    My bootcamp experience was great because there were so many other people with different levels of tech knowledge who were just starting down this path. There were other people, just like me, who never wrote a script but were excited when they completed a task. The pace of learning was easy to orient to and challenging enough to keep you going.

    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 12 weeks with Monday through Friday classes. Be sure to make note of the timezone when choosing your class time! Classes take place from:

    • 10:00am-6:00pm ET

    Due to its immersive nature, students of the Full-Time curriculum should not maintain any employment during their 12 weeks of study. Students can expect to spend at least 32.5 hours in class each week and 8-10 hours on outside assignments or studying.

    Even working just a few hours a week puts students at a disadvantage in making the most of their bootcamp experience.

    • AM Demos & Collaborative Exercises

    • Lunch & Fitness Break

    • PM Demos & Collaborative Exercises

    Hours
     

    Knowledge and skills related to the competencies prospective employers are looking for are introduced by your instructor through active demonstrations. Then, you work with others as you complete student exercises in a virtual lab reinforcing what you have learned. These exercises are inquiry-based and often go deeper than some of the areas covered in demos. If your team needs help solving a challenge, an instructional team member will be there to assist. At the end of the session, you’ll discuss what you learned with the larger class.

    Use this free time to recharge. In many cohorts, students have weekly virtual lunch breaks with instructional team members and classmates to catch up on the week.

    After lunch, you’ll continue gaining new knowledge as your instructor introduces 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 team up with other students. Together, you’ll solve challenges designed around real-world problems in cybersecurity. During this time an instructional team member is available to help you through any problems you may get stuck on. The session closes with a class discussion.

    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 weekday classes held on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. You can choose which class time works best for you in the application process. Be sure to make note of the timezone when choosing your class time!

    • 9:30am-12:30pm ET
    • 7:00pm-10:00pm ET
    • 9:00pm-12:00am ET

    In addition to classroom lessons, part-time students can anticipate spending 6-8 hours studying and working on outside assignments each week.

    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.

    EXAMPLE SCHEDULE

    Hours
     

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

    Through active demonstrations, your instructor introduces knowledge and skills related to the competencies prospective employers seek. After this, you will participate in a virtual lab to reinforce what you have learned through student exercises. The exercises are inquiry-based and may cover deeper topics than some demos. Our instructional team members will assist your peer group in solving challenges. To conclude class, your instructor reviews the topics covered and ensures you understand your assignments.

    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.

    Daily activities may be subject to change.
