I've just graduated from the academy and have very fresh impressions about the program, team and instructors.
The idea for the course is great but i have the feeling that we were part of experiment supported by the local political party and some businesses. The program and the materials were not very well structured with many wired and not clear explanations of the terminologies and algorithms. Most of the tutors were not experienced in teaching adults. There is a big administrative team working mainly to make good marketing PR profile of the boot camp to be able to sell the course and the students after that. There was not good team work and supportive environment and the tutors don't really care about this at all. If you don't have at least one year of experience in coding befor...
I have just recently graduated, the course is very challenging and rewarding. Instructors are great and students support team are superb while you are still a student.
There is just one problem, don't hold your expectations for finding a job. If you were lucky enough to find a job you are good, and codeclan will do their best to stay in touch with you as it helps them sell the course, if you weren't successful in securing a job than you are completely on your own. Although codeclan are not making any promises that you feel find a job, they do promise to help. This promise is vague and open to interpretation, all I can say is that they don't have a code of conduct within their agreement with employers.
Once you finish the course you are subject to misinformation, and staff members wi...

I studied at CodeClan from September '17 - January '18, and I thought that the course was excellent.
The instructors in Glasgow had a great balance of support and encouragement. I think it is testament to them and CodeClan as a whole that one month after graduating, 75% our class had jobs.
I had 6 interviews by the end of the course, and two job offers to accept. I'm now working as a software developer - I wish I'd have done the course years ago!
Firstly, I have to come out and say that overall I loved the course and wouldn't trade in the experience for anything. However, at present I can't reccomend it as is because of the business model.
The tuition was great. The instructors were fantastic. I learnt tons. None of this was a problem.
The course promises help with job placements, at which point you are made to feel that – despite paying 4k – you are now nothing more than a piece of cattle. Miscommunication and false promises made to employers end in few people getting jobs quickly or being offered a job in the career that they joined the course to change from. A number of graduates were not taken seriously by the employers when they went in for developer roles and ended up being offered places in tech support or marketing...Read more
