When to sign up for the course?
You must enroll at least 3 weeks before the start of the course. This is because every participant must properly prepare for the course - complete the so called prework. Prework completion is compulsory for everyone. Hurry up! Free places disappear very quickly, and waiting lists are extremely long.
Do I have to prepare for the course?
Definitely yes! Before the course, after signing the contract you will receive prework materials - the first stage of the course. You need to make sure you apply to them thoroughly. We have observed that those candidates who do not apply to prework often do not finish the course. It is also important that you think twice about which course you want to choose.
How long does it take to complete prework?
Prework takes about 60 hours.
What hardware requirements is my computer supposed to meet so I can take the course?
Your computer should meet the following hardware requirements:
- Operating system Windows 7 or later, MacOS or Linux
- Intel i5 or Amd A10 processor
- Minimum 4GB RAM
- 10GB of free disk space
- Back-end/ Java/.NET course: Linux operating system (or the possibility to install it)
Additionally for online courses:
- connection speed of at least 10 Mbit / s
- webcam (laptop or USB)
- headphones and microphone
- system: Windows, Mac OS
- second monitor recommended
Is there a difference between a full-time, a part-time and an online course in terms of the course program?
There is no difference. The program is exactly the same for both types of courses. Each module is run by another person, a specialist in their field. In addition to your course, you will be assigned a mentor - the person you will have contact with before, during and after the course. They will be available to answer all your questions and help you deal with any arising problems.
What does it mean that I will have to work a lot at home in the evenings and at the weekends?
Our courses are very intensive and demanding so learning solely during the course is not enough. You will be given homework every day, and workshop projects will often have to be finished off over the weekend at home.
Can I combine the course with other occupations?
The full-time course (Mon-Fri) is very intensive. Apart from the classes you have to learn at home in the evenings and at the weekends. Therefore, it is not possible to effectively combine the course with part-time studies, work or other duties. Part-time and online courses allow you to combine work / study with the course, but keep it in mind that it requires self-discipline and being systematic.

How much will I earn in my first job after the course?
Your salary will depend on:
- the course you choose (front end, back end, tester)
- the company you join (corporation, software house, marketing agency, etc.)
- the form of employment you choose (B2B, contract of mandate, contract of specific work)
In general, for example after a programming course at a junior position, you can expect between EUR 23,500 - 48,000 (annual salary). You will earn more after back-end courses as opposed to front-end courses. A higher salary and a more standardized remuneration system will be provided by a large company or corporation, as opposed to a small software house.
