Students with demonstrated financial need can apply for an Income Share Agreement. An income share agreement (ISA for short) is a fair and ethical form of student financing to help young people achieve their study dreams. ISAs work like a Stokvel: you receive financing for your studies, and then when you’re earning enough to support yourself you pay back a percentage of your salary to support the education of future generations. Simply put, an ISA enables you to study now and pay later.

Alternatively, students who have a small but steady income can apply for a loan, through our loan partners, where repayments can be as little as R500 per month. Students who are not earning themselves can apply with a family member or sponsor who can prove a steady income.

*Finding and training future tech talent*
Democratising education by making it open and accessible to all talented young people (17-35 years), WeThinkCode_ sources high potential software engineers regardless of previous education, financial means or socio-economic background. Through an innovative online application process, we source top talent from all backgrounds.

At WeThinkCode_ there are no teachers, no classes, and students learn through a peer-to-peer problem solving environment. In partnership with world-class institution Ecole 42 (based in Paris and Silicon Valley), WeThinkCode_ trains young minds to become software engineers that think differently and are equipped with skills to thrive in the digital era.

*Partnering with companies looking for tech skills*
Tuition-free, our two-year course is sponsored by companies looking to thrive in the digital economy and secure their tech talent pipelines. Corporate partners provide financial support, skills development and a path to employment for students. In return, students pledge to complete two 4-month internships with corporate sponsors and work for the sponsor at the end of their studies. Corporate sponsorship is R150,000 per student, which covers the 2-year course.
