I still can’t believe I started working as a software developer in less than a year after I started to learn coding. I have a lot to learn in this position and I’m definitely happy about that. Absolutely, it wouldn’t be possible without Re:Coded.

**“Transitioning from learning UX/UI design in the bootcamp to applying it in a real job has been a transformative journey for me. The skills and techniques I gained from the bootcamp have been crucial in comprehending and resolving user issues, making every day an opportunity to elevate my skills as a designer. In fact, my very first project directly led to me securing a full-time position. The bootcamp's extensive network and supportive community have proved to be an invaluable resource for me.

"I would love to have an engaging experience learning backend technologies and networking with people with similar passions and goals. I believe that by learning backend technologies and becoming a full-stack developer, it will open better job opportunities for me.

"I have always been drawn to the creative process. I believe that good design has the power to improve people's lives and make complex systems more accessible, and I am eager to continue learning and growing as a designer."

"I made small squares using the wet mud [in the garden], with just the right amount of water to keep it rigid. Then they turned into mud persons with personalities and their own chairs and cars and houses. That’s design. That is my most precious memory of knowing that upon aging, creativity and design were to become my sense of life."

I have come to discover that my preconceived thoughts of the job market are completely flawed. One of the, if not the most lacking skill I lack is software development.This is exactly the sort of skills and knowledge I need to boost my value and help me grow.

I am planning to be a full stack developer because I enjoy writing codes and to increase my opportunities in finding a job. I also would like to meet new people and join communities of programmers, share experiences and learn from them.

Who is this bootcamp ideal for?

Maybe you’re trying to learn on your own but struggle to tie it all together. Maybe you’ve studied something else but always wanted to upskill yourself in a creative field with great potential for the future. Or maybe you feel stuck in a job that takes you nowhere and has this sense that learning how to design might exactly be the challenge and accelerated reboot you need. Not to mention in an industry you know is shaping our world and your future. Well, this UX/UI design bootcamp is for you!


This is for people with a strong growth mindset who are aspiring to become UX/UI designers and would love to learn in an engaged and supportive community of like-minded people.

Is it really free?

Yes! Like every other program at Re:Coded we are kindly supported by our donors. In the application form, you will be able to see which donor is supporting your bootcamp.

Why should I apply to this bootcamp instead of learning on my own?

Learning on your own is great, and we love it ourselves. But a bootcamp gives you something else. Instead of browsing around to learn bits and pieces whenever you can find time for it, a bootcamp gives you structure and support to take a leap forward in no time. 

A Re:Coded bootcamp also gives you something else. We want to support your leadership and collaboration skills by teaching you the fundamental soft skills essential to employers when they're looking for people to join their team.

Often the community among students, support, and soft skills training are among the things our students point out as truly unique and valuable parts of our bootcamps.

Will I earn a certificate?

Yes, if you complete the curriculum, participate actively in the live online classes, finish your assignment and fulfill your commitment to your classmates, you will receive a Re:Coded certificate at the end of the bootcamp.

Will this bootcamp help me find a job?

While nothing is ever guaranteed, we had a job employment rate of over 85% for our graduates depending on the program. We know that there’s more to getting hired than having a great portfolio and technical knowledge, and our curriculum includes built-in career development, so you can enter the job market confident and prepared. Not to mention that our Career Services team will support you for 6 months to help you land the job of your dreams.

‍What is the class schedule like?

Our live online classes are typically spread out over two nights during the week and a half day on the weekend. The exact time of the classes will be shown in the application form.

Who are your typical applicants?

First of all, you need to fit our selection criteria (see above), but apart from that, we aim for 50% women in our bootcamp to help support gender diversity in tech, and we will prioritize those who are currently unemployed or underemployed. Our students often come from many different backgrounds, and some already have some creative elements in their history like architecture, design, graphic design, etc. But the bootcamp is designed for anyone to kick off a new career as UX/UI designer, so as long as you’re motivated to learn, you will have a chance to enter. We prioritize people who are un- or underemployed.

What does the selection process look like?

The selection process is highly competitive with hundreds of applicants for each bootcamp so it’s important you take the time to write a compelling application and explain why this is the right learning experience for you.

The application process is divided into three phases: the first phase is the application form where you get the opportunity to tell our team about yourself and explain your motivation to apply - it might take around 30-40 minutes to complete. 

If you meet the requirements of the bootcamp and you’ve submitted a great application, you’ll be sent a homework challenge to complete as well as a psychometric and logic test to measure your growth mindset, critical thinking skills, and level of perseverance. 

The final phase of the selection process is an interview with our admissions team to assess whether you’re the right fit for this course. 

In the end, we select between 35-70 people for a bootcamp depending on country and donor.

Why do you care so much about a student’s motivation to apply?

Going through a bootcamp is a big commitment. To your classmates, your trainers, and not least yourself. 

This bootcamp could be your ticket to advancing your career in the tech industry, but we won’t lie - there will be times when it’ll be tough. It’s a high-paced bootcamp experience, and you commit yourself to your classmates when collaborating on important projects.

We want to make sure we find the right candidates who are not only able and willing to go through the whole bootcamp but also to succeed when you land that dream job of yours.

Who shall I contact if I have questions about the Admissions process?

We’re doing our best to make your application process the best possible, but surely there is always room for approval or you might just have a question about your application.


Our Admissions team is always happy to answer any questions you may have! Please reach out to admissions@re-coded.com.
