- A Worthwhile Journey- 12/1/2020Adrian Havenga-Bennett • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubBack in January 2019, I stumbled upon Code Institute's 5-day coding challenge and thought why not? I was heavily into the idea of C++ game development at the time and was pursuing that. But coding and programming was really what I wanted to do, and I didn't much mind what I was creating; creation itself and the method of doing so was what inspired me. The coding challenge was a lot of fun and honestly a nice and, importantly, accurate preview on the flow of the instruction and using the LMS. I was hooked.
Fast forward boring financial stuff.
Days later, I was chatting to Student Care (great team, by the way - they come back later in the story), about what my goals were and setting out a plan with me. Very supportive and genuine. I felt their duty of care immediately. So, I basically got stuck into the first module. I won't go into too much detail here about each module or the content within it. I will, however, say that you'll learn the fundamentals of programming (not language specific), which will stay with you. More on this later (unless you've already rolled your eyes at my cumbersome review and haven't made it this far. That's OK. To those staying with me, I thank you. At least you'll know this is a real review. I mean, who would invest this much time writing a fake one? Seems silly. But I digress!).
Working full-time and studying part-time around a family, which included wife, 3-year-old son, and an infant daughter, was no easy feat. It was taxing, to say the least. And the dreadful Tax Man took up Father Time's job for the duration of the course. Mind you, Father Time just does his job and gets on with it. We don't like it but it is what it is. The Tax Man was stealing time from me. Once again, I digress.
My full schedule meant that I was unable to stay within the confines of the initial course deadline (not making excuses here, I was just not that great at juggling busy home and professional life with study life). But fear not, dear student, Student Care to the rescue! After a very convenient email exchange... voila, time extended and stress levels returned to... well, still high but certainly not looming-deadline-and-large-amount-of-work-still-to-do high!
All throughout the course, I made good use of every avenue that could lead me to a solution to a problem I may have been facing. And, thankfully, Code Institute offers a good amount of them. From Slack, to Tutors, to a Mentor, you’re never far from someone offering to help you (heck, I still scan Slack in the hopes that someone has asked a question, only to be disappointed that someone else got there before me. They’re too fast on there! Or perhaps I “slack” off too much. Sorry, it was right there.
I shall sign off this novella with a good luck to anyone either already taking this course or considering it. As the title says, it’s well worth the journey and I have successfully changed careers a mere couple of months after receiving my diploma. The tech stack I’ll be using isn’t what I learned with Code Institute, but do you recall a few chapters ago when I mentioned learning non-language-specific fundamentals? Well, what I learned from Code Institute inspired confidence in my future employer, who were certain I’d be able to pick up their stack in my stride. And you know what? They were 100% on that.
- MPia Kuti • Graduate • Course: Full-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubAs a total beginner in programming, I have enjoyed every bit of the course:
> from the very clear, detailed and useful lessons,
> to the coding challenges which did make me struggle a lot and learnt so much
> to the practical projects where we learn to build different websites from scratch with the languages already learnt
> to the Slack amazing support and friendliness.
But most importantly, I had a great mentor who encouraged me to manage my milestone projects by breaking down all the tasks, guided me to the right resources and gave solid and concrete feedback which helped me to achieve great scores!
Now, as I am looking for a job, the careers team are also helping me and providing super rich webinars along with tech companies. And I have now a very nice and detailed portfolio to share with my CV!
Not sure what else can Code Institute do more, already pretty amazing!

- Stay away- 11/14/2020Michael G. • Student • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInThe support always answer in the same way, they don't listen and they let information slip, vital at that one to.
Not so much student care when they just repeat same message and not listening, no student caring at all.
They really don't care about you, they will press you, hunt you like crazy for the money.
This is a band of burglars salesman rather than a institute or school.
You can use their slack, support, or your mentor, but everything is so slow, takes days at worse for a response, yeah sure, time difference, but I'm a student, I need to be taken cared of and not abbadoned in the code jungle.
They don't pay attention to your private life or any thing that could happen.
You can get an extension if you're near death for free at best, otherwise pay up for the whole course sum again.
Screw these guys, they fake most of their stuff, they put a lot into marketing and no support or care at all.
You're better of studying on your own and use free lessons/tools.

