Program


The entire program lasts for 16 weeks and is divided into two phases, the Prep and the Immersive. The Prep is an onsite final assessment that you are required to pass in order to be admitted into the Immersive phase. Only upon successful completion of the Prep will you be admitted to the Immersive phase where the fun begins. During this stage, you will be exposed to a variety of programming methods while working in a diverse group to enhance your teamwork experience. It is worth noting that the entire program is delivered in English only.

Preparation Course (PREP)


The Prep course is designed for you to test yourself and the potential of your abilities. During four weeks, on a six days a week basis, you will experience a slower version of the Immersive Course. Together, we will evaluate how fast you can learn and whether you have what it takes to understand and digest the basics of coding. If you successfully pass this course, you will be welcomed into the Immersive Course.


 

Immersive Course


This is the course that will make you shine like the diamond you already are. For a period of 3 months, you will spend at least 12 hours a day working with your colleagues using a technique known as pairing. In this method, you will be part of a two-person team. For a while, you will lead your teammate as they write the code. Then, your teammate will guide you as you write the code. Together, you will not only learn to code faster, but you will unlock the hidden powers of your brain by using collaborative problem solving, critical thinking and creativity.

Job Placement


During your Immersive phase, you will be taught how to develop your online presence and sharpen your interview skills with our experienced coaches. As your graduation nears, RBK will organize a career fair whereby companies will gather to introduce themselves to you and explain their technology and culture so you can have an idea of where you’d like to apply. Following your graduation, your code will be made available online for potential recruiters to see and assess. With your CV ready, your knowledge capital increased and your confidence high, our team will be on hand and assist you with your job hunt. RBK has partnered and developed trust with the top tech companies in Jordan and will send your credentials to the companies that best suit your abilities.

Tuition


The cost of the program is 5,700 JoD and is payable upon final approval for admission to the program. Although we offer scholarships as they become available, we also have understandings with financial institutions that are willing to grant you a loan which you can pay back comfortably when you start your first job. If we recommend you, your loan is guaranteed.

Loans


If you don’t have the financial resources to attend RBK’s Software Engineering program, we are here to help. For the first time in the Arab world, RBK has partnered with Societe Generale de Banque Jordan, an internationally recognized bank, to grant loans to RBK accepted students without collateral or a guarantor ! If you’re serious about changing your life, all you have to do is pass our entrance exam and we will recommend you for the loan. Not just that, you only start paying back 6 to 9 months AFTER you graduate. This will give you plenty of time to find a job and plan your life ahead.
