Interested in Coding? Career College May Be Your Best Option

August 26, 2021 | British Columbia

The tides are changing for people seeking education for a career in the tech industry. People can break out in the industry without a traditional four-year degree. This recent Maclean’s article explains it all.


University is still the best option for those who already know they want to dive headfirst into coding and development. For others who have no previous experience and want to try it out, boot camps are a great option. For those who are highly motivated and can keep themselves accountable, online, self-directed courses are an alternative. Finally, for people who don’t have four years to spend, are serious about a career in coding and development, and need more support than what is offered from a boot camp, a career college is the right place to start.


Students get the best of both worlds at a career college because programs are usually under two years long. Career college grads can get a foot in the door as a developer quickly and with the right portfolio. After graduation, there’s an opportunity to continue learning as well.
