Frequently asked questionsHere you'll find the answer to all your questions on the course.
How much does the course cost?
The course costs £ 12,400 if you take advantage of Boolean's Future Earnings Agreement: pay a small deposit to secure your place on the course and don't pay anything until you find a job. If you prefer to avoid financing options you can pay everything upfront for a discounted total of £ 9,400 or split your upfront payment for a discounted total of £ 9,900 and spread the cost over 9 months. Full information on our price and financing options is available on this page.
How long is the course and how much time do I have to dedicate?
The course lasts for 6 months and is full-time. That means you'll be in lessons every morning and working on practical exercises and projects every afternoon, Monday-Friday, for 6 months from the start date. You will not be able to dedicate sufficient time to this if you also have other work or study commitments.
What will I learn?
How big are the classes?
On average the classes are between 25 and 35 students, with three teachers assigned to each class.
Am I allowed to take holidays or time off?
Live teaching and interaction with instructors and classmates is fundamental to your success as a learner at Boolean. You must do everything you can to attend all lessons. In addition, to be eligible for the Money Back guarantee, you'll need to attend 90% of lessons. However, we understand that life happens, and so if something comes up that prevents you from attending a lesson, you'll be able to access the lesson recording to catch up.
What are the requirements for the course?
In terms of who should apply, our only requirements are that you're over 18, you have good English language skills, and that you have the passion, motivation, and drive to work hard and the desire to become a software engineer. You don't need to have a degree or any qualifications, and any previous coding experience is a bonus but not required. In terms of equipment, you'll need a laptop with webcam and microphone, and a stable internet connection, and a place to work from. A second monitor, separate keyboard/mouse and ergonomic chair can all improve your comfort while coding but are not essential.
How do I apply? What's the process?
Click the "Apply now" button on our website to start the admissions process. Once you've filled in the application form, you'll be able to book a 30 min video interview with our Admissions Manager. Prepare to talk about why you want to become a developer, and bring your questions about Boolean! If you're successful at interview, we'll ask you to pass a short ~20 min logic test to demonstrate problem solving skills required for the course.
Will I definitely be hired?
As shown by many studies, software engineering is one of the most in-demand skills in the UK. Boolean provides you with all the competencies that companies require for you to be able to do this job well. As well as training you to our best ability as Software Engineers, we'll also help you during your job search and put your profile on our platform for all our hiring partners to see. Ultimately, though, it's down to you and how much hard work and effort you put into learning to code, and looking for jobs.
Once the course is finished, will I be supported during my job search?
Of course! We'll be by your side during the whole job search: you'll be able to do practice job interviews, we'll help you optimise your CV and digital profile, and we'll help you improve your job searching process. In addition, you'll also have your profile visible on our Hiring Platform which we'll present to the many hiring partners that work with us. Remember: your success is ours!
What type of certificate will I get?
How long does it take to get a job after the course?
That depends from person to person, for some it can take days, for others it can take weeks or months. The average for Boolean students is 2-3 months, although external factors (such as the pandemic) can impact this time. Our Money Back guarantee states that if you've tried hard to find a job and haven't found one after 6 months, you'll get a full refund of the course fees.
