What makes web development the right career?

Creation is the heart of web development

Full-stack web developers work at an exciting crossroads. They’re the technical architects building dynamic web applications from the front to the backend. They combine the hard skills of computing and API building with the soft skills of teamwork and detail-oriented communication.

Developers are a permanent staple of tech

Despite AI’s arrival and Big Tech layoffs, web developer positions continue to surge. In January 2023, the U.S. tech sector entered its 26th straight month of growth, with 75% of businesses wanting to use the cloud, but only 8% having the experience, meaning demand is on the rise.

Work-life balance is baked in

Working remotely or hybrid is a top benefit of working in tech. Web development offers a career that’s stimulating, flexible, and cost-saving. Graduates go on to earn more, work on rewarding projects that solve real problems—and enjoy more time for loved ones and hobbies at home.

What makes CareerFoundry the right school?

We’re the proven path to professional success

Since 2013 we’ve helped 7000+ career changers move from diverse backgrounds like teaching, taxi driving, or opera singing to tech professionals. Our model of industry-driven curriculum, flexibly-paced learning, and expert mentorship ensure graduates land careers they love.

Learn on your schedule, backed by our Job Guarantee

Study flexibly by choosing your own timeline. Immerse yourself in the curriculum, and build your portfolio around your other commitments. Work with your advisor on job coaching and land your first role within six months of graduation or your money back—that’s the Job Guarantee.

2.    What are the prerequisites and requirements for the program?

This program is designed with the absolute beginner in mind. Meaning, there are no prerequisites or prior experience in web development, coding, or tech required.

Regardless of age or background, we’ve built a learning experience to ensure your success. From the catered curriculum and hands-on exercises to one-on-one mentorship and support throughout.

What’s required*:

  • Motivation to transform your career
  • Interest in web development
  • Written and spoken English proficiency at a B2 level or higher
  • A computer (macOS, Windows, or Linux) with a webcam, microphone, and an internet connection
*Note that you will be required to invest some independent study time into familiarizing yourself with the tools you’ll use throughout the program, and learning how to use them. It is estimated that you will need to spend an additional 1-2 hours per week of extracurricular study time becoming comfortable with them.
3.    Which tools will I use and what are the costs?

You’ll mainly be working with a text editor throughout the program. We suggest using free text editing programs such as; Atom, VSCode, and Sublime Text.

Among other tools, you’ll mainly use; Node.js, Javacript, and React. All the tools and software you'll need are free to use—with no additional cost to you.

For further tool requirements related to specialization courses, please view their respective pages:

4.    What are the minimum system requirements?

Compatible operating systems: Windows 10, macOS versions 10.13 and later, Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, or Fedora (Linux). We recommend a minimum of 8 GB of RAM on your device, but 16 GB would be preferable.

Questions? Contact us for more information on requirements for your specific operating system.

5.    Is the program 100% online?

Yes, the program is entirely asynchronous and online—so you can study when and wherever you’d like so long as you can get online and stay on track for graduation.

But this doesn’t mean the learning experience is isolated or lonely! You’ll have regular contact with your mentor, tutor, student advisor, and career specialist—as well as full access to our active student community on Slack.

6.    How long does the program take to complete?

The program is flexibly-paced within a 10-month duration. There are three deadlines along the way that we’ve put in place to help keep you on track for graduation.

Expect to devote a minimum of 15-20 hours per week to graduate within that maximum time frame. This is considered part-time study, and matches the default pacing of the program. If you’d like to graduate in as little as five months, you can devote 30-40 hours per week to reach that goal.

7.    What’s included in the program tuition?

The Full-Stack Web Development Program offers you a complete career change package—from expert-authored curriculum and hands-on projects, to personalized mentorship and career coaching. Find out more here:

8.    Are there payment plans available?

Yes, we offer two payment options. You can save 5% of your total tuition by paying it up front. Alternatively, you can pay a set amount up front to reserve your place in the program, and the remainder in 10 monthly payments (regardless of when you graduate from the program).

Still not feasible for you? Book a call with a program advisor to see if you’re eligible for a customized payment plan.

9.    Does CareerFoundry offer full or partial scholarships?

While we do offer an ongoing tuition reduction to active U.S. military personnel and veterans, as well as periodic, partial scholarships/tuition reductions, we do not offer any full scholarships or funds at this time.

If you’d like to learn more about any of these offers, please reach out to a program advisor.

10.    What’s the refund policy if I change my mind?

If you’re not happy with the program in the first 14 days from the start date, you can simply cancel for a full refund. If you are 60% or less of the way through the program duration (not including any extensions) and need to cancel for any reason, you may be eligible for a prorated refund. For more information, see our full terms and conditions.

11.    Do I get a certificate at the end?

You will receive a signed CareerFoundry certificate when you complete the program. This will make it easy for you to share your new qualification on LinkedIn and with potential employers or clients.

12.    Is the program accredited and what does ZFU-approved mean?

While the program is not university accredited, it does undergo a rigorous quality assurance and certification process with the ZFU (Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht)—the state body for distance learning in Germany.

This process ensures that the program meets a high stand for an excellent and effective learning experience.

On successful completion of this certification process, the program is assigned a unique approval number (7359420) which can be checked against a public register.

13.    Are there eligibility requirements for the job guarantee?

There are conditions that graduates need to meet in order to be eligible for the job guarantee. We’re transparent about these requirements because we want them to be easy for you to follow and because we know they genuinely help graduates succeed in their job search.

You’re eligible for the job guarantee when:

  • You’ve successfully completed 100% of your CareerFoundry program as well as our free Job Preparation course.
  • You’re applying to at least five relevant jobs a week.
  • You live in a metropolitan area with a population above 200K people in any of the following countries: USA, Canada, European Union or EFTA countries, UK, Australia, or New Zealand (or you’re willing to relocate).
  • And when you meet other qualifying criteria (please read the full terms and conditions)
If you have any questions about the job guarantee or the eligibility criteria, simply book a call with a program advisor—they’re happy to help!
14.    What kind of job can I get after the program?

Based on the program’s comprehensive curriculum, you’ll be ready to apply for and step into any of these roles:

  • Junior web developer
  • Web developer
  • Frontend developer
  • Full-stack developer
Keep in mind that many job ads for web developers ask for 2+ years of experience, but it is often part of their "wishlist" rather than a requirement.

If you have transferable skills from your previous career, it’s possible to land a more senior role. Your dedicated career specialist (during the Job Preparation Course) will help you understand your transferable skills and craft the right narrative to present in your job application materials.
