Play and rest

Play and rest

During the break we go to the student kitchen for lunch; walk in the park UNIT.City; we play on the console, in table tennis or football; we hold tournaments on board games. In the evenings we like to play "Mafia" or "Munchkin". We organize soulful and detached parties with loud music.

We teach like Apple and Google

ucode IT academy was the first in Ukraine to introduce an innovative methodology consisting of Challenge Based Learning (CBL) and a peer-to-peer approach. Developer teams of iPhone, Mac OS, AppStore, and others study behind it.

Students both learn, and teach

Students both learn, and teach

When peers explain the material to each other, it helps both of them to understand and write better code. It helps to practice communication skills, and, also, if you’re explaining something, you’re learning that topic more profoundly yourself.

Mistakes are good

Mistakes are good

The mistakes help the student to maintain interest in a subject and to not be afraid to make independent decisions. Thanks to mistakes, interest in understanding the problem increases. The student experience grows.

Focus on one task at a time

Focus on one task at a time

This helps maintain attention on the problem at hand and to understand how to develop a solution. This is good brain training and a skill that will come in handy in the future. The focus keeps students the faster they can complete the task.

Automatic diary

Automatic diary

All actions of the student in the learning program are documented. This helps to analyze and reflect on the result: what went well, and what needs more work.

From simple to complex

From simple to complex

The student will never get lost in the program. The learning process is smooth and the coding skills gradually improve if the tasks are completed on time. At first, it’s just the basics of programming. The further the student goes in the program, the more complex and exciting the tasks become.

Use of technology

Use of technology

The student will have to present results to colleagues, research topics on the internet, gather teams, etc. For this purpose, the student will learn to use modern technological tools.

Programmers at ITernal and AJAX believe that CBL works more effectively than regular lectures, seminars and coding training resources.

Пройшов повну програму від Ucode. Пройшовши гілку IoT, я отримав достатньо знань і досвіду для мене цікавлять роботодавців (GlobalLogic). За час мого навчання познайомився з багатьма крутими хлопцями, ентузіастами заліза. Навчився вирішувати складні завдання самостійно, і розв’язувати питання в команді. Дуже вдячний Ucode staff

Юкод – одно из лучших мест, в котором мне приходилось побывать. Я поступил на самый первый набор и на данный момент уже прохожу стажировку в одной из компаний. Здесь помимо знаний я встретил очень много хороших, умных и интересных людей и приобрел новых друзей. А если повезет, то можно и встретить партнеров по бизнесу) Это именно то место, куда, просыпаясь с утра, идешь с удовольствием. Ну и конечно, то ради чего собственно все сюда идут – знания. Да, не буду врать, тут все зависит только от тебя. Хочешь выучиться – выучишься, тут для этого все условия. Но за тобой никто бегать не будет и заставлять тоже. Полная свобода, эффективное пир ту пир обучение это про Юкод. Как я сказал на данный момент я уже прохожу стажировку в одной из компаний, а это мою полную историю обучения вы можете найти на сайте Юкод.

Поступил в августе 2019 года на программу “C Track” а далее в направление web разработки. Выбрал это место из-за уникальной системы обучения. На данный момент работаю front end разработчиком. Место очень классное и комфортное)) Комьюнити очень приветливое и дружелюбное. Больше всего понравилась методика обучения. На то время учился в университете и для меня это было необычно, но она оказалась очень эффективной). Здесь познакомился и подружился с многими хорошими людьми)). Место очень вдохновляющее)

Ucode – досить гарна програма, яка за своїми методиками наближена до реальних умов на роботі. Навчання побудоване на основі Chalenge Based Learning. Інтенсивність дуже висока, якщо постаратися, потратити нерви і здоров’я, то можна 2-3-4х річну програму звичайних курсів чи універів втиснути в один рік тут, але прийдеться ЕБШть 💪😌. Дає глибокі знання програмування з самих основ. Програми розроблювали компанії-партнери сучасного ринку ІТ. Я навчаюся на програмі вже рік і маю дуже позитивне враження) не останніх плюс, що ucode – це також коммюніті, тут вам і безкоштовний gym, мафія по чт і птн, турніри по настільному тенісу і волейболу, приставки, безкоштовні семінари та зустрічі, постійні розважальні івенти, курси англійської та багато іншого) приєднуйтесь, буде весело 😉

Features of learning at ucode IT academy: Features of learning at ucode IT academy:

Gamification -
learning process as a game

The student levels up a virtual profile, gains experience for completed tasks, increases knowledge and coding skills.

Peer-to-Peer mechanics

Tasks are assessed by peers that are on the same or higher level in learning. The assessments are made using video calls or in person on campus. Who and when will be the assessor is calculated by the LMS system.

Project defense

Student teams always make presentations of their projects. This happens within internal events on campus. The results are assessed by other teams and partners of ucode.

Knowledge assessment by a robot

The program Oracle assesses the code submitted by students. Such an assessment is impartial, doesn’t make mistakes or deals, and grades objectively. Oracle hints at what is wrong with the code.

Survival marathon

During the marathon, students get a chance to test the limits of their intellectual abilities and train their brains to think critically and to quickly complete tasks. The complexity of the tasks gradually increases, and time limits become more strict. This way, the students truly improve and grow.

FAQ

I pay money but study on my own?

Every student from the first day begins to learn the way programmers work: to solve complex problems, work in a team, use communication tools such as Slack, Zoom, Discord. The academy helps to structure the learning process: to understand the sequence of necessary knowledge, to highlight the most important, and to leave secondary and irrelevant information.

Students get the opportunity to get a job in one of the partner companies with which study programs were developed: Ajax Systems, Ubisoft, Cisco, ITernal Group – the leaders of Ukraine and the world in their fields.

In order to adjust the learning process, each group works with mentors – developers from partner companies. Tasks are checked by other students or by an automatic checking system.

When you start working, you do not face the “expectation – reality”, but quickly get used to and adapt to working conditions, because we have built the system so that you immediately use new information in practice.

How can I combine studying at ucode with work or university?

Every student has their own personal schedule, lifestyle, and effective hours.

This is why the academy has no rules about attendance.

The campus works 24 hours a day.

Mode “Systematic light”:

Recommended learning mode
On business days, the student spends 3 hours a day on campus. For example, in the morning 8:00 – 11:00, or in the evening 18:00 – 21:00. On the weekend, 6-10 hours a day. The student has enough time both for university or work and for studying at ucode. In total, that’s 20 hours a week.

Mode “Weekend sprinter”: 

Intensive learning mode
20 hours on the weekend. Business days free for work and family, and on the weekend – you’re learning a new profession.

Mode “Nighttime”: 

Not recommended by the academy
The student arrives at 22:00 at works until 2:00 – 3:00. Only under 5% of ucode students prefer such a routine (warning – bad for health!).

What is the minimum age to join the program?

16 full years.
There are students aged 16 to 56, and we have not yet had to refuse to study due to older age.
