What's the difference between the Web Development bootcamp and the AI Software Engineering Program?

Spanning a full year, this program offers a more in-depth and comprehensive learning experience compared our shorter, more intense bootcamp. You'll have more time to absorb the material, practice your skills, and dive into more advanced topics at a manageable pace. This program also integrates AI and machine learning into the web development curriculum, providing a holistic view of how these technologies can be combined. 

On the other hand, our Web Development Bootcamp is designed for rapid skill acquisition in a shorter time frame, requiring a more concentrated and intense commitment. 

Both options can lead to similar outcomes unless you want to focus more on AI, in which case you would take this program. Your choice depends on your available time and learning preferences. If you're unsure, you can talk through your options with our friendly admissions team who can help set you on the right path.


How does the admissions process work?

1. Fill out our easy non-committal Application Form.

2. Receive a call from Admissions, to find out if your motivations, long term goals, availability, and determination are a good fit for the bootcamp. It's also a chance for you to get your burning questions answered! 

3. Take a technical test in English to test your basic logic skills. This will also give you a basic understanding of the concepts you'll learn in your chosen track. No need to prepare—just make sure you have enough time to take the test uninterrupted. Once you have passed this test, our Admissions team will be in touch with you.

4. Choose how to fund your bootcamp from our selection of Financing Options and flexible payment plans. Consult your Admissions Manager if you're not sure which one is right for you.

5. Pay your deposit before the bootcamp starts to confirm your place.


Do I need my own laptop?

Nah, we got you. The 1-year program comes with a free laptop. 


Will I get an official certificate after completion of the program?

Yes, Ironhack provides a private certificate that proves that the program was completed. 


What are the requisites to access the bootcamp?

There are no knowledge requirements for our bootcamps. As long as you have sufficient proficiency in English, basic logical skills, enough time, and most importantly motivation, you're fit for this 1-year program. All of our programs have students from different backgrounds so if you're starting from scratch with your tech knowledge, you're not alone.
