Software Engineer FastTrack (Online)

Next Cohort:
30th Nov 2021 - 9th Jun 2022
Tue, Thu & Sat
Online Classes

Gain a comprehensive understanding of how to build software in our 24-week immersive part-time bootcamp, and gain the skills you need to become a Junior Software Engineer.

Our Software Engineer FastTrack course covers all aspects of software development. You'll learn about the tools you’ll need to get started, before moving on to gain an in-depth understanding of one of the most popular programming languages: JavaScript.

You'll then build backend services (or APIs) that can store, manipulate and provide data, which you'll later use when building frontend applications which are able to consume this data and present it in a user-friendly manner.

Manchester Codes was a life changing experience for me. You are joining a community of helpful likeminded people always willing to help.

Nathan Saide

Been working as a dev for almost a year now and couldn't be happier with the decision I made to join Manchester Codes.

Zein Aji

The tutors were so supportive and made sure that this didn't affect the delivery of material

Anna Baulquin

They are all lovely easy-to-talk-to people who help create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in the cohort

Viktoriia Petrova

Great course for everybody who is wishing to work in Tech. The course is very intense and has lots of interesting projects and materials.

Sofia Dionísio

I would definitely recommend Manchester Codes to anyone looking to learn a new skill.

Ethan Davis

Since Graduating in October Manchester Codes have continued to support me in my attempt to begin a career as a Software Developer with interview prep

Jasmin

Another key beneficial part of the Manchester Codes course which is often overlooked by those learning to code, is the opportunity to work closely with other students and to collaborate on work throughout the course. Pair programming/working closely with others collaboratively is a key skill to master that will make working as a developer much easier.

Scott

Full-time bootcamps were out of the question as I could not afford to give up working full-time, so Manchester Codes was the perfect option. The course is intense and is a big commitment (the 20 hours per week of independent study the course recommends outside of lectures is a realistic expectation), however it was worth every hour and every penny.

Aishah

The tutors are really helpful, approachable and have the very up to date knowledge on development so no questions went unanswered.

Dan

A new career is literally 6 months away if you start today. You will be hard pushed to find a course that returns what this one does in the amount of time it takes to complete.

Jacqui

I really liked the wide range of topics we covered, there was a curriculum to follow which meant the course progressed at a fast pace and each week we were learning a new concept.

Brad

As I progressed through the weeks, all of the different skills I had learnt came together to create bigger projects allowing me to gain a deeper understanding of the course material.
