What is the commitment from candidates?

We ask that, if selected, you can commit to the full program – a 4-week virtual boot camp, and 6-month internship – for you to derive the full benefits, and for us to achieve the objectives of this initiative.

Each participant is expected to have the following infrastructure to ensure a seamless experience:

  • Laptop or desktop (with power backup, in case of power failures)..
  • High-speed internet connectivity (minimum 2MBPS speed).
  • Quiet working place (which can be used for ~8 hours every day).

The above infrastructure is critically important to optimise learning and ensure value add from the initiative.

Please ONLY apply if you can commit to the entirety of the program – starting with the boot camp from June 2023 to the end of the internships (The internship end date would vary between the end of December 2023 to the end of February 2024).
