Step 2: The test

Once we have gone through your application we will inform you whether or not you will be invited to come and take our introduction test. Don’t worry, it’s not that tough! We will give you a brief lesson and then will test you afterwards. The purpose of the test is to see whether you display the ability to quickly learn and understand something that you have not been exposed to before.

Step 3: The meet-up

Now that the test is done we can just get to know each other. You will come and have cup of coffee with us and will chat about where you see yourself going upon completing the course and whether you will be a good fit for the program. If not we will advise you on other study options.

Step 4: Bootcamp

You will join us and other students for a one week bootcamp. We will do an introduction to web development and you will get a taste of what it will be like for the rest of the semester. There is no cost for the bootcamp.

Bootcamp starts 20 February ’17

Step 5: You’re in!

At the end of bootcamp we will inform you whether you have been accepted into the program or not.

Date for the program: 27 February ’17 till 7 July ’17


Student fees are R2,500, which can be paid as a monthly sum of R500 per month. Students pay for the remainder of their fees retroactively through work placement fees or once they begin working as web developers. Computers will be provided.
