Step 1 → Apply

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

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 → Technical review

After writing and submitting some code on Learn.co, you’ll attend a live interview session with an instructor to assess your understanding of the material.

What is a Technical Review?

Step 4 → Admissions decision

Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within a couple of days.

Step 5 → Enrol

When you enrol, you'll choose the pace that best suits you. Our admissions team is happy to discuss this decision with you.

What you'll learn: data science & machine learning

From Python to Machine Learning, our 15-week data science training program gives you the breadth and depth needed to become a well-rounded data scientist. You’ll  also leave with an understanding of how to discover new techniques as your career progresses.

Every 3 weeks you’ll be introduced to a new module that builds off the learnings of the previous section while allowing you enough time to dive into each area for a thorough understanding of the subject matter.

Frequently asked questions

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 trainers 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 organised 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 London where we offer our in-person course or are you willing to move here for the duration of the program? Flatiron School’s on-campus students spend 15 weeks of intensive work at our London 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 teaching you the skills you need to get your first job as a data scientist.

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. Afterwards, students applying to a full-time or part-time course must complete the data science admissions assessment. After this point, students you will receive an admissions decision within a few business days. 

Can I apply for financing?

Once you have been accepted into the program, you may work with Future Finance. Visit the Future Finance website to get a personalised quote and repayment details.

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.
