Primetime Education

A part-time program to meet your full-time goal.

Learn 5-9 and Change Up Your 9-5

Prime is launching a new part-time, remote format for our Full Stack Software Engineering Program.This new format will take the existing curriculum that’s helped over 1,000 people start careers in software engineering, and distribute it across a 28-week remote schedule. Each week will require about 20 hours of work.

In our first 6 years of operations, we’ve heard from hundreds of prospective students who were eager to start careers in tech, but whose commitments (full-time work, family, etc.) meant that a “traditional” full-time weekday schedule wouldn’t work for them. Building on the experience graduating 60 cohorts of software engineers and informed by our experience with remote study during the pandemic, we have developed a part-time program that we believe is a great fit for students who can’t commit to a full-time program.

We're accepting applications now! If you think a part-time, evening program may be the best way for you to break into the software business, start your application today!

What Does Part-Time Study Look Like?

Even with a part time schedule, Prime is a big commitment. You should expect to spend on average about 20 hours a week between classes and homework on top of any other work or family obligations. Check out what a typical week in part-time study at Prime looks like:

Weekly Class Lectures

Twice a week on Monday and Wednesday we'll have instructor-led live video classes in the evening covering technical content and career development.

Group Work Sessions

Once a week you'll sign up for one of the six 2-3 hour collaboration sessions with peers from your cohort and work together on assignments and projects.

Study Group & 1:1 Time

Outside the curriculum, you can sign up for 1:1 time with the instructor or attend the weekly study group to get help from staff and peers if you're struggling.

When do we start?

Our first part time cohort will launch in July. We haven’t officially opened applications up yet, but you are welcome to start an application now and get a jump start on the technical challenge and other admissions hurdles and we’ll let you know when the systems are ready for you to submit your application.

Tuition

Tuition for the new format cohorts will be the same as tuition for the existing program at $16,000. We expect that the same scholarships, grants and financing options available for the full time program will apply to the part time option.
