    Great introduction

    I wanted to explore a new career path and the 10-week User Experience Design course at Brainstation was a great experience. It helped me understand the basics of UX and gave me a good overview of the field. The instructor was an expert in the field and showed us examples from his own work experience, which was very helpful.
    I would definitely recommend this course for people who want to introduce themselves into UX.

    Digital Marketing Certificate

    I took the Digital Marketing certificate course in early February. The course contained a large amount of information and the pace of the course is rather fast to ensure all topics are covered. That being said, this means the course information is very compressed; take the course if you're willing to put in the time to re-read information after class. Scott (teacher) was extremely helpful in providing real-life situational examples of when to use certain methods (Paid ads, PR releases, S...

    User Experience Design

    The instructors were extremely knowledgeable and I learned a lot in the 3 months I took this course! It definitely gave me the basics of UX in a short time though the learning continues after. You get pushed to produce a lot in a short time and in the end, you come out with some version of portfolio. They helped me a lot with my projects and the feedback was good. Be prepared to breathe, eat, and sleep UX though! Being job ready is up to you once the course ends though.

    Alum of Python and Data science ciurse

    I’ve taken the the live python bootcamp and the data science virtual class. I’ve take a number of exec Ed courses and boot camps and I’ll very happy with Brainstation. Instructors aren’t just reading a long python worksheet - they’re willing to answer questions. And the materials are really excellent - I often go back to them. And this is written as a person who is totally new to programming. Highly recommend

    Brain station was a great start in my UX journey of building the foundation that I needed to pursue UX. I was able to learn the whole entire process of figuring out what the UX problem is, building personas, and other tools to help me solve the problem.

    Amazing experience to get foot into the door

    I took the month long data science bootcamp at Brainstation( NYC soho campus) and loved every moment of it. The instructor was very knowledgeable and introduced the topic really well. This is NOT an intro to programming class so if you register, make sure you understand how to code. The instructor did a fantastic job helping people who had no prior coding experience and I felt that took time off the main topic: Data Science.
    After this bootcamp, you will have all the ...
