That is why we are developing a special Competence Framework for our study programs. This framework encompasses the main competencies you can acquire while studying at CODE. Each competency is structured with eight different proficiency levels, with each level building on and incorporating the levels beneath.
At level zero you will not have any proficiency, while level six represents the proficiency we expect from a bachelor’s student at the time of their final exam. And even though it will not be expected from a bachelor’s student, we won’t discourage you from reaching for levels seven and eight.
All proficiency levels are aligned with the European Qualification Framework (EQF).
But first we want to find out what competencies you already have. Although we don’t demand it, we are sure that many of our applicants already have significant programming, design or product management skills, knowledge, and experience. Our goal is to make them tangible and document them in your Individual Competence Profile. This profile will be the cornerstone of your learning experience and represent your advancements and successes in a more meaningful way than any collection of grades.
