This course is open to anyone 16 years old and over. No prior coding experience or academic qualifications are required to apply.

No – this course is designed for beginners and no academic qualifications are required to join it.

The course includes written guidance. You will also need to chat to your peers verbally on campus and in writing via Discord. If a potential student’s English is not strong enough, you would be able to join one of the college’s ESOL classes before joining the programme.

It is not possible to do the Selection Pool remotely. You will need to be on campus for most of the 3 weeks. The peer-to-peer learning is essential to complete the projects, and many projects are done in teams. There is flexibility to do some learning remotely, but you will be at a disadvantage if you are not on campus frequently. 

For the Fellowship, you are required to be on campus at least twice a week so you can collaborate with your peers and work through the projects together in your groups.

After you complete your studies, you do not receive an accredited degree as this educational model is new in the UK and does not correspond to any traditional definitions.

This is not a problem in the technology sector as companies care about what you can do, who you are and how you work. You will also build an impressive portfolio of your work throughout the course which you can share with companies whilst developing soft skills, such as communication, collaboration, autonomy, teamwork, which are all essential for a developer role.
