What is the ISA?

The Income Share Agreement (ISA) ensures equal access to education with a fair financial solution, irrespective of your current financial status โœจ. In Germany, we've partnered with Chancen eG to make coding accessible to everyone!

Here's a quick overview of how it works ๐Ÿ‘‡

1. Study ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Our partner Chancen eG takes care of your tuition fees so you can focus on the bootcamp.

2. Repayments ๐Ÿ’ธ
  • You start to repay the tuition once youโ€™ve got your first job with more than 28,000โ‚ฌ of yearly gross salary.
  • Your monthly repayment fee will be between 4,8% and 5,5% of your monthly gross salary.
  • Note that in Germany you can deduct your yearly repayment fees from your income tax, when preparing the income tax declaration.
3. Income Threshold ๐Ÿ’ช

Repayments only start when you earn above the minimum threshold of 28.000 Euros gross. This ensures that the repayment plan is only activated when you can really afford it.

4. Repayment is Capped ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ
Your repayment stops after either a total of 60 single repayments (months) or after having repaid double the course fee in case you hit a high salary and with that, your monthly repayments.
