General FAQs

Are there any computer requirements?

You'll need to bring a laptop to every class! Although we don’t have a preference for what you use, some courses and workshops do require the use of a Mac laptop. Students who enroll in the UX Design must use a Mac laptop as you’ll be using Sketch, a program that isn’t currently available for PCs.

If you are unable to provide your own, we offer a limited number of Macbooks for rent at a rate of $100/month plus HST with a refundable security deposit of $250. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require a laptop rental.

Can I stop by for a campus tour?

You bet! Please book a call with one of our Student Success Consultants and they will be able to schedule you in for a tour of our campus.


Yes. We are a dog-friendly office, which means you will often see furry friends roaming around the space when you come in for class. Your house-trained dog is welcome to come in for class as well!

Do you offer corporate training?

Yes! Juno provides hands-on, project-based learning for executives, agencies and non-technical teams to help them thrive in today’s digital economy. At your office or off-site at Juno in Toronto, we’ll take your team through a one-day development or design workshop. Through lessons and hands-on exercises, participants will use what they learn throughout the day to build a final project from scratch.

For inquiries, please email us at info@junocollege.com

Do you provide certificates upon completion of one of your courses?

Students who complete the Full-Time Web Development Immersive program will receive a certificate. We do not provide certificates for our continuing education courses. We’re happy to provide documentation of completion for continuing education studies, however, if required by your employer.

How much time should I expect to dedicate to one of your courses?

Continuing Education Courses All of our continuing education courses requires a minimum time commitment of approximately 10 hours a week: six hours of class time and roughly four hours of homework.

Accelerated Web Development Each Accelerated Web Development at Juno") course runs Monday - Friday from 10am - 5:30pm each day. Outside of class hours, you should plan to spend 20 to 30 hours per week reviewing material and working on your project.

Web Development Immersive Bootcamp Our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp, on the other hand, is designed to be an intensive program. In addition to 35 hours/week of in-class lessons (Monday to Friday 10am to 6pm or 9am to 5pm depending on your program session), exercises and project work time, students are expected to commit to 20-40 hours a week outside of class

Web Development FAQs

Will I get a job after taking Web Development?

All of our continuing education courses are non-vocational programs and are not designed to precipitate a career change. They are a great way to bulk up your resume and learn a new skill, though!

Our Full-Time Web Development Immersive program is our vocational program and is designed to give you the skills you need to get a job as a developer. We also provide extensive job support throughout the program as well as after you graduate.

Why did you switch to an eight-week course format from the old twelve-week format?

After seven years of running our Web Development courses, we’ve mastered how to teach the fundamentals of web development, and we’re confident we can do it in eight weeks. In fact, we’re confident we can do it even better in eight weeks! Plus, our goal has always been to make our courses more accessible to more people - a lower price point and shorter time commitment make that possible. Find out more about why we moved to 8 weeks here.

Can I apply to Juno's Immersive program after this?

Yes! If after taking our Web Development course you decide that you want to pursue a career in Front-End Web Development, then applying to our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp would be a great next step in accelerating your career.

The understanding of HTML & CSS you will gain in our Web Development course is a requirement for our Bootcamp. Succesful Web Development Immersive Bootcamp applicants who have taken our Web Development course will also receive a $1,000 Alumni Scholarship off of their Bootcamp tuition.

Bootcamp FAQs

I have no prior coding experience. Is the Bootcamp right for me?

Not quite yet. Applicants to our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp will be required to successfully complete a technical assessment using HTML & CSS, so you’ll need some coding experience to be eligible for the program.

While our continuing education courses are not a mandatory prerequisite, students who complete our Web Development course before applying to Bootcamp learn the coding skills they need to complete the technical assessment. Succesful Web Development Immersive Bootcamp applicants who have taken our Web Development course will also receive a $1,000 Alumni Scholarship off of their Bootcamp tuition.

I’m interested in Bootcamp, but I’m going on vacation and might miss a few days. Can I still enrol?

Unfortunately not. Due to regulations under the Private Career Colleges Act, students enrolled in the Web Development Immersive Bootcamp must attend 315 hours of class to receive their certificate, and that’s exactly how many we have planned during your nine weeks with us.

What do you look for in applicants?

