Our program moves quickly and our students embrace that challenge. No experience beyond high school algebra and comfort with computers is necessary to apply. But we require students to demonstrate the aptitude to learn data science by completing our pre-work before day one. The prework also introduces you to foundational math and Python programming skills required to succeed in the course.

You have questions; we have answers

Are there prerequisites to apply to Online Data Science Bootcamp?

While there are no prerequisites to our online data science course and we welcome beginners, we do recommend exploring our free Data Science Bootcamp Prep course before applying. It’s important for two key reasons:

  • The easiest way to determine if you want to pursue a career in data science is to see if you like coding. It’s impossible to know that if you’ve never written a line of code.

  • We want to fill our online community with people who are who see data science as a passion, people who want to launch lifelong careers as data scientists. It’s much easier to show that you’re passionate and dedicated by taking the initiative to get started first. Even if you’ve only worked through a few lessons, showing a little effort and curiosity about data science speaks volumes in your application.

Should I attend your in-person or online bootcamp? What’s the difference?

That depends on a few important factors. What’s your learning style? Where are you in life right now? What kind of experience are you looking for?

We recommend thinking of it like exercise. Some people just need a pair of sneakers and can run outside. Some people want access to the best equipment so they join a gym, or to be part of a community and they do Crossfit. Some people want to take organized classes, and some need to go away for yoga retreats and focus on nothing but that. Ultimately, there’s no right or wrong way to get fit. It’s about knowing your goals and knowing what brings the best out of you.

The same is true with learning. Do you want a rigid schedule or to learn at your own pace? Do you do better in a quiet environment or surrounded by people? Do you want to focus on this full time or not?

Here are a few other things that may help:

  • Location

    : Do you live in New York City where we offer our in-person course or are you willing to move here  for the duration of the program? Flatiron School’s in-person students spend 15 weeks of intensive work at our NYC campus, whereas online students can learn anywhere they have a solid internet connection. (Note that in order to be eligible for both Flatiron School’s job guarantee, you must be 18 or older and legally able to work in the US or the U.K.)

  • Pace

    : Do you prefer to immerse yourself in a flood of information, or take things at your own pace? Our in-person immersive and full-time online course progresses very quickly, though with robust pre-work and plenty of resources to help you along the way. With our part-time and self-paced Online Data Science Bootcamps, you can move at a pace that works for you and around your schedule. You can also decide whether it’s worth your time to quit your job and pursue these studies full-time or to fit your studies around your job.

End Goal: All programs are focused on getting you a job as a data scientist after graduation. Although the in-person immersive is based in New York City, each program offers placements all over the United States.

What's the application process like?

The first step is to fill out a written application. Once submitted, you should hear back from our admissions team on the next step within 2 business days. If your application is chosen to move forward, you will be invited to schedule a video call with a member of the admissions team to get to know you better. After this point, students receive an admissions decision within a few business days. Students must complete a technical interview when applying to the full-time or part-time course pacing options.

Can I apply for financing?

Once you have been accepted into the program, you may apply for financing through one of our lending partners. We work with Skills Fund and Climb, who have helped many Flatiron students secure loans. We recommend waiting until after you have been accepted into the program before applying for a loan.
