Date: Feb 23, 2021

Application Deadline March 29th 2021

Refactory gives you an intensive introduction to tech. You will learn both the technical and non-technical skills required to meet the demands of a tech industry that competes globally. The technical modules are designed together with ICT companies and follows industry standards and best practice methods.

Our Catalyst Course is a 3-month program that covers everything from Javascript and Git, to project management, system security and leadership. Refactory is a full-time course, but with emphasis on self-study and practical tasks. You are in charge of your own success!

Tech skills

We believe in the startup mantra: Fail fast, fail often.

Whether you just graduated with a degree in computer science, have been coding on your own for years, or just started out, you will be challenged at Refactory.

You will be introduced to both basic and cutting edge technology, and get to use them on actual projects.

Non-technical skills

Building an IT solution is about more than just knowing HTML, Python, React, C++ or SQL. Before you start coding, you need to know how and why you're solving the problem.

That's why we spend a lot of time on key skills like critical thinking, problem solving, leadership, and project management.

This is what distinguishes ordinary developers from exceptional developers.

How does it work?

We have developed a program that takes you from zero to job-ready in 9 months. The program consists of 3 steps.

Step 1:
Catalyst Course

A focused three-month program that includes training in leadership, critical thinking, IT project management, as well as introductions to different technologies.

Step 2:

A six-month boot camp, where a key component is practical learning through projects with industry partners.

Step 3:
Get hired!

We help our students enter the tech industry the way they want, either as employees or entrepreneurs.

This is how you'll spend your time

Our curriculum changes continuously based on feedback from our industry partners to make sure that we are always teaching you what you need to know!
