The Hacker Collective | Upskill with code the practical way! Learn, Experience, Monetise.

Learn by doing.
Become a software engineer.
Job guaranteed.

Welcome to The Hacker Collective’s flagship coding programme that includes an internship as part of the programme, and a job guarantee when you graduate.

Our mission is to inspire a different way of learning and provide equal access to education besides the expensive, slow and inefficient university route.

Accelerated learning.

Education should be accessible to all. The poor, the rich, the underserved, regardless of their ethnicity or religion. We don't ask for your educational backgrounds. As long as you're a hardworking individual who will never give up until you achieve success, we want you.

We want to inspire a peer-to-peer learning model and provide a platform for people to self-learn together. No expensive tuition fees, no expensive lecturers, no expensive facilities. Over 50% university grads couldn’t get a job anyways, according to Graduate Tracer Study.

Our concept is simple. Project-based learning. Learn, build up your portfolio, get real working experience, then get a job with our network of companies. Employers only care if you can add value to them. Your salary increases with according to the value you bring to the table. That's the reality.
