What do I need to apply?

A computer (not necessarily your own!) and a positive attitude. We’ll take care of the rest.

Do I need to know how to do computer programming (i.e. code) to apply?

Depends on what program you are applying for. For the web development program, you should have some basic knowledge of programming. Hopefully, you have worked on some projects (own or work) already. If you have a GitHub account, even better. You can find great courses online on CodeAcademy, Udemy and Udacity for example on topics such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React. For the machine learning program we expect you to have previous experience i.e. from studying STEM subjects.

How the participants are chosen?

We do an overall assessment of the qualifications of the participants and their ability to join the program. We base our decisions on your application, online test, and personal interview. We are looking for people who we see have an opportunity to get a job after the program. This means technological skills, the right attitude, motivation to study every day at least for 8 hours and excellent English language skills.

  1. A good command of the English language and good communication skills.
  2. Motivation and ability to commit to the course (every weekday from 9-17) for 6-9 months (depending on the course) and the following full-time internship or paid employment.
  3. Your career goal is to become a software developer.
  4. Basic knowledge of programming. Hopefully, you have worked on some projects (own or work) already. If you have a GitHub account, even better.

How can I increase my chances of getting selected for the course?

There’s plenty of online resources that you can use for studying. If you have already done some projects and have those in GitHub it already increases your chances a lot.
