Education Two Years
Yes, that is correct South Africa’s coding college is looking for students for 2019. And it is correct the course is free. You will study for free for two years after you qualified for the program.
There is a rigorous application process to make sure that you will be a suitable candidate for the two-year program.
The Cost Of Education
With the Fees Must Fall protest a few years back and the rising cost of education I must say I am in awe of this initiative. I only hope that this is something that can carry on for many years. I hope this kind of program inspires other Organisations, Corporations, and Governments to look at making education free for the younger generation.
If your parents do not have the funds for university education then take a look at this course.

I have studied a bit of coding. It is not that hard. There is just a lot to remember and if you cannot remember it all the code is always on the internet. Solving a problem can be tricky and it takes a bit of brainpower to come up with a solution. But if you understand how the code works then any problem can be solved eventually.
If you are interested in computers or the internet then give it a go you will never know until you tried it.
