Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the questions we receive most often:

I have zero programming experience. Is SE100 suitable for me?
Course Design

SE100 was designed specifically for people with zero programming knowledge. You should have no problems catching up with the class as our materials are well-organised for after-class review. Our ourses are also taught by experienced instructors and supported by teaching assistants who provide in-class and after-class support.

Student Experiences

A sizable majority of our past SE100 students had no programming background, and all of them not only managed to pass and are able to apply coding to build incredible web applications by the end of the course. Feel free to browse through some reviews given by past Heicoders students who have successfully graduated from our courses.

Is there any form of certification upon completing the course?
For payment could I make a deposit first, and complete the payment closer to the course’s commencement date?
I am keen on your class but can’t make it for one session. Is there a makeup class?
Makeups On Case By Case Evaluation

We strongly advocate for full attendance among students, yet we recognize that severe unforeseen events may occur. We will grant such students a one-time accommodation to attend a makeup session or a live stream of the recorded class.

For Learners Intending To Use Subsidies

If you are planning on using any subsidies (e.g. UTAP, IBF, SkillsFuture Credits), do note that these subsidies require learners to have at least 75% class attendance before you are eligible for subsidies.

Any difference between Windows and macOS laptops for students? Is one preferred?
Device Advice

Both Windows and Mac operating systems are suitable options, as previous students have successfully used them without significant problems. Approximately two weeks prior to the commencement of the course, we will distribute a detailed installation manual that includes tailored guidelines for both Mac and Windows users. Additionally, we recommend that students consider utilising external monitors for a more comfortable learning experience.

Will students be provided recorded sessions to revise the weekly lectures?
Lesson Recordings Are Provided

You are welcome to use the lesson recordings and materials for reference whenever you need a review of a particular lesson. Our Heicoders curriculum team takes great pride in documenting the class content thoroughly, so feel free to go through the lesson materials at your own pace. You could always reach out to your Teaching Assistants as well if you have questions outside of class.

I just registered for the course and am a NTUC Union member. How do I apply for the UTAP subsidy?

The UTAP subsidy is disbursed by NTUC to eligible students on a reimbursement basis. After completing the course, Heicoders students can then apply on the NTUC website for reimbursement, and upon approval they would usually receive a direct deposit from NTUC to their bank accounts within two to three weeks. You may find more details on the eligibility requirements and claims process on this NTUC UTAP website. On Heicoders’ end, we provide a PDF step-by-step guide on how to submit the claim to all students at the end of the course.
