We have one of the strictest admissions processes in the world, which ensures your classmates are as talented as you are.

1. Intro Chat

After you’ve passed the admission challenge, we contact you to set up a first interview and introductory chat. The purpose of this call is to answer any questions you have about Codeworks, understand your background, and see if you’d be a good fit.

2. Tech Interview

If you proceed to the next step, a technical interview with instructors is next. Here we’ll test your programming knowledge, and see how quickly you absorb new concepts.

3. Coding Assignment

If you pass the two interviews, we’ll give you a coding assignment to be completed within a couple of weeks. Don’t worry, we’re not expecting perfection at this stage. We want to see how you work under your own steam and learn new concepts.

4. Enrollment

If your Coding Assignment is up to standard you’ll be officially admitted to the course. Now you just need to sign the contract and pay the deposit to secure your seat in the chosen cohort.

Bear in mind that on average it takes six weeks to complete the entire admissions process. 


See what some recent graduates from our Barcelona campus thought of their Codeworks experience



I did it, you can as well!

The course was exactly as described, intensive. They are serious when they say 12 hours a day.

The Barcelona campus is beautiful, spacious and safe. The Instructors and admission team are friendly and dedicated to making you succeed.

As my background is in nursing I was not sure if I would fit, manage or get hired. Codeworks gave me the tools and support necessary to succeed, and 5 weeks after graduation I was offered a position of Software Engineer in the company of my dreams.

This bootcamp changed my life

Codeworks is the best code academy in Barcelona.

The bootcamp follows an intense schedule in an environment where you will not only become a solid programmer, but you’ll also meet incredibly professional and friendly staff that will guide you, and be there for you every step of the way throughout your journey.

I recommend enrolling to anyone that is ready to switch careers and become a software developer.


Most visas for Spain require you to deal with your local Spanish embassy, and the requirements vary depending on your nationality and location.

We recommend getting in touch with your local Spanish embassy to get the most up-to-date information.

Yes, speak to our Campus Lead and they’ll show you how to access the bike storage.

On your first day you’ll be given a code which will give you 24/7 access to the campus for the duration of your course.

Of course! Get in touch with our Admissions team and they’ll organise a campus tour for you.

Barcelona is one of the most affordable cities in Europe compared to average salaries. You will be able to find a short-term apartment rental for around €600 a month, less if you are willing to share.

You can see the cost of living in Barcelona, and compare it to your current location here.

Take your first steps
