a great network of start-ups looking for developers and have since landed my first developer job.

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.

Optional 2-Year Acceleration ProgramContinue learning with the Codaisseur community!

Having completed the academy, you can be admitted into our 2-Year Junior Acceleration Program. The aim of this program is to provide you with further training, support, and mentorship so you can grow and expand your current skills in a more expedited manner.

We will achieve this through our advanced monthly classes, one-on-one mentoring hours, support via the Codaisseur community and ongoing access to all online course materials. Not only is this a benefit to our graduates, it has proven to be a valuable support outlet for the companies hiring our juniors.

Choose Your Own Job in your new careerGet hired by yourself, or with a developer on your side

It is in our best interest that all (code and design) graduates find suitable employment. You will become a junior UX professional after the academy; working not only in technology companies, but as a valuable asset in any company that works with technology. We mean this, and our very own model forces us to get you hired! We provide leads from our ever-growing network of companies, but you are more than welcome to solicit directly with a company of your choosing.

We involve and introduce companies as much as possible throughout the academy and after; to make the transition easier and more streamlined for our graduates.
