You will also have access to a complete guide to kick-start your tech career after the course: boost your portfolio, prepare for technical interviews, leverage our 23,000+ alumni community, but also to lots of useful Slack channels to find jobs or freelance opportunities.

Our local team will introduce you to the right people depending on your goal and you will meet with inspiring alumni who will come back to share their post-bootcamp experiences, like how they found a job, started their own company or freelancing career.

These are some career services we will provide:

  • Networking events, job fairs, career workshops and office hours with alumni or tech recruiters
  • Coaching sessions with our Talent Manager or local alumni
  • Resources our Career Playbook
  • Introductions to our network of hiring partners through our Hiring Newsletter
  • Career week with practical workshops (from building a portfolio to inspiring talks)

If you're unable to join our full-time course, you can consider joining our part-time cohort. Requiring an approximate commitment of 16 hours per week, enjoy a mix of pre-recorded on-demand lectures and live lectures while engaging in interactive sessions from the comfort of your home. This program is perfect for those looking to balance work and life, and it's led by expert instructors in a collaborative learning environment, complete with teachers, teaching assistants, and fellow students similarly to our full-time bootcamp.

Funding options are available for many of our online students, depending on your country of residence and any eligibility criteria to obtain funding support within that country.

To find out, simply select your country of residence on our financing page to discover what options are available to you. 

If you have more than one option, during your admissions interview we will help you to choose the best option available for you.

If you're unsure, feel free to reach out by email to our admissions team at online@lewagon.org to learn more about local funding options in your country.

In most cities, the bootcamp is taught in English.

In French cities, the program is in French. You will have a 1h30 lecture in the morning in French, and a 1h30 live-code in the evening in French as well. So, if you don't understand French correctly, you won't be able to attend the bootcamp in France.

In some other cities (São Paulo, Shanghai, Chengdu, Tokyo) specific sessions are organised in other languages (Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese). You can check the language of the next batch on the "Apply" page.

Extra info: all the challenges' instructions and written documentation are in English, so all students must have a good level and understanding or written English, even in cities where lectures are given in another language.

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

  • The course
  • The format (full-time or 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.

Data recruiters are actively seeking Data Engineers with a solid combination of technical and soft skills, along with sufficient experience to navigate complex situations. Consequently, this Bootcamp is not accessible without prior technical or coding experience. The prerequisite skills required are a good understanding of SQL and Python (or another back-end language), either from your professional experience or software engineering studies. If you're new to the Tech or Data field and seeking a career in these areas, you might consider our other Bootcamps: Web Development, Data Analytics or Data Science - these could be a great fit for you!
