"Life-changing experience"

I never even thought I'd pass the entry test. And yet, here I am, just under six months after starting the Northcoders boot camp, with an amazing job as a front-end developer.

That Northcoders can teach you so much in just twelve weeks is astonishing,... Read More

You might think that twelve weeks wouldn't be enough to get you ready for a career in software development, but there's a clear focus on best practices and in-demand skills, and Northcoders has an excellent careers support service that can help you get to where you need to be as quickly as possible.

If you truly want to kickstart your career as a software developer, I can't recommend Northcoders highly enough.

"Incredible from start to finish"

Northcoders was an excellent experience, from start to finish. From my application I was constantly in contact with the team, they supported me through my entry challenge and provided plenty of pre-course material which meant we were all at the same starting... Read More

All of the tutors were extremely helpful and no problem was ever too much hassle. They really helped us to solve problems we were having without ever actually giving us the answers. At the end of each block it was amazing to look back and see how much progress we had made in such a short time, something I was never able to achieve self-learning at home. The final phase of the course is the project phase, this at first seemed to be the most daunting but we soon realised that we were well prepared, and in our project group (4 of us) we designed built and tested a project far beyond anything that I expected or would have dreamed of before the course. With no intervention and being left in a work environment we were able to put all the knowledge we learned over the previous 9 weeks and come up with a finished product we were all extremely proud of. This final stage left us with really good experience and ideas that really match up with how the industry works which has been a huge benefit in my career post-course.

The whole course is geared towards how things work in the industry and so it really prepared us for life in the working world, nothing was a surprise and I've been able to settle in and hit the ground running. The careers team were great and really supportive and gave me plenty of advice and the course and tutors went above and beyond in preparing us for the work-place. Because of this I was able to accept an offer as a Software Developer within 5 working days of finishing the course, which was incredibly fast.

Northcoders is a great experience, in the 6 months since I applied I have gone from a novice programmer to an exciting career as a Software Developer at a big mobile company. I've also made plenty of good friends many of whom I am now working with in my new role. I couldn't recommend it more.
