MASTERCLASS BEGINS IN:
Beginner-friendly, no prior experience needed, only a computer!
With Covid19, the lockdown and social distancing are redefining how NEXT Academy classes are conducted.
We have experimented and conducted LIVE stream/ online classes for our coding and digital marketing students. It has been an amazing experience for our students!
Our classes are conducted LIVE - not just lectures, but also our ability to provide real-time mentorship to look at your code through LIVE stream, LIVE voice as well as LIVE chat.
You will be guided by coding mentors and tap into their experiences. You will get to experience their thought processes and learn directly from them.
You will be guided by marketers and tap into their experiences. You will get to experience their thought processes and learn directly from them.
After the course is done, you will be able to get your Facebook & Instagram Advertising certificate.

NEXT Academy has trained many people from different backgrounds to become coders.
E.g. journalists, accountants, engineers, DJs, waiters, students and more. Here's what they say.
From Communications Exec to Full Stack Coder
"I am in charge of my company's copy and website but felt limited because I couldn't customise the website the way I want to. Now, I'm bringing back my new skills to help my company innovate and build better websites and apps."Read More in Blog
Co-founder of Nucleus Solutions
"I had an exceptional journey from being interested in programming to actually being able to program. The journey was filled with challenges but it was definitely worth it."Read More in Blog
From Project Manager to CTO of GoGet
The coding bootcamp taught me how to think like a developer. I am now able to better manage my team and plan our technology roadmap for the future, I now have many mentors and friends to pull on when I am in need of tech advice.Read More in Blog
From Sales to Software Developer at AirAsia
NEXT Academy has taught me to believe in myself, take the plunge and go for it. You wouldn't know until you try.Read More in Blog
From air stewardess to Coder
"NEXT Academy has improved my skills a lot. The Mentors are there to help you. They will give you direction and push you to be better!"Read More in Blog
From graphic designer to full stack web developer
I learned coding because I wanted to build anything I could ever imagine, but when I tried by myself but I still could not build anything... But then I joined NEXT Academy, I can now design websites that are executable in a more efficient way!Read More in Blog
There is currently a huge shortage of skilled front-end developers and this will continue for decades to come as web development continues to evolve.
By the end of the program, you should have the skills to build websites. You should hone your skills further by continuing to design and code more websites. The more proficient you are, the more opportunity there will be when it comes to freelancing or even a job as a frontend web developer.
The Quantum Degree® is a qualification unique to NEXT Academy which applies to its various tech programs. To own the certificate is proof of your dedication to completing the comprehensive curriculum. Recognition of the Quantum Degree® among employers is also rising as more of our graduates set foot in the tech industry. Many of our past students come from unrelated industries, bearing zero tech knowledge, yet move on to be hired by companies such as AirAsia, Mindvalley, KFIT, Digi, and Grab, among many others. This is what the Quantum Degree® means to our graduates, and it can open similar doors for you as you set out to realize your own goals and ambitions.
No. Our program was designed for beginners in mind. Around 70% of our students have no experience with code and the rest have either Computer Science degrees or have tried to learn to code on their own before.
Having said that, these students have done well because they are serious about learning and have put in consistent effort daily to achieve their coding goal.
From the feedback given by graduates of other shorter courses, they learned nowhere near what they were promised. We are aware that a lot of academies out there attempt to sell people something that already appeals to most people's lifestyle and budget. They charge less and minimize the duration of their program to appeal to people's taste in order for their academies to be highly profitable. There are probably exceptions. But to achieve anything great, sacrifice is needed. There were no cases where great people achieve great success with minimal sacrifice. NEXT Academy has a strong track record of graduates achieving great results and is dedicated to continuing the excellence without wavering standards. Our program isn't designed for everyone and only the hungriest and brightest people tend to join us.
Many coding courses charge less and minimize the duration of their program to appeal to people's taste in order for their academies to be highly profitable. Furthermore, many of these courses have low touch point with the mentors or instructors.
We wanted to make our bootcamp accessible to as many as possible. We are glad to see that many of our students who have transitioned into a tech career even though they started with no coding background.
Our goal is to create impact. We have seen companies sending their graphic designers to our course and now they contribute even more as a frontend coder/ designer.
We wanted to make this bootcamp, which was inspired by bootcamps in Silicon Valley, accessible to as many as possible so that we can make an impact in the tech ecosystem within this region.
It's unlike your typical class/lecture that you are used to. The state of our mass education system, built in a whole other and older era, has spoonfed us and taught us to be good employees in the past. Things have changed. At NEXT Academy, there will be minimal lectures and maximum hands-on/self-driven learning. You will actually need to think and be intellectually stimulated.
The training focuses on hands-on learning with real-life coding scenarios. This will give you a holistic picture on why you use React and how to handle certain challenges when you are coding in React.
It's certainly possible. Our founder, Josh, was self-taught. In his words, "It made me very independent compared to many computer science college graduates." However, it usually takes a long time to learn on your own because of the steep learning curve.
Many students who came to us told us that while they have the discipline to learn online, they had no mentors to turn to when they are stuck. Which is why, our courses are very much focused on mentorship.
We might have a solution for you! We offer an instalment plan for either a 6-month or 12-month period, with 0% interest. This is only for Maybank cardholders. Unfortunately, debit cards are not accepted.
Furthermore, you can check with your company if they are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) registered. All our courses are HRDF approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.
Our youngest student so far was 16 and our oldest was 43. You are never too old or too young to be ambitious. It's the attitude that matters most.
No, you don't need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy.
There are many ways to start learning to code. Beginners would usually need to learn the process of trying out the code they write and getting feedback from the computer. From our experience, beginners find that HTML and CSS make learning to code easier as there is a visual feedback to what they have just written. Basically, you get to see your outcome visually.
Intakes will close 1-week before the intake's start date. We recommend enrolling 2-3 weeks before the intake starts to complete the prepwork.
Join our Waiting List and we'll inform you once your preferred intake is open for registration.
No; once your learning duration has started. Yes; before your learning duration starts. However, under extreme situations with substantial proof, we will evaluate on a case-by-case basis.
All our courses are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.
