How is Xccelerate different from the other institutes?

Xccelerate was founded to address the main concerns that our students found lacking in traditional offline and even online learning environments. What you will find with us that does not come standard with a majority of other options is:

- Our dedication to practical hands-on training environments that keep you accountable to your own success but also provide access to a modern curriculum with the aid of expert instructors.

- For our immersive programs, we provide an in-house career support team as opposed to many other institutes where you are left to fend for yourself. Your job search progress will be closely followed up by our career consultants throughout the duration of the immersive program and even after graduation.

- Our career team organizes various career events, e.g. networking evenings, guest sharing, workshops, etc. With such a commitment, we have achieved 91% successful hiring rate in the previous cohorts. Your success is our success!

- Access to an always growing tech community. All Xccelerate students are invited to join our exclusive learning community, which is a platform of sharing and receiving news related to tech, such as the latest tech inventions, tech-talent roles openings, etc, allowing alumni and all stakeholders to discuss.

I do not have any tech background, are these courses suitable for me?

Our bootcamp programs are completely immersive. We teach from zero and expect you to have job-ready skills after the course. While it is not fully required to have pre-existing hard tech skills before the course, we highly recommend completing pre-course prep work that will be assigned before the course begins to best set you up to succeed.

The immersive courses are engineered to produce the best possible outcomes within 16 weeks, therefore students should fully understand the commitment and work ethic required to complete the program.

I am not sure which full-time and/or part-time courses I should take, is there a way to erase my concern?

You can schedule a free course consultation with us by emailing admissions@xccelerate.co where we will address your current career situation as well as your desired outcomes to help point you in the right direction.

Are there any trial classes for me to have a basic understanding of the courses?

We do not offer trial classes at the moment as it turns out to be quite distracting for current students and instructors, but we recommend you to schedule a campus tour with our Admissions Manager at +852 68838583. You can observe the class and talk to our instructors if necessary to learn more about the course.

How many students in each section of the courses? Would it be possible that the instructors might not be able to take care of all the students?

There are usually 15-20 students within each full time immersive course. In terms of in-house support offered by Xccelerate, our instructors are constantly available through dedicated channels that we have so that students can be walked through the course on a step by step level.

What do I need to bring to the class? Are there any textbooks needed in the course?

You will be required to bring your own laptop and your aspiration to succeed. There are no textbooks needed as we will provide the resources in our online system. If you have any concern whether or not your laptop will be appropriate for the course content, we are happy to go over the advised technical standards with you.

What if I have to miss some classes?

Class recordings and online streaming services are available pending the approval of the instructor. While these options are suitable for catching up if you absolutely must miss a class, we do not recommend replacing the original intended experience with these emergency options.

Video aside, most students opt to receive any class outlines from the instructor and meet with them briefly for any questions or concerns regarding course content.

Are there any exams on the course?

Our fluid outcomes-based education system means that you will not come across exams in our course. Most of our courses are project-based, with continuous reviews to make sure your dedication is rewarding.

How can I get a pass in the course?

Your final project along with the participation and effort you put into classes and presentations are all taken into consideration when issuing you with your final certification. As an institution, we take pride in the value of an Xccelerate certificate and therefore reserve the right to withhold under extreme circumstances where a student has shown little effort to succeed.

What certificate will I get after the course?

You will receive a digital certificate of graduation issued by us if you have attained 80% attendance rate and dedicated to excel in every project you did in the course. Your success is our success.

The certificate can be printed or even featured on your LinkedIn page to showcase your proficiency in the skills you've learned.

Are there any installments options?

Yes, we do offer installment options. Please contact our Admissions Manager at 68838583 for more details.

Do I need to pay for the software used in the class?

In most cases, the software used within the duration of a course is included in tuition. If there are exceptions to this, you will be notified of your options prior to the course start date.

What career support is offered by Xccelerate during immersive bootcamps?

Our specialized team, Xccelerate Talent Solutions, will follow through your 4-month learning journey to give the strongest career support possible. We host CV-building workshops, Portfolio-building, Networking events, and Mock interviews, to give the students the best chance of getting their dream job!

We will also put you in touch with our networks and allow you to present your ideas to them. At the end of the program, students would be forming groups to participate in a capstone project, which is like a final year project at your university. You would be presenting it on our talent night in front of our hiring partners.

Do part-time courses offer career support as well?

At present, only our full-time immersive bootcamps are able to offer dedicated career support, however the exclusive digital Xccelerate community is a great tool to connect with them and have quick chats as well as seek potential opportunities they may have within their network.

Is a job guaranteed upon completion of the full-time immersive programs?

At the present we do not guarantee a job upon completion of the program as there are many variables involved. As one might imagine, students who put full focus and effort into the immersive program DO have a very high likelihood of acquiring a job post (or often even before) graduation. Historically speaking, the students who tend to struggle on their job search were those who took the bootcamp program very casually. This is something we aggressively address from day one, especially if we notice a struggling or a lack of motivation in a student early on.

What we can say with great confidence is that we have an extensive network of hiring partners that we keep in touch with and invite to hiring events. After the course, you are expected to be employment-ready, CV-ready, and portfolio-ready. It means that you would acquire a certain level of skills that allow you to deal with the real industrial problems, we will provide support on your CV creation as well as interview skills and you will have created your own portfolio to prove your work to your future employers. Therefore, we would say, although we do not guarantee placement, we have a very high success rate in job placement amongst students who take full advantage of the program.