Our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp is always made up of a diverse group of students that are motivated, intellectually curious, and have chosen to study at Juno for a reason. They consider themselves lifelong learners and creative problem solvers, and show energy, drive and leadership potential. They have an understanding of their current skills, a desire to learn and improve, and an understanding of the steep learning curve ahead. They’re able to remain positive and focused while gracefully accommodating new ideas, changes, distractions, or challenges, and will thrive in our fast-paced environment!

What kind of job support do you provide?

Throughout the program, we do as much as possible to help in your job search, such as leading sessions on personal branding and job hunting strategies & tactics. We also host an Industry Day at the end of Bootcamp, where students network with potential employers and have the opportunity to showcase their portfolios.

Upon graduation, students work closely with the Juno Career Services team on their job search. We help students structure their searches, troubleshoot job hunt challenges, and even help negotiate contracts. Once students find their first job, we continue to provide ongoing support, through hosting professional development and career coaching sessions, and providing personalized support. We're only ever a message away!

Income Share Agreements FAQs

What are Income Share Agreements (ISAs)?

Income Share Agreements are a new way of paying tuition, designed to make education possible for those who have been held back because of their financial circumstances. This program is the first of its kind at a Canadian school. Juno is excited to introduce Income Share Agreements because of their potential to make our Bootcamp program more accessible and to diversify the tech industry in Toronto.

If you choose to fund your bootcamp education at Juno through an Income Share Agreement, you’ll pay just a loonie up front. Once you graduate and are earning at least $50,000 per year, you pay 17% of your income to Juno for two years. Find out more about Income Share Agreements here.

How does an Income Share Agreement work?

When you enroll in Bootcamp, you have a choice between paying the full $12,000 tuition upfront, or paying just $1 upfront with an Income Share Agreement. If you would like to pay $1, you enter into an Income Share Agreement with Juno. Under this contract you agree to pay Juno 17% of your gross monthly income for two years after graduation, starting when you land a job making at least $50,000 annually.

For example, if you land a job that pays $60,000/year, that means you are earning $5,000 per month. Each month, you will pay 17% of your income, or $850, to Juno. You will make these payments to Juno for 24 months, after which they are considered paid in full.

If you lose your job, take time off work, or your income drops below $50,000, your payments are paused. Payments are capped at a maximum total of $18,000 so you will never pay more than that, even if you are making a higher salary.

You have five years from your last day at Juno to make your 24 payments. If you have not made these payments after five years, your Income Share Agreement is voided and you don’t owe anything additional, ever.

Why do you offer Income Share Agreements? Why now?

At Juno, we have been making improvements to our Bootcamp every year since 2014 when we first introduced the program. Many of those improvements, such as adding more instructors and introducing a Career Services department, come with increased costs to Juno. As a result of these improvements, the price of our program has increased almost every year.

But, we know that great coders come from a variety of backgrounds - not just those who can afford to pay their full tuition upfront. We’ve always wanted to find a way to make our program more accessible not only so it’s affordable for more Canadians, but also so we can contribute to making the Toronto tech industry more diverse, which is a key part of our mission.

Income Share Agreements are our answer to this challenge. They take away the financial barriers that some students face, making it possible for anyone with great coding skills to enroll in Bootcamp and launch a new career as a developer. In thinking about our goals over the coming years, we knew it was the right time to put this initiative into action.

Am I eligible to apply for an Income Share Agreement?

You are eligible to apply for a Juno ISA if you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

It’s also important to note that limited ISA spots are available per cohort.

To be eligible for Bootcamp you must also have knowledge of HTML, CSS and Responsive Development. If you’re new to coding, our Web Development course is a great place to start.

Are Income Share Agreements the only payment option available?

No, you can still choose to pay your full tuition amount of $12,000 upfront if you have the means to do so. We offer different payment options to accommodate you depending on your financial circumstances.

If you do choose to pay your tuition upfront and have taken other courses at Juno in the past, you are also eligible for a number of alumni scholarships, which aren’t available to ISA students.

Does Juno charge interest on an Income Share Agreement?

Juno does not charge any interest on Income Share Agreements. As an ISA student, you will pay 17% of your income for 24 months. The payment amount only changes based on what your income is. There is no interest charged regardless of how long it takes you to find a job or what your salary is.

