Hear from a student

I enjoy how the course work is structured, my Technical Mentor is super reliable and provides useful resources that compliment the course work I’m doing. The support from Zindua is excellent, they have a dedicated Slack channel where we ask and receive help from both the Technical Mentors and my fellow students. The projects are challenging but manageable and help reinforce the material covered. I would recommend Zindua to anyone who wants to kickstart their tech career and want a personalised learning experience.

Yes, Zindua School has an enrolment deposit of KES 5,000 which is deductible from your program fees. The deposit allows us to confirm your slot in an upcoming intake. Fees will be paid (minus the deposit) once you have started the program.

We have a three-step admissions process. Apply on website, pay the enrolment deposit, and attend our orientation program. Simple and straightforward. Since there could be some weeks between the time you pay the deposit and the orientation program, you’ll be invited to our Free Courses to start learning the program prerequisites.

No, we do not offer a job guarantee. However, we have a career development program, we support graduates in applying for jobs, and we connect top graduates to our employment network. Beyond that, it worth noting, we are pretty incentivised to support all learners in the hiring process as we offer a 50%-guarantee if you do not get a job 12 months on graduating the program; and the case for income-share agreements, we only get our investment back if you get a job. Therefore, it is is in our best interest to offer utmost quality to prepare you for the job market.
