How to apply

Hive tuition is free. No coding experience, degrees or other qualifications are required. To apply, we only ask that you are open-minded, motivated and ready to commit to our 3-year program. You must be at least 18 or have completed basic comprehensive education.

1/3 Beat the online game

Create an account on the website and try two online games. No coding is required – only logic. You must reserve at least 2 hours to play. Also find a place where you can concentrate, pausing is not possible. If you succeed, you’ll be invited to a check-in.

2/3 Participate in the check-in meeting

Your check-in meeting is your chance to get a feel for Hive’s Helsinki campus, meet our staff and ask questions. We’ll validate your application and present the curriculum. If you live far away, we can also organize a virtual meeting.

Selection criteria

Hive only requires that applicants pass the online test and attend a check-in meeting, before subscribing for a Piscine. Due to high demand, check-in meetings have limited spots and are filled on a first come first served basis, through the applications website.