What is the difference between an Income Share Agreement and a loan?

Income Share Agreements are completely different from loans. With ISAs, there is no set amount that you have to pay back and no interest. Plus, you’ll only make payments in months where you’re making $50,000 a year or more, ensuring that you only pay back what you can afford to pay back. With a loan, there’s a set amount you have to pay back and an interest rate, and you’re required to make payments whether or not you have the means to do so.

With ISAs, you make payments for just two years, and after five years, no matter how many payments you’ve made, the agreement is void. Often, student loans can take more than a decade to pay back.

Plus, ISAs are much more accessible than loans because loans usually require good credit scores. If your credit score isn’t good, or doesn’t exist, a loan may not be available to you, but an ISA could still be.

How does repayment work in an Income Share Agreement?

As a graduating ISA student, when you accept an employment agreement, you are required to share that agreement with Juno’s Career Services department. We then calculate your monthly salary based on the offer and set up a pre-authorized debit from your account for 17% of your gross monthly income. This payment only happens in months where your gross income is higher than $4,166.66 per month, or $50,000 per year.

To verify that you’re not under-paying or over-paying each month, we require you to have an approved Canadian bank account and to authorize us to use a service called Plaid to access limited information, such as your income sources. Each month, we use the information from Plaid to confirm that the correct amount was paid. If you received an ISA, at the end of the year we also require you to provide us with your T1 General, which is an additional check to ensure you paid the correct amount.

How will Juno help me get a job?

Our Bootcamp program is designed to give students the skills they need to get a job as a Web Developer. We’ve worked closely with our students since 2014 to ensure they are successful both when they graduate from Juno, and throughout their careers. During our program, we teach you the skills you’ll need to find a job. From personal branding lessons to resume and cover letter reviews, we work one-on-one with you until you are employed. Our CEO has always been involved with our graduates’ job hunts and in 2019, we added a dedicated Career Services department with the goal of helping every graduate land a job they’re proud of.

Our graduates work at some of the best companies out there, including Loblaw Digital, Deloitte, Uberflip, Crowdriff, TWG, Ceridian Dayforce, ecobee, Universal Music, and more.

It’s important to note that you must have knowledge of HTML, CSS, and Responsive Development to be ready for Bootcamp. If you’re new to coding, our part-time Web Development course is a great place to start.

Do I have to take the first job that’s offered to me? What happens if it takes me a while to find a job? What if I lose my job?

No you don’t have to take the first job offered to you. We want you to find the best job possible. If it takes you 10 months to find this job, you will pay nothing for 10 months. If you lose your job at any point, payments pause, and restart again once you start making at least $50,000 per year.

If I’ve already been accepted into the Bootcamp program, can I switch to an Income Share Agreement?

Yes, if you’re already accepted to cohorts beginning on or after July 29th, 2019 you will have the option to switch to an Income Share Agreement, and would receive a refund of your tuition paid (minus a dollar).

Is the Income Share Agreement calculated before or after taxes?

Income Share Agreement payments are calculated on your gross income before taxes. This means that if you are making $50,000 per year, and your gross monthly income is $4,166.66 per month, you pay 17% of that amount, which equals $708.33. There is no HST on these payments, just like how there is no HST when students pay tuition upfront.

What are the risks of enrolling with an Income Share Agreement?

Enrolling in Bootcamp at Juno with an Income Share Agreement is low-risk. All of our students enter Bootcamp with the end goal of making a career change and finding a job as a developer. If you aren’t able to find a job making at least $50,000, then you don’t have to pay back your Income Share Agreement. This takes some of the risk out of Bootcamp, because if you never find a job, you never have to pay.

We’re confident in offering this program because we know our Bootcamp process works. Our graduates have a 97% employment rate, and an average starting salary $53,872. This means we’re comfortable investing in you - because we know that you're likely to succeed and will pay us back when you can.

What if I miss an Income Share Agreement payment?

You only make payments when you earn at least $50,000 per year or $4,166.66 per month. If in any month you earn less than that, payments pause. If you’re earning this much and still miss a payment, we offer a 90-day grace period to make up for the missed payment.

At the end of the day, an ISA is a legally binding document. We require all of our students to live up to their commitments, or ISAs may become unavailable to other students in the future.

