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.

  • Lighthouse Labs apply online

    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!

  • coding bootcamp interview


    You can book in for your group interview during the application process, otherwise you will be emailed with a link to book it in later. We want to meet you, get to know you better and talk all about bootcamp. This is also your opportunity to ask us anything and potentially to meet some of your future classmates!

  • coding bootcamp assessments

    Logic and Technical Assessments

    After the group interview, successful candidates will be sent over some material to study so they can prepare for our logic and technical assessments. You do not need to have prior experience in coding or data science to perform well on these tests, and we will provide you with all the resources you need to successfully complete them! These are both multiple choice and done online on your own time within a 2-week period of your group interview.

  • coding bootcamp Prep Modules

    Prep Modules

    The first step to becoming a developer is laying your foundation with our Prep Modules. The 70 hours you'll spend on completing prep will introduce the basic technologies you'll use throughout bootcamp, including: HTML, CSS, Ruby, JavaScript, and git. You are required to complete the Prep Modules before your first day of bootcamp.

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 wire transfers 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!

  • Bootcamp

    Length: 12 weeks on-site

    The mandatory 70hr prep modules must be completed at least one week before the start of on-site Bootcamp.

  • Demo Day

    Final Week

    Present your final project to the masses!

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 designated through PTIB in British Columbia and registered as a PCC in Ontario and Alberta which qualifies some provincial funding pots.
