What’s the daily schedule and learning atmosphere like?
The courses run from Monday to Thursday, 9.00 – 17.30 and Friday, 9.00 – 15.00, and are structured like a normal working day. Between 9.00 – 10.00, you’ll have a group meeting with your mentor (the project manager), who will discuss some common tricky points and set the weekly targets to be met by all.
Students are expected to deliver their work independently. That said, the small cohorts provide a dynamic and collaborative atmosphere. Students are encouraged to solve problems together and to help each other out.
There are also group sessions where mentors will discuss sticking points and students are also encouraged to book 1:1 review time with the mentors in the calendar.
Most students will finish their day around 17.30, though as many of our academies are located in coworking spaces, students benefit from extended opening hours and in some cases 24hr access. We also often have workshops running, which the students are encouraged to attend.
