Understanding our formats: full-time vs. part-time

We believe you should be able to balance your education with the rest of your life. That’s why we’ve created two ways for our students to change careers.

Full-time programs are the fastest path to a new career. As a full-time student, you’ll learn from a live instructor and partner with classmates on projects. This is the perfect format for anyone who can devote up to 50 hours per week and can stick to the Monday-Friday schedule.

Part-time programs are flexible and designed to work around your other commitments. Watch instructor recordings and complete assignments whenever you’re able to, as long as you can find up to 30 hours per week for coursework. If you need to keep working while you learn, part-time is the way to go.

Here’s a more in-depth look at our different formats to help you decide which option works best for your lifestyle and career goals.
