    Great use of time

    Very intense 3 months where you learn a lot with tons of hands on practise, following a well structured course curriculum. 
    Educators are very helpful too. 

    I was lucky to get a BC government grant as unemployed. That said, I think the regular $16000 is very expensive.

    Learned so much more than expected

    I enjoyed my web development bootcamp at BrainStation so much. It was an amazing experience with clear explanations of the instructors for each topic and all the support from the TAs. The curriculum was well structured, I just needed to show up and absorb all I could without thinking about learning by myself during the whole process. The projects that we worked on each week always matched the subject we were learning and allowed us to apply our skills straight away. We also had a chance ...

    Excellent educators, good bootcamp structure, sub-optimal post-bootcamp career support


    As a recent graduate of the software engineering bootcamp, I can attest to the program's effectiveness in equipping students with the necessary skills for a career in tech. The educators were undoubtedly the highlight of the experience, demonstrating exceptional knowledge and a genuine passion for teaching. Their dedication and willingness to provide personalized assistance made complex concepts digestible and fostered a supportive learning environment.

    Fun, Clear, Supportive

    My bootcamp was fun, clear, and supportive. The material was presented in a straightforward way that made it easy to understand, even for someone with limited experience. The instructors were patient and always willing to help, creating a supportive atmosphere where I felt comfortable asking questions and seeking guidance.The hands-on approach made learning enjoyable and engaging. Instead of just listening to lectures, we got to dive right in and start...

    Incredible and intense experience

    I just completed the UX Design Bootcamp and I can share a few things from my experience:
    The environment is excellent, professional and friendly.
    The educators (Brad, Jamie and Josh) were amazing during the 12 weeks, always positive, supportive and giving good feedback.
    Still talking about the educators, I want to highlight when Jamie shared a schedule to help us better organize our work time. After that, I started creating schedules to manage my time better, and it was a game-c...

    Solid Curriculum and Instructors. I'd Do it Again!

    What an amazing experience.
    If you are prepared to put in a LOT of work then you will get a LOT out of it.
    The instructors are clearly all very passionate about design and best practices.
    I wish the bootcamp was longer truly, as I love design, learning in general and had such a lovely time.
    The emphasis on collaboration, storytelling and industry trends was really helpful with improving my creative mindset.

    I was able to create a full stack application at the end of the bootcamp. Despite taking it online, lectures are very engaging and educators and teaching assistants are very helpful. Also, having the same goals in the cohort just helps elevate each other. I highly recommend this bootcamp.

    The best educators ever!

    BrainStation was overall a great experience! Prior to joining this bootcamp, I was doubtful of my skills in development and was having troubles wrapping my head around complex topics. But from the first day in, the way my educators explained concepts, allowed us to put those concepts into practice, and later cement those topics by utilizing them in larger projects, helped me tremendously. I can confidently say that I am now a full stack developer! And the best part is that I got to do it...
