About Makers:

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 of learning code, equipping you with practical skills for work and how to be of value to an organisation. Makers combines tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives. At Makers it’s not all about tech, you are taught emotional intelligence as part of your training to help you build resilience and confidence in the workplace.

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:

Application Process

Stage 1

Fill in the initial application form on the Makers website.

Stage 2

Once you fill in the Makers form, you will be invited to complete an online screening process of coding exercises by Makers. Places are being given out on a first come first serve basis per cohort as part of their Makers Represent Scholarship Programme 



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 feel comfortable 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. 

For those students based in London, there might a possibility for a hybrid version, with sessions in-person depending on course dates. 

Once you apply, you will receive details from Makers which includes completing the codecademy Ruby course and hitting 100 honor points on codewars. Makers recommend you to spend at least 2h a day of work doing the following challenges as it does take some time to go through it and you do have a deadline of 15 days. 

 All students are sent a macbook to use for the duration of the course

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.

"I did the Makers coding bootcamp back in 2015. I studied computer science at university and after graduating went into help desk support. I wanted to start a career as a developer but my degree wasn't relevant to what was needed in the technology world. So after investing £8000 in the Makers' course which was financially tight for me. The risk paid off and after 12 weeks and a few months of job hunting where makers helped find us jobs and prepare us for interviews, I secured a junior developer position in the Civil Service. Since then I've now been promoted to a developer. The Bootcamp helped start my career as a developer and great there are now scholarships for Muslims because these courses are expensive but worthwhile.

"I was always interested in tech but thought the opportunity to work in tech was gone for me since I had gotten degrees in finance and economics. The value proposition was very attractive because it promised a relatively fast path to job readiness without having to do a multiple year degree. As the course turnaround was 3 months, there was no danger of course material becoming outdated by time it ended (as is the danger with 3-4 year degrees). They also promised to help with finding graduates their first developer job. In all their promises, I found that they more than delivered. I was new to London and did not have any professional network of my own. To build a network like the one Maker’s already had would’ve taken months, if not years, of work on top of learning to code. Overall, my journey through Maker’s was life changing and the initial cost of time and money has paid itself over several times."
