Thank you for taking the time to share this detailed feedback, Crystal! We're thrilled you enjoyed your boot camp experience and made some close friendships—it's our goal to foster a supportive classroom environment. Like you mentioned, our program is fast-paced and designed to cover multiple concepts at a high level in a limited amount of time, so you're completely right that students should expect to spend extensive time studying and reviewing the material outside of class to gain a deeper understanding.

We're glad to hear your instructor was so knowledgeable and supportive — we also think David is fantastic. We're always working to keep our curriculum in-line with the latest market skills, so we appreciate your input on wanting to spend more time on React.

We look forward to continuing to work with you through our post-graduation career services to help you feel best prepared for the job search. Congratulations on graduating, we are proud of all the hard work and dedication you invested in your web development journey!

Congratulations on graduating, Justin! We’re thrilled you gained such a strong foundation in web development and applaud you for putting in the hard work and long hours.

We are happy you found the curriculum to be competitive and up to date, but understand you would have liked to spend more time focusing on languages and technologies like React.js and Webpack. We pride ourselves on teaching students how to learn, as we cover such a large amount of material in 12 weeks, we provide a high-level understanding of certain topics with the goal of individuals knowing how to dive into additional languages post-graduation. However, we are constantly working on improving our curriculum to ensure students are learning the most valuable and current skills and truly appreciate you sharing this input.

We couldn't agree more that this boot camp will require additional time outside of class, this is one of the reasons why we implemented a three-part admissions process, making sure potential students are aware of this commitment. Our instructors and TAs are incredibly passionate about helping students throughout every step of the way, so we’re glad to know you felt that level of support and took advantage of 1:1 sessions and supplemental tutoring. We also think Jerome is pretty amazing!

Our professional development services are built on the principle of empowerment, and our career services team strives to be clear about expectations. We frequently update our services to best equip students for the job search, and as such appreciate your insight regarding more detailed homework feedback. We’d love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to help you feel equipped for success. If you would like, please reach out to me at (510) 306-1218. Thank you for your review and we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!

Congratulations on completing the program, Alexander! We appreciate you taking the time to leave detailed feedback. As you mention, this program requires a full-time commitment and it is not recommended that students maintain outside employment during the boot camp. This is an important insight for future students to know. We understand that this course may be challenging. That is why we provide in-depth student support in the form of office hours, tutoring sessions, and a dedicated slack channel. We hope these resources were helpful to you.

We’re constantly updating our curricula, and student feedback is an important part of keeping our course material up to date, so we really appreciate your input. We hope you’re proud of all that you accomplished in this program. We wish you all the best as you move forward in your career.

Thank you for your review, David. As you noted, UC Berkeley Extension has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer the Berkeley Data Analytics Boot Camp. UC Berkeley Extension is deeply involved in the curriculum and outcomes of each of our classes, routinely meeting in conjunction with TES to monitor the learning experience and performance. 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. Both Berkeley and TES are completely dedicated to transforming individuals' lives.

We're happy to hear you found our instructional team to be helpful and knowledgeable! While we wish that all of our instructors could teach multiple cohorts throughout the year, as we only hire individuals who are active practitioners in the industry, their full-time career commitments can make this difficult. While your particular instructor may not be teaching the current class, we have an intensive vetting process for our instructors, requiring a minimum of three years of professional experience in the industry. UC Berkeley Extension vets every instructor that teaches in our boot camp programs, with fewer than 2.5% of all screened candidates selected.

It is great that you enjoyed the company of your classmates and made lasting connections. But, we understand you may have preferred more experienced classmates. While our program recommends two years of related experience, it is designed to help individuals with varying levels of proficiency. It's our mission to help as many hard-working, aspiring data analysts' as we can and we commend all those who truly commit to the course and to launching their careers — regardless of their prior knowledge or professional backgrounds. We do have a three-part admissions screening process to make sure that those who commit to this course will be set up for success.

We regret that our career services did not live up to your expectations. While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we empower them the best we can with the necessary tools and support for entering the job market. Like you mentioned, we do provide several support services including technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, online Tech Talk panels, and one-on-one meetings with the Career Director. Our career services curriculum is designed and evaluated based on local demands and the input of local employers, to ensure our students are best positioning themselves during the application and interview process.   

We understand that you would have liked to spend more time covering fundamental mathematics and experimental design on clean data, and less time on front-end web visualization. As this program is centered around both data analysis and visualization, we do dedicate time to JavaScript (D3.js, Leaflet.js) as our research has found that these skills make our students more well-rounded and competitive. Our course is designed to provide students with the skills and abilities to quickly learn new concepts and tools on their own (as the technical job market is always changing). We believe this methodology, and covering a wide range of topics at a macro level, helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach — keys skills in the data industry. We truly appreciate your feedback as our curriculum is frequently updated to ensure that it is aligned with the latest market needs.

We're always looking for new ways to expand our services to best serve the needs of our students, so we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you further. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (510) 306-1218.

Thank you for your feedback, Denis. Like you mentioned, our Data Analytics program does cover several fundamental skills, such as Python programming, databases, and front-end web visualization.

Hi Nicki, we first want to congratulate you on your dedication to this rigorous program! Thank you for taking the time to share your student experience with us, as we consider each review an opportunity for improvement. We know this is an immersive course and like you mentioned, it is fast-paced and time-intensive, requiring hours of supplemental work and studying outside of the classroom.

Our program prides itself on teaching students how to learn, providing a strong foundational skillset to be able to master additional data concepts and tools post-graduation. While we do cover a wide variety of topics at a high level, this foundation of knowledge allows individuals to learn how to problem-solve and self-teach, a key skill needed in a data analyst's career. We do find that as the course progresses, students become more and more confident in the knowledge they have learned and feel empowered to apply their skills in the professional world after the program. However, we are constantly working on improving our curriculum to ensure students are successfully able to learn the most valuable and in-demand technologies.

It is our goal to support students throughout the entire boot camp journey through in-class assistance, office hours, tutoring sessions, and other channels like Slack, phone, and email, but we regret that you felt that the support you received was not what you needed, particularly following the departure of your TA. Your Career Director did provide your cohort an in-depth job search workshop focused on data roles following graduation, as well as an Employer Competitive Resources sheet. Did you find these to be helpful? We understand you would have preferred a more tailored career services experience, and while we do customize our Career Services by programs, we sincerely appreciate this feedback as it helps us improve and ensure we are meeting our students' needs. We strive to set clear expectations and provide individualized support through technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, and more, but we are continually refining our career services to best help students prepare for the job search.

The student experience does not end upon graduation, as it is our goal for all students to leave the program feeling confident in their new skills and prepared for success in the job search. We would love the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how else we can support you at this time, whether through additional learning materials or career support. Please reach out to me at (510) 306-1218. We wish you the best of luck as you move forward in your endeavors!

We would also welcome the opportunity to provide you with any additional career support you might need, so please reach out directly at (510) 306-1218 if you would like to discuss this further. Once again, we congratulate you on your achievements and wish you the best as you go forward!

Thank you, Maggie! As you discovered, it takes hours of additional studying and practice outside of the classroom to successfully immerse oneself in the topics covered each week, so we appreciate you pointing that out. You did a great job at balancing your schedule, and this is great feedback to share with prospective students.

It makes us incredibly proud to hear our team was committed to providing you with the help and guidance you needed throughout the program. We also think Peter, Alex, and David are pretty amazing! Congratulations on completing the program, we applaud all of your hard work. Best of luck in your future endeavors!
