The CODE University of Applied Sciences is a private, state-recognized University of Applied Sciences for digital product development in Berlin , Germany.
Bachem stated that his personal experience learning that German universities’ computer science study programs were of an outdated didactic and theoretical nature sparked the idea for CODE. Being an autodidact coder since his early youth, he saw no fitting institution for his kind.
All potential applicants have to go through a multi-level admission process in which classical measuring tools like school grades or certificates are completely irrelevant. The four-step admission process consists of a written online motivation letter, a video interview, an exemplary project “challenge” and finally joining an Assessment day.
To present day, CODE is a target Uni for Big Tech and students are among the most VC funded Start-Up founders in Germany.
The university’s facilities are part of the Berlin-based startup campus and community space Factory Berlin. Its 14.000 m² are located in Lohmühlenstraße, Alt-Treptow, next to Görlitzer Park. Due to a close partnership, all students are free to use the overall 23.000 m² of Factory’s Berlin facilities as well as the included membership perks for free.
