FAQs

It's a structured 8-week program where you have dedicated lessons and activities each week - each week new lessons unlock, and once they have been unlocked they stay open forever. All the lessons are available on-demand (so you can watch them any time of day) and if you fall a little behind you'll have plenty of opportunities to catch up. We understand life happens, and our team are here to support you every step of the way.

It will require a minimum of 6-8 hours of your time per week to complete the course, and these hours can be entirely suited around your schedule, there is no set times or days needed.

One of the most important parts of our digital bootcamp model is the hands-on support provided by mentors. We have numerous challenges for support and every single lesson includes a practical activity that you can share with the mentors for one-on-one feedback. We also have weekly Q&As where you can ask questions specific to your needs or to go more in-depth in the content offered. It's the most hands-on, supportive program of it's kind and one of the things our alumni rave about most in their reviews.

Our digital bootcamps are so much more than an online course, and worlds away from DIY learning on youtube. They are in-depth, comprehensive, and practical. They go beyond surface level knowledge to share insights into the entire professional workflow and client process that most people never share.

We consolidate absolutely everything you need to learn into one program so that you don't have to waste time on videos that overlap or contradict and fill in all the gaps so that you are ready to launch your own business. And we support you personally every single step of the way. For a full explanation of how we're different, scroll down to the video below titled 'So much more than an online course'.

You have access to all the course materials (videos, templates, resources, etc) for life. After the bootcamp you stay part of a private community just for your cohort, with the other students who have attended the same session as you as well as an alumni community for all of our students from that bootcamp. We'll continue supporting you through the community, where we encourage you to ask for help, share your wins, etc and we'll continue to share updated tips, tricks and resources.

We regularly update the course materials and you'll continue to receive all of those new lessons and resources as well.

In the event of exceptional circumstances preventing you from attending during the 8-week portion, our team can transfer you to another cohort at no additional cost

For each of our bootcamps, you can choose to pay the tuition in full upfront or pay a deposit and the balance in interest-free installments. Our payment plans are customised to suit each student, so for more details send us a message via live chat or email hello@instituteofcode.com to discuss it with a course advisor.

Yes! As soon as you enroll (either with a $250 deposit or paying in full) you will receive instant access to the pre-coursework inside our custom-built learning hub, where you can start learning (and getting mentor support) right away! We have over a dozen tutorials ready for you to start learning right away.

Our programs are all zero-to-hero and you don't need any previous experience. We have tutorials and support starting from the absolute beginning through to advanced skills and building a successful business. Most of our past students had zero previous experience when they joined the program, but if you already do have some experience there is still plenty to learn. If you consider your current skills intermediate to advanced feel free to reach out to our course advisor via live chat and we can help you figure out if the bootcamp is the right fit for you - generally speaking unless you already consider yourself an expert and have built a profitable business with a steady flow of clients, there will be plenty of content for you to learn.

For the web development bootcamp all you need is a laptop computer :) All the software required is free and available for both Mac & PC, and web development doesn't tend to require a new computer - if you can comfortably handle google docs and email, you will be fine with coding.

Students often ask if they need to own a manual camera for the photography digital bootcamp and while it's definitely recommended, it's not required - 95% of the lessons could be completed with a phone as your camera and you can focus on the other aspects of photography (like composition, lighting, posing, etc). Of course if you decide to pursue a career in photography you will likely need to invest in professional equipment at some point, but we walk you through that in the gear guide lessons and a full set-up can be as little as $500. Since you have lifetime access to all the course materials, some students choose to focus on learning the skills first, and then investing in gear in the future once they are ready to start landing clients.

For the advanced Bali bootcamp a camera is required, but if you don't have one we can help you to rent one for as little as $100 for the duration of the bootcamp

Yes! The business module makes up almost a 1/3 of the each course, and we also weave this topic through the entire course - with practical case studies, examples, and walk-throughs. We provide all the templates & resources you need to hit the ground running and start your own creative business (no cookie-cutters here, we teach you how to find a niche and business structure that works for your unique circumstances) and we give you one-on-one feedback for your own 12-month digital strategy.

Around one in five students who join our program already have their own business - a fashion label, product business, restaurant or hotel, etc. All of the skills in our courses, can either be applied to clients as a creative agency or to your own business. The web development bootcamp empowers you to have full control over your businesses website, saving you thousands in developer fees and giving you the freedom to create a site that perfectly reflects your brand, even as it grows. The photography bootcamp empowers you to create all of your own photography content, and with brands often spending thousands (if not tens of thousands) per year on photography, being able to do it yourself is an incredible asset. And of course, the marketing bootcamp gives you the tools to create their own marketing strategy, and understand exactly how to build a brand, attract your ideal target audience and grow your business. If you aren't sure which course would be right for you, or how what you'll learn might be relevant to your business then send us a message via live chat and tell us a little bit about your business.

It has everything you need to start a creative business you can run from anywhere. Then if you want to take you skills to the next level, grow your portfolio and fast-track your success join the Bali bootcamp & career accelerator.

If you enroll in the digital bootcamp before the 1st Sep 2022, you can apply the full tuition as a credit towards the Bali bootcamp in 2022 or 2023 (essentially getting the digital course for free!), or if you want to dive straight in and enroll in the Bali bootcamp before the 1st September, you'll receive access to the digital bootcamp free.

We know the situation is evolving regularly, and we've adapted our policies to match offering flexibility to every student enrolled in the in-person Bali bootcamp to move their travel dates as needed if they aren't able to attend due to covid travel restrictions.

We're also giving every student enrolled for an in-person bootcamp the ability to join our digital bootcamp at no additional cost.

If attending our Bali Bootcamp is on your bucketlist, but you aren't sure when you'll be ready to attend in-person we recommend that you enroll in one of our upcoming digital bootcamps before the 1st Sep -- we'll be giving you a chance to apply 100% of the tution you pay for the digital bootcamp as a credit towards the in-person bootcamp when you can attend (So for example if you enroll with the early bird discount for $1800, then you'll receive a $1800 discount off the in-person bootcamp later).
