    Hello Stanford,
    This past July I completed a 4 week Summer Program at Parsons. Is the Design Thinking Bootcamp similar in setup and available to Internationals who are not enrolled in Stanford?

    Hi Vlad,
    Thanks for the question. I’m not personally familiar with the Parsons program so its hard for me to compare it. This is a quarter-long course that meets 3 days a week. It is only available to Stanford graduate students.
