Online bootcamps terms & conditions

By using any and all services disseminated by CoGrammar, you are bound to and agree to the following terms and conditions:

However, as part of your bootcamp, you will have access to our ongoing career guidance and support services which include but are not limited to technical CV curation, portfolio amplifying, online career coaching from expert tech recruiters, mock interviews with our technical team, and an exclusive referral to our network of hiring partners.
  • Our Marketing team may from time to time use messages, quotes, or testimonials by currently enrolled or previously enrolled students in promoting CoGrammar bootcamps, and disseminate them through its marketing channels at any point.
  • Dropping out of the bootcamp - Our curriculum builds cumulatively with each subsequent module tying into the previous. Throughout the bootcamp we’re able to see who is lagging behind or might need more mentorship to ensure they keep up with the rest of the cohort. However, should you decide to not pursue your bootcamp or terminate your enrolment at any point for whatever reason, you will forfeit all your remaining mentor support and will not be eligible for any refund except as provided for under the current Refund Policy.
  • Pausing the bootcamp - Students on the full-time track are not allowed to pause or put their studies on hold once the cohort has started. Breaks may be allowed only under certain exceptional circumstances and these would be granted at the sole discretion of the Company. However, part-time students may take a break for up to a maximum of one (1) month on their bootcamp.
  • Refunds - Refunds are governed by our Refund Policy detailed in clause 2.3 below. All amounts qualifying for a refund are subject to a “Cancellation Fee” defined in clause 2.3 below.
  • Referrals - You may refer a friend, partner or family member and both of you will receive a 10% discount on the bootcamp price. This discount is only eligible to existing and or newly joining students, and on Upfront Payments for either the full-time or part-time track. To refer someone, please send an email to admissions@cogrammar.com with full details of your referral, once their registration has been confirmed and identity verified, you will receive a written approval of your discount with further instructions on how both of you will proceed with the payment.
  • Access to content - All students will gain access to a dedicated online dashboard and a personal student content folder. All full-time students and part-time students who have paid upfront will have access to an entire module of their content at a time. Part-time students who are on a monthly subscription plan will have their content staggered according to weekly schedules and monthly milestones.
  • Non-Payment - Monthly or installment payments are due on or before the 5th of each month to ensure access to the campus is not restricted. Failure to make payments or to provide sufficient notice of delayed payments could result in restricted content or delay in your graduation. Please contact your mentor or support advisor should you have any questions around non-payment once you have registered.
  • We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Payments, cancellations and refunds

Paid Subscriptions to enrol on a Bootcamp can be purchased either by: (1) paying a monthly subscription fee; or (2) making a prepayment that gives you access to CoGrammar support for a specific time period ("Pre-Paid Period"). If you have paid for a Pre-Paid Period, your enrolment will automatically terminate at the end of the Pre-Paid Period.

Unless your Paid Subscription has been purchased as a Pre-Paid Period, your payment will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, unless you cancel your Paid Subscription through your subscription page before the end of the current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period, and you will be downgraded to the Free Service.

Refund requests meeting all requirements will be processed by the CoGrammar Student Success team within forty-five (45) working days in line with the Refund Policy detailed in clause 2.3 below.

CoGrammar may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions or Pre-Paid Period (for periods not yet paid for) from time to time. Price changes for Paid Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Should CoGrammar adjust pricing, we endeavour to provide at least 7 days' notice to existing customers on recurring subscription prior to changes taking effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the CoGrammar support prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.

Pause policy terms & conditions

Our Bootcamps run on a fixed schedule of 3 months full time and 6 months part time online. We aim to maintain a consistent cohort progress and a stable student community at all times, therefore as a standard policy we do not allow students to take a break or pause at any point throughout their bootcamp(s).

However, we do understand that emergencies happen and that sometimes a student can be affected by special circumstances beyond control. A pause is therefore allowed under extenuating circumstances and the conditions listed in this document. CoGrammar reserves the right of sole discretion in all decisions relating to a pause, or any other sort of extension. Please refer to the Ts & Cs applicable below:

Acceptable Reasons for Course Pausing:

  • Pre-planned travelling
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Family Emergencies
  • Work schedule

    1. You may consider a pause as approved only upon receipt of written approval from a member of the CoGrammar Support team.
    2. Any pause taken without prior written approval from a member of the CoGrammar support team will be considered invalid and your mentor support for the duration of their pause will lapse.
  2. You may not request to pause your course within one week (7 days) after the start date. In the case where this is unavoidable, your start date will automatically be pushed back and will be advised to start your bootcamp afresh with the next cohort. This is applicable to online students.
  3. If you are on a monthly payment plan and your request to pause is received after 3 weeks (21 days) of your most recent monthly re-subscription, you will have the rest of that month’s support forfeited and will be liable to pay the full monthly subscription renewal fee before you are allowed to resume. This is applicable to both online students.
  4. If you have paid for the full bootcamp upfront and granted a pause during your bootcamp, your paused time will be added at the back of your original support end date.
    1. Online students are allowed up to one month (30 days) maximum pause, failing which, the student may be liable to pay re-enrollment fee upon return.
    2. You may not request to pause your course more than twice within the same bootcamp.

Grading is determined on a 16 point basis for each task submitted on a bootcamp. 16 points are distributed across the 4 areas of skill, one being ‘Completeness’. Students must achieve the minimum grades within the allocated resubmissions below for tasks (smaller assignments) and capstone projects (larger assignments) at the minimum grades set out below for their programme.
