    It’s been 8 months since I graduated from BrainStation full-time UX design bootcamp. It was an amazing experience which turned me to a designer as I wished. I’m now a UI/UX designer in a development agency and having fun. I got the job offer in week 9 - big shoutout to my instructor Brad who helped me with the performance check during the interview process as well as my TA Uzair who helped refurbish my resume and cover letter completely.

    A bit of my background: Before joining the program, I was working as a 3D artist in a VR studio, then quit coz it’s crap. Then I was home tutoring high-school kids for half a year, then stopped coz it’s frustrating (I was making good money out of it but not my thing). I wanted to be a designer doing some cool shit, but never had a job opportunity to get started. I sent my resume and portfolio to a bunch of companies in Vancouver, got responses, got tests, got interviews, but never got the position. I realized leaving the industry for a couple of months (when I was tutoring) made my sense dull and skills rusty - I need a place where I could sharpen everything again and get my thunder back.

    I’m gonna share some reasons I joined BrainStation and how the results ended up. If you have a similar situation and consider whether to join the program or not, my story may help you.

    I’m a layman. I need a place to teach me both practices and theories. I tried counting on myself to learn the skillset and toolkit of UX design, but it was frustrating coz I literally didn’t know where to start! To learn software first? Or read books? Or do a small project? UX is such a giant shit blackhole and could almost suck everything in: business analysis, research, information architecture, UI design, interaction design, visual design, content writing, or even front-end if you wanna be entitled as ‘full-stack designer’ (fascinating) - whatever you can possibly associate with product development. Yeah UX design is such a sugarcoated beast, sounds high-end, easy-going, user-friendly, but in reality quite intimidating and could bite your head off - if you dive in blindly without fair guidance. As a 3D modeler before, I did know Adobe Suite, but in terms of the current tools of UI/UX design such as Sketch, InVision, Principle, etc., I’m a total outsider. Fortunately, during the pre-course, I learned the essentials of Sketch and InVision from the step-by-step tutorials; then throughout the next 10 weeks, I was improving my hard skills considerably by working on the weekly homework and capstone project. The instructor and TA would teach us tips every now and then to quicken our speed of work. As for theories, I did know user-centered design and some relevant approaches such as user stories, usability testing, but they were too scattered in my mind and never systematically came into shape as a ‘UX tree’ or ‘UX umbrella’. What BrainStation does is breaking down the whole UX topic to 10 smaller ones - each topic per week. Each week we focused on one topic and did homework around it to deepen our understanding. Meanwhile, we could update our capstone project by adopting the new stuff learned this week. The weekly basis is fast indeed, even crazy (using one week to investigate UI design, are you kidding, that’s even a job title!), but come on, this is a bootcamp and we only have 10 weeks. This curriculum is brilliant in my opinion (and PPT is well-done): it takes care of all epics of UX design such as research, IA, UI design, etc. - which should be mastered more or less as a UX-er; but in reality, we could (and should) leverage our advantages and choose to specialize in one or a few directions. Taking myself as an example, I’m more interested and better at visual stuff than research, IA or business whatever, so I actually put more weight on the chapters of UI and visual design but honestly much less on certain sections (I got 55/100 once in one of my assignments, shame… ).

    I’m lazy. Yes if nobody pulls me up, I could stay in bed for whole day. I tried saving money and studied on my own - and wonderfully, I slept in till 11 am, opened my laptop reluctantly, and lost morale in one hour. You know what’s so good after I joined the program? I COULDN’T SLACK OFF! Yeah I was busy like shit: class from 9 to 5, homework stacking up, capstone project crying for feed, workshops awaiting, portfolio pending - gosh, don’t ever underestimate ‘FULL-TIME’ training (this is not a joke). Frankly, the workload is immense - I was working in the evening, during the weekend, sometimes burning night oil. It’s not only because I myself wanted to work harder, but once I saw my classmates working their asses off, how could I sit still and enjoy the couch potato time? Most importantly, we paid to learn, so the only way not wasting the money is - work hard!! It’s painstaking, but it will pay off. Everyone in my cohort was progressing so much - I’ve seen people who made stunning interfaces in the end even having zero design background at the very beginning.  

