"Worth It"

I spent three months with a group of 10 other lovely people, learning how to code. Despite the hard work, I never dreaded Monday morning - in fact, I often looked forward to it.
10 days after graduating I had an offer for more than the average graduating... Read More

"Can't recommend this course enough for anyone wanting to get into coding."

I completed this course over the summer of 2018 as I was unhappy in my career choice and wanted to try something new. Northcoders provided a comprehensive course with practically round-the-clock support. They helped me not just to get a job, but to get... Read More

"Incredibly intense and rich experience"

I spent a fantastic and intensive 3 months last year learning more than I ever did over the three years of my degree. I'd messed around with JavaScript a bit before but on Day 1 I was learning more and after each week, I couldn't believe how much I had... Read More

"Not all bootcamps are created equal"

I was a bit dubious at first - nobody seemed to have a bad word to say on the whole internet (except the bloke below - but you know, the clue is in the name..!) Because of that I went in to meet the team before I applied and it immediately changed my... Read More

A friend of mine went to a competitor bootcamp and wound up saying she wished she'd not gone there because they seemed like they were just playing at it and copy-catting everything Northcoders said but didn't deliver the goods. They literally took her money online with no application process what soever so watch out for that. Not all bootcamps are created equal, they say... It's simply true, it seems..!

In terms of the experience it was extraordinary from start to finish and I found work in under 2 weeks. I really, really like my new job and am incredibly grateful to the team at Northcoders for making the match.

I guess my advice would be, watch out for bootcamps trying to copy success and don't be taken in by their cheaper prices or copy cat tactics. Didn't pay off for my friend... I believe Northcoders was worth every single penny three times over and would pay it again every time. Cheers guys.

"Good if you're based in Manchester"

The best part of the course is the group mentality - you spend 3 months with the same small group and help each other though but as one of the earlier cohorts it was still developing and growing as a course so there were flaws. It was a huge financial... Read More
