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 two-part 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.

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.