    I’m an introvert. I bet you all know socializing is as important as swimming when you’re in the job-hunting vortex. Sadly, I’m afraid of socializing and terrible at selling stuff. ESL is a reason but it’s more about my personality. I desperately needed a community at that moment where I could find a comfort zone with like-minded people. And yes BrainStation is like that for me. Amazingly, our cohort had 12 folks, and we teamed up differently for multiple projects, so everyone had a chance to work with each other. Every Friday, we went to a bar to grab beers after class. At the night of graduation, we barbecued and sang karaoke like a bunch of weirdos! People are professional at school but could be so wild afterward! The instructors are also super approaching (yeah they joined our beer too) and other staff are quite helpful (just ask them if you need a favor.) Besides, we have tech-talks, workshops, and presentations every week, so don’t worry, you’ll be pushed under the spotlight and try your best to entertain the audience! In summary, if you’re like me, not good at networking, then at least you will have your cohort and the staff, which will become your own community and, it’s still growing.

    Last but not least, I bet the tuition is a big concern to most of us and I admit it’s not a small amount indeed. I was jobless and broke from the moment I gave up on tutoring, so yeah I thought about this a lot. So I tried two options to make it less unaffordable: firstly, applying for the scholarship. Do ask the staff what kind of scholarship you are eligible for; secondly, there’s an installment option to pay off the debt in 12 months (and I chose this). Good news is you can use the tuition for tax return, yeah! And once you land on a new job after graduation, I suppose you won’t mind this educational investment. (The common salary of junior UI/UX designer in BC is 40k-50k)

    In conclusion, this was my happiest training experience, maybe because I finally found what I like to do. I hope my story could help you in any way. Good luck and keep it up!

    Having no formal Digital Marketing experience, Brainstation’s 10 week course allowed me to be immerse myself in a learning environment that helped me gain in depth knowledge on the subject. From the content, instructors, interactive classroom and being able to display my new dynamic skills through the final project. I highly recommend this course to anyone who’s new to the marketing field or wants to brush up on their current marketing skills.

    The Data Science course offered by Brainstation gives the students a comprehensive overview of some of the major tools associated with collecting and cleaning and visualizing data - Excel, SQL, Tableau. 

    The course was a great learning experience. It was my first time doing an online course, and there is an art to getting the most out of that type of environment. In essence, there is a bit of a curve to knowing how to get the best out of an online course. If you are self-driven, you will succeed. 

    The concepts were explained slowly and clearly by the course instructor, who was readily available. Sometimes this can be a little fast or a little slow depending on each person in the class, but generally it was at a good pace. The breakout sessions within the classes ran smoothly, and it was easy to connect with classmates. 

    If you have no experience with Excel, there would be value in doing a course in that platform as a prerequisite, but otherwise, this was understandble by people without any data background. 

    All-in, the course is highly recommended whether you are a manager learning to better communicate with staff in this field, or someone looking to upgrade their skills and position.

    I attended BrainStation UX Design 5-week classroom certificate course. My trainer was Gerard and he had a tremendous industry experience. Since it was a UX Design course, my trainer focused on understanding the process of UX design. His intent, for us as student, was to make us aware about what are the steps of UX design and then follow them in order to arrive at the final design. The course objective was not to make us learn a particular tool but to know the process and that's how my trainer approached the class. 

    During the class, I interacted with my cohort students an learnt a lot from them. Since the project was individually driven, students in the class helped out in refining the user interviews, intevriew script, initial testing etc. 

    Course curriculum was apptly designed and being hands-on in learning made me understand lot of concepts which I will remember for life.

    I will surely recommend this course to aspiring UX students.

    i just recently finished the online live Product Management course and I learned a tremendous amount about how to take a product idea from just a concept to launch. At first, I was skeptical about the online live classroom setting, but it was actually a great experience! The instructor, Ari, was very engaging and he was very straight forward. He taught the content very well and he was willing to take the time to discuss questions or ideas outside of class privately. 

    I also really enjoyed all the group discussions/activities and it was a way for all the students to learn about each other’s ideas and provide feedback.

