More Questions?

What is ALX?

ALX offers job-ready training in the tech fields employers need most. ALX, in partnership with The ROOM, is brought to you by the organisation that leads African Leadership Academy, African Leadership University, and Anzisha Prize Foundation.

How can I get in touch with ALX Africa to answer the questions I have?

Please ask LEA our Learning Experience Assistant for more information and answers to any additional questions.

What is your selection process like?

The ALX Selection Process is a two-step online process. First applicants will be required to complete a registration form which will take a few minutes to complete. Once this has been submitted, applicants will be directed to our online application platform. The application will take approximately 90 mins to complete and consists of three sections; including an English proficiency test. Applicants will also receive access to the online application via email. Your link to the application is personal and therefore cannot be shared.

Why do I have to pay an admin fee?

The low-cost, one-time administration fee helps ALX as we continue to grow our robust online and in-person infrastructure for learners. Our city Hubs can continue to provide learners with access to state-of-the-art tech and infrastructure, providing a space for collaboration and study that is unmatched. We can also maintain our online portal to make it easier for students to access our vast tech community. The administration fee helps us keep our online portal, modern infrastructure, and career network up and running.

Am I able to go to the Hubs?

Attending the in-person hubs is a benefit of the ALX learning experience. The in-person co-working spaces are designed to provide accountability, peer support, and the opportunity for face-to-face interaction and networking. This is intended to boost productivity and help individuals achieve their goals.

Are there any costs to enroll?

Our partnership with the Mastercard Foundation means that we can offer eligible African learners sponsored access to our world-class training programmes. If you meet our eligibility criteria and pass the admission test you will not be required to pay the programme costs, but only an admin fee. 2024 Program administration fees will be published in January 2024.

Which programme do you recommend I apply for?

The perfect programme for you really depends on your own interests. Our Tech Lite programmes are a great starting point to figure out your next career move. If you’re interested in coding and building websites, Front-End Web Development or Back-End Development might be for you. For those interested in manipulating large data sets or working with customer data, Data Analytics or Salesforce might be a good choice.

How do I join your sessions?

By enrolling in one of our programmes, you gain access to a world of opportunity. This includes access to our local Tech Hubs situated in 8 cities across the African continent. There, you can attend lectures and masterclasses, network with other tech professionals, and co-work in a state-of-the-art space. After completing your course, you will still be able to access these perks, as you will automatically be part of the ALX Fellowship, which helps learners further their career after completing their programme.

Is your programme really for beginners?

Our Tech Lite programmes are designed for absolute beginners. Our Intro to Software Engineering programme, for example, will teach you the basics of coding and programming, starting from the ground up. All Tech Lite programmes are beginner-friendly and do not require any previous tech knowledge.

Do I get a diploma or degree?

After completing our Tech Lite programmes, you will receive a certificate from our issuing partner. Upon successful completion of AWS Cloud Computing, you will receive a Cloud Practitioner certificate, issued by Amazon Web Services. After completing the Salesforce Administrator programme, you will receive a Salesforce Administrator certificate directly from Salesforce. ExploreAI will also issue you a Data certificate after you successfully complete the Data Analytics programme. Last, on completion of Intro to Software Engineering, you will receive a certificate of completion from ALX.

I’m still working/a student, can I still join an ALX programme?

Our various programmes require different time commitments to complete. Our Tech Lite programmes are designed specifically to cater to learners who might have other commitments – like school or a job – to tend to. So long as you are dedicated to the programme, you can make it work.

Additionally, there are no live lectures or classes to attend. Instead, programmes consist of recorded lectures, chats in online forums, and milestone-led coursework. This means that you can choose to learn at your own pace and a time that suits your schedule best.
