Microverse Application Process and Interviews

Microverse’s admissions process starts every five weeks, and you can submit your application regardless of where you live. There are three steps to consider when applying for a Microverse course.

The first step is to complete the prep course. This could be considered optional, but it will help introduce you to programming principles. This introductory program will also prepare you for the coding challenges in the application process. These technical tests last from two to four hours and consist of algorithm tests to evaluate your programming skills.

Lastly, you will complete a pair programming project built with other applicants or coding partners. This collaborative project will give the school an idea of your communication and collaboration skills.

How do you prepare for the Microverse interview process? According to a majority of user reviews, the admissions process at Microverse is a experience. Further, reviewers reported that the Microverse interview process didn't take long to complete before receiving a decision.

Pros
They review the soft skills in the interview process, which is a huge pro! They also accept people from all over the globe without a deposit.
Cons
Doesn't filter the best students.

My experience at Microverse As a law student with no experience in coding, I would give Microverse 7/10 because it gives sufficient materials but limited time. Though I make personal training I have to meet up with weekly code reviews which always leads me to reach out to coding partners for assistance. Also, the international interaction is top-notch and distinct as it is rear. We are been thought in an industry-standard way.
Pros
Introduction to the concept of the technologies Sharing the resources to make you understand
Cons
Limited time to learn Bulky materials that bore.

At the end of 2021, in November, I started my journey in the world of programming with the Microverse. I didn't have any programming experience. I heard about HTML and thought it was so easy, and everyone could write anything in it. How wrong I was. Now, six months later, I am confident in HTML, CSS, javascript, react, redux, and much more. I learned how to work in pairs, learned how to cope with stressful situations, and made many friends from all over the world.
Pros
pair-programming, communications,
Cons
strict requirements for completing assignments

Pros
Quick Response from Microverse Understand the Problems and Corporate on it. Awesome curriculum Topics are well Documented. Doing Projects on pair programming is implemented very nicely
Cons

At the begging it's a little confusing with too many elements and pages they give us, but with only following the lessons you can get use to the platform. Thanks that the curriculum looks to improve your learning methods, social and professional skills, after 3 months I feel capable to learn different programming languages and tools by my own and feel confidant in what I learned at the program.
Pros
- Good community helping all the time - Professional and easy to follow curriculum - Great base coding structure
Cons
- Completely self learning - Some lessons are confusing

Microverse Questions

Microverse FAQs

What Is Microverse Cost and Tuition?

Microverse’s bootcamp cost is $15,000. However, you do not pay any Microverse tuition upfront. Instead, Microverse has a built-in ISA for its students. Furthermore, at $15,000, Microverse’s price is reasonable when compared to other bootcamps, especially considering the no upfront cost.

Microverse deferred tuition is paid back when a graduate gets a software development job that pays at least $1,000 a month. The $15,000 fee is paid back at 15 percent of your total income. If you don’t get a software developer job or you earn under $1,000 a month then you don’t have to pay anything.

Unless you don’t find employment, Microverse is not free. However, the bootcamp does offer a free prep course. This means prospective students can learn the basics of programming and learn how the teaching at Microverse works before making any financial commitment.

What Is Microverse Acceptance Rate?

Unfortunately, the Microverse acceptance rate has not been publicly shared. However, Microverse does accept everyone and the bootcamp encourages people from all over the world to apply. Classes are offered across two different zones, UST+1 and UST-6, so no matter where you are in the world you will be able to study at a suitable time.

How Can I Pay for Microverse?

Microverse payment options are limited as there is only one way to pay for Microverse tuition. Microverse deferred tuition is offered to every student which means no upfront fees are required and you don’t need to pay anything until you get a job as a software engineer and earn over $1,000 a month.

This income share agreement program is available for everyone regardless of their nationality or country of residency, which no other school has done to date. Microverse also offers a referral bonus of $150 if your eligible referral completes five weeks of the full-time program.

How Do I Apply to Microverse?

The Microverse application process is slightly different from other bootcamps. The Microverse admissions process has several steps. While time-consuming, they are straightforward. Steps to apply for Microverse are:

  1. The first step will only take you about five minutes. You will need to answer a couple of general questions about your background and skills. The online application also includes some resources about the school so you can get to know it better.
  2. The second step is an algorithmic coding challenge, which takes around two to three hours. To pass the test, you need basic JavaScript skills. The school recommends that candidates take the free prep course program to build a background to prepare for the qualifying exam. Applicants can retake this step if they fail it.
  3. When you pass the coding challenge, you move on to the trials. Here, you will work with three other candidates from any region of the world on a short programming project. Students rate each according to a predetermined set of criteria. The Microverse admissions team uses these ratings to determine who moves on to the next stage.
  4. The next step is an online interview. The Microverse interview lasts about 20 minutes and you get to meet the Microverse team. In this step, you can ask some questions and let the representatives know why you chose the school. You can schedule the interview at a time that’s convenient for you.
  5. Finally, you will meet Microverse’s founder Ariel Camus. If you get to this point, you might have been accepted by the school. Feel free to ask questions and clarify any doubts you may have.

Microverse is hard to get into because the application process has numerous steps that you must pass. The school offers everyone an ISA, so it will only accept applicants who tick all of the boxes. If you do the prep course and show a genuine passion for web development, you will have a good chance of getting into Microverse.

How Do I Get Accepted into Microverse?

If you want to get accepted into Microverse, you need basic programming skills to pass the coding challenge. The school doesn’t want you to be an expert in software engineering, but they want to know that you are fully committed to learning programming fundamentals.

Microverse’s prospective candidates are passionate about computer science, curious, and have logical thinking skills. In addition, you must have communication skills because you’ll be working with your peers throughout the entire program.

What Is the Microverse Admission Process?

The steps to joining Microverse are submitting the application form, completing and passing the coding challenge, going through the trials, and having a phone interview with one of the school’s representatives. This process is not entirely conventional, but it’s perfect for determining if the program is suitable for your expectations.

What Microverse Interview Questions Should I Expect?

Microverse’s interview process is relatively short, lasting around 20 to 30 minutes. At this time, the school’s representative will ask you about your career background and experience with programming. They will also want to know your availability to commit to a full-time program and whether you’d feel comfortable participating in the income share agreement.

The Microverse interview is an important process. The previous steps will ensure you have the required basic coding and logical skills to enroll at Microverse. The interview will make sure you are committed to the program and that its methods are right for you, such as collaborative learning and mastery learning.

Before having the interview, you should ensure that your camera, microphone, and internet connection are all working smoothly so that you don’t have any issues during the call. Furthermore, you can research and study typical bootcamp questions for interview preparation.

Is Microverse Hard to Get Into?

Although the school hasn’t shared its acceptance rate, we can tell by student reviews that it might be a little challenging to get into Microverse. This is especially true if you have zero programming experience. That’s why the school recommends taking the preparation course in advance.
