Hi Blake, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It sounds like you're frustrated with the amount of outside work needed to master the material. To give our students a solid full-stack foundation in an intensive, part-time format, our instructors do cover a great deal of knowledge in a limited amount of time. Our goal is to make sure students are clear before enrolling that they will need to spend 20-30 hours a week studying outside of class to be job-ready by graduation. For anyone struggling with the concepts presented, we do offer weekly one-on-one tutoring, TA hours, a wealth of subject materials to aid compression, and a student success manager to get back on track.

We've found that the soft skills gained through structured self-study, such as problem-solving, perseverance, and self-teaching, are critical for success in today's workplace. Similarly, this methodology fosters a more structured and motivational technique of self-study, especially for individuals such as yourself, who have previously attempted to teach themselves how to code. While our curriculum is regularly updated based on market demand, we want our students to graduate with the skills to quickly learn new frameworks and languages on their own, as the technical job market is always changing.

As the course progresses, most students do feel more and more confident in their skills, knowledge, and mastery of the material. We hope that this the case for you as well. We are constantly striving to improve the classroom experience through a variety of practices including weekly student feedback forms, video audits of the classroom, and instructor coaching sessions. Our team is continually updating our course material and instructional support to ensure students have the best learning experience possible, so we appreciate your input. 

As you noted, the UCI Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to develop the UCI Coding Boot Camp. TES is a leading workforce accelerator that has partnered with more than 35 top universities to support their skills-based learning program efforts in order to provide invaluable support to every single boot camp participant. Both UCI and TES aim to be transparent about this partnership through our websites, marketing, admissions process, enrollment materials, and throughout the course experience. UCI is deeply involved in the curriculum and outcomes for all of their programs. Our main priority is and will continue to always be the success of our students.

This is a rigorous and fast-paced program, so we commend all the hard work and practice you have dedicated to reaching the halfway point. We sincerely care about our students and would like to further discuss your current experience with you to ensure you have the necessary support you may need as you approach the final months of your boot camp journey. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (949) 214-4016.

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We regret your experience did not meet your expectations. We understand what a big life decision applying and enrolling in our course is for our students. You are correct that due to student feedback, the start date for the August cohort that you were originally enrolled in was postponed until 2019; this deferment will allow us to make modifications to the course curriculum in order to deliver a robust program for your future training needs.

We apologize for not initiating a more prompt refund following the cancellation of your class, as we know you made a substantial investment in your education. Unfortunately, we could not begin your refund process until after we verified a transfer could not be made to the remaining UX/UI cohort. When our admissions coordinator emailed you back in regard to processing your reimbursement, we did note that the request could take a few weeks - as evidenced by your refund being successfully issued on Monday. We strive to be communicative throughout every step of our process and understand a swift and responsive reply on our part could have provided a more seamless experience for you.

We are looking forward to reintroducing the UX/UI program in the upcoming year and hope you will reconsider us once again. We are constantly striving to improve our student experience, so we truly value your input in this matter. We would love to hear from you directly to further discuss your concerns. If you would like, please reach out to us at (949) 214-4016.

Hi Chris, thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're always striving to improve the student experience, and feedback like yours helps us do just that.

We are glad to hear you had a great experience with our instructional team. We greatly admire the support and dedication our team members put into helping every student in our program. 

Because we teach such a wide array of technologies in a short amount of time, our curriculum focuses on giving students a high level, hands-on understanding of the topics covered in class, with the goal of students expanding on that understanding outside of class. While we do begin with the fundamentals, our program does quickly dive into technologies that are in high demand in today's market. We are constantly evaluating our curriculum and we use student feedback and market research to make changes regularly. While we are proud of curriculum and its ability to give students a very strong set of web development skills, we do regret to hear that the curriculum did not go as in-depth into the fundamentals as you would have liked. 

Our career services are built on the principle of empowerment, equipping students with the soft skills needed to be employer competitive through readiness services like resume support, technical interview training, portfolio reviews, and 1:1 coaching. While we do not offer guaranteed job placement, many of our students were very successful in the job search, with students from this cohort securing employment in various roles like Data Engineer, Computer Programmer, and Front End Developer at companies like Hyper Disk Marketing, Global Net Solutions, Target Specialty Products, Cake, Toshiba America Medical Systems, and more.

Our goal is for all students to leave our program feeling equipped for success. If there are any other additional learning materials or assistance that we can provide you with at this time, please reach out to me directly at (949) 214-4016, so that we can discuss further.

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review! Insights such as these are very useful to future boot camp students. Although our admissions process is designed to be as painless as possible, our programs aren’t open enrollment. Because we want to make sure that students who enroll in our program are properly suited to the demands involved, we do screen our applicants with a coding test and academic interview before they are enrolled into a course.

We’re so glad to hear that you’re having such a positive experience with this program, it’s wonderful that the part-time schedule was manageable with your ongoing career as this schedule was designed for working professionals, just like you.

We’re thrilled that you are enjoying the career services, curriculum, and that you are becoming comfortable coding. It’s wonderful to see our  students develop a passion for programming. As you mention, the in-person classroom experience is an important part of our program and allows for invaluable opportunities to ask questions and collaborate with peers, so it’s excellent that our team has been able to provide you with the guidance and support you need to be successful in this program.

