The Design Academy is a new concept of Codaisseur. Since 2016, we have been running a very successful Code Academy and we decided to do the same thing for digital Design (UX, UI, Visual, Product Management).

Design is a skill needed for almost any company and encompasses all aspects of the end-user's interaction with the company, communication, its services, and its products.

You will be hired as a junior UX Designer or researcher, Product Manager/owner or UI/visual designer within 4 months of graduation.

Learn all about User Research, User Interaction Design and Visual Design. All that is needed to be an effective team member in a small or big company.

No Cure No Pay

We are accountable for your success. If you are not hired within 4 months, we bear your tuition fee.

Tough Selection Process

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.

Actually Affordable

You will always pay an €800 admission fee. Your (future) employer will pay the tuition fee of €9120.

TestimonialsFrom our Code Academy

Rosiene Dilly
After the bootcamp I can say that I learned more than just programming. I learned that with focus, dedication and commitment almost anything is possible! Thank you Codaisseur!

The course was super difficult but enrolling was one of the best decisions I have made. I have learned so much and now I'm ready for my career as a developer.

When I was looking for coding schools in the Netherlands, one single data point made me go for Codaisseur: not all of the students make it to the end of the 9 weeks. This is unfortunate on one hand because it sucks to be rejected. On the other hand, it means that at the end of the school you'll have accomplished a great deal and you'll be ready to start looking for a job in web development. So don't make any plans for these 9 weeks, because you'll be at school during the day and you'll be working on assignments during the weekend. You'll be frustrated at times but you'll also get rewarded more and more as soon as things start making sense in your head. I recommend the school 100% - just don't assume you can make it to the end without fully committing to it ;) PS. I got a good job offer within 30 days from the end of the school.

There are times where I found it super frustrating and tedious, but I did have prior experience. I found the later parts of it invaluable. Especially teamwork and realising I could help more junior developers. I really enjoyed my time here and made wonderful friends.

Beforehand I never suspected that you could learn so much in such a short amount of time. Everybody you meet is eager to learn as much as they can and it motivates you to keep up and keep going. In a few weeks you feel a very positive group cohesion arise. What it comes down to is that, after Codaisseur, knowing I still have a lot of knowledge to gain, I feel ready to start this journey as a professional Developer.

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.
