Before you apply, we recommend giving some free online tutorials a go to see if programming is for you. Ambitious career changers: Looking for a new challenge? Most of our students are between the ages of 22 – 60 years old and come with previous career experience in sectors such as finance, education, engineering, retail and many more.
