Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Python programming skills relevant today?

The future is bright for programmers who know Python — it’s a baseline skill for high-growth industries like analytics, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and data science, which was recently named the No. 1 most promising job by LinkedIn.

It’s also incredibly accessible. Thanks to its versatility and intuitive syntax, Python is one of the easiest programming languages to learn on the market — a good choice for beginners to the world of programming.

What are the professional backgrounds of Python programming students?

Python Programming is our best entry-level course for professionals looking to gain a foundation in programming to kickstart a move into tech or data. You’ll find a diverse range of students in the classroom including:

  • New programmers who want to get up and running quickly with an object-oriented language.

  • Graduates of our Data Analytics course who enjoyed the programming aspects of Excel and SQL.

  • Anyone considering further study in our Data Science or Data Science Immersive programmes, which require a strong foundation in Python programming.

Regardless of their backgrounds, this programme attracts students that want to know how to code a prototype, make sense of documentation, and continue honing their Python skills independently.

Will I earn a certificate?

Yes! Upon passing this course, you will receive a signed certificate of completion. Thousands of GA alumni use their course certificate to demonstrate skills to employers and their LinkedIn networks.

You will be expected to spend time working on homework and projects outside of class hours each week, but the workload is designed to be manageable with a full-time job.

If you need to miss a session or two, we offer resources to help you catch up. We recommend you discuss any planned absences with your instructor.

Which format should I take this course in — on campus or online?

It’s up to you! Our Remote course offers a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allows you to learn Python from the comfort of home. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.

Our Admissions team can advise you on the best format for your personal circumstances and learning style.

What projects will I work on during the course?

For your capstone project, you’ll apply what you’ve learned throughout the course to build a polished, portfolio-ready web or data application. Showcase your skills by creating a custom app that pulls in third-party data with Pandas or integrates functionality from APIs with Flask, depending on the focus of your cohort.

We encourage you to tackle a problem that’s related to your work or a passion project you’ve been meaning to carve out time for.

Throughout the course, you’ll also complete a number of smaller projects designed to reinforce what you’ve learned in each unit.
