This bootcamp (also referred to as our "Immersive Bootcamp") represents our most advanced and comprehensive learning experience. This Immersive bootcamp teaches both software engineering and full stack web development principles to students over a 6-month period that combines online learning with up to 12 formal, personal check-ins. By signing up for this Immersive bootcamp, you agree to abide by all the terms and conditions for our on-site bootcamps, general terms and conditions, and our student codes of conduct.
This bootcamp is available for International students. By signing up for this bootcamp, you acknowledge and agree to the following:
This policy sets out the criteria that come into play that might lead to students facing disenrollment from their bootcamp.
What does disenrollment mean?
Disenrollment is when a student is removed from their bootcamp due to not adhering to our terms and conditions policies and the academic requirements outlined in the guide to graduation that the student will agree to when starting their bootcamp. Disenrollment does not mean that you will get your money back, we have a refund policy in place that will align with this policy and will determine if there is any refund payable.
What do you need to adhere to in order to avoid possible disenrollment?
We require that students abide by our Attendance, Progression, Grading, Plagiarism and Terms and Conditions policies so that they can make full use of our resources and facilities, get the most out of our courses, and be fully prepared to enter a professional programming environment.
So what does attendance entail?
Attendance is the time that you spend on-site or on our online platform to ensure that you're progressing on your bootcamp.
For online programmes, attendance entails being active on our education support platforms and the handing in of tasks on the student dashboard. Our platform automatically tracks this by capturing login times and sign-ins to online mentor calls, tutorial and work sessions. On-site attendance is taken by our lecturers and on-site mentors.
We recommend that you spend at least 8 to 10 hours a day on campus or online as a full time student and 4 to 5 hours as a part-time student. We do, however, understand that some students work faster than others and might not require as much attendance as is recommended. If this is the case then you and your mentor need to discuss this so that a note can be made on your student profile. Obviously, if you are behind then the recommended attendance will be what you as a student must adhere to. If you are not attending, and this shows in your progression rate, you might risk disenrollment from the bootcamp.
If a student falls within the following criteria, they are at risk of disenrollment:
|Required hours of study||10:00-16:00 Monday to Friday required attendance at our campus||17:00-19:00 Tuesdays to Thursdays required attendance at our campus||Minimum 40 hours per week.||Minimum 10 hours per week.|
Our Education Team will motivate and support you all the way but attendance is up to you - we can’t force you to attend.
Mentors will be checking in with their students on a weekly basis each Friday and should there be poor or no attendance for a week, take this up with the student. A note will also be made on your student file to ensure there is a record of this failure to attend. If there is poor attendance for a second week then the mentor will hand over the matter to Student Success where the Student Progression Associate (SPA) will reach out to the student to discuss the matter. In the case where a student has a sponsor, the sponsor will also be notified.
Should there be renewed commitment from the student (and sponsor where applicable), the SPA will hand back the matter to the Education Team, where the mentor will assess the student’s progression and assist in getting them back on track. The mentor will keep in contact with the SPA (and the sponsor where applicable) to ensure that the student stays on track for the duration of the bootcamp.
The student’s responsibility
The student should ensure that they adhere to the recommended attendance as is set out for their specific option and mode of study. In cases where attendance is not possible, the student (or the student’s sponsor) needs to discuss this with their allocated Mentor. In a case where a student is unable to attend and needs to pause their bootcamp, the necessary pause process needs to be followed.
This said, students should ensure that they check in with their mentor at least once a week and should indicate if they will not be attending or active on our education support platforms. Should a student fall behind in progression on the bootcamp, their mentor will be reaching out to them to determine why this is happening and intervention might be put in place to ensure that the student does not fall too far behind. If there is no activity or attendance for more than 2 weeks, then the student will be handed over to Student Success for further action.
What is the progression rate?
The progression rate looks at where a student needs to be in their bootcamp in order to graduate within the given time, and then where they actually are. For example, if a student should be on task 10 at a specific point in their bootcamp but they are only on task 5 then their progression rate will be 50%. If they were on task 10 in this example, their progression should be 100%. If they are on task 12 and should only be on task 10 then their progression will be on 120%.
Our mentors check in with their students on a weekly basis to ensure that any students that are falling behind are assisted to get back on track. Should a student fall under 75% progression, the mentor will intervene to try and get the student back on track.
The student’s responsibility
Once a student falls under 75% progression, the student will then be given 2 weeks to catch up on their bootcamp and get it above 75%. If they are not able to do so, the student will be handed over to Student Success for discussions around the continuation of studies.
Should a student reach the end date of their bootcamp without completion, they will have to make arrangements to extend this end date or risk disenrollment when their support runs out. It is thus vital to stay ahead with progression and work with one’s mentor to ensure progression is where it needs to be to complete the bootcamp before or on time.
With Pause requests, 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 our Pause Policy.
