You can absolutely apply for one of our online programs if you are not located in the U.S. Please remember that our online programs are live, meaning students must be online between the hours of 9am and 5pm EST.

Can I do this part time?
Not at the moment. Kenzie Academy offers a demanding learning program, students are required to commit to full-time participation. Learning how to code is learning a new language; devotion and immersion are required. Students with extensive life and work commitments outside of class would not be a fit for our full-time programs. We will be offering part-time non-career track programs in the future for students interested in learning to code but not yet ready to commit full-time towards the career track.