    I would definitetly recommend this class or any BrainStation class to anyone looking into taking one!

    I just recently finished the User Experience Full time diploma course at BrainStation last summer 2019 and to sum it up in one sentence “one of the best experiences ever!!” 

    Just for some background, I took the course during the summer before my last year of University and I could not be happier that I took the opportunity to join BrainStation. The whole experience definitely gave me the foundation and understanding of UX design which I was not able to learn in my traditional university schooling. Also they were able to emphasize the right design thinking principles that employers are looking for during interviews and employment. I definitely feel much more confident in my skills and in my ability to find a job after I graduate university. The instructors were definitely what made the course what it is. Our lead instructor, Brad, was amazing and it was obvious he had a lot of experience in the field so we definitely knew that all his advice would be applicable to real world settings. Also our TA Denise was also very knowledgable in UX and had a lot of experience. She was very helpful when we had blockers and everything.

    Overall, i would definitely recommend this course to whoever is considering moving into the UX field. Great community and great instructors!

    I recently completed the Digital Marketing course at Brainstation in Toronto. Wow. I will be candid when many colleagues and friends told me not to take a course at Brainstation, but rather to use free online learning tools. As a diehard classroom nerd, I am very satisfied with my choice to take the plunge and go to Brainstation. The course material was invaluable and the accelerated format really immersed you in the subject matter. The most valuable aspect for me was expanding my network with other digital marketers and entrepreneurs. Meeting people face to face at Brainstation is exactly why you should go to Brainstation. Many of us in the classroom were starting our own business, expanding our clientele and knowledge or hoping to be digital marketers. I made incredible connections which I know will fuel future success. I would recommend Brainstation to anyone, and I am hoping to do another course soon!

    I was looking for something to take me to the next level in my professional skill set, and the 12-week Full-time Web Development Diploma Program with BrainStation did that, and so much more.

    Honestly, you still couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face from this recent experience!

    The instructors and staff at BrainStation go over and above in presenting you with real world experience, while of course helping you learn all the fundamental skills required as to current industry standards. At the beginning, they don’t pull any punches in terms of laying out the emotional journey all students will go through as it is an intensive course, but immediately you feel their support. You can really tell how much it matters to them that you, as a student, get everything possible from the chosen program, and have bunch of fun while doing so.

    My biggest take away from the Web Dev program were that I learned a lot of the ‘whys’ that come with development… “Why doesn’t it work?”… “Why DOES it work?”… “Why do we do it this way?”, and so on. These questions had hindered me in past and held me back in many ways. Now, not only were they made clear, but also I learned how to break down and answer ‘whys’ for myself. This always makes me think of this old piece of proverbial wisdom:

    “Give a person a fish, and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish, and you feed them for a lifetime.”

    Well, I have to tell you, I sure enjoyed my fishing lesson! ;)

    BrainStation is an amazing place to learn. It is not just for people who are looking for career transformation but for anyone who is passionate to learn on specific topics.

    I took full time UX design diploma program in the summer of 2019 and I personally feel that this is how an education system should look like - it gives you hands on experience on projects (not just one but many). It prepares you for the real world and helps you to be industry ready. 

    It is an intense program which requires only diligence and dedication from our part but then we don't have to push ourselves to learn hard. It happens naturally. That's how the lessons are structured. Every single step of the course is carefully thought out starting from a pack of business cards on day 1 at the campus to lesson plans, workshops, power hours, tech tours, hackathon and finally the fantastic demo day on the 12th week. Demo day gives you a chance to pitch your project to industry people and public. It opens a new door for a number of business contacts.

    I really like that the educators are always available for questions, feedback or suggestions. They give us knowledge on plenty of resources out there related to the field.
     
    I would highly recommend Brain Station to anyone who needs a boost of confidence in their career or simply thirst for knowledge.

    I just completed the 2-day Search Engine Optimization Training course and overall was very satisfied with the experience.

    Going into the course my goal was to learn a few quick SEO tips/tricks that I could apply to my own websites to help them rank higher on search engines. I ended up getting that and much more, including what SEO is actually about and a number of long-term strategies for optimizing my websites.

