What is Front-End Web Development Programme?

Front-end developers are the architects of websites and apps. Your job is to make ideas and designs come to life.

The first 8 weeks are ALX Foundations, where you will learn critical communication, leadership, and career development skills that will help you thrive in the digital workforce.

You’ll then learn how to code in HTML, CSS, and Javascript through hands-on projects that push you to design user-friendly websites. Your capstone project is to publish your own fully-functional website on GitHub.

This programme is designed to take you from novice to job-ready in 6 months.

ALX had a profound impact on my career development. The programme exceeded my expectations in every way. Within weeks of graduating and implementing some of the learnt strategies, I began to get invitations for interviews, one of which has translated into my current job.”

You will not receive a refund if you are unable to complete the programme, however you will be able to defer to a later cohort. Please note that the deferment cut-off date is at the end of week 2 of your programme. After this date you will not be able to select to defer and will be considered as having dropped out of your programme. If you do decide to defer to another cohort, you will not be required to pay the administration fee again.

NB. Please note that deferment is not possible for learners in Data Science.

You will be able to defer your participation in 2024. You have two options:

    If you defer BEFORE before confirming your enrollment and completing your administration fee, your fee will roll over to the next cohort and you will need to complete payment upon completing your 2-month Foundations module.
    If you defer AFTER you have confirmed enrollment and paid some or all of your administration fee, your place will roll over to the next cohort and you will NOT need to pay the full administration fee again. Please note that the deferment cut off date for Tech Lite Cohorts is at the end of week 2 of your programme. After this date you will not be able to select to defer and will be considered as having dropped out of your programme.
