Course Pace Options
At Flatiron School, we know all students are different, so we offer three different, personalised course paces designed to give you the perfect balance of flexibility and structure to ensure your success.Paired with our proprietary online learning platform, Learn.co, and dedicated support from an Educational Coach for each cohort to check in and help you to stay accountable for your progress and anchored to your motivation in learning to code.
Choose Which Course Pace Is Right for You:
Graduate in 5 months with our fastest course pace: full-time. You will work through a minimum of 45-50 hours per week of coursework, and benefit from dedicated, full-time learning. This pacing option requires the most commitment, as you’ll be expected to attend live study groups, complete labs, and collaborate with others in your cohort throughout the day.
As a student, you’ll benefit from learning with a small cohort and a dedicated Cohort Lead who teaches and mentors throughout the entire course schedule. Attend live study groups each week with your cohort lead.
Additionally, Educational Coaches serve as the Community Lead for each cohort and can help you connect with your classmates and optimise your study habits. This non-technical support by your cohort's Educational Coach is in addition to the real-time help from our Technical Coaches via our Ask A Question Feature in Learn.co.
Graduate in 10 months at a pace that offers the same structure as our full-time option, but on a part-time schedule. You will work through a minimum of 25 hours per week of coursework and benefit from a structured schedule designed to keep them on track towards a career in code. While completing the program, you'll need to dedicate a part of their day-to-day in order to move through the coursework on schedule.
As a student, you will benefit from learning with a cohort of an average of up to 40 peers, and a dedicated Cohort Lead who teaches and mentors throughout the entire program schedule. You'll dedicate time to attend live study groups with your cohort lead each week, with options to fit your schedule.
Additionally, Educational Coaches serve as the Community Lead for each cohort and can help you connect with your classmates and optimize your study habits. They will both support and challenge you as you work toward your goals and celebrate the small wins that happen along the way. This non-technical coaching support is in addition to the real-time help from our Technical Coaches via our Ask A Question Feature in Learn.co.
Meet weekly with your cohort to deepen your understanding of a topic as you participate in live discussions with instructors and your peers. Study groups for each cohort are held Tuesday and Thursdays at 6pm EST, and will cover topics relevant to the lessons and labs assigned that week.
Our self-paced program provides the same rigorous curriculum and mastery standards of our full-time and part-time paces, but at a 100% flexible, self-guided schedule. This program most benefits students with prior coding experience or unpredictable schedules by providing access for up to 15 months as they guide themselves through the coursework.
Includes five sessions with an Educational Coach to help you set and stay accountable to your goals, and make steady progress at a pace that is right for you. Students also get on-demand access to Technical Coaches through the Ask A Question feature in Learn.
Collaborate with fellow students and teachers, join live study groups, pair and chat with your peers, and access a living course that features thousands of updates a year to reflect current industry trends.
