WHAT MAKES MICROVERSE DIFFERENT?

We believe that learning should be accessible to everyone. And we know that learning is not just about access to knowledge. It’s about support. Our methodology uses remote collaborative learning so people from all around the world can learn together while supporting each other.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What’s the difference between the Fast Track and the Full Program?

    The Fast Track program is aimed for people who already have some experience coding and it's focused on giving students the opportunity to work on real world projects and get experience working as part of a professional team.

    The Full Program, on the other hand, is designed for people with no prior experience developing software. We will take you from zero to being able to land your first job as a software developer.

  • Our programs don't have any kind of upfront cost. You will only pay if you get a job after completing one of our program. We believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to become a software developer and our financial model reflects that.

    If you get a job as a software developer after completing the Fast Track program, we will charge you 10% of your monthly salary until you pay $7,500.

    If you get a job as a software developer after completing the Full program, we will charge you 15% of your monthly salary until you pay $15,000.

  • The Fast Track program lasts 4 months. The Full Program lasts 12 months.

    You should also be prepared to dedicate a few more months after completing the program to apply to jobs.

    Both programs are full time programs and require you to attend Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

  • Both programs have an application process that you need to complete before you can get accepted.

    The Full Program doesn't have any technical or educational requirement, although it's recommended that you complete the "Introduction to JavaScript" course in Codecademy first.

    The Fast Track program requires that you have at least 3 months of experience learning to code full time or equivalent (e.g. 6 months learning 20 hours a week).

    Both programs heave some other basic requirements listed below:

       - You need to be proficient in spoken and written English
       - You need to have access to a high-speed and stable Internet connection 24 hours a day
       - You need to own a computer with a microphone
       - You need to enjoy spending time building, learning and working with other people
       - You need to be available to join the program full time, Mon - Fri / 8am - 5pm.

  • Start the application process here.

  • The application process for the Fast Track program is currently open and we only have a few spots left for the next batch. The sooner you apply, the more likely you will be selected. We onboard a new batch of students every month.

    We currently don't have any spot available for the Full Program, but you can click here and we will let you know once the program's application opens.

  • Our methodology uses collaboration as the main support mechanism. That means you will spend most of your time in the program working with other students on real world projects. It's like running or going to the gym: if it is just you, it's really easy to feel unmotivated, but if you have someone else holding you accountable, there is no better support than that.

    Collaborative learning also makes you less likely to get stuck and feel frustrated. There is a Swedish proverb that says: "Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half sorrow".

    Also, by learning through collaboration, you not only learn how to code, but also how to be a great team player, mentor and communicator, skills that are very appreciated in the professional world

    On top of that, you and your coding partner will get a mentor assigned. Your mentor will help you throughout the program to be able to scope and design the projects.

  • Yes. Currently, both the Fast Track program and the Full Program require you to participate full time, Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm in your local time.

    We will launch a part-time program later on in the year.

  • The goal of both of our programs is to take you to a point where you will be able to get your first job as a software developer.

    In the Fast Track program, we will focus on giving you experience working with real world projects. You and your coding partner will spend most of your time working on freelance projects, contributing to open source projects and building some complex personal projects.

    On top of that, we will give you some really strong foundations in computer science and interview prep to make sure you can pass any job interview. Finally, we will make sure that you are comfortable working with some technologies that will make you hirable: JavaScript/React, Ruby and Ruby on Rails, and Node.js.

    The Full Program covers everything included in the Fast Track program, but it will also teach you the foundations of software development. You will spend most of your time working on deeply understanding how to think and work as a software developer and building projects in an environment that imitates the real world.

  • There are three main things that make Microverse unique:

        1. No upfront cost: We offer the only remote training program for software developers in the world that doesn't charge any kind of upfront cost. You will only pay Microverse if you get a job as a software developer after finishing the program.

        2. Worldwide available: We believe that education should be accessible to everyone, and we have designed our programs so anyone can join regardless of where they live.

        3. Collaborative: Microverse not only uses collaboration to keep its students motivated and accountable, but also to help you develop the team work skills necessary to succeed as a software developer in any company in the world.

  • You don't need experience to join the Full Program, but you need at least 3 months of experience learning to code full time in order to join the Fast Track program.

  • Yes, we believe that education should be accessible to everyone. Our programs are completely remote and don't have any kind of upfront cost.
