Our Students


Our students come from all backgrounds and walks of life. They’re weird, they’re quirky, and they stick out in a crowd.  Neuroscientists, accountants, teachers, and musicians have all come through our doors. At Lighthouse Labs we are looking for a rare breed: someone who is seeking an opportunity for extraordinary growth, is ready to thrive in an intense learning environment, and LOVES code.

Admissions Process.

Our students put their trust in us, so we hold ourselves to the highest standards to ensure that everyone coming into our program is set up for success.

The application process takes 3 steps:

  • coding bootcamp prep course

    Apply online

    A short 5-10 minute application for you to introduce yourself, including your education and coding experience, plus your super power. You know, the important details that will help us get to know you. New cohorts fill up on a rolling basis so make sure to submit your application as soon as possible!

  • Lighthouse labs apply online

    Interview

    Our admissions team will get in touch (quickly!) after reviewing your application and invite you for an interview. We want to meet you, show you our space and give you a chance to see the current cohort in action! This is also your opportunity to ask us anything.

    Prep course

    4 weeks, part-time, remote work.
    The first step to becoming a developer is laying your foundation with our Prep Course. The 40-60 hours you’ll spend on completing prep will introduce the basic technologies you’ll use throughout bootcamp. You are required to complete the Prep Course remotely before your first day on campus.

Key Dates.

Once you are accepted into a cohort, your place in the program will only be reserved once we have received your deposit. Deposits can be paid by credit card, and we are able to accept cheques, wire transfers, bank drafts, or cash for the remainder of your tuition. Your tuition is due 2 weeks before your start date.

  • When to Apply


    6-10 weeks before your intended start date.

    For bootcamp, we recommend you apply 6-10 weeks before your desired start date as our cohorts start on a rolling basis. The more time you have for prep and stretch goals, the better!

Financing.

There are many ways a student can finance their tuition, including bank loans or a line of credit. If you have a good credit rating, they may be able to offer you a lower interest rate.

Some students are successful in applying for grants or bursaries to attend our programs and we recommend you research what is available in your area! We are Accredited through PTIB in British Columbia and registered as a PCC in Ontario which qualifies some provincial funding pots.
