Why your course is 9 weeks?It used to be 8 weeks actually 🙂 But to make sure that students do the prep work and get the best from us during the course we’ve included a prep week into the bootcamp! With smaller groups we have and student driven approach we cover all the material in this time. After testing our curriculum we have proven results that 9 weeks is the best length to make this dynamic, comprehensive and not overstretched so that students stay focused without getting exhausted by endless studies.
