    Data Science Online

    TL;DR: Brainstation offers a good curriculum and a great way to spend 12 weeks. With enough effort in your coursework and projects after graduation, Brainstation's bootcamp can be a good way to make the jump into an entry level data analyst role. It is probably not a silver bullet which will instantly get you into a data science role at a top company however.

    Web Dev

    My overall experience with the bootcamp is positive, but there were certain elements that were disappointing. I'm not sure if it was because everything was online, but the teaching was outrageously bad. The head instructor spent the majority of his time debugging and not teaching, which led a lot of the students to not trust the instructor and do research on their own after lectures. The curriculum is fast paced so it made everything worse with improper instruction.

    Web Development Bootcamp (Full-Time)

    I, like many here, made the decision to pursue a career in a new field. When I decided that Web Development was going to be the path of choice, I had read about the many bootcamps available. It was quite daunting to decide on which bootcamp was going to be the best fit for me and my future career in this field! However, through research of the curriculum, common industry tech stacks and reviews of each particular school, I landed on BrainStation as being the best choice. I am definitely ...

    Great online UX/UI course to motivate you to learn more!

    The course in UX and UI Certificate Course in BrainStation has been super great to set up my base in UX/UI Design and really apply them in a short amount of time. The instructors are always ready to help you and keep you engaged.
    Would really recommend if you want to learn the base of UX/UI and put it into immediate practice (its especially helpful getting feedback from your peers and instructors in the course!)

    I really enjoyed my time here. I have come from a field where I thought I wouldn't have any applicable skills. The TA's and Educators helped changed my perspective on this, they helped me understand that is my journey, that I am only applying my skills differently. 

    The course content moves fast, what do you expect? it is a 12 week program and you are coming from 0 - don't expect depth into everything, take notes on what interests you, dive into that before class, ask questions in...

    Fun, insightful and good basis for further learning

    This 10 week data analytics course covered all the right topics and tools, taking you through key Excel skills, SQL and Tableau. The curriculum was great, I wish a little less time was spent on Excel and more time on the features of Tableau. The instructors were knowledgeable and helpful, though I wish there was more opportunity to collaborate with other students rather than it being lecture style due to taking the class online. Would of appreciated more guidance on the assignment struct...

    Data Science (Pandemic edition) - not great

    When BrainStation said they had cutting edge education, I expected cutting edge content AND pedagogy. However, it just felt like a university class with less students. It is already well known that teachers should be considering different learning styles, but only the ones who can sit in 8 hours of lecture with sometimes no exercises learned much. BrainStation also said that we would have a practice interview with a real recruiter, but this did not happen at all... Another thing is that ...

    Brainstation Review

     My initial form of contact occurred in early December. I spoke with an advisor to discuss my background and interest in the program. Within that conversation, I discussed my economic status at that time and became attracted to Brainstation because scholarships were offered to applicants. I made certain to clearly articulate that I would need full coverage offered in a scholarship in order to pursue a course such as web development since I was not employed.
