study part time


Fit your study around your life. The same hands-on coding programme that will transform your career — on your terms.

Keen to become a work ready programmer this year but have other commitments to work around? We get it. Whether you need to work part-time, pick up children from daycare or school, or be available to care for other family members, we understand that not everyone can commit to a full-time course.

We also know how hard it can be to get back into study after time away from the classroom — easing back into study with more flexibility can be the better option for many students.

That’s why we’ve designed a reduced intensity, online course for our busiest students who are happy to study for longer, but fewer hours per week. You’ll enjoy the same high quality tutors, but ditch the commute and have more flex around your other commitments. You’ll be job ready in 30 weeks* and ready to kick start your new career as an entry level web developer.

Our students love the dedicated human support we bring to our learning. Even in the reduced intensity environment, you will get to work with your peers on projects but have flexibility in how you engage with our content. Your class time will be spent reviewing learning, asking questions and conducting your pair and group work (don’t worry - we match you up for this). 

We are currently accepting applications for our next part time cohort.



21 hours/week for 10 weeks

Foundations is a well-supported, self directed experience. You will study remotely, taking on weekly challenges, and having fortnightly check-ins with tutors. It is vital you have reliable access to the internet throughout the course.


Main course

30 hours/week for 18 weeks

During the 18 week main course, most students will have 15-20 hours per week of collaborative learning with classmates and teachers. Another 10 hours a week will be spent on assignments, challenges, and portfolio projects.

You will be guided by teachers who are passionate about helping students master the principles of software development, and you will learn by solving coding challenges in pairs, solo and in group projects.

Human Skills

Fortnightly deep dives and check-ins

While we train you to be a junior developer, we equally emphasise teaching collaboration and interpersonal skills. Most web development is done in teams and requires effective communication with designers, project managers, and clients.


25 hours/week for 2 weeks

Our careers sessions will help you develop the skills to land your first dev job and grow your career. Topics include effectively job hunting, CV preparation, and skills for interviewing. Careers sessions are recorded so graduates can review them when preparing for a big job interview. Graduates can also work 1-on-1 with an industry recruiter to help with their job seeking efforts.

Tech Stack

Dev Academy focuses on JavaScript and TypeScript, both essential in the current job market. Our students are also equipped with the skills to pick up other coding languages. Other languages and frameworks we explore include React, RESTful APIs, HTML and CSS.

We prepare you to be a full stack developer by giving you opportunities to work in teams, use industry tools, facilitate simple agile processes, and deliver technical and non-technical presentations just like you would in the industry.


Graduate in 30 weeks without uni debt

Our 30-week course fees are $11,790
