Government Funded Places

As part of the Governments "Skills for Life" programme, we can offer both our Software Development and Data Engineering bootcamps, fully funded by the Department for Education.
To qualify for the Scholarship, you must be:

  • Aged 19+
  • Either in work, self-employed, recently unemployed or returning to work after a break
  • Live in England, and have been living in the UK for at least the last 3 years

    Awarding of fully funded places will be based on how you perform during the application process and Entry Challenge.
    If your application is successful, you will join our bootcamp with no fees or hidden costs to pay. 
    Please keep in mind that you will need to have your own laptop in order to complete the course and will need to pass our Entry Challenge as part of the application process.

Deferred

Pay your 12-Week Bootcamp Fee over 22-24 months, interest-free.

  • You'll pay a £250 deposit towards your 13-Week Bootcamp Fee.
  • Then, you'll pay £250 each month until the balance is paid in full, starting after you begin the course. This option is interest free.
  • You must be a UK citizen to qualify – we require this because we work with an FCA-regulated approved partner who help us deliver this payment option.
  • This scheme is subject to affordability checks, conducted by an FCA-regulated approved partner.
  • If we're unable to offer you our Deferred payment plan, you can still join Northcoders by using our Advance payment option, or a Finance option
  • To qualify for this payment method, you must complete your Entry Challenge and sign up to the course at least two weeks before your start date.
  • You'll need to pay a £950 Introduction Week payment after being accepted onto the course via your Entry Challenge.

This plan is facilitated by <EdAid>, an FCA-regulated and approved partner, and is subject to affordability checks. 

Advance

Pay less by completing your Entry Challenge and signing up to Northcoders at least two weeks in advance and qualify for a £500 Scholarship.

  • The total you will pay is £8000, including the Introduction Week fee and 12-Week Bootcamp Fee.
  • You must complete your Entry Challenge and sign-up at least two weeks before your start date in order to qualify.

Income Sharing Agreement Scheme

Pay a £150 deposit and only begin repaying your tuition fees once you are in a job earning over £24,000.

  • You will repay 11% of your monthly salary.
  • ISA’s are not classed as personal debt, they always stay affordable and repayments are paused if your income drops below £24,000.
  • 36-month repayment term, 8 year maximum term from the end of the course.
  • Maximum repayment cap of 200%.

Only repay when your income is at or above the minimum income threshold and only repay what you can afford.

Shared Income Agreements are a flexible financing option that adapts to your income. Repayments only take place if your income is equal to or above the minimum income threshold detailed in your contract. Also, there is a maximum amount that you could pay, in case of higher salaries, but you will never pay more than that maximum payment cap.

StudentFinance evaluates your application based on your potential to succeed, not only on your current financial situation. They also provide resources and support to help you launch your new career.
