Le Wagon Admissions Process

Prospective students must fill out an online application. Once submitted, Le Wagon contacts the applicant for a non-technical interview. This interview allows applicants to explain their career goals and why they would be a good fit for the program.

Following the interview, applicants must complete either a beginner's web development quiz for the web development bootcamp or a math and Python quiz for the data science bootcamp.

Web development applicants have one week to complete their quiz after the interview, and data science applicants have 1-2 weeks to complete their quiz after the interview, depending on their level of coding experience.

Le Wagon sends admissions decisions within 24 hours of applicants completing their quiz.

Le Wagon Payment Options

Upfront: Le Wagon allows students to pay tuition upfront in one installment. This means the entirety of the tuition cost is paid at the start of the bootcamp.

Installments: Students may also pay their tuition in installments, meaning the cost of tuition is split between multiple payments throughout the bootcamp.

Le Wagon Student Outcomes

Outcomes reports help prospective students understand how effective a bootcamp program is. A student outcome report might include graduation rates, employment rates, or average starting salaries for graduates.

Readers should always look for outcome reports verified by a trusted third-party source like the Council on Integrity in Results Reporting (CIRR). For bootcamps that self-report student outcomes, readers should read closely to determine how the bootcamp collects its data or call the provider for more information about their data collection methods.

Le Wagon does not provide any verified bootcamp outcomes. In its 2021 outcomes report, Le Wagon found that 93% of respondents from the European campuses had found jobs after graduation, and 84% of graduates had found jobs in a technical field.
