What does the program cost?

To secure your spot you must make payment in advance at the time you are accepted into the program before your first day of class. The amount of this is €750,- (excl. VAT)

The BSSA is a partnership between B. Building Business and Experis, in which Experis is pre-financing your course. During the program you will be provided with knowledge and tools to make you feel more secure during application processes and to enlarge your professional network. Once you have been hired you determine how you will pay the remaining costs of your education.

There are several ways in which this could take place:

Option 1: Training costs will be covered by Experis (or partner labels) after being accepted for a position at one of these organizations.

Option 2: When you get hired by a company outside of the network of Experis, the education costs should be covered by this company.

At BSSA we aim to bridge the gap between educational institutions and the industry. We are aiming to fulfill this mission by making programs that teach young talented and motivated people technical skills demanded by the industry accessible for a wider public. Therefore, we ask the industry for an investment in our talent. Regarding this investment, we always take the company size and growth stage into consideration.

Our program consists of a full-time intensive course of three months followed by a full-time position of six months to put the skills you have learned into practice and continue learning while working. We value this construction a lot since we think that this contributes the most to your growth. If you decide not to participate in the whole 9-month program, the cost of the course will be at your expense.

When does the next program start?

The next program will start Fall 2019. You can apply by filling in the application form. Interested in later programs? No problem! Fill in the form and we will get back to you with updates about programs in the future.

Meet our alumni



Fullstack webdevelopment

"I always had an interest in tech, but other than my CU2 account I did not have any experience in coding whatsoever when I started at BSSA. Now I think working on the back-end is most fun. It sounds simple but it takes solid coding skills. It was really exciting to be able to do that. Overall I think this is a great career change for me to pursue!"



Fullstack webdevelopment

"The internet has lots to offer regarding learning how to code yourself. I tried and failed a lot. Practicing every day I reached a certain skill level in about a month. After that, I didn’t think I could improve any more by myself. Then I stumbled upon the BSSA. I loved coding there! Honestly, I can’t stop doing it. Almost daily you need to hand in an assignments, which is good because it keeps you sharp and helped me to learn really fast."



Fullstack webdevelopment

"I wanted a new challenge, something finicky, something I had to struggle for. I wanted to learn a hard skill and it needed to be a skill that gave me some freedom, because I have a lot of ambitions. Learning to code at BSSA is quite intense, but a lot of fun! It is a community kind of feel, I feel a lot of camaraderies. And I rediscovered an old passion of me which is math. It’s just a lot of fun to have these problems and solve them – like coding! I think a lot of people would like this."

“BSSA was a great environment to improve my programming skills and their network was really useful to find a great job where I could continue to develop myself. A lot of people try to figure coding out by themselves, but it goes so much faster in a classroom with classmates who are all focussed to become great coders."