    The course was taught by an SEO professional who knew his stuff very well and was able to articulate concepts clearly with real-life examples. He also provided us with a few great tools to see what people are searching for and to find potential SEO flaws with our websites.

    My only criticism with the course (which is minor) is that not all of the curriculum was applicable to concepts I learned at a prior BrainStation course. The web dev course that I took last year taught students how to build React websites so I assumed the SEO course would have been geared more towards those types of websites. Despite not focusing on React websites many of the tips and tools learned could still be applied so the course was still effective.

    Overall, I found the course to be beneficial and would recommend it to friends and colleagues.

    This was a 2 day online intensive SEO course.  I am located on the Westcoast and the course was based out of Toronto and other than the early start in my day, I had never participated in an online live experience before.  With a little technical glitch at the beginning on my end, the instructor Trevor helped me to sort it out and I quickly got up to speed. 

    I was probably one of the only non-digital or developer professional in the group and I found that with effort I was able to keep up and even produce a final project in the end.  It was likely a bit more intense for me because a lot of the material was fresh, but there was lots of support and all questions were answered clearly and thoughtfully.  Highly recommend for anyone who owns a website - even if outsourcing SEO.. Valuable.

For this reason, I highly recommend not having a job during the course to allow you focus and excel. I really enjoyed this course and feel energized to start my new career as a UX designer. If you're looking for a career shift and don't have a lot of time or money to go through other avenues, this is a great option and a lot of fun.

    I came into this bootcamp nervous. With no background in design, I was sceptical about what I could learn in 3 months. I am happy to say after graduating and looking back, I have learned everything I hoped I would and more. I had the chance to gain first hand insight into what working in the industry looks like. Formed valuable relationships with my peers and instructors.   Met with professionals in the field and gained the confidence I need to begin pursuing opportunities in UX and putting myself out there.

    I was intrigued to take this course after attending a Digital Marketing workshop led by the Digital Marketing instructor Sarah Budeja - her knowledge and skills are what really made me feel confident that taking this course would give me skills that would propell me forward in my career. There are various units within this course that were absolutely invaluable such as Google Ads, Google Analytics, Paid Search / Social and the list goes on. Something that is also amazing about these classes is that there are so many interesting and brilliant individuals in the class of all age groups and walks of life that really add a fresh perspective to discussions and projects. After taking this class I feel confident I can take my career in the direction I want it to go in.

    I chose to enroll in the online UI course at Brainstation. With my work schedule along with other commitments, I thought that would be the best approach for me. 

    I’ve learned a lot of technical skills about UI including InVision, Sketch, prototyping, wireframing and creating high fidelity screens in 10 weeks. My instructor were helpful and always made themselves available.  I would say the one negative I had, is I wish we had more time to get more in depth with sketch. I know that it was a part time course, but it would’ve been better to have more practice in class. Overall though, I enjoyed my time at BrainStation.

    Coming from a traditional accounting/finance background, I wanted to build the necessary skills to pivot my career into the realm of quantitive trading using machine learning. Reflecting on my personal experience, it was quite incredible how much we learned within 12 weeks of intense studying. There is no opportunity to slack around as we move incredibly fast, therefore, it is imperative to keep up with daily lectures and assignments. What you put into the program is what you will get out!

     

    The instructors were friendly and did a good job of explaining complicated topics in a relatively simple manner. I appreciated that the instructors allocated time covering fundamental statistics and general programming before diving deeper into more complex topics. Furthermore, they were also happy to answer my plethora of questions and took time to help out wherever possible. As a whole, the Brainstation community is welcoming and the staff put in significant amounts of effort to ensure everyone has a positive experience.

     

    If I could do it over again, one thing I would ask for is an additional four weeks to the program. This would allow us to cover more advanced concepts in further detail while also granting more time for our capstone projects.

     

    This program helped uncover a hidden passion for machine learning which inspired me to advance my knowledge even further in a post-graduate degree focused on this subject.

