Why Take This Course?



This MicroDegree offers the introductory platform to programming offered by the Introduction to Programming course, but focuses on more advanced concepts and topics. If you’ve got basic programming skills and are ready to take a step further into more advanced concepts such as best practices for object-oriented programming, a deeper dive into data structures, and advanced IDE topics, this MicroDegree will allow you to flex your software development muscles.

You’ll progress through the content to build proficiency in the concepts you need to begin to develop software at a more professional level.  

Up to 80% of all current software development jobs in the South African and international markets require at least either Python, Java or C#. As a programmer working in the 21st century, you are almost guaranteed to have to use one of these languages at some point in your career - if not from day one.  There’s no doubt you’ll be in demand with this starting language package.  Just try out a search on our Careers website for one of these languages to get a feel for the jobs out there.





1-on-1 mentor support for the duration of your course support, including live chat and code marking within 6 hours of assignment submission

Access to all course content , including hundreds of programming exercises and explanatory documents

Verified certificate on course completion, including post-course career support
A MicroDegree is a innovative new concept which goes beyond simply taking an online course. This certification is designed to get you the skills that employers believe are integral to get a job in software development. It focuses on learning by doing, and is typically comprised of 8 to 15 practical programming projects with hundreds of additional programming exercises and course content to support the skills needed to complete these projects.

All our MicroDegrees connect you with a 1:1 mentor, to which your practical programming projects are submitted for feedback. Your mentor works with you in real time to improve your code, solve programming exercises, and craft your learning path to match your intended career. Mentor support is available 24/7 online with face-to-face support offered in selected areas.
