Success Stories
Our students’ reviews
«Before my current role, I worked as an estimating engineer. My background is in construction. I wanted a change in my career, so I enrolled in the back-end development course. I chose Starta Institute because it's the only IT school that teaches this kind of technology in Berlin. What I liked about the classes was that the instructors were responsive and gave very structured information. Also, it was great that we studied for 9 months at a relaxed pace, which helped us to better absorb knowledge and avoid messing up our heads. I got a job a month before the course ended and increased my income by 30%».

«I'm a musician by trade and I'm unsettled by nature. I thought that my liberal arts knowledge was not enough to work in IT and that I would soon get tired of sitting in front of a screen. It turned out to be quite the opposite — when I began to write my own program, improve it, and alter some parts of the code, I liked it. At times I didn't want to sleep, I just wanted to write code! A pleasant bonus is that now I get paid many times more than I could have imagined, even when I enrolled in the program. The quality of life has increased manifold, thanks to Starta Institute».
Victor Sabadosh
«My previous work did not meet my expectations and I decided to change my profession. I decided to move to the IT sphere and took the "Front-end-developer" course at Starta Institute. I was successfully employed within a couple of months after the training. Now I work as a Junior Front-End Web Developer and finally get satisfaction and decent pay for what I do».
Vitaliy Makarenko
«Before the course, I was a hockey player. I got injured and my career ended there. Later, I found Starta Institute and decided to take a course. At first, I mastered the basic skills of front-end and back-end, Java, Spring, etc. After I finished the course, I continued working on my final project for another month, learning new features. The career department helped me with the job search and resume. I had 4 interviews and received 2 job offers. Now I work for an IT company, which helped me with the relocation».
Vladislav Gavrus
«I got tired of my old job and thought about a career change. That's how the idea of shifting to QA engineering came about. I got all the necessary knowledge and experience during the training to get to work. The school also helped me write my resume and held a mock job interview in English and Russian. I received support from the school's management and teachers until I found my job. Now I am working at Weavr as a QA Engineer and I can confidently say that my knowledge from the "Back-end developer" course came in handy in my work».
