Start of the curriculum

The online

After you created your profile at Codam, you start the online test. The online test consists of 2 games and you will work your way through multiple levels. The goal is to get as far as you can in the time allotted. Have a look at the documentation on your profile before you start, where we explain the first level already!

Do the test!

During the Check-in, we give a presentation about our educational model, the curriculum, how to get in and you have a chance to meet the students! After the presentation, our students take you on a tour through the building. At the end of the Check-in, you get to choose a starting date of your 4-weeks Selection Piscine!

The Selection
Why do the
Selection Piscine?

In other studies or schools there sometimes are tests you have to take to get into a school. In others there is a prior education you must have completed before you can get in. Our biggest part of the application proces is the Piscine. And it's pretty special. A lot of students that start the Piscine, are not quite sure of what to expect. It's really different from what other schools do. Where in other schools you perhaps find out after 6 months if the education is for you, at Codam you figure it out in 1 month without being attached to anything.


The Piscine is meant to detect profiles that would be a good fit for our type of educational model.


This month is build up to be able to start from scratch. You will learn how to start programming in C and this will give you some foundation in the workings of this programming language. No prior knowledge of coding is needed, or any other knowledge of tech. The only thing you need is willpower!


In total we have 3 Piscines every year in the summer. In each Piscine we have 120 potential future students at the start. We strive to make these Piscines as diverse as possible and give everyone a fair start to a future at Codam.


The Piscine is a challenge. You will code everyday for 4 weeks straight. And if we say everyday, we actually mean everyday. It's meant to be a deep dive, where you find out if you like code and if you would enjoy our educational model.


If you make the selection or not, everyone that took part in the Piscine feels like it has been a great experience. You bond over learning all these new things in such a short amount of time.
Take the challenge!
