FAQ The answers to all of your questions are here!

Are Developer or Data analyst jobs also for women?

Developer or Data analyst are professions open to all profiles. Wild Code School now welcomes 25% women

The jobs in the digital sector may involve staggered working hours, which may at first seem like a constraint, but which can also be a great advantage with very flexible working hours, in which remote work is possible. 

A woman alone or with children can therefore adapt her schedule according to her needs. Knowing how to code also allows women to be more creative, to benefit from a booming sector and to launch an entrepreneurial project more easily.

Do I get help to find a job after the training?

The campus managers of each school are there to support each student in their search for an internship or a job. They help the student to position themselves on the job market. Students benefit from lessons and coaching sessions on job searching, CV and cover letter writing, online presencetechnical tests, and interview preparation

The school also receives exclusive internship and job offers, which are regularly sent to students and alumni.

Do you offer distance learning?

We offer distance learning. You can check all the detailed information about our remote trainings going to "Campus" and selecting one of our remote campus. You can also contact our remote learning manager : Gala Leibar ([email protected]), she will answer all your questions. 

How many students are there per session?

The number of students depends on the capacity of each campus. We guarantee a maximum of 20 students for 1 trainer, which allows us to offer individual support during the training and job research later on..

Is it possible to work and attend the course at the same time?

Wild Code School offers intensive training courses of 5 months or 1 year. During this time, students devote 100% of their energy to learning the skills needed for a new job. 

They are required to at school every day of the week from 9am to 6pm. Most students tend to stay later to work on their projects. It is therefore not possible to work full-time in parallel.

The only exception are the part-time courses, which allow students, on some campuses, to combine full-time work and training.

What are some of the opportunities open to me after the training?

Wild Code School provides training for digital jobs. Our former students work in SMEs, startups or local authorities, in web agencies or as freelancers.

After the training, many professional opportunities open up, such as becoming a web developer, mobile application developer, data analyst, growth hacker, digital project manager, integrator, digital animator, digital entrepreneur, etc.

What is the typical profile of a Wild Code School student?

There is no specific profile. Recruitment is based on skills and motivation. 

Some of our students are in the process of retraining or seeking professional development, looking to enter a booming sector. Others have already received computer training, but lack practice. Others may want to add a string to their bows, such as graphic designers or integrators, to boost their profile and gain interest from recruiters. Some applicants are working on a startup project and are looking to acquire programming skills to build their prototype, the MVP of their application. 

The average student age at Wild Code School is 29. We accept students from 18 years of age. Some of our students do not have a degree, others have a doctorate. This is what contributes to the richness of the training.

What type of computer do I need?

- Minimum processor Intel i5 (4 years or less) 

- Minimum Ram 8 Go

SSD 120 Go

Who are the trainers of Wild Code School?

Our trainers are present full-time in our schools. Their role with students is to provide support and guidance, rather than bring a knowledge holder. They supervise students throughout their projects and act as lead developers for clients. 

They are professional developers who want to pass on their knowledge and passion for programming to our students. Do you want to join our team of trainers? Send us a message at [email protected]

Why do Wilders learn without shoes?

Wild Code School students remove their shoes before entering the school. We want them to feel at home, relaxed and comfortable. 

Taking off your shoes is also a way to change your habits, to free yourself from the shackles of traditional education, which often prevents you from expressing yourself. When the feet are free, so is your mind!
