The Mobile Academy registration is open!

Following the success of our first programme, Mobile Monday London and UCL Advances are delighted to announce the next 36 hour Mobile Academy master class from 23rd April to 27th June 2013.

Delivered by industry professionals, The Mobile Academy offers a 10 week evening programme for those that want to “make it in mobile”.  There are 3 streams - design, technology and business - and the programme offers practical workshops, clinics and talks given by experienced real-world practitioners – those have “been there and done it”, many from our Mobile Monday London community.  Just like our community, the attendees are from right across the board – start-ups to corporates;  marketers to developers and  all age groups;  it’s this diversity that creates a great learning environment – so our alumni tell us!

One of the principles of our programme is co-curation - meaning that tutors and participants get involved in the production of the course. To illustrate, here is a video made by one of our tutors, Ian Moncrieff MacMillan.

You can see testimonials from the previous programme, a sample programmewho's who and generally find out more at themobileacademy.org.uk.

Places on The Mobile Academy April 2013 programme are now available at £995 + booking fee. You can book your place at moblacad-apr-2013.eventbrite.com!

Discounted tickets will be available later in March at £495 + booking fee, for start-ups, those in education and charities  (there's already a long waiting list for those).

To get us started, our friends at the ICT KTN are once again offering bursary places for 3 lucky people!  Funded through the Technology Strategy Board, the ICT KTN seeks to bring a competitive advantage to the UK by facilitating the development and take up of information and communications technologies and their adoption as key enablers in other industries.

Applying for an ICT KTN funded place is simple: Make your case in 100 words, email it to info@ictktn.org.uk by 8th March (your details will also be added to The Mobile Academy mailing list) and the winners will be announced by 13th March.

This offer is open to all ICKTN members. Membership is free, and if you are not already a member, you can join by visiting www.ictktn.org.uk.
