What the application process looks like

Aptitude for software engineering is built from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro-athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All that you need to bring is your passion and an open mind.

Step 1 → Apply

Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.

Step 2 → Admissions interview

Speak with an Admissions representative in a non-technical interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.

What do we look for in a Flatiron School student?

Step 3 → Admissions decision

You'll receive an admissions decision within a few days of completing your Admissions interview. If accepted, you'll prepare for the first 14 days of the program, a busy and critical time. During these 14 days, you'll complete various requirements to continue in your cohort.

Frequently asked questions

How do I know which course pace is right for me? How big are the class sizes?

Full-time cohorts are ~20:1 student:teacher ratio, and part-time cohorts ~40:1. Which pacing option is right for you depends on two main considerations — how much time you can devote each week and what kind of learning environment you want. The full-time and part-time course paces provide assigned cohorts and require a minimum number of hours per week to drive program completion. Some people want that structure and accountability and are ready to commit that time. Other people with unpredictable schedules require a bit more flexibility and less structure, so they prefer the self-paced program. The self-paced option is also a good choice for students with a bit of background in code to guide themselves through the coursework. Note, all three of our course pace options offer the same industry-vetted software engineering curriculum.

How long is each program?

In the full-time program, each of the five modules takes four weeks. With one week of a scheduled break, you can expect the entire program to take five months. Students choose when to commit the 40-50 hours per week of coursework.

In part-time, the modules take eight weeks and there are two scheduled one week breaks making the program last ten months. Students choose when to commit the 20-25 hours per week of coursework.

In self-paced, you’ll progress through each module at your own speed, but the entire program must be complete within fifteen months.

Do I need my own computer?

You will need to ensure you have a suitable computer to study on this course. See specific computer requirements here. You can also ask our Admissions team about your best options for buying or renting.
