"From Project Management to Software Developer in 3 months and loved every single second of it!"

Northcoders was one of the best decisions I made. After learning to code in my spare time for a couple of years and attending multiple meet-ups, I decided I wanted to make the career change from project management to software development. I previously... Read More

"Northcoders is a supportive learning environment that I looked forward to everyday."

My whole experience of Northcoders was really enjoyable and I learned so much in a short space of time. The tutors were friendly and patient, so that I always felt ok asking for help. In class a lot of ideas were explained through live coding, which I... Read More

Initially I wasn't sure whether I should self-learn instead, because I had done a lot of coding before for data science. I'm now really glad I didn't do that. It would have taken a lot longer to make the career change and I wouldn't have had the experience of pair coding, support, and friendship that I got in NC.

"Exactly as described on the Northcoders website."

As an older student with an interesting work history, it took me a little longer to find a job. I still started work only three months after graduation. Everything else, you can see on the website. It really is the real deal - the staff are all helpful... Read More

"Gives you the confidence to grapple with all sorts of things"

NorthCoders hand-hold you to the point where you make a fully-working application with a web-based front-end. When I was there, they taught you the fundamentals of JavaScript before you delved into databases and building a RESTful API for an Express router.... Read More

Hi Christopher, we're really glad that you were able to learn so much and that you found this experience so valuable! It's intense, but it's a lot of fun. We're sorry you struggled with React. We teach HTML and CSS at the end of the Precourse, but we... Read More

"Life changing"

Before I started Northcoders, I was apprehensive i.e. I was not sure it was even the `real deal`. However, I was so desperately passionate about coding that I simply had to muster the courage and go for it. The pre-entrance assessment was a little scary.... Read More

CURRICULUM / TUTORING

JOB SUPPORT
For me personally the hiring process went very well; NorthCoders set me up with several interviews resulting in me accepting an offer of employment around a month after graduating. They also provide some assistance with CV writing / interview technique etc. In my opinion one part of the process that could be improved is communicating feedback from hiring partners. I do also know I have been fortunate throughout the hiring process in finding work relatively quickly; the number of jobs on the board would ideally be higher considering the amount of graduates.

Overall I would wholeheartedly recommend NorthCoders to those looking to get into software development. It provided everything I had hoped for and I had an excellent time whilst studying there too!

Many pros but mainly the fantastic tutors that help you every step of the way and help develop your skills (including 1-1 mentor sessions).
The environment is great and helps you prepare for a real tech job.
The students I studied with have become... Read More

Cons -
Due to the numbers of graduates (roughly between 8 and 12 people every 3 weeks) the market is slightly saturated in Manchester so less jobs available than a year ago
