Learn Data Science and machine learning by studying in the evenings and on Saturdays!
24 weeks of classes
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 18:30 to 21:30 (CET)
Mastering the tools used in big data and AI can significantly boost your career – but you don’t have to quit your job to learn.
Holding classes only on evenings and on Saturdays, the Part-Time Data Science bootcamp will teach you the theory and especially the practice of gathering, analysing and manipulating data.
You’ll also master machine learning, which is the foundation of modern AI systems.
The curriculum is suited for those who wish to start a brand new career in tech, as well as for those who wish to upskill without changing their field. The schedule is designed expressly for students who already have a busy routine.
Many of the concepts you will learn will be new and unfamiliar to you. The material we’ll present you with will push you outside of your comfort zone. This is natural. Embrace it.
Before you can interpret data, you must gather it, process it, compare it. This is called quantitative work, and while it does not demand any special aptitude or preparation, it does require the willingness and the patience to work with numbers.
Our bootcamp is open to international students, and it is in English. You don’t have to be a native speaker, but you should know the language well enough to be able to follow a class, and communicate with your fellow students, without slowing everyone else down.
Our virtual platform, where you will meet your instructors and study alongside your peers, is online. To join us, you will need a computer or a laptop connected to the Internet, along with speakers/headphones and a microphone.
Data Science requires patience and hard work, yes. But it’s not something only the most brilliant minds of this world can do, and it’s fine if you haven’t done any mathematics since school.
You don’t need any qualifications related to computer science or programming. Our bootcamp assumes no prior knowledge and covers the basics of the field in the first few weeks.
You are here to learn together with others, not to outdo them. A collaborative, friendly attitude is essential, and your only benchmark for progress should be yourself.
Your classes will last three hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, complemented with a full day of teaching on Saturday. You will learn about the theory and the mathematical foundations of Data Science, and from there progress to its practical and commercial applications. The bootcamp equips you with the precise skills necessary to interpret and exploit the data generated by business interactions online (or, to get your computer to do it for you!). A thorough induction in machine learning, a field of artificial intelligence, is also provided.
Learn how to read, clean, explore and visualise data from real businesses to deliver actionable recommendations and craft business proposals.
Learn the real use-cases of traditional hypotesis testing (A/B testing to optimise web UI/UX). You will use the modern tools for experimenting, but also understand the underlying statistical concepts.
Learn how to collect unique data from the internet using APIs, and use the power of cloud computing to build data pipelines from scratch.
Time to start learning about AI. Train and tune ML models to make predictions on housing prices and cluster songs to automate the creation of playlists.
Build one of the most popular types of AI software: a recommender system. Then, get ready for data interviews with one last push of SQL advanced exercises.
Choose a topic that suits your career objectives to master and broaden the skills that you will need in your job applications. Create a top-notch unique data portfolio with the guidance of our instructors.
Prior to the beginning of the bootcamp, we will give you access to our Primer. This is an introduction to the basic concepts you will be dealing with in your classes, and it is designed to be interactive and inclusive of exercises. The purpose of the Primer is to make sure that every student can begin the bootcamp with some core notions already in place, so that everyone can hit the ground running.
During the course, the structure of the weeks will vary to adapt to the learning content of the moment, but in general this is what a typical week looks like. Please note that the course is also available in a full-time format if the following schedule is not suitable for you.
Our instructors are hands-on professionals from the world of Data Science, with a proven track record in the industry and a passion for helping others learn. Each bootcamp has its own designated instructor, who will act as your personal tutor and check on your progress from the first to the last of your 26 weeks with us. Our bootcamp is a challenge – but it’s a challenge you won’t have to face alone.
Students who complete our course will be awarded a WBS CODING SCHOOL Graduation Certificate. The document testifies to future or potential employers the acquisition of precise skills in accordance with the selected course. Expect this to become a staple of your tech-related CV or professional profile.
So graduation is over and it’s time to work – what to expect?
Our Part-time Data Science bootcamps last 26 weeks, with 24 weeks of instructor led training and two one-week breaks. Please find the starting dates for the next bootcamps below. You may also consider the starting dates for the full-time version of this course, in case you find them more suitable.

Our application process is designed to guide you, gently but clearly, into the course you want to take. Just follow these three steps:
(10 min ~ 30 min)
Solve our data challenge. The purpose of this step is to allow us to evaluate your level of experience, and of course to ensure we are enrolling motivated students. If you find yourself struggling, just send us a line. We’re here to help, particularly if you’re inexperienced!
Time to get to know each other! Schedule a 30 minute interview with one of our Admission Managers and introduce yourself. We’ll want to know a little bit more about you, particularly what makes you get up in the morning and why you want to learn to code. You can also ask any questions of your own, or clarify anything you’re still uncertain about.
Get in touch with us, and we will be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
