FAQ

All you need to know before applying to our Cybersecurity course.

Application, Selection, Preparation

How can I apply to a course?

To apply to our Cybersecurity course, you just need to complete and submit the application form on our landing page. This is a rather quick process, that takes a few minutes. We will then schedule an interview (by Zoom or on-site) to understand your goals more in details.

Are there any prerequisites for the bootcamp?

You will need English reading proficiency, basic math and logic skills, and most of all, drive and motivation to learn in an accelerated environment.

How will you evaluate my online application?

In your online application, we're only looking for one main thing: motivation. Our bootcamps are very intense, fast-paced and demanding, and we will select only the most motivated students to get onboard. Make sure that you explain why you want to join Le Wagon in your application - the more details you give us, the better chance you have to get selected for the interview.

What's the interview about?

Our Admissions Manager will mostly assess your motivation as well as your professional and personal projects during the interview, to make sure they are consistent with the outcomes of the bootcamp.

What are the next steps after the interview?

After admission, you need to complete the self-paced prework module (~20 hours) before the start of the bootcamp, whose objective is to bring everyone to the same level of technical expertise.

Student profile

I have no prior background in cybersecurity, can I apply to the bootcamp?

Yes! The bootcamp requires no prior cybersecurity knowledge or experience. While it is not a requirement, a background in technology can be an advantage.

Is there a typical profile for a Le Wagon student?

Our students all have very different profiles. They are between 18 and 55, they all come from various background but they share the same curiosity and enthusiasm. Thus, spending a few weeks at Le Wagon is not only an incredible human experience, it also helps you build an astonishing network for your after-bootcamp life to keep learning and find amazing job or freelance opportunities!

I'm under 18 years old, can I apply?

You need to be 18 to enroll for the course. However, you can apply if you are 17 as long as you turn 18 before the start of the bootcamp.

I'm over 50 years old, should I apply?

We’ve had students over 50 in the past and they’ve succeeded in learning new tech skills and starting new careers like anyone else. Age doesn’t make any differences in the recruitment process to get onboard, the only thing we consider is your commitment and your motivation.

I currently don't have an idea of a final project to work on. Is it a problem?

Don't worry about it! Students with a project are invited to pitch their idea during the bootcamp while people without one are welcome to team up with them.

Do I need a laptop?

In order to participate effectively in the bootcamp, you will need a laptop able to run video conferencing. This includes an up-to-date operating system, a stable high-speed internet connection, and a working camera and microphone. For a more detailed list please refer to the Zoom System Requirements. In addition, a second screen is recommended for optimal experience.

⚠️  A Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad won't do. Those are not real computers. If you need a piece of advice on what  buy, please contact the staff.
