While we teach in JavaScript, our tutors are experts in a range of languages. We teach in a way that makes learning new languages natural. Three in four Northcoders graduates code in a language other than JavaScript.

Learn to code around your commitments

We’ve created our part-time course to be as flexible as possible. The total length is 30 weeks with a minimum of 3.5 hours of contact time and a recommended 8 hours of self study time each week.


There are lots of opportunities to catch up with recorded lectures when it suits you and we've got lots of 1-2-1 slots available with your mentor to discuss your course progression, address any coding challenges, or seek general assistance.


Here are two examples of how some people have managed to fit the course in around their commitments. If you'd like to discuss how you can combine these with your current commitments then book a slot with one of our onboarding team here.

We've designed the part-time timetable to be as flexible as possible for people with commitments during both daytime and evening hours.

Live lectures, lasting one hour, are held twice a week and attendance is mandatory. However, we do record these sessions, enabling you to catch up at a later time.

Live seminars, also one hour in duration, occur twice weekly. These sessions are not recorded, so you will need to attend at least one live seminar.

Study Groups offer a chance to pose questions, share insights, and provide feedback on coding issues among peers. While attendance isn't compulsory, engaging with the challenges and solutions of others is a valuable learning tool for enhancing problem-solving skills.

One-to-one sessions with a mentor are available on an optional basis, allowing you to schedule a 30-minute slot to discuss your course progression, address any coding challenges, or seek general assistance.

Debugging support is provided as an optional feature in the timetable, where you can consult with tutors for assistance in troubleshooting your code.

Self-study periods are crucial for applying the knowledge acquired. We recommend spending a minimum of eight hours per week for this purpose.

Careers support is given to part-time students, including career support documents that we supply our full-time students, as well as access to our jobs board. Our jobs board includes jobs from our hiring partners across the UK.
