The approximately seven-month course is designed around a combination of independent work – through required readings, video content, and practical exercises – and two weekly lessons where students have the chance to ask questions and review exercises and materials as a group. If you are a refugee/migrant, can dedicate 7 months (30hs/week), live in or close to Madrid and already know how to use a computer, this is your opportunity!

What we teach

About RefugeesCode

We are a nonprofit organisation that teaches coding for free to refugees and migrants. The volunteer RefugeesCode instructors are highly qualified professionals with experience working in Spain’s and Madrid’s tech scene and are therefore uniquely positioned to offer real-world insights into getting a job in this industry.

Students will also have access to complimentary masterclasses throughout the course to deepen their understanding of what’s happening in the world of tech.

And we are happy to are announce that our upcoming course at the end of 2022 will be sponsored by our new partner, Lenovo Spain.
