We operate a Your Learning Your Way model, meaning you can study in the classroom, remotely through our virtual learning environment or a hybrid of the two!

Our face to face learning takes place within a covid safe environment with reduced class sizes and a rotation of days studying within the class room and remotely to reduce contact with other persons within the learning environment.

The virtual learning format presents the opportunity for you to learn how to develop full stack using our innovative virtual learning platform from the comfort of your own home. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with fellow members of the Master coding course building projects sharing code in real time. Our instructors and specialist innovation developers will deliver industry leading learning and provide one to one support throughout your journey on the Master coding course.

Whilst we’re in a virtual world, you only need access to a broadband connection and a laptop with a webcam or camera

We designed our bootcamp model as an immersive and accelerated learning programme.

The format of learning over 12 weeks gives you 480 hours coding experience and the skills and capability to add value to an organisation as a Junior developer.

Develop: £999 exc VAT.

Master Course: £5999 exc VAT.

Funding, scholarships, bursaries and student loans are available. Contact our admissions team to see what’s available

We partner with three organisations; Future Finance, Lendwise and Knoma to give you options to access the course via a student loan.

Our admissions team are trained to provide independent advice and guidance and can talk through all funding and loan options available

The courses run every 4 weeks so you will be never too far away from an available course date when you wish to begin your coding journey.

Develop Courses – We have government funding for these courses for certain areas in the UK so they’re free to qualifying students.

Master course – We are part of the Governments digital bootcamp pilot and have funding at a regional level which means our courses are free in many places throughout the UK.

Apprenticeships – Training is free on the 15 month programme.

Book a call with an admissions advisor and they’ll be able to explain what’s available for you.

We teach our students how to learn how to code as well as teaching you to code. That means you’ll learn the key languages but be able to pick up others when you’ve left code nation.

On our courses you will learn, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Node.js, GIT.

It’s difficult to say and depends entirely on where you work and the employer. The range is wide but our average is £21.5k for those leaving our 12 week bootcamp.

We use a number of platforms to ensure an immersive experience is available to all learners with no single point of failure. Our infrastructure is cloud-based across Discord, Zoom, Slack, GitHub and Trello all being used seamlessly to deliver a consistent, industry-focused experience with the tools of education.

We have recently developed our Zoom classroom approach to enable learners to access separate virtual classrooms – to allow differing ability levels to be supported by Innovation Developers, addressing differing levels of support to complete tasks, understand concepts etc.

We believe anyone can code, so for most of our courses, there are no experience or educational qualification requirements.


86% of our learners have little or no coding experience before joining a Code Nation course.

There is not an entry exam for the Master coding course, our mantra is to promote inclusivity in accessing a career in tech and not placing barriers in the way of you aspiring to access a career in tech.

Although we have physical campuses in Manchester and Chester, we provide training through our virtual learning environment internationally.

Covid has had an impact on our physical space expansion but we are working on physical locations in Liverpool, Daresbury Science Park, Trafford, Leeds, Bristol and London through innovative partnerships with colleges, LEP’s and employers

The digital skills gap is getting bigger, there are reputed to be around 1m digital roles short in the UK, which means the demand for new coders is growing and so are the opportunities to start your career.

We work with over 250 employers who hire their coders directly from us. They shape what we teach on our courses and let us know what businesses look for from their new recruits.

It goes without saying that you’ll learn great tech skills with us – but you’ll also learn key business-ready skills like problem solving, communication and working in a team to prepare you to think like a professional.

Our team will work with you to create a great CV, set up a LinkedIn profile and perfect your interview technique. You’ll hear from our network of businesses who will tell you what it’s like to work as a professional coder and give you valuable insights into what’s happening in the sector.

You’ll be equipped with the technical and commercial skills that employers are looking for.
