If you pass our admission screening test for Bootcamp and are ready to be enrolled, we will reach out to IMDA to obtain and confirm your eligibility for TIPP. You don't have to separately reach out to IMDA for this purpose.
If you have more specific questions related to this, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How much of the Bootcamp course fees will be subsidised?
For those who are below 40 years old, up to 70% of the course will be subsidized.
For those who are 40 years old and above, up to 90% of the course will be subsidized.
Eligibility for subsidises is strictly subject to IMDA's discretion.
If the full conditions of the TIPP subsidy programme is not met or adhered to by the applicant, Rocket reserves the right to charge the applicant for any remaining course fees.
Do the subsidies apply to both the full-time and part-time bootcamp course?
Yes! However, we have limited seats for TIPP for 2023. So do apply early if you're sure this is something you'd like to pursue. Once subsidised seats are filled, you'd have to wait for the next subsidised intake or pay the full course fees of SGD$7,999.
However, in the event that TIPP spots are not filled yet, we will open up the remaining spots on a first-come-first-served basis to the next cohorts.
If you'd like to be the first to know about TIPP spots for future cohorts, do sign up for our waitlist here: https://forms.gle/geFrFweXtRrWcBoH9
What happens if I drop out of the Bootcamp course BEFORE I graduate?
Students under TIPP scheme who choose to leave, or defer to a later course cohort, will be required to pay the remaining balance of the course in full.
*Note: Students attending the course under the TIPP scheme are required by Rocket Academy to attend at least 90% of all mandatory class days throughout the course and submit all projects and assignments to graduate.
What happens if i decide NOT to become a software engineer or build a tech company upon graduation?
Graduates benefitting from TIPP subsidies will be placed into job-placement services by Rocket Academy immediately after graduation.
Rocket Academy requires students who successfully graduate from Bootcamp but for whatever reason fail to comply with the job hunting process (i.e. decide not to pursue a job as a software engineer or build their own tech start-up within 6 months of graduation) to pay for 15% of the total course fee as the full conditions of the student contract would not have been met.
Do I need to complete Rocket’s Fundamentals prior to applying for Rocket’s TIPP Bootcamp?
W encourage interested applicants to complete Rocket’s Fundamentals (previously known as Coding Basics) first, as it will provide you the training and background needed to prepare you for the rigour in Bootcamp.
However, for those who have background in coding, it is not essential that you graduate from our Fundamentals program if you are able to pass our admissions coding quiz which will be administered upon application.
Are the subsidies only available for the next full-time Bootcamp in March 2023?
No. However, a limited number of TIPP slots are given to us by IMDA and as such, if all slots are filled up for the Bootcamp cohort, the TIPP subsidies will not be applicable for the following batches until the next round of TIPP subsidies are approved.
In the event that the slots are not filled up, there will be slots open for the next Bootcamp batch. To be on the waitlist for TIPP for cohorts after Jan 2023, please submit your interest here: https://forms.gle/geFrFweXtRrWcBoH9
"Rocket's community was one of the main reasons for me to take the leap of faith to make a career switch with them instead of other bootcamp providers. The camaraderie and energy levels of my coursemates and students of the other batches really value-added to my learning and always gave me motivation to achieve more with each project, which ultimately helped me land my current job."
