Some of our upcoming courses in London can be followed remotely. After you complete your application, the admission manager will be in touch shortly to give you all the necessary information.
Our web development course in London is an immersive experience that takes you from beginner to junior software developer in 9 weeks. At the end of the course, you will know how to build a robust and user-friendly app that answers your users' needs, and to follow the right workflow to collaborate with other developers, designers and product managers.
Our web development course is designed to make you learn to code step by step, until you can build your own web applications from scratch.
Our Web Development Course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete the PrepWork on our custom-built platform before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 60 hours and gives our students a basic knowledge of:
Work with the right developer tools and workflow. Learn the basics of the command line, use a code text editor and install Ruby with a version management tool. Get familiar with most useful developer packages and learn how to version your code with git and push it on Github.
Write programs manipulating variables, loops, conditions and data structures (Array and Hash). Detect text patterns with Regular Expressions and start parsing data from structured files (CSV, JSON, XML, HTML) fetched using web-scraping or by building requests to JSON APIs.
Structure your software following Object-Oriented principles. Learn the Model-View-Controller pattern in-depth (most common application design pattern) by coding several MVC softwares from scratch. You will have to code everything on your own, even simulating your database storing data in CSV files.
Learn to design a relational database schema and to build structured queries to your database with SQL. Build simple CRUD queries (Create, Read, Update, Delete) or advanced JOIN queries. Learn to connect your database to your ruby software with an ORM (Object Relational Mapping) called Active Record.
Build your web pages following atomic design principles and code your own UI kit of web components & layouts by applying the latest CSS techniques. Build pages with an adaptive design thanks to media queries and learn to quickly prototype a web app with Bootstrap 4.0 and its responsive grid system.
Wrap it all together by coding your first Ruby on Rails applications. Deploy your applications in production & start coding “the Rails way”. Go deep into Rails discovering advanced concepts like nested resources, namespaces, or how to refactor an app with services or to build an API with Rails.
Code a clone of Airbnb from scratch in 5 days. You will work in teams to learn to collaborate on Github using pull requests and deploy your apps on Heroku, using the same workflow as successful startups. Implement advanced features (payment, image upload, search, geocoding, background jobs, etc…) and learn to cover your code with tests.
Projects Phase is the ultimate experience of the course: invent, pitch, design, code and deploy an original project in teams of 3 or 4 people during the two final weeks. You will have to go through all the process from the idea to the live app in production on a real domain name, ready to be tested on the market!
We help our students find a job by preparing them for technical interviews, organising job fairs, startup office hours and coaching sessions with tech recruiters and alumni. We have helped our 10,636+ graduates find their dream job!
After the bootcamp, all our alumni get access to Le Wagon’s one-week online extension training in React.js and Redux. A very useful course for our students who want to go deeper in front-end development or apply to front-end developer jobs.
Our alumni keep a lifelong access to our online platform with 300+ challenges, 100+ hours of video lessons to re-watch any time after the bootcamp, 100+ live-codes and tutorials on real-life developer examples and 900+ flashcards to rehearse core concepts.
Our 10,636+ alumni discuss every day on Le Wagon’s Slack channels after the course, getting help from our 900+ teachers, sharing tips, resources, code snippets, job offers and news from their products. An engaged and passionate tech community, all over the world.
You don’t realise how much you’re learning until you’re suddenly building entire web apps! I absolutely recommend Le Wagon to anyone who wants to learn to code without hesitation.
The curriculum helped me in so many ways: I can read code, understand what is happening, know what good code is compared to bad code. I communicate with developers from a project management point of view, I know what good design is and more!
I was taken aback by how slick the entire setup was. Their teaching platform (called Kitt) is hands down one of the most well designed and impressive sites I have ever seen. I can honestly say, it’s been one of the best decisions of my entire life.
From morning lectures to evening talks, every day is action-packed.
Grab a coffee and start every morning with an engaging & interactive lecture, before putting what you’ve learnt into practice.
Pair up with your buddy for the day, and work on a series of programming challenges with the help of our teaching staff.
Learning to code is very intense, so it’s important to take a break and relax during our yoga classes, which run at least once a week.
Review the day’s challenges and get an overview of upcoming lessons during live code sessions.
Be inspired and get priceless advice from successful entrepreneurs invited for exclusive talks.
During our web development course in London, you learn the essentials of programming while building your own web applications. As a result, you end up the course with a rich Github portfolio containing at least two fully-functional web applications - an Airbnb-like marketplace and your own final project.

Since day one, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make one an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed, experienced teachers.

