Makers Academy

Like Oxbridge meets the Royal Marines, but for people who want to learn to code, Makers Academy is a highly-selective, 12 week, full-time program that teaches web development. Our applicants are usually entrepreneurs who want to be their own tech-cofounder, people looking to change careers, freelancers looking to diversify their skill-set or people that are simply passionate about learning to code. We have a new cohort starting every 6 weeks.
