What Makes Codaisseur Unique?A shared interest in each other and focus on preparing you for a career in design.

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.

Job Guarantee

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

Broad Curriculum

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.

Neenu Kurian
The academy was a turning point in my career. It helped me in landing my dream job within short time.

Juno Burger
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.

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.

Stefano Durighello
For me this was the fastest way from corporate IT to technology startup. In addition to enhancing my programming skills, Codaisseur provided me with the understanding of the startup ecosystem and the agile thinking that is required to be highly effective in a young and disruptive technology environment. Besides exposing you to the software that will underpin future products and innovative business models, the multi-year curriculum ensures continuous connection with the wider startup community and its leading-edge ideas.

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.

If you want to know more about the Code Academy, check out the full program below.

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.

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.