    I am going to keep this short and concise as I know everyone is busy! My time at Brainstaion was one of the best three month periods of my life. I came into the course unsure of the result, and concerned about the course load. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the learning environment was malleable, and the educators adjusted to suite your needs as well as strengths and weaknesses. From my point of view, their education model is somewhat of a futuristic approach, mainly in the sense that you feel like you are learning and moving through every day on campus. I strongly reccomend BrainStation to anyone interested in the fields they specialize in!

    The data science bootcamp held in Vancouver is an intensive and fast-paced program. I was impressed by the amount of real-world skills attained over the course of only 12 weeks. Despite the limited time constraint, the instructors did an effective job at conveying the key fundamentals of data science/machine learning. If there had been an additional few weeks to the bootcamp, we would have likely spent additional time on more complex topics. Overall, the instructors were friendly and happy to help out with any questions. Highly recommend this program to anyone interested in a career within data science!

    What you put into this program is what you will get out. The more effort one puts into mastering the material outside of the classroom, the greater the benefit to them when working on their final capstone project and overall success with recruiting.

    BrainStation is a great course for anyone looking to do career transformation. It's a lot of work but rewarding. The network of people you meet make this school stand out.

    I was at a point in my career where I felt like I only had soft skills. I felt as though looking back in my career I hadn't really "progressed" that far in experience and when looking forward I felt a lack of trajectory.

    BrainStation gave me control over my career. I am now learning something new every week and even from the point of graduation (a few months ago) I feel as if there's an ocean of knowledge and skill gained.

    I'm now working full time at a fintech company and I'm making about 20k more than I was before. This gets me excited because not only do I love what I do, but I get compensated well for it (even for an entry level position).

    For anyone questioning whether they should take this course you'll need to ask yourself these few questions. Are you ready for a challenge? Can you sit in front of a computer for hours on end trying to learn (which does get easier with time)? And are you willing to take a risk to give control over your career?

    Within a short period of time I was able to learn so much about web development. In the end I was able to make my own website and have it be responsive. This course has sparked my interest in coding and now I want to learn more!

    I joined Brainstation’s Data Analytics Winter 2019 session with Brand Ambassador Program. It was a pretty big class (15 persons) with a diverse background (private and NGO, for self-learning and for office productivity). Our 10-weeks class was mainly thought by Nabeel (he was clear in explaining themes and data terms for ordinary people like me – thoroughly recommended!) supported by Nicole when it was closer to final project (she was patient and very constructive in giving feedback along the journey to our final project). Both instructors were brilliant data analysts, and I wish I could spend more time to learn from them.

    The classes were progressing very quickly, and you need to be self-disciplined to get the most of them – reading materials before class and practice the exercises. The primary challenge was creating your final project. You and your team will set the tone on how deep your final project will be – and I was lucky to have mine as we were having so much in finding New York City’s drunkest neighbourhood!

    Overall, I recommend this class for those who are totally new or just have a basic understanding of data analysis. Understanding advance Excel, SQL and Tableau definitely bring its perks to your work especially if you want to present data into a professional, polished look without looking "too-extra" and to be comfortable with numbers and storytelling of the numbers.

    I took the BrainStation Data Analytics course from January 2019 to March 2019 and a really awesome experience. The whole course, from the way it was managed to the material that was taught, felt very professional and like there was a lot of thought put into it. 

    The professor was very approachale and used relevant examples from his field of consulting work to help introduce complex concepts to the class. He was very patient and most of the course felt very interactive, with the students following along and working through each program (SQL, Tableau, Excel) together. 

    I work as a strategist for a marketing firm and took the course to become more data literate and advocate for a data-backed appraoch to strategy. I learned a lot about data management, what constitutes as good data and how to clean up bad data. The group project helped us apply our learnigns and is where we practiced gleaning insights from big data sets. 

    Since the classes are only once a week it's really important to try to make it to all of them. I did however have to miss one class and the professor offered to give me a quick one on one session before our next class. The more you put into staying on top of the course material and doing the assignmnets, the most you will get out of it. The course is also a great way to meet people working in an industry that you're either hoping to get into or trying enhance your current role in. 

    All in all, I had a great experience and will definitely be taking another course in the fall! 

Thanks!
