Mahdiyya Ahmed

Business Management and Marketing, Nottingham Business School

This virtual work experience was very flexible which I loved as it allowed me to do my studies whilst working alongside this and didn’t allow me to feel stressed or burned out- thank you so much!

Ellie Page

Accounting and Finance, Nottingham Business School

My Mindless Academy journey has been eye opening and very beneficial due to the new mindful skills I have learnt and the improvement of my knowledge on sustainability!

Eleftherios Serafim

Bioinformatics, University of Leicester

One of the most transformative aspects of my time at Mindless Academy was the mindset coaching. As a science student, I'm used to dealing with data and empirical evidence. The mindset coaching sessions, however, opened my eyes to the power of perspective, resilience, and emotional intelligence in professional life. These sessions have been instrumental in shaping a more holistic approach to my career and life challenges. 

Wajeeha Shoaib 

Strategic Marketing, University of Hertfordshire

My journey at Mindless Academy has been nothing short of transformative. Mindless Academy encouraged us to question the narratives we encounter daily, promoting a shift from mindless to mindful content consumption.

Ben Wilkinson

Journalism, York St John University

Mindless Academy's Virtual Work Experience boosted my confidence and helped me build a strong portfolio of work whilst looking for jobs. I'd recommend this programme to anyone, it’s a great stepping stone!
