Depending on your situation and where you would like to do the bootcamp, you will potentially need a tourist or business visa. Please reach out to the city's Admissions Manager for more information and possible assistance.

Extra information: for mainland China, in some cases, we can invite you on a Business Visa (M). Duration and number of entries vary according to your nationality. Please consult our team to have more information.

We usually open applications 4 to 5 months in advance. You will see the next batch dates on the page of each city on Le Wagon’s website (accessible from the top navigation bar). If you're unsure about anything, feel free to reach out to the Admissions Manager of a specific city. They will gladly answer all of your questions and contact you as soon as we open the applications for the upcoming batch.

Le Wagon fulfils the exact same mission in all of our locations. The curriculum is the same everywhere as are all of our materials (lectures and exercises). Teachers and teaching assistants are hired and trained in the same way all around the globe.

Our advice to help choosing a city would be:

  • Environment: it is ideal to do the bootcamp in a city where you would like to build something - either take part in its tech community, launch your startup, or find a job
  • Quality of life: can I afford it ? Would I like the climate ? etc.
  • Language: check the language in which the bootcamp is actually done (our bootcamp is taught in English in most of our cities, but there are several exceptions - in Sāo Paulo and Belo Horizonte, the lectures are in Portuguese, in France the bootcamp is in French, etc.)

It is very rare that candidates abandon ship once they have been accepted to the course. Nevertheless, we always open a waiting list when bootcamps are full, in case this happens! To join the waiting list, you will have to to go through the exact same application process.

This prepwork is absolutely mandatory and must be completed before the beginning of the bootcamp.

If you apply to our Data Science bootcamp, our Admissions Manager will also ensure that you already have some prerequisite skills in programming and Mathematics since the course builds up on these foundations.

Very quickly after the interview, you'll receive a notification to let you know if you've passed the interview and will provide you a link to an online test, taking about 2 hours, to check your mathematics and programming skills.

In your online applications, we're only looking for one thing: motivation. Our bootcamps are very intense, fast-paced and demanding, and we will select only the most motivated students to get onboard. Make sure that you explain why you want to join Le Wagon in your application - the more details you give us, the better chance you have to get selected for the interview. To apply for out Data Science bootcamp, a basic mathematic & programming background is also required.

To apply, simply complete the application form on our website by selecting:

  • The course (Web Development, Data Science)
  • The format (9-week full-time, 24-week part-time)
  • The city you're interested in
  • An introduction of why you want to join us and information about your personal project (if you have one!)
This is a quick process which only takes a few minutes. We will then contact you to schedule an interview (either in-person or online) to understand your motivations in more detail and answer any questions you have about our bootcamps.
