Become a Software Developer
in 16 weeks with Makers!
Deadline: 31st October 11pm
(We may close early if we reach our applications capacity)
Are you interested in becoming a developer? Looking for the fast and flexible route into software engineering? We’re excited to be giving away two fully-funded scholarships to Makers worth £8000 each.
Learn to code with Makers at their full-time coding Bootcamp in London
Makers was Europe’s first coding bootcamp. Makers is creating a new generation of tech talent who are skilled and ready for the changing world of work. Makers believe in alternative ways to learn how to code, how to be ready for work and how to be of value to an organisation. Makers combines tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives.
As part of the Makers course you will have the freedom to build your final project in a new technology of your choice, you’ll leave the Makers course with a packed portfolio and plenty of points on Stack Overflow. Together with job support from Maker’s career coaches and connections to leading tech companies, they’ll help you find a job you love.
Earn £30k-£35k in your first role. With Maker’s accelerated learning trajectory, you could earn up to £45k a year later.

Who can apply for the scholarship?
To be eligible to apply for the scholarship:
Fill in the initial application form, we’re keen to learn more about you and see anything you’ve been working on. Do this as soon as possible, because if selected you will have more time for stage 2 of the application process.
If shortlisted after stage 1, we will send you a coding exercise which is part of Makers selection process
If you complete the stage 2 exercise on time, we will shortlist further and have a general interview or ask for a video to some questions. If selected, you will then be sent further preparation material to prepare you for the Makers technical test
Shortlisted candidates will then meet the Makers team and do a technical test
Candidates who pass the technical test will then be interviewed by Muslamic Makers and Aziz Foundation panel and two candidates will be awarded the scholarship
The hybrid course alternates between two weeks onsite at Makers campus in Shoreditch and two weeks learning from home. This is the perfect option if you prefer to break up your focus time with face to face interaction and want to get back to the buzz of the city. The Makers team has worked hard to create a Covid safe learning environment with sanitizer throughout the campus, socially distanced workshop spaces and weekly lateral flow testing.
The remote course is taught fully online so you can get the same Makers experience from the comfort of your own home. This is a great option if you live outside of London, have commitments at home or simply still feel safer in an online environment. Workshops are taught live, there’s no prerecorded content and you’ll work with a dedicated coaching team who work exclusively with remote students, so there’s no need to worry that onsite students will be prioritised.
To be eligible to apply for the scholarship you need to be able to commit to starting the course to one of these dates below.
Remote: Precourse 14th Feb. Full time starts 14th March. Graduation June 3rd.
Hybrid: Precourse 7th March. Full time starts 4th April. Graduation June 24th.
