    You’ll only be able to apply if you:

    • Intermediate to advanced programming level, or completed our Web Fundamentals course
    • Able to devote at least 50 hours a week to study
    • UK / EU citizen, or leave to remain in the UK

    *If you are not eligible to work but are eligble to live in the UK for the duration of a course, you can take our training-only option, where you would complete the same training program for the first twelve weeks, but couldn't be considered for the work experience phase.

    If you’re completely new to code but massively keen maybe try our online introduction to code or women-only weekend workshops first.
