Our admissions process has been built to reveal this. In addition to strong motivation, you will need solid analytical thinking, as well as quick problem-solving and learning ability. These competences will be measured based on performance shown while solving two online games (Dotto and Curiosity) during the admissions process. A certain level of the candidate’s profile match with the benchmark profile must be achieved in order for the candidate to be able to master the curriculum at an increased pace in 4 months.
You can postpone your start and join the following class, if it’s more suitable for you.
English is the default language used in the IT industry. IT professionals all over the world are required to have a solid command of English in order to be able to collaborate with their colleagues and assist their customers. However, you don’t have to be a fluent speaker at the beginning - you should have a good understanding.
Both options have their advantages. Choose online studying if you don’t want to commute to the centre of Prague and have the option to create a space for studying at home. Choose an on-campus course, if you prefer to communicate with people face-to-face and want to study at our premises. The content of the online and on-campus courses is the same.
Yes. If you've already tried programming of any kind (online course, Green Fox Academy workshop) or if you already have a degree in any field.
Absolutely. If you pass the admissions process we will keep your application on record and save you a spot for the upcoming and following courses. However, we cannot guarantee that the courses taking place afterwards will still be available for you due to limits in capacity.
Unfortunately we do not because the admissions process requires a huge investment of energy, not just from the side of the applicant but also from our admissions team.
Yes, but half a year must elapse between the two applications because we believe that this amount of time is needed to prepare for reinitiation of the process.
No, but we are always transparent about the program. Our oldest student thus far was 46 years old at the time of the course and it was more difficult for him to prove that he was as capable of coping with a junior position as his younger colleagues. Our experience shows that it’s entirely up to you to consider how you will handle having a new career in a junior position after years of experience in another field.
We always leave a buffer of more than 30 days between the announcement of your acceptance into the program and the start of the training, so if you are currently employed, you only need to terminate your job in case you get into the program. The admissions process spans approximately 2 weeks and you will receive your results within a few days of completing each step.
Our courses run approximately twice a year, depending on student interest.
The attendance is obligatory in the Super Intensive Course. We want to make sure that you devote your time to studying and it is also one of the conditions for the job guarantee. We solve special cases including health issues of students on an individual basis. During the course you can take 2 days off without any required documentation as verification. Additionally, you have 3 days of sick leave, which you have to prove by submitting a doctor’s note. If you are a student with a child under 3 years of age, you have 5 additional days of leave which do not require documentation as verification.
Yes. Everyone works on their own laptop. It can be an average one, no special features are required. It would preferably have at least a dual core processor and 4 GB of memory. The operating system should be 64-bit, and can be Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Mac OS.
There are 1on1 meetings for both online and offline classes, where you can discuss your issues with a mentor. For online courses we offer a meeting at our premises as well.
Both parties can terminate the student contract within the first 14 days from the beginning of the course (30 days in the case of the evening and weekend course). If the contract is terminated by Green Fox Academy, we will refund the entire amount paid. If you terminate the contract on your own, we will refund the tuition fees paid, except 10 000 CZK, which we will use to cover the costs caused by your enrollment in the course. If you do not complete 90% attendance or do not complete the preparatory task before the start of the course, we will keep 30 000 CZK, regardless of which party terminated the contract.
Compared to traditional schools, this training requires a lot of work in a very short time. The total length of the training is 18 weeks + 3 weeks of breaks, every weekday from 9 am to 6 pm, followed by homework and practice. You have to count on 50 to 60 hours of work per week.
Evening and Weekend Course takes part 2 weekdays evenings (18:30-21:30) and whole weekend day (9:00-18:00). In total, you have to count on 20 hours per week.
Green Fox Academy's uniqueness lies in the methodology of the courses, which is based on the flipped classroom method and a lot of practical coding. Also, we offer you a job guarantee - which means that we find you a job in IT within 6 months after your graduation or we give you back your tuition fee, if you speak Czech at least on B2 level.
In our courses, the main emphasis is put on practice and real world projects. As opposed to an academic degree, we won’t teach you that much theory. Also, at the end of the course we award you with a Green Fox certificate, not an academic diploma.
Please see the detailed syllabus on the courses webpage. At the end of the Foundation module you should be able to create a simple 2D graphical game that consists of a tile-based maze and a character who can be controlled using the keyboard. At the end of the Orientation module you should be able to create an interactive web application that can be connected to a database. In the last module of the course, participants are split into 3-4 person groups, and each group is assigned with a Front-end, Back-end or Full-Stack project.
The tuition differs according to what package you choose - @Before, @After, @PathVariable or @Component - and type of course. Information about tuition are on this page.
You only have to be over 18 to apply for the course, there is no upper age limit. The important factor is your motivation and an open mind to learning.
Very rarely, but it has happened in the past. This is typically due to a sudden work opportunity, but there were also those who decided to quit for personal / family reasons as the course could not fit into their life at the time.
It’s not necessary to speak English at an advanced level. However, you need to keep in mind that the study materials are in English. If you’re not sure about your English, you can find out during the selection process. In order to get the maximum from the course, it’s good to have at least an intermediate level of English.
Yes! Our students have changed their career path to software development from a variety of backgrounds: sportsmen, musicians or managers have all studied with us. You can see their stories on the Blog.
Our students come from various backgrounds, jobs and are of different ages. The average age of our students is around 30. What connects them is the passion for coding. :)
You don't have to speak Czech to finish the course. Only difference is that we cannot give you the money-back guarantee, unless you speak Czech at least at B2 level.
According to the Czech Statistical Office approximately 30,000 software developers are missing from the labour market - and that's just in the Czech Republic, so your chances are high. The best students are hired even during the course. It is important to note that the job search may take a few months.
Based on our experience, absolutely not. It matters more what you know and how open you are to continuous learning.
In such cases it is necessary to pay the proportional amount of the Training Fee (incl. VAT) for the modules you have participated in. You can also consider payment through @Component since the beginning.
Students who choose this package will have to put down a deposit of 20 000 Kč + VAT before the course. The remainder of the fee is to be paid in monthly installments of 20 % of your net salary, once you have graduated and started a new job.
Yes, there is always an option to “buy out” if you have found an employer, however that employer cannot be one of our partners. The full list is attached to the contract and is frequently updated for student´s reference.