Why are Income Share Agreements 'pending approval from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities'?

Income Share Agreements have been approved by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities as of May 2019. Read more about why we're excited to be Paving the Way for Income Share Agreements in Canada.

Yes, we do! Students applying to the Web Development Immersive with a non-Canadian post-secondary diploma must have their degrees assessed as equivalent to a Canadian post-secondary diploma or degree by a recognized assessment service (at their own cost). Juno does not require you to have a particular type of visa in order to attend due to the length of our programs. For more information, you can learn about being a Visitor to Canada on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada Website. If you wish to stay and work in Canada after the program, please note that Juno is unable to assist students in obtaining a Canadian Working Visa. We encourage prospective Web Development Immersive students to look into the process before applying to the program as to not delay your job hunt upon completion of the program.

If I take Con-Ed Web Development and Con-ed JavaScript, would this replace the Juno Bootcamp curriculum?

Our continuing education courses are designed for people looking to learn awesome new skills, whereas our Bootcamp is an intensive, vocational program meant to prepare students for a complete career transition.

While all of the curriculum from our Con-Ed Web Development and JavaScript courses will be touched on in the Bootcamp, Bootcamp students will dive much deeper into advanced JavaScript topics, such as React + Firebase. Bootcamp students will also work on soft skills such as presentation and public speaking, working with teams and clients, and job seeking. The pace at which you're required to learn and build projects in the Bootcamp is unmatched, making it a completely different experience from continuing education.

In fact, due to the selectiveness of our Bootcamp admissions process, many students to complete both Con-Ed Web Development and Con-Ed JavaScript before applying to Bootcamp!

Why should I learn HTML?

Web Development is one of the most in-demand skills in the tech industry, and no matter what front-end coding language you want to learn, HTML and CSS are where you need to start. These two languages are the basis for any front-end web development knowledge you hope to build. If you’re not sure about whether learning HTML is for you, here are a few reasons why it might be:

  • Gain a new in-demand skill: Whether you’re an entrepreneur or freelancer, the ability to code websites from scratch will add a tonne of value to your skill set, and can be helpful and transferrable in almost any industry.
  • DIY Creative Freedom: Drag-and-drop website builders such as Wix and Squarespace are great tools if you’re looking for a simple website, but you can be limited by the templates and designs provided. Knowing HTML & CSS means you can build websites from scratch, without needing any of these beginner friendly builders. So, whether you want to build a website for your side hustle or start a blog, knowing how to code will be a great help.
  • Level Up at Work: Learning to code can be the perfect stepping stone to your next raise or promotion at work, especially if you work in a tech related field. And, no matter what industry you’re in, knowing how to code makes you a more valuable employee.
  • Speed Up a Career Change: If you’re considering making a career change into tech or specifically front-end development, knowing HTML and CSS are what you’ll need to start your journey.

Why should I learn HTML at Juno?

Once you’ve decided to move forward with coding, there are many places you can go to learn to code, and quite a few in Toronto alone. Between online resources, and schools such as Juno, BrainStation, Bitmaker, and Lighthouse Labs, you’ve got lots of options. Here are a few things that set the Juno student experience apart from anywhere else.

  • Learn from the best: All of the instructors and mentors at Juno are currently working as Web Developers in Toronto at amazing companies like Shopify, The Working Group, and Chapters-Indigo, so you’ll always be learning current industry best practices.

  • Learn in a welcoming atmosphere: At Juno, collaboration and inclusivity are a focus of ours, and we’re committed to providing a comfortable atmosphere for all that choose to learn with us. No matter who you are or where you come from, you have a spot to learn and enjoy your experience at Juno.

  • Exercised-based learning: When you’re learning to code, the best way to understand and full grasp concepts is to put them into action immediately. Our courses are exercise-heavy so you always have the opportunity to take what you learn, put it into action, and ask questions. You’ll have the chance to troubleshoot and understand why things are done a certain way, which is especially helpful when there seem to be multiple paths to the same destination.

  • Receive in-depth feedback: In all of our courses, the instructor team provides detailed, personalized feedback on every portfolio project you hand in. This means that you get the chance to receive and understand your feedback, ask questions, and then implement it on future work. Receiving real-time applicable feedback like this is an important part of truly understanding course content and improving along the way.

