20. Are there any age restrictions for studying in DevEducation college?

Our target audience is ambitious, highly motivated people at the age of 18-27, but there can be exceptions. It depends a lot on your mandatory pre-enrollment interview, where you can show your abilities. 33 is the maximum age for enrollment for any course in our college.

We even accepted 16-year-olds. However, in this case, we just won’t be able to provide an opportunity for full-time employment.

21. Do I have to sign an enrollment contract with DevEducation college?

If you received a grant, you will be offered a contract indicating the course name and the number of learning hours. Upon the course completion, you will receive the Certificate of Completion.

50% of our students study while being employed. However, we warn everyone it can be tough to do so.

23. Why is the price of the course so low?

DevEducation is a non-commercial project, and we strive to provide every student who is eager to study with an educational grant. Student’s desire to receive a grant means that s/he is really enthusiastic about the IT industry. We do support people that are eager to become real professionals.

The course price will be significantly low for you if you receive a grant. This is just a tool to filter out careless students and to keep only committed ones. We do not gain any profit for selling the courses. Our key benefit is to provide highly-qualified professionals for IT companies. And qualification of our professionals is much higher than of those recruited via job sites and HR services.

We provide the highest-quality training in the IT education market in terms of further employment. The content of our learning programs is initially based on real-life work statements of modern IT companies. We know for sure what skills and knowledge are required to get a job.

We have sponsorship agreements with our partner companies allocating money for educational grants. This makes our courses accessible to any enthusiastic student. Despite the fact that we totally comply with the needs of the business, we still stand with our students in terms of the learning process.

24. What level of English language skills are required for the course enrollment?

You have to be at least a pre-intermediate level to receive a grant and to be enrolled for the course.

If your English language skills are not as high as expected, but you have perfectly completed all other tasks during the interview, you can apply for a grant and be enrolled on the course.

25. Why don't you offer any classes after 19:00?

This is a standard time for any business education. People may be quite exhausted after 8-9 hours of working. It is not productive to cope up with such an extensive curriculum in the evening.

Besides, we learn from real-life projects, so providing money for grants companies take a serious risk in case our students fail.
