HackerYou’s Full-Stack Masterclass is a 57-hour, nine-week part-time course that will enrich your front-end knowledge with key back-end development concepts and Computer Science fundamentals.
What You’ll Learn
After taking a deep dive into React, each week you’ll cover back-end concepts as you continue to build your project. Topics include Node and Express, Models, MongoDB and Mongoose, validation and querying, routing and advanced models, and – of course – deployment. In addition to your Sunday classes, you’ll have weekday evening sessions for supported project work time. At the end of this course, you’ll have a polished skillset and your first rich full-stack application
Our admissions process for the Full-Stack Masterclass is selective. We only accept experienced developers and designers committed to doing what it takes to level up. Through six-hour weekend lessons, you’ll able to really dig in and explore complex concepts every class. Weekend lessons are supplemented by mentored office hours every Wednesday night. We’ve perfected the course schedule to ensure an engaging and intensive experience that can be balanced with a full-time job.

I had a great experience taking the Web Development class at HackerYou. I am a designer of 15 years in need to deep my toes in the digital world. My understanding of the web and coding was very limited if any. At HackerYou I learned so much. The teachers were super approachable and friendly to any questions we would have during class. The class was very well structured and the easy to check the notes online is amazing. I only have positive things to say and recommend taking this class at HackerYou. I look forward to continue taking other courses with them.

I've found the instructors and mentors to be very helpful and informative, and the course material presented in a very fun and engaging manner. The HY community itself is very inclusive and supportive. They have a great alumni network and it's exciting to see that alumni want to come back to support students by mentoring and volunteering their time.
I cannot recommend HackerYou enough!
I’m brand new to coding. Where should I start?
If you’re looking to learn how to code, we recommend our part-time Web Development Fundamentals & Advanced Web Development courses. These are designed for complete beginners. You’ll start by learning the very basics of HTML, CSS, and responsive web design. By the end of the Advanced course, you’ll be able to code a responsive multi-page website entirely from scratch!
Do you offer any form of financial aid?
Students who complete our part-time Intro to Web Development course are eligible to receive a $1,500 scholarship if accepted to the Web Development Immersive program! Students who also complete Advanced Web Development are eligible for an additional $500 scholarship. On top of that if accepted to the Web Development Immersive, students who have taken any of our other part-time Intro courses are eligible to receive a $500 scholarship, and an additional $500 scholarship for taking the Advanced course. If you’ve taken both the part-time Web Development courses and another set of part-time courses – you can combine your scholarships and receive $3,000+ off the program. Other than that, we don’t offer any internal forms of financial aid, grants or scholarships. Our friends at Borrowell and Financeit do provide personal loans to HackerYou students enrolled in part-time courses and full-time courses, though!
Do you offer payment plans?
Due to the competitive nature of our programs, we normally aren’t able to offer payment plans. However, if a student has a specific situation, we’ll always do our best to accommodate.
When is my tuition due?
For all of our part-time courses, a deposit of $1000 plus HST is due immediately upon registration to secure your spot in the course. The remaining balance is then due two weeks before the program begins. Tuition MUST be paid in full before the program starts in order to gain access to course resources including course notes. For our Web Development Immersive, 50% of tuition is due immediately upon acceptance into the program, plus a $100 registration fee. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before the program begins.
Does HackerYou qualify for OSAP?
Not yet! Private Career Colleges must be in operation for 2 years before students are eligible to apply for OSAP. Our Web Development Immersive was only registered as an approved program under the Private Career College Act 2005 in December 2016. Please note that when we are OSAP-eligible, it will only be for our full-time program and not part-time courses. If you’re employed and interested in taking a part-time course with us, we’ve partnered with Borrowell, who offer personal loans to students enrolled in our part-time courses.
Is my tuition tax deductible?
As a registered Private Career College in Ontario, we provide T2202a forms for students who complete the Web Development Immersive program. For students who completed this program before January 2017, we cannot retroactively issue T2202a forms. Unfortunately, due to our standing as a Private Career College, we cannot provide a tax form for any of our part-time courses, as they are not diploma or certificate programs. For more information on Ontario’s Private Career Colleges, check out the Private Career Colleges Act 2005.
Do you provide certificates upon completion of one of your courses?
Students who complete the Full-Time Web Development Immersive program will receive a certificate. We do not provide certificates for our part-time courses. We’re happy to provide documentation of completion for part-time courses, however, if required by your employer.
Do you accept International Students?
Yes, we do and have accepted international students to our programs in the past. Students applying to the Web Development Immersive with a non-Canadian postsecondary diploma must have their degrees assessed as equivalent to a Canadian postsecondary diploma or degree by a recognized assessment service. HackerYou does not require you to have a particular type of visa in order to attend due to the length of our programs. For more information, you can learn more about being a Visitor to Canada on the Citizenship and Immigration CanadaWebsite. If you wish to stay and work in Canada after the program, please note that HackerYou is unable to assist students in obtaining a Canadian Working Visa. We encourage prospective Web Development Immersive students to look into the process before applying to the program as to not delay your job hunt upon completion of the program.