How can I level up my HTML skills?

If you’re comfortable with HTML and CSS and want to step up your skills to propel a career change, our full-time Web Development Immersive Bootcamp is the next step. Our bootcamp covers HTML & CSS in class, but is geared towards those who are already comfortable with both languages and are ready to commit to becoming a front-end developer. This nine-week full-time program will teach you JavaScript, jQuery, Github, Responsive Web Development, and React; help you create a final portfolio full of impressive projects; and even includes dedicated job search help at the end of the program. This program is one of the best in the world, and also rated the top coding bootcamp in Canada. Here you can find out more about what you’ll learn in Bootcamp and how to apply.

What will I learn in a Juno HTML course?

If you decide to pursue HTML training at Juno, you’ll not only learn to master this language, but CSS as well. Our Continuing Education Web Development courses are a blend of theory and hands on practice that will teach not only how to understand these languages, but how to write them with ease. Here’s what you can expect to learn if you take Web Development at Juno:

  • HTML, CSS, and responsive design

  • Precompiled syntaxes such as Sass

  • Converting professional designs to HTML & CSS

  • Best practices for modern web development

  • Website accessibility requirements

  • Introduction to JavaScript & jQuery

You can learn more about our Continuing Education Web Development courses here.

How much does a course at Juno cost?

We know it can be scary to invest in a course, and maybe even a career change, but we’re 100% confident that our courses are worth the price, so we’re happy to be transparent and help you make your decision! We’ve written a blog post about the exact number of dollars you should be thinking about before enrolling in a course at Juno. You can read it here and break down what your coding budget should be.

What’s the difference between HTML and HTML5?

Just like your computer or smartphone, HTML needs updates and improvements from time-to-time. New features are added often, but sometimes updates are so substantial that it becomes a whole new version of HTML. HTML5 is the latest update, and today anywhere you learn HTML will be teaching HTML5. There were lots of new features introduced in HTML5, some of the most notable being:

  • Media such as games, audio, and video can now run in the browser without additional plugins. This makes it much easier to include media content like these in your code.
  • Improvements were made to mobile support and catered towards tablets and smartphones. Since mobile users account for almost 50% of total web page views today, and that number is always growing, it’s more and more important to cater web pages - and our code - to mobile users.
  • Semantic elements were introduced to give sections of code meaning. If you think back to the building, rather than just putting up a bunch of random walls, you would decide which room is the kitchen, and which is the bedroom. In the same way, HTML5 allows you to give each section of your code meaning.

HTML5 was released to create a better web experience for developers and users. Although it’s not important for you to know the specifics of what makes HTML5 different, it is important to know that you are always coding using the latest version of HTML. That’s why, at Juno, our curriculum is always evolving, and even after you take a course you will always have access to notes that are up to date with the latest improvements and best practices.

Where can I learn HTML?

When it comes to learning HTML, there are lots of different paths you could take. Some people decide to start with free online classes, some people take an in-person workshop, and some people dive straight into a full course. You have to figure out what works for you and your unique journey. Here are a few of our favourite options.

  • Online HTML Classes: Free online coding classes are a great way to try out coding in a risk-free environment from the comfort of your home. Sites like Codecademy, Lynda, and FreeCodeCamp have free courses made specifically for beginner coders. Here you can check out Five Free Resources to Explore if You’re Thinking About Learning to Code.

  • Free HTML Workshops: Though online coding classes can be a good starting point, learning in a classroom environment with immediate help and guidance available is a great step up. At Juno we offer free Web Development Basics workshops every month that are targeted towards complete beginners. These workshops give students the opportunity to learn with professional instructors and have all their questions answered. Find out more about our Web Development Basics Workshops.

  • HTML Courses at Juno: Juno offers continuing education web development courses that will teach you HTML and CSS in a fun, welcoming, classroom setting. We offer courses in evenings and weekends, and even accelerated options for those who want to speed up their learning. Courses start multiple times per month so that, no matter what, there is a course that can accommodate your busy schedule. If you are looking to learn HTML and CSS at Juno, we recommend taking Web Development. Check out more about Continuing Education courses at Juno.
