Bootcamp Rankings Lists by Type
Bootcamp by Location
SwitchUp's rankings are based on over 15,000 reviews from verified students and alumni, across over 500 schools in operation. Both the total review score and review count were weighted, and an internal algorithm was used to determine the ranking order. Because student and alumni feedback are indicative of bootcamp quality, review score was assigned a higher weight than review count.
To be considered for the 2020 rankings, all bootcamps must help students land jobs in tech through excellent instructor support, curriculum, and career resources. Both part-time and immersive bootcamps are included on this list.
