    • What’s the non-technical interview?

      Lasting 20 minutes in-person or over video call, it gives us a chance to get to know you, your professional experience, motivation and goals for participating in the program.

    • How many students are there per class?

      To maintain a high level of interaction and instruction, each class has an average of 10 to max. 20 students (in-class).

    • Is the duration of the Bootcamps long enough?

      Absolutely. For the Full-Stack and Data Science programs, 12 weeks of intensive practice (40 hours in the classroom with an additional 20-30 for course work per week) will give you what it takes to step into one of these fields.

    • What coding level do I need?

      Though coding experience is not necessarily a prerequisite, we expect you to have been exposed to programming before, whether in industry, academia, or self-study. Motivation, hard-work, and drive are what we're most looking for.

    • I’d rather participate from another location. Can I attend the program remotely?

      Absolutely. For those interested in this option, please select it on the application form.

    • Is there a difference between the in-person and remote option?

      None at all. You’ll be joining the in-class participants for the same program and follow via our live stream platform. You’ll get the same attention from our staff as if you were on site.

    • What’s the technical interview like for the Data Science program?

      The candidate will receive an email with a list of Python tutorials to complete before the interview. The interview date and time will be set such that there is around one week to get prepared for it.
      On the day of the interview, the candidate will receive a data challenge by email and will have 2 hours to work on it. After submitting the results, a Constructor Academy team member will connect to discuss the results of the Data Challenge (around 15 min). Subsequently, a 30 minute Python coding assessment is conducted to determine the candidate’s structural and logical thinking. The whole process will take 2 hours, 45 min and be based on the tutorials sent before.
