    Highly Recommend

    After 5 years working in Civil Engineering I decided it was time for a career change. I did some research on Software Engineering bootcamps in the North West area and ultimately landed on Manchester Codes. The course was structured very intuitively from start to finish and their online learning platform made it a very enjoyable experience. The sessions run by the Manchester Codes tutors were very informative and allowed an opportunity to raise any problems you were facing with your progr...

    BOOTCAMP

    I jumped on the bootcamp as a way to learn software development for my current role, but by the end of the bootcamp I had got a job working for an Agency in Manchester. Since then I've moved on and havent looked back. The in-class support through to the career advice was great.

    The bootcamp content was awesome, it started off with a great foundation everything explained fully with examples. Then when moving onto more advanced topics our cohort would mob, or pair on problems to fur...

    Great Bootcamp!

    My experience with Manchester Codes was nothing but positive.

    The bootcamp provided a great overview of web development fundamentals that led into covering backend and database concepts and frontend frameworks (React) which ended with a final team project that pulled it all together.

    In my experience, the instructors were fantastic and always willing to help. Additionally, there were course tutors that could also be called upon for those needing any extra assistance.

    Enjoyable and Unforgettable experience in life

    I spent very enjoyable 8 months with all my classmates and Manchester Codes’ tutors. The curriculum is very well designed, which taught us all the essential skills developers need. The tech and learning skill we got from taking the course are highly transferable to adapt into any working environment.

    Helped give me the relevant skills to get the job I wanted

    I decided to study with Manchester Codes as I was looking to return to a developer role after a career break. I’d lost a lot of confidence and was looking to update my skills.

    My 6 months at Manchester Codes have been intense – although there are only 6 hours of scheduled lessons per week, the bulk of the assignments and learning is carried out outside of the classroom. It’s demanding and I’d recommend putting any social life/hobbies/parenting(!) on hold as much as possible for th...

    Fantastic course that led to a successful career change

    I took the Software Engineering bootcamp course at Manchester Codes, graduating in March 2021. I loved the hands-on, practical nature of the course. I felt like we were taught how to code using the most up-to-date, industry-recognised languages and technologies such as NodeJs. The projects and coding exercises were great for getting hands on keyboards and building actual things that could then be added to a portfolio and shown to potential employers. 

    The remote nature of the cour...

    Life Changer

    After spending 12 years as a general manager in hospitality I wanted to pursue a career in tech, something I had wanted to do since leaving school. I had completed the free course they offer a few times over the years, but hadn’t taken the plunge until now, and so glad that I did.

    I was completely new to coding, other than a brief into to C++ in college (about 2 weeks worth) and had reservations about how quickly I could learn the skills to change career.

    Everything I had hoped for!

    I would gladly recommend Manchester Codes to anyone considering a career change into software engineering.

    Completing a boot camp was a decision I considered and weighed for a long time before finally pulling the trigger. I was concerned about the viability of switching careers with no prior experience and whether a boot camp could realistically prepare you/ultimately help get you a job in the industry. I can safely say that my experience with Manchester Codes was everything I cou...

    Great Course, Greater People

    Great course ran by people who care about your time on the course, your progress, and helping to find you a job after. I went from a very different career into software/web development, and thanks to throwing myself deeply I found a job just before completing it. I made good friends from my cohort, and it is lovely to be part of a thriving community. Fully recommend to anyone looking to enter coding as a career.

    Kickstart to my career in Tech

    It's been a few months since I finished Manchester Codes and it's safe to say I would not be securing a Front End Engineer role now, when I didn't even know the basics less than a year ago without Manchester Codes.
    I was looking for a bootcamp that I would be able to manage along side my busy full time job and MC stood out for me more than other schools due to all their success stories, as well as them making a conscious effort to make the course more accessible for under-represented ...
