Frequently Ask Questions
What can I do at the end of the program?
There is currently a huge shortage of skilled front-end developers with React JS specialty.
By the end of the program, hone your skills further by continuing to code more websites. There are many companies who are actively looking for React developers today. There are plenty of job opportunities.
Are Quantum Degrees recognized by employers?
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.
Do I need to know anything before I learn ReactJS at NEXT Academy?
How does NEXT Academy compare with shorter courses available elsewhere?
From the feedback given by experienced developers that have joined 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.
Why is the course so expensive?
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.
Why is the course so cheap?
Our goal is to create impact. We have seen companies sending their existing developers to our course and are happy with their progress.
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.
How are NEXT Academy's part time classes like?
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.
For this part time class, choose your own start date. You will get access to a few things:
- The online curriculum will guide you through your learning process with goals you have to achieve weekly.
- If you've questions anytime, ask online and mentors will reply you during the online mentoring hours on working weekdays.
- On Saturdays, you should come in for the onsite mentorship. Walk-in anytime from 10am - 5pm. The mentors are not there to provide lectures. They are there to give feedback and guidance on your code and it is for you to ask questions that you can't find an answer to them. Our course material consists of coding challenges that are designed to help you learn to be a good independent software developer. It's the most effective way of learning.
How about learning to code online, by myself?
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.
I can't afford your tuition, what options do I have?
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.
Do I need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy?
No, you don't need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy but you will need to fulfil the requirement stated.
What if I join without fulfilling the requirement?
You will have to self-assess your abilities. If you are unsure, you can contact us for more clarity. If you have not fulfilled the prerequisite and yet chose to enrol in this training, we are not liable for your learning progress. There will be no refund.
React JS is a front-end framework. This means that you will need to understand front-end web development fundamentals.
Is there a due date for enrolment?
Start anytime you want. Just keep in mind what goal you want to achieve within the next 10 weeks.
Can I defer once I've enrolled?
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.
Is this course HRDF claimable?
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.
How do I apply for the 0% monthly instalment plan?
Malaysian Maybank Credit Card holders are eligible for the 12-month 0% monthly installment plan. This can be done online.
Can I pay by cheque?
Yes, we accept payment by cheque, you'll have to come to our office to make the payment.
What do you mean by "convertible to full-time"?
It means that, you have the choice to convert to a full-time class within the first 20% of your part time duration with no extra charges.
On the 2nd week (20%) of the 10-week course, you decide to change it to full-time instead, you do not need to pay extra.
Anything beyond 20% of the courses, you will get 50% discount the full-time course.
You went for the part time course and completed it. You decided that you would like to join the full-time course for a refresher. You just need to pay 50% of the full time course to join us full time!
Studies have shown that people who reflect on their failures rather than blame external circumstances are more likely to succeed. While we do our best to ensure the success of all our students, there are things that we may fall short. We ask for your cooperation in creating a healthy learning environment.
