A curriculum years in the making

The BOOTCAMP curriculum is tailored towards complete beginners, and has been in development for over 4 years - longer than any other curriculum of its kind. Our team continue to refine, update and add develop it further, based on student and industry feedback.

Tooling and workflow

Gain an understanding of the tools needed to get started with software development and how to install them, so that you are ready to hit the ground running.

Command Line

Learn how to navigate files and folders programmatically using a tool called the Command Line - a best practice allowing you to work much more efficiently as a Software Engineer.

Git and GitHub

Keep track of changes in your code using Git. You can then store these changes online on GitHub, allowing other developers to collaborate on your work.

HTML, CSS and DOM manipulation

Create basic websites in HTML, before giving layout and extra aesthetic to this content with CSS. You'll then learn how to use JavaScript to create interactive experiences.

Financing your studies

We offer our own interest-free finance option, and we’ve also partnered with Coursebud to offer longer term financing for your course fees and living costs.

Interest Free Finance

Pay your course fees in up to 12 monthly installments at 0% APR.

Repay over 5 years

Find a suitable loan from a trusted lender in minutes and on payment terms to suit you.

Live lectures. Face-to face support.

Our lectures are delivered live online, which means if you want your tutor to explain something more clearly or you have a question, all you need to do is ask (or raise a virtual hand). You can also rest assured - because our classes are live - that you are being taught the most up to date practices. We record each lesson, so don't worry if you can't make it every time!

After each lecture, our teaching team will be on hand to assist you whilst you work through our curriculum, and you'll have the company of your cohort in our online classroom.

Live lecture

Refined curriculum. Bespoke platform.

No other institution has operated a part-time course for as long as we have - we've been iterating on our curriculum based on student feedback and industry demand for 4 years, and we continue to do so.

Our learning materials are accessible on our custom built learning platform. Here you can also keep track of your progress, share helpful resources with your peers and participate in daily code challenges.

£500 off for eligible applicants.

We aim to make our cohorts as diverse and balanced as possible, and we regularly review our performance in this regard. Until recently our Diversity Grant Fund had only covered people identifying as women or non-binary, but we have now extended it to cover other underrepresented groups in the industry.

Therefore, if you identify as a woman or non-binary, are from a Black, Asian or minority ethnic background, or you have a disability, then you are eligible for a £500 discount on the tuition fee. This will be deducted from your total balance upon enrolment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. It does assume you've completed our free Introduction to Programming course and you meet our other prerequisites, but aside from that you won't need any prior experience.

We recommend you dedicate a minimum of 20 hours a week to the course (including class time). This recommendation is intended to get you ready for employment in the tech industry after course completion. From our experience, students that don't commit to these hours take longer to find employment after the course.

Yes. The course is designed to fit around the 9 to 5 with evening and weekend sessions - the majority of our students study alongside full time jobs and are able to cope with the demands of the course - even more so with remote working as people have more time free to study.

If you think you might struggle then you might want to consider strategically booking your annual leave to allow for extra study time every so often (take a day off every 2 or 3 weeks!) or asking your employer for unpaid leave/annual leave purchase or a temporary reduction in hours in order to give yourself some buffer. However, many of our students manage to commit to the schedule once they get going.

We also have an optional Saturday drop-in session on all course dates, which runs 10:00-16:00. This is a session designed for extra support and you can join and leave the session any time during the set hours. If for any reason you aren't able to make one of the weekday sessions then this is a great opportunity to catch up.

Before you are able to take this course, you will need to take our free Introduction to Programming course. This should take you around 25 hours, and should give you a good idea if programming is for you. You don't need any additional coding knowledge and complete beginners are welcomed.

Note that you can still enrol onto Software Engineer FastTrack without completing our Introduction to Programming course, but you will still need to complete this prior to your chosen cohort start date.

In addition, you will need to be fluent in the English language, and we recommend you have a GCSE (or equivalent) in Maths and English - grade C or above - though this isn't mandatory and if you have a good understanding of the English language and are comfortable with basic numeracy concepts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, calculating percentages, dealing with decimals, simple problem solving etc.) then you shouldn't have any issues on the course.

Yes. This course is 100% online, but in a virtual classroom environment, so you are supported by our teaching team. We have years of experience teaching in a classroom environment, and have replicated this experience online with interactive lectures, virtual classrooms and remote 121 support.

We recommend you have a computer with at least a 13 inch display and 8GB RAM. It is a little bit easier to participate on the course if you are running Mac OS X or Linux, but Windows users should still get on okay.

As the course is fully online, you will also need a webcam and a microphone if this isn't built into your computer. Most modern laptops have these built in, but if yours doesn't then there are external ones available to buy.

Yes. At the end of the course you will have at least 10 projects on your own personal GitHub account that you can present to employers. This is the standard approach for Software Engineer portfolios and will put you in good stead when it comes to landing your first role in software development.

Many of our students go on into careers in software development with roles including:

  • Backend Developer

  • Frontend Developer

  • Full-stack Developer

You aren't limited to these roles however - the experience can benefit other roles in the tech industry such as project management, account management, user experience (UX) etc. and we have seen some of our students go into these kind of roles.

Others use the knowledge gained in the course to add technical capability to their businesses, to start new a new business, or to progress further with their current employers. Whichever avenue you decide to take, we can support you on the way.

Please do reach out to us! You can drop us an email on [email protected], or if you prefer you can use our contact form.

We aim to get back to all queries within 3-5 working days.
