Code First Girls works with global universities to break down barriers and provide free opportunities for women students to learn how to code and enter the tech workforce. 

With less than 1.7% of women pursuing computer science in further education, we offer university students the opportunity to learn to code, regardless of their primary area of study. When it comes to achieving merit and distinctions in our courses, both non-STEM and STEM graduates perform on par, proving that women can thrive in technology, regardless of their educational background.

By offering your students access to Code First Girls courses, they will not only be future-proofing their careers, but have preferential access to job opportunities in their local area, in most cases securing a starting salary 40% higher than the graduate average. Not only that but there’s a 91% satisfaction rate among those we’ve placed into jobs, with 75% saying they would stay in their current role for at least 2 more years.

At Code First Girls, our curriculum is our own IP. We continually update this based on industry need, thanks to our global partners communicating the skills they need to fill, now and in the future.  

As tech skills evolve, so does our curriculum, and it guarantees your students graduate with cutting-edge knowledge, future-proofed against a rapidly evolving  tech landscape


When you partner with Code First Girls, you’re ensuring that your students – no matter what their field of study – get priority access to educational opportunities in your region through our exclusive affiliate code system



We work with over 130 companies who sponsor women through our courses in the UK and internationally. After graduating from our free coding courses, many women go on to be placed in their first roles in tech with sponsor organisations across 20+ industries, including Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Morgan Stanely, Nike, Ford, Deloitte, Skyscanner and Rolls-Royce.

University partner


Absolutely nothing! Our model is completely free for both the universities and students.

Completing one of our kickstarter classes will provide your students with everything they need to go on to apply for a CFGdegree and land their first tech role at one of our partner organisations. For more information on the CFGdegree visit here.
41% of our total community are career switchers, retraining and landing their first roles in tech. Just like with all current students and recent graduates, we encourage university alumni to sign up to our opportunities and they are also eligible to use the affiliate code when doing so.

Our courses are fantastic for teaching your students how to think and work like professional coders. We’ve developed a curriculum that is agile and ever-evolving to the needs of the industry, while also being a fantastic confidence booster and a chance to develop team working skills.

In addition to this, our CFGdegree opportunities are exclusive to Code First Girls and will give even your computer science students top access to our employer partners.
