Phase 4: DirectEd Bootcamp Ethiopia 2023/24

November 20th - May 6th
The Ethiopian bootcamp will contain the same content but at half pace owing to the fact that most students will be pursuing this bootcamp parallel to their university studies.
There will be a milestone assessment once a month, each covering one module. Students who fail are given one retake opportunity. If they fail again, then they will no longer be able to proceed in the bootcamp and will receive a certificate corresponding to the achievements attained. More details can be found in our GitHub repository.