And there are few more technologies on the way. The great thing is , there is 7 Days tutor support available, and they are always helpful if you are stuck at any task or code review. I was also assigned to my Mentor who would advise me on completing compulsory 4 Milestone Projects on 3 stages or on demand whenever you need to connect for help. There is great community on Slack and help is available almost 24 hours. You learn a lot from other student's experience. Career support has advised me how to target job search and helped me to make a tailored CV, Cover letter and LinkedIn Profile. Overall i was very happy and delighted to complete my course. Please feel free to checkout my portfolio website and some of the projects .Thank You https://asifrana.ie/
- Fullstack Development Diploma- 7/23/2020Sophie Wickham • Freelance Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInOutstanding course - Diploma in Software Development, covers everything you would need to begin a career in coding, which is actually very hard to do, and involves learning a hell of a lot of new skills. The Code Institute manages to fit everything in whilst giving you amazing support. Thank you sooo much to the tutors, you wouldn't be able to do it without them, literally there at all times, and insanely clever, you will always sort out your problem and learn a lot at the same time. I finished the course in May and have already started working freelance. One of few courses you gain this much practical experience, and a credit-rated qualification if stick to your deadlines (like you would in the job) and listen to your mentor/tutors and Slack community. Another kudos is they let you stay on the Slack community once you have graduated, networking is very important and the support is priceless. Thanks very much, it's been great!DeleteShare
- Software Development Part Time Course- 6/11/2020Terence Logue • Graduate • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubCode Institute's website is easy to navigate around which I was pleased with. The tutors were very helpful with technical questions even when helping other students. My mentors were great at helping with projects and gave me their experiences of coding. Student care influenced me to join here and made it easy for me to begin.
Criteria which I learnt was modern and beneficial as I continue to study deeper into the technologies which I learnt here.
Personally, I would recommend Code Institute as it teaches the latest technologies and the support I got was fantastic and beneficial. I enjoyed creating projects and getting feedback from other students to help improve my work. I have no regrets by joining Code Institute and it's opened up a lot of doors for me in the future!
- Wasted money- 5/31/2020Peter • Student • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubAbsolutely terrible. Do not pay so much money for a course unless you are some kind of gifted student in the field, as there is no help if you struggle with the content! You really are on your own.

- Full Stack Web Development- 5/10/2020Geert van Kaathoven • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubI got in contact with Code Institute when I went to one of the open evenings in Amsterdam. Soon after this I decided to join and start on my career change.
The course itself is divided in different modules and along the way you do 4 milestone projects. Which you can showcase on your portfolio along the way.
If you are stuck you always can ask you question to the tutor support. And they will guide you in the right direction. Or there is the slack community with all the current and past students answering question. As you start on each milestone you get a assigned a mentor that will help you along the way.
Code Institute does also have hackathons to take part in(ex: Easter, Halloween, Christmas) to get the feel of working in teams/sprints.
After your graduated you still be part of a great community!

- Diploma in Full Stack Software Development- 5/1/2020Les • Graduate • Course: Part-Time: Diploma in Software Development • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubI found this to be a fantastic course and an excellent challenging experience. Coming from a sales background with little to no knoweldge of coding I found it significantly challenging. Luckily the support that is offered reallys helps you and it does it in a way that lets you find the answer yourself without just providing it straight up. The support tools include a mentor assigned to you for the whole duration, who was excellent, basically a 24/7 tutoring team, who were also excellent, an awesome slack community that includes students going through the same course with channels specific to the stage you are at and a general student care team who check in with you regularly to ensure everything is ok and on track. And again everyone who I dealt with whether it was student or staff couldnt be more helpful. Dont get me wrong there are times when my head was completely melted from trying to grasp the concepts, and as you dig deeper you realise that there is so much to learn and it can sometimes be overwhelming, but if you stick at it and leverage the help at hand then you can do well. Dont underestimate the time you need to set aside too, the course assessment is based on four milestone projects that are designed to implement your learnings along the way and get progressively more advanced as each new concept is integrated, with the culmination reaching a project needing the full stack suite of skills and tools to complete successfully. Now freshly finished I do feel like I have come along way, however, I would say that whilst I have a broad new skillset, I do have the desire to practise practise practise to become much more proficient and polished in each new skill I have, to get to the standard that I am pursuing, but that might be just my personality. The fact I could only study part time (about 15-20hrs per week) might also mean feel I need to do more in my own time now. You could easily give this course 40 hours plus per week with all the areas that it covers if you have the time and the desire to go deeper into it. Overall, I highly recommend it and it does get you job ready if you are accountable and disciplined. I am now about to see what the job assistance process is like so as this stage I am assuming it also a good process based on the other areas of the course.
