FAQs

I don’t have any background in coding, IT, or computer science. Can I still apply for the software engineering bootcamp programme?

Sure you can. Many students successfully switch careers to programming after taking our courses, even if they were absolutely new to programming when starting out.

If your aim is to change careers, full or part-time bootcamps are designed to help you achieve that.
To enrol, you don’t need to have a degree or prior technical background - all you need is discipline, persistence, and a willingness to work hard and learn to code.

I don’t have regular access to the internet. Would that be a problem as all of your courses are online?

Students don't need access to the internet every day. Our course delivery is designed so that you can download the course material and work on your tasks offline. Once you are connected to the internet, all the work in your folder automatically gets synchronised with your mentor, who will be notified immediately and will provide feedback within 48 hours.

Will I receive a certificate after I complete the bootcamp?

Upon completion of the bootcamp programme, a certificate of completion may be issued in the name of HyperionDev and Stellenbosch University. This certificate is neither a formal, accredited programme nor a course of Stellenbosch University, and will not provide access to or recognition of learning for such programmes or courses. 

How much time do I need to commit to complete one of your bootcamps?

We recommend devoting an average of eight hours per week to complete a bootcamp within three to six months. However, our courses are made to be flexible enough to suit your learning needs and goals. If you are running out of time, you can extend your course period. This means you can take as long as you need to complete the course and gain the certificate, as well as the confidence to become a developer.
