Yes! Microverse is a full-time program and takes around 10 months to complete which is a long time to work without taking a break. We encourage all of our students to take a week-long break after they have completed the Ruby on Rails module of the Main Curriculum. This is a great achievement and we believe that if you've made it this far you deserve a break! The timing of this break is not certain as it will depend on how quickly you are progressing through the program.
Can I take a week off other than the break after Rails?
Unfortunately, as Microverse is a collaborative program we cannot allow students to take week-long breaks at other points in the program. Taking breaks not only affects your progress but also that of your coding partner and your standup team. Please don't plan any holidays or breaks for any time other than after you've completed the Ruby on Rails module.
Can I take time off for local or religious holidays?
We embrace all cultures and religions and understand if you have official local or religious holidays that you need to request off. All requests for time off should be made in advance to ensure minimal disruption to you and your coding partner.
