What is coding?
Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made with code.
What do I get certified for?
We deliver our own certificate for all programs (papel and digital).In the current and future world of work, most companies and recruiters focus more on a candidate’s actual skills than on having an official degree. Technical tests, in-person interviews, and how a candidate fits into the company culture are all better indicators of a person’s abilities than a degree, especially in the tech industry.
Successful students will receive a certificate and diploma once they have completed their training, as well as proof of any internships completed.
What are the differences and advantages of IMMUNE's programs compared to traditional IT degrees?
At IMMUNE, it’s our methodology that makes us different. We’re pioneers in an engaging methodology that is 100% practical, hands-on, peer-based. In contrast with traditional institutions, at IMMUNE you won’t be sitting down comfortably - you will be actually programming, learning by doing. There are no traditional professors at IMMUNE; instead, we provide guides and mentors that will help you to accomplish your tasks.
In addition to this, IMMUNE makes sure you’re exposed to the labor market and real world of work, right from the beginning. You’ll have the possibility to do internships practically from day one. IMMUNE also helps you round-out your technical education with a Humanities program, designed to prepare you to use your programming skills in a corporate environment. You won’t just be a skilled coder, you’ll also have the solid business and social skills needed to be a top employee.
How I can enroll in these programs?
Acceptance is based on the admission process
What does the online test consist of?
Each student will be faced with online multiple-choice questions, which will evaluate their overall fluid reasoning and cognitive ability.
Requirements such as a certain grade or GPA, specific undergraduate degrees, language certificates or level of knowledge/training are not necessary.
If I don’t pass the first phase, can I still go onto the presencial challenges?
No. You have to be successful in the first phase (online test) to be able to progress to the second stage (Live Qualifier Event). There is only one chance to pass the online test, so you really need to make sure you’re ready and have everything you need to complete it. Remember there is limited time to do so - 45 minutes!
I have finished registration. What are the next steps?

Will the program help me with networking and making business contacts in the ICT industry?

What professional opportunities does this qualification give me access to?
This qualification reflects the training in competencies that are among the most demanded by companies from multiple sectors.

Each program has a different price. However, thanks to the existing agreements with IMMUNE's partner-companies, students involved in the business entrepreneurship degree will enjoy a partial or total subsidy, depending on their academic performance.

There are no teachers in the traditional sense, but there is an impressive team of instructors that designs the content and supervises the learning process.
How's the working methodology?
At IMMUNE, every student works individually and the execution of each challenge is corrected by a peer. The team of instructors supervises both the execution and the corrections, scoring both students.
Sometimes, there are challenges that must be solved in a group. In those cases, groups will be composed randomly or by choice, depending on the challenge.
