The FDM Graduate Programme provides fast-track entry into high-profile IT careers. We only take on those who have a strong aptitude in IT with the desire and ambition to succeed. In addition, a number of select individuals will be given the opportunity to embark on the Master Class Programme, which involves a fully funded MSc in Applied Computer Science. Due to the nature of our business model and the minimum time commitment we require for each programme, other terms and conditions apply.