We hope you're proud of all of the hard work you’ve put into this program, and we can’t wait to see where your new skills will take you. We wish you nothing but the best moving forward.

Hi Natalie,
 
Thank you for reaching out. We sincerely apologize for any miscommunication or confusion that occurred during your admissions experience.
 
Once a student is accepted into the program, they do receive an email explaining that in order to guarantee a seat in the class and enroll, the next step is to pay the deposit. At this point in time, you are correct that no agreement or confirmation of enrolling has been made. Students also receive an electronic agreement to sign and return should they move forward with payment/enrollment. This trusted system was chosen not only to make it easier for students to digitally sign the documents rather than having to print and scan, but also to facilitate record keeping. We are sorry if this digital format was not what you were expecting and have made a note to explain better to all students in the future. We appreciate your pointing this out.
 
If a student declines the program, we always call the student to learn how we can better our program. We try to maintain a relationship with even those applicants that choose to pursue other schools. The important item for us is that you are getting the education you seek. You mentioned via email that you had decided to pursue learning to code through other avenues, our advisor simply meant to congratulate you on that endeavor and let you know that our program would be here should you ever change your mind.

Regarding the auto-charge email notification, you should not have received that email as it was intended for an enrolled student. As you mentioned, we did not have your credit card information on file and so no charge could have been made. With many emails sent each day, human error does happen and we apologize for the alarm it caused.
 
We are constantly working to improve our processes and overall experience, and we thank you for your feedback.

Thank you for sharing your experience. From your review, we understand the program did not meet your expectations. As you noted, the UCI Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer the UC Irvine Coding Boot Camp. UCI is deeply involved in the curriculum, instructor selection, and outcomes of each of our classes, and routinely meet in conjunction with TES to monitor the learning experience and performance. Both UCI and TES are completely dedicated to transforming students' lives and are fully transparent about this relationship throughout the entire course.

Like you mentioned, we do have a multi-step admissions process. During this time, we evaluate individuals to ensure they are aware of the extensive time they will have to dedicate to their studies and are truly committed to their web development journey. We never want to set up students for failure, which is why we begin with an initial phone interview, followed by a timed, academic test that applicants must pass with a score of 70 or above in order to move forward, followed by a final critical thinking interview with a member of our academic team. Only once prospective learners have passed all three screenings are they accepted into the course.

We do our best to emphasize the importance of students completing the assigned pre-work, as well as studying on their own before classes begin. We take pride in our comprehensive curriculum and holistic approach to learning, and as we know this course is challenging, we provide additional support in the form of free tutoring sessions, office hours with instructors and TAs, and optional one-on-one meetings. While we do not secure employment for our students, our career services are built on the principle of empowerment and provide more than 75 hours of professional development, consisting of resume and portfolio reviews, virtual tech panels, technical interview training, and 1:1 meetings with their Career Director. We hope you were able to benefit from these resources and appreciate your input as we're frequently enhancing our services to ensure students feel supported and equipped for success.

It's our mission to help as many hard-working, aspiring web developers as we can. We sincerely care about each one of our students and continually strive to make sure participants feel supported every step of the way. We would love to speak to you personally to see if there is anything else we can do to reinforce your knowledge or employment search. If you would like, please reach out to us at (949) 214-4016.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. It's our mission for all students to have a positive learning experience in our programs, so we regret to hear the boot camp did not live up to your expectations.

Like you mentioned, we do have a multi-step admissions process. During this time, we evaluate individuals to ensure they are not only aware of the extensive time they will have to dedicate to their studies and but are also truly committed to their coding journey. Applicants begin with an initial phone interview, followed by a timed assessment and a final critical thinking interview with a member of our academic team. Only once prospective students have successfully passed all three stages are they accepted into the course.

As this is a boot camp, we know the material is fast-paced and challenging, moving quickly from one complex topic to the next. Our curriculum is strategically engineered using extensive market and employer research on the most in-demand skills for the industry, and we are constantly making optimizations to the course material as the industry evolves. We pride ourselves on teaching individuals how to learn, providing a strong foundational skill set that will allow them to easily dive into other frameworks and languages, even after completing the program. We are always working to ensure that students are having the best learning experience possible, so we appreciate your feedback.

From your review, we understand that our career services were not what you were hoping for. Our team is built on the principle of empowerment, and we strive to support and guide learners throughout their job search. While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we work to empower individuals with the resources and support they need to enter the workforce.

We are incredibly proud of the outcomes our students have achieved with hard work and dedication, but we do not report on placement rates because we believe the appropriate measures of a boot camp lie in the quality and services offered. We take pride on our comprehensive curriculum and holistic approach to learning, providing more than 75 hours of professional development to each individual, consisting of technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, online Tech Talk panels, and one-on-one meetings with their Career Director. We hope you were able to fully benefit from all of these resources.

It is our goal for all students to leave the course feeling properly equipped to step out into the industry. We would love the opportunity to speak with you further about how we can supplement your learning experience or career search at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (949) 214-4016.
