Frequently Asked Questions
What is an online coding bootcamp?
While they vary with each course and each school, online coding bootcamps are short-term and often rigorous training programs to help students learn the programming languages and development skills they need to work in tech.
Are coding bootcamps worth it?
Coding 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 coding 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, programming languages, and tools appear on the market everyday. 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, coding 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 coding 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 code, which is great, but a full-time bootcamp might not be the best route if you’re looking for a basic understanding of coding.
If your goal is to learn to the skills you need to land a job in tech, then yes, coding bootcamps do work.
What experience or requirements do you need to join a Flatiron School coding bootcamp?
We don’t require you to have prior experience to apply for any of our coding bootcamps. Our admissions requirements are being at least 18 years old, having a high school diploma, a GED or equivalent credential, having a native or highly proficient fluency in English, and completing the admissions process.
Before joining your cohort on Day 1, you will have to complete around 40 hours of coursework called Prep to learn the basics so you are prepared to get started straight away.
What is the difference between the On-campus and online Live and Flex 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’s the application process like?
The first step is to fill out a written application. Once submitted, you will receive prompts from the admissions team to schedule an interview and take a 15 min aptitude assessment. During the interview a member of the admissions team will learn about your learning needs, career goals, and help you decide whether the program is the right fit for you. If you passed your assessment, we will give you the admissions decision after your interview.
What financing options are available?
