FUTURE iS DATA!


LEARN DATA SCIENCE ON REAL-LIFE PROBLEMS.

ABOUT

 

BaseCamp is an immersive full-time 8-week program for prospective Data Scientists. 

During 8 weeks you will deepen your theoretical knowledge, enhance your practical skills and become

a qualified Data Scientist ready for your exciting data science career.


DURATION

8 weeks split into lectures, workshops, and work on a project. Our program is timed and shaped perfectly so that you can learn how to solve real-world Data Science problems.

DATES

The next edition of BaseCamp will take place from 5th of March till 27th of April 2018 in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. 


LOCATION

Our training program takes place in Bratislava, Slovakia. Located right on the border with Hungary and Austria, Slovakia is quickly becoming a trending holiday location but also a magnet for Eastern European startup culture. Participants will spend 8 weeks in a city where past meets present, wine meets food and culture meets nightlife. Bratislava is also an ideal spot from which to explore Europe.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

From all participants we require advanced English skills (at least C1 level) and good abstract thinking. Technical skills and formal education will be considered but are not mandatory. However, we want all the students to be on the same entry level, so we reserve the right to send out some materials to go through before the bootcamp. The ability to legally reside in Austria during the program is necessary.


COSTS

The cost of BaseCamp is 5,000 Euro paid in two installments, with the first one being due two weeks after acceptance. 

NUMBER OF PEOPLE PER BATCH

We accept 8 to 10 people per batch. The selection is based on the quality of your application, remote interviews and interest on the side of our partners.
