Apply & Learn at the Devugees Refugee Coding School

We want to help you find a new perspective for your life:  Become a Junior Web-Developer within 12 months maximum, ready to take on a job in the Berlin startup-scene, a professional field which opens new doors all over the world. Because as Web-Developer you have the opportunity to work international. You find all information about our project and the application here.


The course contents

The course is shaped modular and adapted to your profile. The more experience you have, the less modules you have to pass. You learn together in classes and on the basis of practice projects how to plan and program web and mobile applications. At the same time you develop your own profile which you can use to apply for companies afterwards. In addition, you pass a three-month internship in a company which provides insights into the everydaylife of a Web-Developer. Furthermore we impart the needed technical German language to you whereby you can improve your German if needed.


The equipment

All participants of Devugees receive a workplace with a computer. We provide spaces for work, study and mutual exchange. If you want to repeat learning content on your own you can use your access to an online course.


The support

We do not leave our participants on their own. All participants receive support from mentors (buddies) who have some expertise in their fields: Experienced Web-Developers with many years of experience in programming. Your buddy shares his knowledge with you in individual lessons, supports you in your development process and connects you with usefull contacts. Furthermore, we strengthen your level of knowledge with steady training sessions and practical tests to guarantee your learning success.


So you can find a job that you love – which gives you the freedom to live and work wherever you want!

The requirements - What you should bring

Nerds wanted

The entire training focuses on technology and internet. You should therefore be highly interested and knowledgeable in these areas. Initial experience in programming is an advantage, but it is not a requirement. Also useful is if you have completed a technical training (e.g. engineering).


But: More important than all your previous knowledge is your motivation and ambition. If you are willing to study and work several hours a day to achieve your goal, then this is the right place for you.  



Devugees is your chance – and it means hard work: Nobody becomes a web developer overnight. This course is interactive and requires hard work and commitment. You need passion that drives you. Drives you to go beyond the limits of your knowledge to make you a professional web developer. You can become anything you want – we will help you with that!


Your background 

This project currently focuses in particular on people who had to flee their homeland because of war or personal danger and who are now looking for opportunities in Germany to shape a new future for themselves and their families. Of course we are also happy to welcome you if your are no refugee but willing to start together with refugees in a team into your new future as Web-Developer.
