Learn the skills you need to become a Java Developer

Our latest bootcamp is tailored for one of today's most vital tech skills - Java development. As the tech landscape evolves, Java continues to be one of the most in demand languages in software development, as well as being highly valued across various industries

Unlike our JavaScript focused Software Development bootcamp where you learn to build web applications using React and Node.js, or our Data Engineering bootcamp which deals specifically with processing large datasets, the Java Development Bootcamp enables you to create full-stack web applications with a special focus on Java, including native mobile apps on Android.

Created for beginners, the Java Developer course includes core Java fundamentals, back-end web development using Spring Boot, and front-end web development essentials. Additionally, the course covers mobile app development on Android using Java, equipping students with a diverse range of skills.

Meticulously designed in partnership with businesses that hire Junior Java Developers, the course equips you with the essential skills, support, and guidance to launch your career as a junior Java developer.

The application process takes 2-3 weeks and we would advise you to apply sooner rather than later to give yourself plenty of time to work through the preparation materials.

  • How many contact hours will I get?

    You'll get a whopping 480 contact hours while you're at Northcoders. That's what you will need to fully prepare you for a career in tech.

  • Will I get a mentor?

    Yes, you will have a dedicated mentor for each part of the course.

  • How much experience do I need?

    None. You can apply to our bootcamps with no prior experience (although you might enjoy getting started prior to application!) If you've never coded before, we will help you get started and help you discover whether it is right for you before you commit to the course, and support you every step of the way.

  • Do I need any qualifications to do this course? 

    No. We're far more interested in what you want to achieve. This course is designed for people from any and all walks of life who are interested in starting a new career in tech, regardless of what you have done before.

  • How do I get a place on the course?

    First, you’ll need to apply. You can’t miss the big red ‘Apply Now’ button on this website! The application itself is simple. We’ll ask you to tell us a little about yourself and you’ll be able to choose which bootcamp you want to do. If you’re not sure if Northcoders is right for you yet, that’s fine! There’s no commitment to joining us at this stage, it’s completely free to apply.

    You’ll then receive an email inviting you to register on our Learn To Code platform. On there, you’ll see a step-by-step guide on how to get onto the bootcamp with direct links to all your learning materials. They’re designed to be fun and are suitable for people who have never coded before. We’ll be there throughout the process to support you and help you decide whether you want to join our bootcamp. Once you’ve completed most of the learning materials, we’ll send you a link to book your Entry Challenge.

    The Entry Challenge is a short series of coding problems. You’ll have 60 minutes to solve as many as you can. You’ll then have a quick Zoom call with one of our tutors so they can ask you a few questions about your code and to give you the opportunity to explain how you approached the problems. It’s designed to test your knowledge of the preparation materials and your natural aptitude. We’re also looking to see if you share our passion for coding!

  • Do you offer part-time courses?

    We don't currently offer any part-time or flexi-time courses. All Northcoders bootcamps are delivered on a full-time basis with students expected to be available from 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, for the 13 week duration of the course.
