Hyperion’s mentor support pairs you 1:1 with an experienced mentor who assists you in learning at every step of the way and reviews your work within 24 hours.
Our mentors are Computer Science specialists who are trained to be full-time mentors to beginner/intermediate learners. They don’t just tell you right from wrong; they provide personalized feedback on aspects such as improving code readability, following coding conventions, writing more efficient codes, or translating structured solutions into codes.
Mentor support means that any code you write gets reviewed by your mentor within 24 hours. You also get access to daily live chat and weekly video calls with your mentor to discuss any issues you’ve been facing. Our bootcamps and courses comprise of several coding tasks and on each task, you iterate on the solution with your mentor until both of you are satisfied - this is what ensures that our learners complete the course with the confidence required to take on full-fledged roles in tech and programming.
Towards the end of your course, your mentor also provides you career guidance and support. This includes helping you with interview preparation, reviewing your CV and portfolio, directly referring you to our hiring partners, helping you network within the tech community, and facilitating internships at select partner organisations.
Learning to code without mentor support can be tough. We at Hyperion have partnered with educational researchers from the University of Cambridge to find the most effective way to help our students learn how to write industry-quality code faster.
Our mentors are specialists in their domain who have been trained to be full-time mentors. They are experts with the ability to form a supportive connection with students to help them learn and graduate from their courses.
All our mentors hold university degrees in Computer Science, and have decades of collective academic and professional experience at institutions such as Google, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, and the University of Cape Town.
Our mentors are hand-picked from among hundreds of applicants through a rigorous selection process that tests not only their technical skills but also their teaching and communication abilities. Many of our mentors have prior mentoring experience. Once selected, mentors undergo continuous professional development to ensure they remain at the cutting-edge of technical knowledge while constantly evolving as educators.
While enrolled on a bootcamp at HyperionDev and provided time remains on your bootcamp, you can switch to another course or bootcamp. This will require guidance from your mentor to ensure the decision ties in with your expectations and career goals.
