The Classroom Experience

Classroom Experience Overview University of Richmond Coding Boot Camp

UR Boot Camps blend informative lectures with individual and collaborative group exercises. Students simulate a professional environment by working independently and in teams, in class, and at home. By diving into complex homework assignments and projects, students get hands-on practice using their newly acquired skills. Through a dynamic learning experience and robust portfolio projects, you’ll get real insight into a “day in the life” of a web developer or data analyst.

To give students a truly immersive learning experience, we provide an intimate class setting with a low instructor to student ratio. In addition to our talented instructional team, students have dedicated TAs in the classroom to provide wide-ranging support.

Whether you have years of experience or none at all, this course will help you open your mind to a different way of thinking. At times, it will be challenging and stressful, but luckily there are several outlets for support.
