"I spent a decade doing project management but knew I wanted to jump onto the tech bandwagon. When my company announced they intended to send some of their employees to learn web development, I jumped at the chance and I'm now working as a Full Stack developer!"
"I wanted to become a programmer but I failed my foundation year in Uni, and I didn't know what to do. I joined NEXT Academy on the recommendation of a friend and discovered I had an aptitude for coding. Today I am living my dream as a programmer."
"I was stuck in a career I didn't enjoy and I wanted a change to get into tech. I tried coding by myself for 1 year but the learning journey was slow because I was undisciplined. I decided to join NEXT by faith and 2 weeks after completing the bootcamp, I landed my dream job as a junior software engineer!"
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 spoon-fed 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.
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.

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.
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.

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.
