Frequently asked questions
After I apply, how long will it be until I receive a link to complete the video profile?
We will endeavour to send you a link within 2 working days.
Do I need to gather all my documentation prior to starting the video profile recording?
Yes, unfortunately once you’ve completed the video profile, you can’t get back into the platform to upload your documents. It’s best that you have the paperwork in order first. If not, then don't worry - you can send your supporting documents to one of our team here.
Do I need to apply with a team or can I apply as an individual?
You can apply for this event as an individual. The afternoon prior to the event you will be able to pick your team and decide on the real world problem you would like to work on solving.
Will we present our hack solution to the companies attending?
The companies who have provided the hacks will be attending the event on the Friday. You will have the opportunity to present your team’s solution in person. There will be no contact with the company outside the event.
I’m still at university, so I don’t have an official transcript - what do I do?
That’s totally fine. If you can’t provide us an official transcript, we will accept an unofficial transcript, or even a screenshot of your grades to date in your student portal.
I’m out of university now, and have been for a few months, can I still apply?
Yes of course!
What references can I use?
We’re looking for a character reference, it doesn’t have to be a work related referee. You can ask your lecturer, tutor, sports coach, or anyone you’ve done volunteer work for.
When will we find out our hacks?
There will be an information session held the afternoon before the Hackathon (11 September 4.30pm) where you will find out the real world problems and be able to decide on what one you would like to develop a solution for.
We can’t guarantee that everyone will get their top choice.
