Be part of Northcoders Digital Community

Northcoders isn’t just a coding school but a digital community with an inclusive and supportive learning environment. Northcoders’ code is to always put people first where students find empathy and humility above all else. 


As a part of their commitment to inclusivity, Northcoders now invests in you. Consistent with its commitment to access and its belief in the value of the education it provides, Northcoders has partnered with StepEx to introduce affordable Payment Plans. 

Key Features of Payment Plan

Interest-Free Payment Plan: With this agreement you can make timely monthly payments to cover your tuition fees without incurring any interest charges. The total amount you repay is the same as the upfront tuition fee amount (excluding the set-up charge). While administrative fees may be imposed for missed payments, no interest will be added to the outstanding amount.


Please see below the qualifying courses and terms of the student offer for each of them. 


Details of Your Payment Plan

Repayments are set at an equal monthly amount over your repayment period, other than your first repayment which may be higher to account for a course reservation fee or arrangement fee. Evenly spread over 24 months, with a total value equal to the tuition fee charge plus the setup costs and platform fee, with no interest added.
