You can apply any time to High Bridge, and we will consider your application for the next batch. Here’s what you can expect from your application: Apply in only 1 min via our website After reviewing your application and checking if you meet the requirements, we will invite you to the Online Assessment, where you will complete a short test and record a video If you pass the Online Assessment, you will be invited for an interview If you are approved to participate, you will receive the High Bridge Offer. When is the application deadline? Applications close 5-6 weeks before the start of each bootcamp. You can check our brochure for the list of our upcoming scheduled bootcamps Since we have limited spots every cycle, the earlier you apply, the better. How much are the tuition fees? Upon receiving your offer, you will know if you have a seat for: Cash Tuition Payment Income Share Agreement (ISA) Under the ISA (Income Share Agreement), fees are 100% success-based. You only pay for the bootcamp if you get an offer from a consulting firm. The ISA tuition depends on the country you get the job in and the tier of the company. Check out the Tuition Calculator on our website to easily calculate your tuition fees. In the event of a student not getting placed, how does the ISA play out? The ISA payments are not triggered, and no payment is due to High Bridge whatsoever. I will start a job that I've already secured. Does it trigger the ISA? No. If you have received a job offer after signing, but before the bootcamp, the ISA will not be triggered. If your final interview takes place before the bootcamp, it will also not be triggered. In this case, you can drop out and pay any dropout fees, or stay and leave the ISA open for future jobs that will trigger it. Do internships trigger the ISA? No, internships and part-time jobs of 20 hours or less per week do not trigger the ISA. But when they are converted to full-time positions, yes. If a person transforms an internship they already had before the bootcamp into a full time job, no payment is due. Bear in mind that existing internships do not qualify for the rule of “Existing Tier”, meaning that if you have a Tier 2 internship, your ISA will be triggered if you go to another Tier 2 company as a full-time employee. What is included in the program fees? Our fees include live online workshops, exercises & drills, individual coaching that you need to unlock, resume & LinkedIn guidance, and all the study materials needed. Is there an application fee? We don’t charge application fees. However, if you receive an ISA Offer, you’ll be required to pay a reimbursable Seat Reservation Fee The Seat Reservation Fee is a symbolic fee ranging from 50 to 100 USD, depending on your country of residence Do you offer scholarships? Yes, we do. Scholarships are awarded only to candidates with the highest High Bridge application scores and profiles that best match our program.
