What happens if I fall sick during the Program?

Illness! Happens to the best of us. Read this article to find out more.

Know that we completely understand, as we’re all humans and it happens to the best of us. It’s always better to take a short break to recharge and recover. Come back stronger.

However, to answer this question it depends on how long it takes for you to recover and get back to coding.

If you fall sick without a coding partner, it’s fine.

If you have a coding partner and you fall sick, do inform them immediately. We will help create a plan for your coding partner that would allow them to keep developing their skills while they await your recovery.

However, if your recovery takes more than a week, then we'll likely need to split up your partnership so that your partner's learning and progress are not hindered any further. You two would still continue working on the Program and supporting one another throughout, but just not learning collaboratively anymore. We will try to re-pair you if we have another solo student in the exact same spot in the curriculum, but we cannot guarantee that option. If it comes down to it, you may have to finish the rest of the curriculum alone, or we could slot you in another pair as a 3-man team.

We do have a great support structure in place that ensures that no matter what happens to you and your coding partner, you will each stay supported and motivated throughout your learning journey.
