    Frequently Asked Questions About Full-Stack Development Course

    Here are the questions we receive most often:

    I have zero programming experience. Is SE200 suitable for me?
    Course Design

    SE200 is an intermediate-level web development course which requires learners to have already gone through the prerequisite course – SE100. Alternatively, learners who already have experience in software engineering can seek a waiver for SE100 by speaking to our admin.

    Student Experiences

    Learners with no background in software engineering who completed SE100 generally found the subsequent SE200 course to be within their capabilities. In fact, all of them could build their own full-stack web application by the end of SE200. Feel free to browse through some reviews given by past Heicoders students who have successfully graduated from our courses.

    If I choose not to take SE100 and start with SE200, what are the prerequisites needed?
    Zero Experience

    For SE200, software engineering is a prerequisite, as there will no longer be any focus on HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React fundamentals from SE200 onwards. We’ll focus heavily on software engineering principles, industrial web application frameworks and more advanced data wrangling from SE200 onwards, so familiarity with software engineering concepts taught in SE100 are helpful for keeping up with the class.

    Software Engineering Background

    We would recommend that you proceed with SE200 if you have taken a software engineering course elsewhere and are comfortable working with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React. For students in this category, we would offer direct support to help you bridge the necessary requirements in preparation for SE200, in the form of learning materials and installation instructions to help get you set up and ready for the class.

    Is there any form of certification upon completing the course?
    Can I take both SE100 and SE200 concurrently?
    General Advice

    The SE100 and SE200 curricula are designed to be taken in sequence in that SE200 students are expected to have the prerequisite software engineering fundamentals covered in SE100. Therefore, students without any software engineering or programming background are strongly encouraged to take the SE100 course before enrolling in SE200.

    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 recognise 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 being 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 Full-Stack Developer course and am an 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 Full-Stack Development 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.
