How will I know if I’ve been selected for the Bootcamp?
Applicants who have successfully completed the online application with high enough scores in the tests will receive an email a few weeks later, inviting you to schedule a check-in meeting in Johannesburg with the WeThinkCode_ team.
When do the selection Bootcamps take place, and when does the course start?
There are three 4-week intense selection Bootcamps in January, February and March 2016.
If you pass the aptitude test, you will be asked to choose which Bootcamp you wish to attend.
Successful candidates from the Bootcamps will start the course full time in May 2016.

There are three deadlines to submit your application; apply for the January Bootcamp by 30 November 2015, the February Bootcamp by 30 December 2015 and the March Bootcamp by 31 January 2016.
How long is the course?
Students are expected to complete the course in approximately 2 years.

This internship will be followed by a further 8 months (approximately) of course work, in order to qualify for the second and final 4 month internship.
How much does it cost?
The course is 100% free for WeThinkCode_ students. Corporate sponsors pay your tuition, and in exchange you will complete two (paid) 4 month internships with them during the course of your studies. Upon successful completion of the course, you will be required to work back the value of your sponsorship (typically 1-2 years) with your sponsor.
How many students will be accepted?
100 students will be accepted into the first class of 2016.

With that said, if you are not a valid South African citizen, the onus is on you to prove that you have the required visas and legal permissions to live, work and study in South Africa for the duration of the course and your subsequent work obligations.