Le Wagon definitely helped advance my knowledge of web development fundamentals. The teaching staff are always happy to help and genuinely care about your success. It’s a great environment to learn and I really enjoyed the experience.
I felt very well supported throughout the program and the teachers are so passionate - they want you to ask questions and give you time & attention. It feels like a “modern MBA”, because you have access to lifelong learning, events & alumni network.
The best thing about the experience at Le Wagon is definitely the Teachers and TA Team, they're amazing. I trusted the process and let Le Wagon carry me through databases, front end, ruby on rails, and then onto independent projects.
The teachers know the industry and the programs you will work with inside and out and the TA's are just like you but with a couple months more experience! It's really re-assuming. They did the same bootcamp and can relate to you really easily.
Our web development course is just the beginning of the journey. Once you graduate, you belong to a global community and have access to our online platform to keep learning and growing.
Get tips and advice from professional developers, access exclusive job and freelance opportunities, find support for your project launch.
Access our online education platform at any time after the web development course, with lectures, screencasts, flashcards and challenges.
Benefit from advanced tutorials in software development to push your computer science skills further and keep on learning and practicing after the bootcamp.
Receive unique job and freelance opportunities from Le Wagon's alumni who work as developers, product managers and entrepreneurs in successful tech companies all over the world.
Le Wagon opened my eyes to a creative world I didn’t know existed, it introduced me to the process of collaboratively building a real-life end product, working in a team of bright and inspiring people that I now call friends.
We were given LinkedIn & CV’s workshops to boost our employability, Trust me, I had a zero confidence & impostor syndrome. 6 days later I had a great job! I’m still turning down interviews. Just 3 months ago I couldn’t get responses, it’s nuts!
Our learning was enriched by a busy program of talks, lectures, and events which aimed to educate us about the inner workings of the world of tech. I led one of the interview talks with the Founder of Entrepreneur First, and got a job there after!
A week after finishing the bootcamp, I was offered two full-time Ruby dev roles, and have just started as a junior developer at Purr Digital, building Rails apps for clients! Hands down, applying at Le Wagon has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
Once the web development course ends, you benefit from our career services. We help you prepare for tech interviews, meet the best recruiters and connect with relevant alumni.

Our London campus re-opened on Monday 12th April, therefore we are offering on campus learning for all Full-Time students and the option to learn remotely during the week and on campus on Saturdays for our Part-Time students.
We have been running Hybrid Bootcamps in London since summer last, where students can decide if they want to learn either on campus, fully remotely, or do a mixture of on campus and remote learning.
We are closely following all advice from the UK Government regarding the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, and we have strict safety rules in place for those who choose to learn in person.
We have both internal and external processes to help you kick-start your career in Tech after the Bootcamp, including:
Career Week. The week after the bootcamp finishes, we organise a structured Career Week for all graduates. During this week, we organise workshops, talks and masterclasses on creating the perfect CV, updating their LinkedIn, searching for jobs, how to master technical interviews, tackling tech tests and more to help our graduates kickstart their job search, freelancing career or bringing an MVP to market and launching their startup.
We host a Monthly Alumni Stand-up, where we introduce graduates to new hiring partners, and share experiences and resources among our alumni.
Graduates can book in time to speak 1:1 with our Talent Manager, Laura, for ongoing career support anytime during and after the bootcamp. She’ll help you with anything you need, from how to tackle your job search, preparing for interviews, managing offers and salary negotiation, to finding co-founders and fundraising.
We run Events throughout the bootcamp giving you the chance to build your network and discover the London Tech scene. We also host Alumni Discussion Panels, where you can hear about the experience of recent graduates after the bootcamp and get tips on your future career plans.
You will get access to online tools hosted on our learning platform, including hands-on tech-test training and additional learning resources, such as our Intro course to React.
You will also remain part of our Slack community, where new job opportunities are posted on a daily basis.
The application process consists of the following steps:
-- Online application available using this link
-- Online interview with our London Admissions team
-- Web Development Bootcamps: Complete this Ruby track within 1 week of your interview
-- Data Science Bootcamps: Complete our online Maths & Python Assessment
-- We will then review your application as a team and let you know if you have been successful in being accepted onto the Bootcamp!
We start Bootcamps every quarter, and open applications about 4 months in advance of the start date. We don't have a hard deadline for applications, it just depends on when spaces fill up, usually around 1 month before the start date.
Our Web Development Bootcamp is designed for people with no technical background, which means not having previous coding experience would not impact your ability to complete the course. What our students have in common is a strong willingness to build actionable Tech skills in a short period of time and a desire to learn alongside like-minded people.
Our Data Science Bootcamp requires people to already have strong skills in Maths, and fundamental coding skills in Python.
Motivation and full commitment are the main selection criteria for both bootcamps — as we’ve realised these are the two essential ingredients necessary to turn the Bootcamp experience into a success, no matter your background or previous experience!
People from all kinds of backgrounds join our bootcamps. Aged from 18 - 60, from recent school leavers and University Graduates, to people who have worked 20+ years in completely different fields, including lawyers, hospitality workers, doctors, academics, nurses, teachers, olympians, bankers, engineers, public sector workers and everything in between.
Graduates go on to work as Software Engineers, Back End Developers, Full Stack Developers, Front End Developers, UX Designers, Product Managers, Technology Consultants, Heads of Engineering, CTOs, Data Analysts, Data Engineers, Data Scientists, Data Product Managers, Business Intelligence Analysts, Technical Project Managers, Venture Capitalists and more!
Check out some of our Graduate Stories.
Some of our Graduates go into freelancing and many have gone down the entrepreneurial route, building their own products and founding their own companies.
You can check out some of the companies founded by our Alumni here.
Our Part-Time Bootcamps cover the exact same content, line for line, as our Full-Time Bootcamps. The 24-week format is designed to fit around a full time job.
There are three live sessions per week:
-- Tuesday & Thursday evenings from 6.30pm to 9.30pm
-- Saturdays all day from 10.00am to 5.00pm
In addition to these three mandatory weekly live sessions, there are two 1.5 hour lectures to watch online ahead of the Tuesday and Saturday sessions. In total, it is a 15 hour per week commitment.
You can find a detailed description of the course schedule and curriculum on our dedicated pages by selecting the Part-Time course option.
Candidate profiles are very similar to Full-Time candidates, which means we have a mix of career changers, aspiring engineers and developers, project managers and entrepreneurs, among others.
