WorldQuant University offers a tuition-free, part-time, online, 16-week applied data science bootcamp. Students will gain first-hand experience in Python, and related data science tools including Pandas, Jupyter Notebooks, NumPy, Machine Learning, along with SQL and Object-Relational Mapping. The curriculum is built by The Data Incubator. The mission of WorldQuant University is to make advanced, quality education accessible to capable students everywhere by leveraging technology at scale. Classes are only online, and students are encouraged to connect and collaborate on group projects while also engaging in peer reviews. The bootcamp is broken up into two modules, and each must be completed within their eight-week durations. Students, can review the video lectures and complete assignments at their own pace within those eight weeks, with twice weekly support from mentors. The applied data science bootcamp is entirely tuition-free and students will do not need to purchase any books or course materials. WorldQuant University is sponsored by the WorldQuant Foundation, a charitable organization.

All applicants must have a four-year degree, and provide transcripts for their qualifications. After a candidate's documentation is confirmed, there is a quantitative proficiency test covering algebraic concepts and programming fundamentals. For applicants whose native language is not English, they'll be asked to provide proof of English proficiency (TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE exam scores).

Upon graduation, students receive a certificate of completion, which they can share on their professional profiles. Students will graduate with a portfolio of projects using real-world datasets.
