Join Australia's original coding bootcamp!
Coders are no longer seen as a thing of the future! They are the NOW. They walk among us as artists, business owners, tradespeople, sportspeople, gamers and even parents!
At Coder Academy we’re proud of our diverse mix of students. A collective of change-makers and trailblazers - coding their way to a more enlivened and enriched future.

How you study
The online learning environment.
We know that no two coders are alike. Our bootcamps allow you to choose an option that makes it easy to fit learning into your lifestyle.
Choose from our 6 month accelerated bootcamp or our 10 month bootcamp.
Join Live Classes via our online learning platform, Canvas, for all your learning resources (video, audio, real-time presentation sharing) as well as collaborative features such as a live whiteboard, breakout rooms, discussion boards and polling. Just like a face-to-face bootcamp, you can interact with your educator and classmates in real-time.
Each Live Class is delivered by an experienced educator and supported by an in-class Academic Mentor. You have access to more academic support too; either on-campus at our Support Hubs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Mon-Fri (9am - 5pm) or online via Discord Mon-Sat (9am - 5pm).
You can do your Facilitated Self-Study at a time that is convenient to you, however, we recommended you aim to do some of it when we are standing by to support you.

DIVERSITY IN TECH SCHOLARSHIP
At Coder Academy, we’re passionate about looking for ways we can encourage diversity in the tech sector. With so few women and minority groups choosing computer science subjects and degrees, there is a strong need for confidence building via mentorship, role models, and an educational opportunity that translates into real world experience.
To combat the lack of diversity in technology, Coder Academy is proud to offer three Diversity In Tech Scholarships per intake of our standard and accelerated Bootcamps. The scholarship will cover 50% of the total course fees of $20,970. Scholarships will be judged on a creative submission, and finalists will be determined following an interview. Scholarship application deadline is 14 days prior to course start date.