It is worthwhile to note that even if a pause is requested, it might not be approved. It is up to the student to ensure that they plan accordingly should they not be able to pause their bootcamp. Also note, even if a pause request is approved, it does not mean that payment arrangements will also be placed on hold - these will go ahead as agreed upon at the start of the bootcamps.
As noted in onboarding, 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. Students must achieve a minimum of 75% for all tasks before they are able to move on to the next level of their bootcamp. These grades are assigned through a code review system. Students agree that this grading is the final authoritative record of their grading, and no other information may be used to substitute our grading records.
We will make sure that our students receive value adding and actionable feedback on their tasks within the agreed upon turnaround times.
The student’s responsibility
Our students need to make sure they are trying their best to achieve 75% or above for all tasks. If by the third time they are still not able to complete a task on the required standard or if they have made no attempt to correct the pointed out errors that were highlighted by the code reviewer or mentor, they shall be handed over to Student Success for discussion around continuation of their bootcamp.
It is vital that all students (and their sponsors) read through the plagiarism policy to make sure that they understand what constitutes plagiarism at HyperionDev.
As a proud academic institution, we take plagiarism very seriously.
If a reviewer suspects that there is plagiarism in a task that you submit, the following procedures will take place:
First offence: Your mentor/lecturer will discuss the incident with you to discern the reason behind the suspected plagiarism. Your mark received will be halved (e.g. if the work would have been 80%, you will receive 40%) and you will need to resubmit. The mentor/lecturer will bring the incident to the attention of the Education Operations Manager and the Head of Education and it will be kept on record.
Second offence: You will receive 0% for the task and a meeting will be arranged with you, your mentor/lecturer, the Education Operations Manager and/or the Head of Education and your sponsor (if applicable) to discuss further action. Unless significant changes are made, you will risk disenrollment. This incident is kept on record.
Third offence: You will receive 0% for the task and a hearing will be arranged with you, your mentor/lecturer, the Education Operations Manager (if applicable), the Head of Education (if applicable) and your sponsor (if applicable). An Impartial Party will be appointed as the Chairperson to oversee the hearing. At this point, it is at the Chairperson’s discretion whether to disenroll you or take other actions they deem appropriate. This incident is kept on record.
The student’s responsibility
It is vital that all students (and their sponsors) read through the plagiarism policy to make sure that they understand what constitutes plagiarism at HyperionDev. Once there is an understanding of this, the student must ensure that they actively refrain from transgressing in this regard.
Any student found not adhering to our terms and conditions will risk immediate disenrollment and possible permanent expulsion. Decisions will be based on collated data and the specific circumstances of each specific case. For more information on our Code of Conduct, refer to our Code of Conduct policy.
We have made our terms and conditions available on our website as well as other processes and areas of adherence during onboarding to the bootcamp. We reserve the right to make changes. to these documents but will ensure to communicate this with our students (and their sponsors).
The student’s responsibility
Our students (and Sponsors) need to make sure they take the time to read through our terms and conditions. We do not take responsibility for any documentation that was not clearly read as it is all freely available to our students (and their sponsors).
If any of our students are found to fall in one of the above criteria, an intervention will be held in an attempt to remediate the situation. If the behaviour continues after the intervention, the student may be disenrolled. This will be at the discretion of HyperionDev.
Where there are allegations of HyperionDev’s staff being at fault, proper investigation of the matter will take place in accordance with our internal investigations policies and an outcome from this will then determine the relevant action that will be taken. The outcome determined by the investigation will be final.
It is important to again note that we have a refund policy in place which will determine if a refund amount is applicable, and if it is, what that amount will be.
Our Bootcamps run on a fixed schedule for three to six (3-6) months full-time (with the latter only being for the Immersive bootcamp) and six to twelve (6-12) months part-time (with the latter only being for the Immersive), either online or onsite. We aim to maintain 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/leave/holiday at any point during their bootcamp enrollment period.
The Emergency Pause Policy is only intended for use in genuine personal emergencies. It remains the student's (or sponsor's) responsibility to ensure that they keep up to date with their work and plan to ensure they are able to continue their studies in the face of commonplace challenges (e.g. hardware or software problems, loss of Internet connectivity, etc). We recognise that sometimes in the course of regular life, students face various challenges and begin to fall behind or become overwhelmed; in these circumstances the correct procedure is for the student to reach out to our Student Success department, which will assist them in organising academic support to help them cope and catch up.
Emergency Pauses are considered under the following conditions:
All Emergency Pause requests will be considered on merit on a case-by-case basis. In some cases, provisional approval may be granted, contingent on the receipt of appropriate supporting documentation within a period specified to the student. Where provisional approval is granted but supporting documentation is not forthcoming within a period of 30 days, the Emergency Pause will be considered not to have been granted, but the administration fee will be not waived.
All Emergency Pause requests are to be submitted through this form for processing by the Student Success team. HyperionDev reserves the right of sole discretion in all decisions relating to an Emergency Pause, or any other sort of extension.
