Text box item sample contentWe start with the basics, and using a computer, you will write your first lines of code before moving on to more complex coding exercises. No previous programming experience required! We simply ask that you know how to use a mouse and a keyboard.
Throughout this experience, you will try and you will fail, over and over again. That’s the point: learning the trial-and-error process builds stamina, determination, and process skills that are necessary to be a software engineer.
Basic Training is done using the 42 style of learning: no teachers, no classes or courses, no books. You work by yourself and in groups, ask your peers for help, help your peers, and complete projects. Not convinced? Try it!
4 WEEKS OF CODING
MONDAY TO SUNDAY, DAY AND NIGHT
NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
Many students consider it to be one of the highlights of their student life: everyone around you shares a similar passion for coding and is facing the exact same dilemmas at the same time.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come and spend 4 weeks, 7 days a week, day and night, coding your heart out with several hundred other candidates all hoping to earn the same prize: to be a full-time student at 42.
Check out our day-in-the-life videos of three students. You can also sign up for a virtual tour.
