How long is the course?
Students are expected to complete the course in approximately 2 years.
The work is project based, and it is estimated that most candidates will earn their first 4 month internship after 8 months of full time course work.
This internship will be followed by a further 8 months (approximately) of course work, in order to qualify for the second and final 4 month internship.
How much does it cost?
The course is 100% free for WeThinkCode_ students. Corporate sponsors pay your tuition, and in exchange you will complete two (paid) 4 month internships with them during the course of your studies. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be required to work back the value of your sponsorship (typically 1-2 years) with your sponsor.
Do I need a computer?
No, WeThinkCode_ will be equipped with enough computers to provide 1 for each student most of the time.
This is another reason to why you have to come to campus everyday, because you’ll find everything you need to do the projects and develop your skills at WeThinkCode_.
