On-demand human code review
We go beyond a traditional coding bootcamp: our mentors review your code when you want and are available every single day.

No getting stuck

With code review at your fingertips, no getting stuck with frustrating error messages or managing your schedule around a mentor.

Write code like a pro

A computer can't tell you when you when there's a more efficient approach to your problem, or when your code doesn't meet quality and structure standards. Your Hyperion mentor can ensure you learn how to write code that is of the same quality as developers working in industry.

Complete your course

Our educational model is proven to work. Your mentor will build a personal relationship with you - even tailoring course content to your interests - ensuring you master your chosen interests in tech.

Frequently Asked Questions

More details on our courses, our trainers and pricing.

What support is offered as part of a course?

Hyperion's courses can be taken with or without mentor support. Mentor support can be purchased on a monthly basis. With an active mentor support subscription, you receive written feedback on your submitted code and assignments as part of any of our online courses in as fast as a few minutes. Rather than waiting for a set mentor support session or call - you choose when to submit your work via our online learning platform allowing you maximum flexibility around your learning schedule. You also gain access to priority live chat and email support with our mentor team and weekly tutorial session calls.

Are your courses recognised?

Yes. All Hyperion’s courses and MicroDegrees are recognised by international bodies that have the most weight for that specific course. For example, our MicroDegrees and courses that teach the Python programming language are supported by the Python Software Foundation. Hyperion has partnered with organisations such as Google, The University of Cambridge, The Computer Science Association of South Africa, Oracle, and the South African Department of Education to ensure the highest quality standards and recognition of our courses.

How likely am I to get employed after taking a MicroDegree?

High. Hyperion runs the only platform that connections software developers to companies across Southern Africa - Hyperion Careers. . Once you graduate from one of our courses, Your 1:1 trainer will work with you to create a developer CV & profile on the site and refer your profile to the hundreds of companies hiring on our platform. The demand for software developers has never been higher and our graduates have gone on to work as software developers across Southern Africa. Read some of their success stories here.

How relevant are the skills taught in your courses?

Hyperion’s courses are developed by experienced software developers who have previously worked at organisations such as Google, and our course content development is directed by a team based at the University of Cambridge in the UK. We train cutting edge software development skills in languages such as Python, Django. Our courses cover topics and technologies not taught elsewhere in Southern Africa, and one of the reasons we created these courses is to align software development skills in the region to more international standards. That’s also why Google has chosen Hyperion as their education partner for South Africa - Hyperion leads Computer Science & software development training in the region.

What is the time commitment to take a MicroDegree?

An average of 8 hours per week should be devoted to complete a MicroDegree. However, MicroDegrees are set up in an extremely flexible way so that you can take as long as you need. Your support on the course and access to training materials will continue on a per month fee. You can keep extending your course time by purchasing additional months to take as long as you need to complete all the materials and gain the qualification.

How experienced are your trainers?

Our trainers are experts in the courses they trainer. All our trainers hold university degrees in Computer Science & software development, and have decades of collective experience from institutions such as Google, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Oxford. They are hand selected by hundreds of applicants and are chosen not just for their technical knowledge, but ability to train and form a connection with you to help you graduate from your course.

Can my employer pay for a course?

Yes. Simply email with any additional forms you need filled out to have the course fees billed directly to your employer by our sales consultants.

How is payment for courses structured and are there any discounts?

Our courses require a deposit to be paid up front, and then a fixed monthly fee while you are on the course. This fee can be cancelled at any time. It is also possible to pay the deposit for a course and the 3 month fixed fee up front. With this option, you’ll receive a 25% discount on the total payment. Discounts are offered during promotion sales so stay on the lookout for any specials.

Are your courses suitable for first-time or experienced programmers?

We have a range of courses for people with different backgrounds. Visit and use the ‘Skill level’ filter to find an appropriate course. For example, our Intro to Programming MicroDegree is perfect for people with absolutely no background in programming, whilst our Full Stack Developer MicroDegree would be appropriate for someone with some programming experience.
