I decided to attend HackerYou because I was looking to change gears in my professional life and a friend told me about the school. The HackerYou teachers really take a vested interest in helping you learn and succeed. I may have expected a schooling system similar to what I grew up with, but this went beyond that quickly. The course material was concise and well written with highly skilled and enthusiastic teachers(yes, multiple) ready to help students throughout the class. I wasn't sure if I wanted to pursue the bootcamp option they offered when I heard about the school at first, but after this part time course, I'm convinced it is in my best interest to do so. I plan on using the skills I've acquired to do a lot of freelance web design and eventually make it my career after taking more classes. So far, taking the web design courses has helped me speak in more precise terms when speaking to web developers in my company. Being able to communicate my thoughts in a language we both understand takes a lot of the guesswork out of what I could ask them to do. I am amazed by how much we managed to cover in the part time courses alone and I think it is important for people to invest in themselves. I'm glad I took the time to invest in myself and I hope that anyone looking for a change gets to find it here.

I took both the Web Development Fundamentals and Advanced courses at HackerYou and my experience was nothing short of amazing. The classes were fun, the instruction was clear, and both the instructor and mentors were super supportive and helpful. I highly recommend HackerYou to anyone looking to learn more about Web Development.
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.
