How do I apply?

  1. Submit your expression of interest and join our online community

    Please submit an expression of interest to get invited to our Slack workspace, events, workshops and meetups for prospective students.

    Submit Expression of Interest

    Introduce yourself in our Slack workspace where you can find the most up-to-date information on our programme, meetups, and ask us any questions you may have.

  2. Start work on our course prerequisites

    Before we can consider your application, you will need to complete our course prerequisites. We encourage applicants to take as much time as they need to work through the material and to support each other during the preparation process, both online and through our meetups.

    Please read our course prerequisites carefully before planning when to apply.

  3. Submit an application

    Plan to spend about an hour completing the application form.

    If you submit your application before the deadline, keep working on the prerequisites and tidying up your website. We will evaluate your progress as of the date the window closes.

  4. The conversational interview

    We invite a minimum of 24 people to interview (in person or remotely), and offer places to sixteen people per cohort. You’ll be interviewed by a panel of Founders and Coders staff and alumni.
