A Day in the Life of a Fullstack Academy Cyber Student

You’ll get a full classroom experience with your classmates and instructors through a mix of live lectures, workshops, and team projects. No two days are the same, but here’s an example of what a typical day looks like:

Full-Time Schedule

The Full-Time Fullstack Academy Cybersecurity Bootcamp is 13 weeks with Monday through Friday classes.

Due to its immersive nature, students of the Full-Time curriculum should not maintain any employment during their 13 weeks of study. Even working just a few hours a week puts students at a disadvantage in making the most of their bootcamp experience.

Hours

Your morning starts with an optional review session to answer questions from the prior day. Your Fullstack Academy Cyber Instructor leads the class through the prior day’s workshop, live demonstrations, and takes questions along the way.

This portion of the day starts with a 45-minute live lecture and demonstration covering the previous night’s homework, led by your instructor.

After the lecture, you’ll go into the workshop, pairing up with another student to tackle a set of exercises designed by your instructor. Workshops allow you to put into practice the skills you learned from morning lecture and the previous night’s homework. The workshops are challenging and often go deeper than some of the areas covered in the related lecture. If your team needs help solving a challenge during the workshop, a Teaching Fellow will be there to assist. At the end of the workshop, students discuss the activity with the larger class.

Students use this free time to recharge. In many cohorts, students choose to have weekly lunches with their Fellow and a group of classmates to catch up on the week.

After lunch, your instructor will teach another 45-minute live lecture and demonstration introducing a new topic or set of skills.

Collaboration and teamwork is essential to thriving in a cybersecurity career, so during the afternoon session you’ll once again pair up with another student. Together, you’ll solve challenges designed specifically for the material just covered in lecture. During this time a Teaching Fellow is available to help you through any problems you may get stuck on. The workshop closes with a class discussion.

At the end of the day, your instructor touches base on what was covered that day and makes sure students have a clear understanding of the night’s homework.

Part-Time Schedule

The Part-Time Fullstack Academy Cybersecurity Bootcamp is 26 weeks with classes held on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You can choose which class time works best for you in the application process.

  • 9:30am-12:50pm ET
  • 6:30pm-9:50pm ET

EXAMPLE SCHEDULE

Hours

During this time, your Fullstack Academy Cyber Instructor addresses any questions from the previous class.

Following the recap, class time pivots to a live demonstration and lecture that covers the key points from the homework.

During workshops, you’ll pair up with another student to tackle a set of exercises designed by your instructor. Workshops allow you to put into practice the skills and concepts covered in the lecture and homework. If your team needs help solving a challenge during the workshop, your Fullstack Cyber Teaching Fellow is there to assist. At the end of the workshop, students discuss the activity with the larger class, and the instructor answers any outstanding questions.


Class time options vary by month and are subject to change. To see available class times for your cohort of choice, complete your application or schedule a call with a student advisor.
