Attend 28 day Piscine
The Piscine is an intensive 4-week Bootcamp where you learn coding, teamwork, and about 42. It is the most challenging part of the process. You will be immersed into an environment where you are driven to research and share knowledge to solve problems you do not (yet) know how to solve. It is intense, amazing and unforgettable experience and after this month you know for sure whether 42 is for you.
Start your studies
Congratulations! If you mastered the Piscine, you can join 42 and your free education. At 42 your first projects are designed to build on the knowledge that you have acquired during the Piscine and start you on your way to your writing your future in code.
