Founder, Invibed
Danielle Pascarella, GA NYC

“I knew nothing about web development and I had no idea where to begin. My teacher was able to break down a concept that was completely foreign to me so that I could understand it easily. He also really helped me a ton with my final project, which was building a prototype for invibed.com. Best of all, the part-time program was flexible enough to fit in with my busy work schedule."

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are front-end web development skills relevant today?

Literacy in web development basics is in demand across a range of industries, including design, marketing, and product development. According to a recent Burning Glass report, “Our analysis of 26 million U.S. online job postings showed that jobs that required coding skills not only paid more, but also were growing more rapidly than the job market itself.” These opportunities aren’t limited to those with formal computer science training — employers want skills, not degrees.

Which format should I take this course in — on campus or online?

It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home. If you don’t live near a GA campus, have a busy travel schedule, or just want to save yourself the commute, a Remote course could be a good option for you, if available in your market. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.

If you prefer to learn alongside your peers and can make it to campus, our in-person courses allow you to take advantage of our beautiful classrooms and workspaces.

Our Admissions team can advise you on the best format for your personal circumstances and learning style.

What is the remote experience at GA?

Engage in live, online, project-based learning that’s designed to transform your career — from anywhere. Powered by Zoom, the major video conferencing tool, and the collaborative messaging platform Slack, our interactive classroom mirrors what you’ll encounter as part of the modern workforce.

You’ll be able to not only share your screen and present your work to classmates but also collaborate in small groups via breakout rooms. Additionally, you can revisit recordings of class sessions in the future.

Beyond class hours, get guidance, feedback, technical assistance, and more during frequent one-on-one check-ins and office hours.
 

Can I work full-time while enroled in this course?

Yes! All of our evening and 1-week courses are designed for busy professionals with full-time work commitments. Depending on your location, classes meet twice per week in the evenings or all day on Saturday. If you’re able to dedicate a full week to learning, we also have a full-time, accelerated 1-week option. Please keep in mind that our remote course is live online, which means that if you take the accelerated programme, you’ll be connected live with your instructor and classmates the whole day.

You’ll be expected to spend time working on homework and projects outside of class each week, but the workload is designed to be manageable with a full-time job.

If you need to miss a session or two, we offer resources to help you catch up. We recommend you discuss any planned absences with your instructor.

In what language is this programme taught?

Our courses will be delivered in two ways:

  • Fully in English 

  • In French, with English materials 

Please check with the Admissions team to confirm which is true of your course of interest and what is relevant for your situation. In both cases, if you are not native speaker, a CEFR level of B2 or a TOEFL score of 90 is recommended. (Review this self-assessment grid in English.)

What are my financing options?

We offer a variety of different financing options, including instalment plans, so you can focus on what counts — your education. Plus, more than 45% of our part-time students receive full or partial tuition reimbursement from their employers. Speak with our Admissions team to learn more and find the best fit for you and your finances.

Our programme is currently not eligible for governmental funds in France such as CPF, however, we are working to become eligible in the future. 

The “Compte personnel de formation” (i.e., “personal training account’”) was created in order to provide training opportunities throughout an employee’s professional life in France, encouraging everyone to undertake training or study throughout their working life until retirement age.

The CPF is made available to employees working in the private sector, as well as job-seekers and youth who are entering the world of work (at 15- or 16-years-old) exclusively in France.

However, do not hesitate to contact your company to find out if it can utilise its personal funds to help you finance training, or contact your National Job Centre (Pôle Emploi) advisor if you are a job-seeker. Indeed, many structures in France such as your region, Pôle Emploi, or AGEFIPH can help you finance your training. Your job-seeker advisor at Pôle Emploi will be able to direct you toward these different systems or offer you Individual Training Assistance (AIF).
 

General Assembly is registered on the DataDock database and therefore meets the quality requirements set by French law.

Are GA’s courses accessible for people with disabilities?

GA can provide access to its courses for people with disabilities. Please contact our Admission team to discuss your needs and learn how we could support you throughout your learning journey.
