How often are classes at Leagues of Code?
Our classes are not the average classes you may take in a traditional setting. We have Group Sessions and they occur during each weekend on Saturdays or Sundays.
What is the journey students go through in your program to learn coding?
Our curriculum has 5 leagues. In each league we teach specific topics and skills that are necessary for students to learn at that level.
Each topic within a league has its own 4 weeks module. In each module students take part in many activities to learn that specific topic in depth.
During the 4 weeks they will practice and perform individually and in teams on the specific topic in the module. Their results will show in their performance when solving problems.
After presenting a good performance on the topics of their current module they will continue to the next module of their league. Throughout the league they are given exercises to continuously test their knowledge in prior modules they have completed.
What kind of problems are in the placement test?
In the placement test, there are math and coding questions to evaluate your current level and understanding of both. Students who don't have previous coding knowledge are asked to ignore the coding part.
Do you provide homework for students?
As students complete group sessions during the weekend, they will receive problems to practice during the week.
Can you change the day/time of classes?
During registration, we ask for your day of preference for the live group sessions. We try our best to fit your preference in our system but we cannot guarantee 100% that we’ll be able to add you to a group on that day. Most of our sessions are between 10AM-2PM (CET). Contact us for more help in case these times don’t work for you.
How does it work if the time changes?
Our times follow the timezone of CET following the daylight savings time.
Does your program have breaks?
Yes, during the calendar year we have a total of 40 weeks (10 modules) worth of content. The other 12 weeks serve as breaks in between modules to relax and catch up with the learning material. For students keen to keep going, bonus activities are always available.
What is a Webinar?
At Leagues of Code, a webinar is a 40-60 minute online session with an industry expert or professional that gives insight in the current industry. They talk about their background, their work, and what they love about coding. It’s a good chance to get to know them and receive their insights.
What if a student misses a class?
To be able to unlock a new module, a student cannot miss more than one class. In case of missing a class, it’s highly recommended to notify the teacher at least 24 hours beforehand. In any case, the session recordings are sent a few hours after the session and you can book a 1-on-1 session to ask any questions. In the case of a team or solo contest taking place that week, it’s important to notify the instructor to arrange it at an appropriate time.
