Frequently Asked Questions
What are Flatiron School bootcamps?
Flatiron School provides accelerated programs (aka, bootcamps) that teach you the tech skills you need to become a software engineer, data scientist, cybersecurity engineer, or product designer. We publish annual Jobs Reports and provide comprehensive Career Services so you know you’re getting a top-notch opportunity to change your career and your future.
Are bootcamps worth it?
Bootcamps offer a lot of things. They offer an opportunity to learn the skills you need to launch a career at a relatively affordable and fast pace.
What’s required of you is to find the right bootcamp. Find a place that teaches in a way that fits your learning style, meets your price point and schedule, and focuses on the languages and skills that align with your career ambitions. If you do your research and find the right place for you, then attending the right bootcamp is definitely the right choice.
Do bootcamps work?
Employers value people who can do the job and who can learn and adapt quickly on the job. By successfully completing a bootcamp, you’re demonstrating that you can “do” as evidenced by your projects, and that you can “learn” as evidenced by completing the program.
At Flatiron School, you’ll be able to demonstrate both. You’ll learn how to learn because new technologies and tools appear on the market every day. Our approach enables graduates to learn and apply new tools when needed. In other words, it’s not just the skills themselves that are important to hiring managers, but how you go about acquiring skills to complete a job that sets you apart.
In many ways, bootcamps definitely do work, and there’s a lot of proof behind that statement.
But it’s better to first ask yourself, “What do I want to get out of attending a bootcamp?” Asking yourself what your goals and ambitions are is how you’ll know if a bootcamp would work for you.
Some people want to just become acquainted with the basics of a field, which is great, but a full-time bootcamp might not be the best route if you’re just looking for a basic understanding.
If your goal is to learn the skills you need to change careers, then yes, bootcamps do work.
Do I need prior experience to apply to a Flatiron School program?
We do not require you to have prior experience to apply for any of our programs. Our admissions requirements are being at least 18 years old, having a high school diploma or a GED, having a native or bilingual fluency in English, passing the admission interview(s), and completing any required pre-work.
What is the difference between the Live (full-time) and Flex (part-time) experience?
On-campus programs are 15-weeks long, and are held full-time and you are expected to be on campus for each day of class from 9am – 6pm local time. The Live program is also 15 weeks, but rather than going to a campus, you’ll be logged on and learning remotely full-time. Both on-campus and Live programs monitor attendance daily. The Flex program gives students up to 60 weeks to complete the curriculum, and offers the most flexibility day to day. Students enrolled in Flex programs must attend 10 check-ins in order to be eligible for graduation but are not otherwise required to attend live instructional activities.
How do Flatiron School’s courses stack up against free tutorials and other live instructor bootcamps?
The price of our courses reflect our unique approach to learning and support. There are many free resources that can help you learn any discipline, but given the complexity of the topic they can be difficult to navigate independently. Furthermore, students often rave about the camaraderie they establish with instructors, other students, coaches, and alumni – all valuable networking opportunities when it comes to a job search. Our courses and support after graduation are built specifically to provide the structure and community that’s required to be successful.
As for our more traditional competitors – those who are priced similarly and offer live instruction – most haven’t been around as long as Flatiron School, so they may not have the same depth of expertise, employer partner relationships, or alumni network.
What is Flatiron School’s application process like?
The first step is to fill out a written application. Once you submit your application, you will hear back from our Admissions team regarding next steps. If your application moves forward, you will be invited to schedule a video call with a member of the Admissions team to better understand your learning needs, career goals, and whether the program is the right fit for you. Students may be required to complete an assessment as a part of the admissions process. After a technical interview, you will receive an Admissions decision within a few business days.
