Accessibility is key

Codam is accessible to everyone. It is all about talent, the will to learn, and perseverance. It does not matter what you have done in the past or which qualifications you have. How the program is structured is not comparable to MBO, HBO, or WO; as we know it in the Netherlands, we have our path.

Close links to the labor market

We train students how to program, but more importantly, we train them learning to learn. Students develop skills like curiosity, relevancy, and confidence that will help them to tackle every challenge.

Support the students

Codam does not fit into one of the three traditional boxes of MBO/HBO/WO education. It means that students do not have access to financing support (studiefinanciering), travel cards and student housing. You can help our students by supporting our campaign for special recognition for innovative educational concepts to make sure that Codam students obtain the same rights as regular students.
