How do I enroll in the Data Analytics Bootcamp?

There are 4 steps in the admissions process. Read through this blog post to see how you can successfully complete your application and become an official student in our Data Analytics Bootcamp.

If you’re reading this right now, then it’s possible that you’re already excited about the Data Analytics Bootcamp!

Key points in this Admissions Team blog post:

A. What are the steps in the admissions process?

B. What are the important dates for the latest cohort?

C. What are the tuition payment plans? 

We’ve compiled everything you need to know about completing your application and becoming an official Data Analytics Bootcamp student. In this blog post we take the key points above and go into more detail for each one. Let’s start!

What are the steps in the admissions process?

Step 1: Online Application

The admissions process begins with you simply signing up on the Data Analytics Bootcamp landing page. Signing up online is your official entry and message to the Eskwelabs Admissions team that you are interested in becoming one of our program students.

Clicking "APPLY NOW" leads you to the free Aral-Aral for Data Analytics Learning Management System or LMS.

Reminder: Aral-Aral for Data Analytics is the free prep course that comes with your Data Analytics Bootcamp. This contains important forms like the scholarship form (if you intend to apply for a scholarship) and the Pathfinder assessment exam.

Step 2: Assessment

You are free to look at the material inside the Aral-Aral for Data Analytics prep course at any time, but the Eskwelabs Admissions team urges you to complete the assessment as soon as possible. Depending on the Cohort you are applying for, we advise you to be mindful of the assessment exam deadline.

As of late September and October 2022, we have retired the Data Analytics Bootcamp assessment exam and the Data Science Fellowship assessment exam in favor of the brand new Pathfinder assessment exam.

What is the Pathfinder assessment exam?

The Pathfinder Test is Eskwelabs' multi-faceted test designed to provide the learner information about their data skills, how they can leverage it, and opportunities to learn with it.

The test consists of the following parts:

  1. Personal Biography
  2. Data Skills Assessment
  3. Data Tools and Path Self-Evaluation
  4. Learning Style Preferences
  5. Motivation

How different is the Pathfinder assessment exam from the old individual program assessment exams?

The Pathfinder is more holistic. Not only does it assess your baseline level of data skills but it also explores your learning style, motivations, and more.

Also, more encouragingly, the Pathfinder does not result in a "pass" or "fail" kind of outcome. Instead, it emphasizes the best Eskwelabs program that is fit for your skillset.

-> Meaning, if you are applying directly for the Data Analytics Bootcamp (DAB), and the Pathfinder assessment exam sees a perfect match, then you are recommend for DAB!

-> But if you are overqualified, you will be recommend to the Data Science Fellowship (DSF).

-> And if you still need more prep time on your Excel skills, you will be recommended to take Data Literacy Skillscourse instead—or perhaps recommended to go through Aral-Aral for Data Analytics again or once more.

Where can I find the Pathfinder assessment exam?

When you apply for the Data Analytics Bootcamp, you'll be led to the free Aral-Aral for Data Analytics Learning Management System (LMS). Once you enter the LMS and click "Curriculum," you will see at the very top of the page the option to take the Pathfinder assessment exam.

Step 3: Fit Interview

Once you have completed and passed the assessment, a representative from the Admissions team will contact you via email to schedule a 30 minute interview to get to know you and your reasons for joining the bootcamp a little bit more.

Whether or not you pass the interview, you will hear back from our admissions team about the status of your application.

Pro tip: Be mindful of new messages in your email inbox! Just to be extra safe, you can always check your SPAM folders, too.

Step 4: Tuition Payment

Once you pass the interview, you will be asked to select your tuition option or financing plan, and complete pre-bootcamp requirements such as signing the contract and filling out the acceptance form.
