The admission includes several steps:
1. Register at 42prague.com (5 Min)
2. Play two logic games (2-3 hours)
3. Meet us in an introduction meeting (1 hour)
4. Attend the Piscine (4-weeks)
The word “Piscine” is the French word for “swimming pool”: dive into the deep end of coding, and learn how to swim - together with your peers. The Piscine is a four week long trial period. During the Piscine, you will discover the basics of coding from scratch. No prerequisites of any kind are needed: no previous degrees, no coding experience. This period will be very intensive and requires commitment. There is no fixed number of applicants to be selected. This means there is no competition between applicants and anyone can be selected. We see it as a test run to see whether you and 42 spirit are a good fit.
Everything except Piscine can be done from home. Below are the steps to register:
1. Registration. Online.
2. Logic games. Online.
3. Introductory meeting: only possible after successful completion of the logic games. Online or on campus.
4. Piscine. Registration is possible only after attending the introductory meeting. Held physically in Prague on our campus.
It is possible to manage the Piscine with small commitments. However, it won’t be easy to manage with activities that take up a lot of your time. If you are unable to commit to the 4 weeks when you sign up for the Piscine, you can always try to register for another date.
As everyone else, we have to stick to current law and restrictions, which are always changing. Here's our rule of thumb for the steps in the admission process: 1. Registration: always possible, always online. 2. Logic games: possible after registration, always online. 3. Introduction meeting: registration only possible after the successful completion of logic games. 4. Piscine: registration possible after participation in the introduction meeting. The Piscines are designed to be on-site in Prague.
We announce the results of the piscine 2 weeks after the end of each Piscine. Each candidate gets an email with their results. Stay tuned!
A Piscine helps the candidate and the 42 team to assess who will benefit from the 42 learning model. If you don’t pass the Piscine, you can apply one just one more time after one year (365 days). If you do not pass the Piscine, do not be discouraged - there are many other ways to learn coding.
What a pleasure! For a personal visit you need to write to our email so that we can count on you. Write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Two Piscines are planned for 2023, in June and September. Follow-up studies for successful June applicants will start on August 14th or October 16th, applicants from the September Piscine will start their studies only on October 16th.
Discovery Piscine is a 5-day course that focuses on the basics of web development. It's completely free and anyone can attend by registering for the relevant term and you don't even need to be registered for 42 Prague.
Piscine, by contrast, is a 4-week bootcamp on the C programming language and is part of the selection process for future study. To participate in Piscine, an applicant must successfully complete online logic games and attend an introduction meeting.
Registration for Discovery Piscine is via Eventbrite. So if you see that we have Discovery Piscine available, you can sign up for free.
