What Our Past Graduates Say

Jordan Rao
“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.”
Ton Pham
“I enjoyed learning Web Development at Next Academy. When I started, I hadn't touched a computer for about a year. I wouldn't say I was tech-savvy at all. But after the course, I feel like I learned a lot. I don't think you have to be very tech-savvy or know all the latest trends to get into programming.”
Manoj Kumar
“A very good start for new programmers who wish to learn how to code and want to know what web development is about with the help of mentors”

Frequently Asked Questions

+I have zero coding background or knowledge, am I suitable?

Yes, this Quantum Degree is intended for the absolute beginner with zero coding background.

+What do I need to prepare for the course?

A laptop with Google Chrome and a fast internet connection is all you need to start!
If anything else is required we'll be sure to inform you beforehand :)

+How are classes conducted in this Quantum Degree?

This Quantum Degree will cover these three aspects of learning:

1. Gaining Knowledge
You will learn by accessing weekly lectures via our learning portal. Unlike typical 2-hour long lectures, our lectures are in the form of bite-sized videos to help maximize knowledge absorbtion and maintain your attention. You will also be presented with short quizzes to test your understanding.
(On your own time via Learning Portal)

2. Skills Mastery
We've discovered that the only way to properly consolidate students learning is by giving them challenges to solve. This will greatly enhance their understanding of the topics for the week. Each week, you will be presented with challenges to complete and submit to the learning portal. Your completed challenges will be reviewed and you will receive personalized feedback by your mentors.
(On your own time before Saturday submission deadline)

3. Networking
Our community portal will allow you to interact with your peers and mentors 24/7. Furthermore, the selected Saturday live meetups will be recorded.

+What are the job prospects like for Web Developers? And how will NEXT Academy help me?

There is a shortage for web developers in the industry today, given the speed of how technology is moving, businesses are required to keep up with the technological trends to stay competitive. Therefore web developers are always highly sought after.

This course was created with the working adult in mind, or anyone a person who wished to upskill themselves in their own time.

Due to the introductory nature of this Quantum Degree, we are unable to guarantee employment for our students after the course.
That said, we firmly believe that this Quantum Degree will serve as a perfect introduction to your journey into full-stack programming.

+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®’s 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.

+What is the difference between this Quantum Degree and the Full-time Bootcamps?
Big Picture

We built this course with the progressive individual in mind - the individual who wishes to upskill themselves and increase their value in the job market on their own time, but at the same time is unable to attend a full-time course. Part-time Quantum Degrees® gives you the best of both worlds. Flexibility, an awesome curriculum and expert mentorship!


The Differences
Outcomes

Our full-stack bootcamp prepares students to become Jr. Full-stack Developers right upon completion (400-hours intensive). In contrast this course will give you all you need to get started as a web developer - it will give you the foundational skills to starting a career in web development and also opens more possibilities for you to learn more advanced topics in web development in the future.


What Remains The Same

Personalized Mentorship
We learnt that the best learning experience happens when students are able to get feedback from instructors on their progress - thus we maintain the mentorship aspect from our bootcamps, albeit remotely.

Structured Curriculum
Our curriculum has been a big reason our courses are always filled - we built this course with similar curriculum methodologies, with the added benefit that you may learn from anywhere.
