Hear from some of our Software Engineering course graduates

“My qualification with Academy Xi has left me feeling less at risk – upskilling is one of the best ways to keep your tech contribution relevant and valuable. It’s also given me the confidence to follow through with my own software designs.”
Barry Nguyen
Software Engineering Transform
“I’ve deeply enjoyed the Software Engineering Transform course. I highly recommend this course to anyone who has decided to be job-ready in this field. My mentor has been an immense help throughout my learning process, as he’s always been willing to help, even after long live sessions or weekends when there’s no need to. The staff frequently asks for feedback, which makes me think they’re always looking for improvements, and that’s a good sign.”
Harold Torres Marino
Software Engineering Transform
“The content that Academy Xi provided is up-to-date and very easy to follow. Also, there are plenty of coding exercises that give you a firm grasp of programming. My tutor, Albert, is really skillful and helpful. He makes an effort to communicate with us often and focuses on what we struggle to understand. I would highly recommend taking a Full Stack development course with Academy Xi. I studied programming by myself for a couple of months before I took the course and wish I knew about it before!”
