Our Program

Migracode acts as a bridge between the demand for skilled people in the tech sector and people with a migration background who are eager to work in the tech industry.

Founded in 2019, we are cooperating with other code schools in Europe to build a large community of companies and students to foster both labor integration as well as social inclusion.

Built on four pillars

Together with our students, volunteers and partners we work towards the following

Open Education

Open access to our school

We believe in equal opportunity for everyone and our academy is therefore freely accessible for people with a migration background and limited access to the labour market

Community Building

Brining people together

In order to foster not only labour but also social integration, we work towards inclusion of newcomers and host-country nationals through our program and our events

Job Placements

Fostering labour integration

We are in contact with many tech companies in and around Barcelona and we aim to find jobs for our students after they graduate from our coding course, with help from employability training

Additional Support

Offering more than just education

We do not only support our students with learning how to code, but we also offer soft skill trainings, psychological support and other forms of additional but necessary support

Dozens of volunteers involved, new students joining regularly and many corporate and nonprofit partnerships created

What do people say about us?

We work with many volunteers, partners and - of course - students. Read what they have to say about us! Below you can also find an overview of our corporate and non profit partners. Interested in reading more? Find some of the individual stories of MigraCode Graduates over here.

Thanks to Migracode I have made the professional change I have been looking for a long time ago, It is a great school and the people (Monitors, Managers and other staff) are really the soul of why that is. The people here care, they work hard, they work smart, they genuinely want the students to be successful even beyond the classes.

I was completely humbled to hear these guys talk about their experiences and their sheer determination to upskill and become valuable, contributing members of society and never have I felt so privileged and lazy! I’m genuinely not sure who learned more.

Migracode Graduate from Venezuela

I believe that Migracode is much more than a program to learn web programming: Migracode is an all inclusive community where an individual learns about web programming while sharing life experiences with other individuals that have different abilities and approaches to life.

Teaching at Migracode is an incredibly rewarding experience. Seeing the students going from virtually zero knowledge to being able to code their way out of complex problems is simply fantastic.

Working at Migracode means that you not only have the opportunity to teach them how to stand out in the jobs market, but also how to stand out as people. Nothing more rewarding for me than knowing their life stories and providing them valuable resources to train their soft skills in order to conquer their own confidence.

Migracode Instructor & Bootcamp Graduate

Many students of Migracode have escaped very difficult circumstances in their home country. They work tremendously hard to improve their knowledge and skills because they know their future depends on their studies. I am impressed with their dedication and hard work. Migracode is literally a life-changing experience for them.

Migracode Graduate from Bangladesh

When I stepped foot on Migracode, I did not imagine that the decision will shape my future. Today, I am proud to say, Migracode has played a leading role in my life and made my dream came true. Thank you for teaching me so much - both about the hard skills and soft skills. To me, our Migracode is a precious thing, a great gift to our community, a great opportunity for immigrant students who came to Spain with a great hope. It is a place of optimism, and transformation.

MigraCode Graduate from Brazil

After 8 months of course, training about development of skills, employability sessions and differents meet ups. I am feeling glad for I could use all those knowledges learned in Migracode at Webhelp, but it doesn't finish at all, was just one step for a long journey about self and professional development, always having focus to provide the best experience for the costumer and a good environment between my co-workers. Thanks Migracode and Webhelp to work together to make it real.

MigraCode Graduate from Mexico

The start of my collaboration with migracode and the idea of learning code and sharing my thoughts and ideas with my colleagues was exciting, however, after the lockdown it was hard and challenging during the covid. But with the help of the mentors and working with people from different places and backgrounds helped us to strengthen our communication and teamwork. In addition, it was fruitful in many aspects. Rather than learning code, it was a preparation for new challenges in our new normal.

Being a part of Migracode has been a life-changing experience in many ways. It's an amazing opportunity to start over and look for opportunities for a better future while it allows you to be a part of an incredible community, and as a migrant, I believe this is an incredible support. The amazing team is there to support you in absolutely anything you need, even if not related to the course itself. I totally thank them for that!

My 8 months long learning experience at Migracode tells that it helped me gain my confidence on being a web developer with the knowledge of the latest stacks and tools, which was made possible by the presence of talented and helpful volunteers. The soft skills trainings and the consulting services regarding for any kind of problem is also something that Migracode is and will be special for, just like the way MigraCode is committed to help the students even after the bootcamp.

MigraCode Graduate from Ukraine

With a fast changing world I decided to focus on the things that should help me in the future. That was one of the main reasons why I applied to the Migracode Programming school, when I came to Barcelona. Within the 8 months programming course, the the whole new tech-world opened for me. I realize that I am still at the very beginning of my journey in this area, but the future has become much more promising.

MigraCode Graduate from Romania

There is philosophy in everything MirgraCode is doing for the under-represented community of refugees, migrants, women in tech. This gives them unthinkable power to build bridges and alter the circumstances of those of us in need. They might be young but wise enough to know that with power comes responsibility and they don’t fall short on it. They listen and connect with people. They don’t perform for them. They are genuine community builders. All of it is lived experience that brings meaning to my words.

Instructor Spotlight: Elena Raffay

ThoughtWorks full-stack developer Elena Raffay joined Migracode as a way to give back to the community. While having to move fully online isn’t ideal, she still enjoys being part of a diverse community of coders working to include historically marginalized groups in tech.
