Life as part of the Makers Academy Community
Being a student at Makers Academy is a very emotional journey. Eating, sleeping and breathing code becomes a huge part of your life, but looking after your wellbeing is also critical to becoming a great developer. On site we have Dana, our Chief Joy Officer - a certified yoga instructor who runs daily yoga and meditation classes and is here to look after your well being but don't worry if you're a remote student, Dana can also provide remote check ins too and send resources on how to develop your own meditation practise.
It’s also important to unwind and bond socially with your cohort. We're surrounded by some of London's quirkiest cafes, yummiest street food and busiest pubs. We host regular events such as Petcha Kutcha lightning talks, games nights, karaoke nights, as well as organising group activities like climbing, go-karting and going to the theatre. Remote students are encouraged to start engaging wih their local tech community and if another Remote student is near you, we encourage you to meet up and bond!
