LEARN DATA SCIENCE ON REAL-LIFE PROBLEMS.
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.
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.
The next edition of BaseCamp will take place 4.3. - 26.4.2019 in the capital of Slovakia - Bratislava. Applications will close on 31.1.2019
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.
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 the EU during the program is necessary.
The cost of Basecamp is 5,000 Euro paid in three installments: the first 500 Euro due two weeks after acceptance to the program, 2,000 Euro two weeks prior to the beginning of the program and 2,500 Euro within the first two weeks of the program.
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.

I couldn’t believe a few weeks into the program how much I had learned. The selection of topics was great, as well as the balance between theory and practice. The small class size allows for very attentive mentoring. The final project is a great way to get some exposure to real data and dive deeper into some topics. I would definitely recommend Basecamp to anyone starting a career in data science!

I really enjoyed the Basecamp experience! It helped me bridge the gap between the online courses and the first job. Above all the final project was great. It was not just another toy exercise but a collaboration with a start-up including their real world data. In the end, this was the key to get the my first job as a data scientist. And I was even lucky to meet my future employer at the hiring day.

It brought me a long way in the space of only two months and I am much more confident with data and machine learning now. This is all thanks to the patience and encouragement of Juraj and the other mentors. Topics were taught by experts in their respective fields and were taught in an engaging way. I really enjoyed it and I have taken so much away from the experience.

The training program takes place in Bratislava, Slovakia. It is a full-time on-site program. Unfortunaltey we can't allow remote participation. We are recently working on launching another edition of BaseCamp that will take place in different locations all over the world. You can stay updated on these editions by following us on Facebook or by subscribing to our newsletter.
The only prerequisits are advanced English (at least C1 level) and good abstract thinking. However, we want all students to be on the same level initially, so we reserve the right to send the participant some materials to go through before the beginning of the bootcamp. There are no other requirements regarding age, skills or formal education. The participant must be eligible to study and live in EU countries.
Due to focus on quality and personal attention we limit number of people to 8-10 per batch.
The price of the program is 5,000 Euro, with the first 500 Euro due two weeks after acceptance to the program. This is to secure the spot in the bootcamp, since we have a waiting list of other applicants. The following installment of 2000 EUR must be paid two weeks prior to the beginning of the program, and the third installment (2500 Euro) is due before the end of the second week of the program.
