Frequently Asked Questions


Academic Qualification
What does university credit-rated mean?

A university credit-rating means that a university has examined our programme and has ranked it on a qualifications framework. Our Diploma has been credit-rated by the University of the West of Scotland at Level 8 on the Scottish Qualification Framework. This is the equivalent of level 5 on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and Level 5 on the European Qualification Framework (EQF).

When you partake in and complete this programme, you are a student and graduate of Code Institute and not a student or graduate of the University of the West of Scotland.

Do I get a certificate for finishing the course?

Yes. Code Institute offers a Diploma in Full-Stack Software Development. This is a digital certificate.

Application Process
How do I apply for the programme?

You can apply to the programme by completing this form: https://codeinstitute.net/global/apply/

I’ve never worked in Tech before, can I apply?

Yes. This programme was designed to take complete beginners to world class junior software developers. Most of our students did not have an IT background before doing the course.

What is the criteria for admission?

Students must be over 18 years of age. All applicants should complete our 5 Day or All Access Coding Challenge. This programme is offered in the English language only, and applicants may be asked to complete an IELTS level 6 English test before they are accepted on the programme.

How long is the application process?

The application process does not take longer than 48 hours. This does not include the time it takes to complete the 5 Day or All Access Coding Challenge.

Is there a visa requirement for this programme?

No. This programme is 100% online. Students can do it from the comfort of their own home or wherever they have a computer and internet.

What is the price of the programme?

The Full-Stack Software Development programme costs €7,995. Finance options are available.

Why is the 5 Day Coding Challenge important for application?

The free 5 Day Coding Challenge is important for many reasons. Code Institute aims to help students change career to software development. Students must complete the challenge to show that they have an aptitude for coding. The challenge also shows potential students how they will learn on the programme.

Is there an age requirement?

Yes. All students must be at least 18 years old when they start the programme.

Is there a minimum English language requirement?

Yes. Our programme is delivered entirely in the English language. Therefore, an Education Advisor may ask you to complete an IELTS level 6 English test. Because this programme is entirely in English, we do not want students to be disadvantaged because their English is not at the same level as the course.

I have no background in technology. Can I do this course?

Yes. Code Institute’s Full-Stack Software Development programme is designed to take students from zero experience to a world-class junior software developer. However, we require that a student complete the 5 Day Coding Challenge before applying to the programme.

Course & Teaching Approach
How long do I have to complete the programme?

This is a 52-week programme and must be completed in that timeframe. We recommend that students spend at least 12 hours per week on the course. If you wish to complete the programme in less time, this is entirely possible. The more time you spend on this programme, the faster you finish the course.

Are there exams on the programme?

No. There are no exams in this programme. Students are assessed based on five projects that they must complete throughout the course. Each one of these projects makes up a student’s portfolio. This portfolio is beneficial for landing your first tech role. You will have the experience to show to potential employers.

What is career support?

Code Institute aims to get you a job in tech. To do this, we have gathered a fantastic career services team. Their role is to get you a tech job after you finish the programme. At present, 98% of Code Institute graduates are employed within 1 year of graduating. A lot of this success comes from the assistance of our careers team. Our careers team will help you with;

What is mentor support?

Individual mentors are available to offer one-on-one support to our students as they work on their projects. Our mentors are professionals who have years of experience in the tech industry. They are not employed directly by Code Institute. They offer best-practice advice to students on their projects. They know what tech employers want to see.

What is community support?

Code Institute has a community made up of thousands of students and graduates. Our students and alumni can work together and speak to each other daily. We use our Slack channels to allow our community to stay in touch with each other. We regularly hold webinars, hackathons, and more to promote the growth of this community. Remember, everyone in this programme is going through the same course.

What is Student Care?

Student Care is usually the first point of contact for students when they start the Code Institute programme. They will help get you on the right track when it comes to scheduling and more.

Is this 100% online?

We have also created our analytics system that tracks each student’s journey. This system alerts our teams if a student struggles in a particular area. It allows us to help with human support.

What type of computer do I need?

Most computers are perfect for this programme. A good measure is, if you have no problem doing the 5 Day Coding Challenge – then you should be fine. However, we recommend that the computer has at least 4Gb RAM – 8Gb RAM is even better.

Do I need to be good at maths to complete this programme?

No. The primary skills you will need to succeed are problem-solving.
