I’m an absolute beginner with zero experience or knowledge in the subject matter you teach (e.g., software engineering, digital marketing). Are your courses still for me?

Many of our long-form courses are geared toward beginners and no prior knowledge of a subject is required.


Additionally, these courses often feature pre-work assignments to get you up to speed with essential concepts and tools.


Inevitably, our courses attract students with a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise, so we make sure to have instructional associates, office hours, and additional help available as needed to provide personalised feedback and support. 

What benefits do students receive once they complete a GA course?

After graduation, our alumni become part of a global community whose members are invested in one another’s success. We also provide the tools they need to foster lifelong learning and pursue work they love.

How do I secure my spot in a course?

To ensure all students get the individual attention and resources they need to succeed, class sizes are limited. After submitting their applications, students connect with an admissions rep, who determines whether or not the course is a fit for their experience and goals.


Additionally, applicants for our full-time Immersives complete admissions assessments to ensure they are prepared for the rigor of the curriculum. Once you’ve been accepted and have put down your initial down payment, your spot in the course is secure.

Besides the hours spent in class each week, how much time do I need to dedicate to a course outside of the classroom?

It varies by course and by person, but, as a part-time student, be prepared to work hard and dedicate several hours outside of the classroom each week to review course material and complete homework assignments.

Our Immersive students also devote additional time to portfolio projects, networking events with hiring partners, career services support, and more. Either way, our courses are designed to be rigorous and intensive, but, most of all, incredibly rewarding!

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept online bank transfer.

Do you offer any free learning resources?

Yes! Our free introductory livestreams can help kickstart your journey into data analytics, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, statistics, product management, digital marketing, or UX design.

We also host a variety of free events every week online and at our campuses around the world. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay in the loop.
