About Event

There are Software Engineering Scholarships available for eligible South Australian residents.

The 12-Week Full-Time Software Engineering Immersive course runs from 3 April - 29 June 2023 and is designed to give you the skills and support needed to land a great job in tech. It features expert instruction, one-on-one career coaching and job search support to get you hired.

We believe there should be no barriers to accessing high-quality education that helps people build a meaningful career. General Assembly is proud to partner with Forte and the South Australian government to offer the 12-Week Full-Time Software Engineering Immersive (which usually costs $15,500) at no cost for students. You do not need to have tech experience to apply.

Break into Software Engineering
Despite popular myths, you can become a software engineer without a uni degree in Computer Science. Whether you’re entering the workforce or looking for a career switch, becoming a software engineer is definitely within your grasp—as long as you’re willing to put in the hard work.

This event will give you a chance to meet the General Assembly & Forte teams, learn how to break into Software Engineering (… even if you don’t have a uni degree!) and what it takes to get your foot in the door and hired as a software engineer.

Come and hear from our panel of experts who work on software day in, day out. They will share insights around their decision to step into the world of coding, how they used their new skills to transition their career or level-up in their current role, navigating the opportunities for software engineers and much more!
