Can I work while attending a bootcamp?

Whether you can work while enrolled in a coding bootcamp depends on the program you choose and the flexibility the program allows.

In short, whether you can work while enrolled in one of our bootcamps depends on which program you’re taking part in.

Our Immersive Program is truly a full-time, Monday through Friday experience. You will need additional time in the evenings on the weekend for study and to work on projects throughout your bootcamp. You’ll spend 30 hours a week in class, and we estimate you’ll need an additional 10-15 hours a week of study outside the classroom.

If dedicating 40+ hours per week isn't in the cards for you, consider the part-time Flex Program, which is designed with working professionals in mind. The Flex Program takes place in the evenings on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and in the morning on Saturdays. You will spend 10 hours in class and an additional 15-20 hours of study outside the classroom with this program.
