The Flatiron School’s WeWork campus in San Francisco is a new addition to its coding bootcamp lineup. Located in the Mid-Market area of downtown San Francisco, this new campus offers programming resources to the city’s growing population of prospective tech workers. The WeWork campus is designed to immerse students in a modern, clean, and comfortable environment, filled with entrepreneurs, instructors, and fellow aspiring programmers. The Flatiron School’s San Francisco campus offers immersive bootcamps for software engineering, UX/UI design, and data science. In addition to its thorough curriculum, the Flatiron School offers job placement resources and income share agreements.
The Flatiron School hosts three bootcamps at its San Francisco location, all of which are full-time. The Flatiron School’s programs aren’t all the same length—software engineering and data science take 15 weeks, and UX/UI design takes 24. Flatiron School states that the reason its UX/UI design course takes longer is because of the extra time required to teach design along with coding—which further increases the quality of education in this program. In-person classes run Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The Flatiron School also offers self-paced and online bootcamps, which can last up to 15 months.
The Flatiron School boasts high job placement rates and starting salaries. Its job placement statistics are transparent and well-researched. According to Flatiron School, 93% of the school’s San Francisco graduates were employed in tech with an average starting salary of $74,566.
The Flatiron School’s coding bootcamp tuition is $17,000, and students have many ways to pay. While upfront payment is an option for some, students can also cover tuition with monthly payments (starting at $529/month for 36 months with $1,000 down) or income share agreements. For those who don’t already know, income share agreements are designed to incentivize schools to prepare students for jobs. In short, the school doesn’t get paid until graduates land a job with a salary above a certain threshold. Once they do, graduates pay a small percentage of their income for a maximum of 48 payments, and then they’re free and clear.
