No, only our Full-Time Software Engineering & Full-Time Data Science Immersive is currently offering deferred tuition.
Our part-time courses are open for anyone to sign up for, however we may introduce "advanced" classes that will build on materials that were learned in preceding classes. In this case we will do our best to make sure that our students are placed in the best environment for them before registration.
Everyone is welcome to apply, however we do have a screening and selection process to select qualified applicants that demonstrate the motivation and mindset to take on our curriculum. This helps us ensure that graduates are prepared for work after the program.
There is no coding experience necessary to apply, however throughout our selection process we require applicants to complete a "coding challenge" and "technical interview" which consist of basic coding challenges. For this, we provide free resources to gain the requisite knowledge for understanding the materials.
Upon acceptance to the program, students are required to pay a HK$20,000 admissions fee to secure their spot. We do work with potential students on a case-by-case basis. Just let us know and we'll find a solution for you.
We do not issue visas or guarantee that students can obtain visas, but we can point you in the right direction.
Of course! We have many students come to us who want to learn coding for various reasons, whether its to start their own company or become a "hybrid", which is business-minded individual with enhanced tech knowledge (think digital marketers or product managers). We open our doors to students like this and highly encourage this mindset, but in some cases we do not offer deferred tuition as your post-graduation work status may not fit our current scope. In this case, we will negotiate a payment plan with you prior to joining.
We want to make sure that you can let managers, peers in your network and potential hiring managers that you have worked hard to learn new skills that benefit you and your employers. Upon completion of a course, students will receive a digital badge and certificate from Accredible that can be placed on your Linkedin profile and linked to from various sources. Full-Time Immersive students will also receive a physical certificate to show when providing credentials to whom it may concern. You can find out more about the benefits of our digital certifications here.
We are indeed legally allowed to help our students take on roles with our hiring partners. For reference or more information, our HK Employment Agency Administration (http://www.eaa.labour.gov.hk/) license number is 54279.
