Frequently Asked Questions

micdeg accreditation

I don’t have any background in coding, IT, or computer science. Can I still take your courses?

Sure you can. Many of our 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, our 6-month, part-time bootcamps are designed to help you achieve that.

We offer three specialized bootcamps, which help you transition from beginner to job ready:

  1. The Full Stack Web Developer bootcamp enables you to build dynamic, database-driven sites.
  2. The Mobile Developer bootcamp, co-created with Google, helps you become an Android developer and prepares you for the Google Associate Android Developer Certification exam.
  3. The Software Engineer bootcamp goes beyond coding and teaches you how to construct software in various programming languages to solve specific business problems.

To enrol with us, you don’t need to have a degree or prior technical background - with the personalized mentor support we provide, 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 your courses are online?

Our students don't need access to the Internet everyday. Our course delivery is designed so that you can download the course material and work on your tasks off-line. 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 right away.

What is a bootcamp? What kind of bootcamps do you offer?

HyperionDev bootcamps are structured, part-time 6-month programs with progressive levels of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Our bootcamps are designed to follow the learning path towards becoming a professional developer.

The Full Stack Web Developer bootcamp introduces the learner to web development essentials before teaching the technical specifics of building feature-rich web applications. To complete the learning path, you will focus on using frameworks to develop fully functional web applications.

The Mobile Developer bootcamp begins by teaching you programming essentials in Java before delving into advanced Java, and working with Android Studio. You will then move ahead to more advanced concepts including the implementation of the Android framework. By the time you complete the bootcamp, you’ll be ready to take Google’s exam to become an Associate Android Developer.

The Software Engineer bootcamp takes you beyond coding to teach you how to think like a software engineer. You will construct software in various programming languages to solve specific business problems.

If you are undecided about which bootcamp best fits your learning requirements and career goals, just drop us a line and one of our mentors will schedule a call with you.

How is a bootcamp different from a short course?

Bootcamps are structured, 6-month programs with progressive levels of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Our Web, Mobile and Software Development bootcamps aim to impart a comprehensive understanding in the domain you choose, as well as coding skills. They are ideal for those wanting to switch careers or become professional developers, because they cover the full learning path required for these careers.

A short course is a 3-month program. It is more focused on a specific domain and skill level. For example, our C# Programming Essentials short course is a comprehensive introduction to C#, while Introduction to Data Science is an advanced course that delves into data analysis and machine learning. Short courses are perfect for people who want to upskill in a specific area.

How likely am I to get employed as a programmer after taking a bootcamp?

93% of our graduates get placed in the tech industry within 150 days of completing a course with us. We aim to secure placement in your new career within 6 months of graduating from one of our bootcamps.

To accomplish this, we provide placement support and guidance during and after the course you take with us. This includes helping you with interview preparation, reviewing your CV and portfolio, directly referring you to our hiring partners, helping you network within the tech community, and facilitating internships at select partner organisations. Hyperion students have access to exclusive job listings and an up-to-date career platform - Hyperion Careers.

The demand for software developers has never been higher and our graduates have gone on to work as software developers. Read some of their success stories here.

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

We recommend devoting an average of 8 hours per week to complete a short course within 3 months, or a bootcamp within 6 months. However, our courses are set up in an extremely flexible way. If you find yourself running out of time, you can extend your course time by purchasing additional months of mentor support and access to the training material. 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.

Can I get a free trial on one of your courses?

Yes, you can get access to a free trial on all our bootcamps. Simply register for an account and explore all the material and tasks offered in the free trial. This allows you to start coding and evaluate whether a specific bootcamp will match your needs. Although you won’t receive the full mentor support experience on the trial, you can sample the course material and you will be given opportunities to undertake some coding tasks.
