    UX Design Diploma Program

    The lead educator was knowledgeable and a strong teacher. The curriculum provided a solid foundation to UX Design, and I felt confident to be able to apply for junior UX design roles upon program completion.  The teachers provide great support throughout the program, and a positive learning atmosphere. There is a career support program as well that provided valuable knowledge and guidance to the job hunt process.

    The First step!

    BrainStation was the perfect start for my career change, they have great lectures and even better instructors. Instructors were always ready to answer any questions and provide tools to make a great challenge seem a little bit more manageable, their passion for teaching and their true desire to see us succeed is the reason that sets apart BrainStation from any other Bootcamp.

    UX Design Bootcamp

    The course was beyond my expectation. I had previous self learned knowledge going into the program, however I was able to strengthen and develop my skills even further from this course! The instructors were extremely supportive and knowledgable, and the lectures were engaging and helpful. The assignments were very successful in preparing us for industry work. BrainStations has a really strong job assistance team, the career success sessions really supported students throughout and after ...

    Digital Marketing Diploma

    I completed the digital marketing diploma at BrainStation in 2020. I loved the program overall. Mel, our instructor was very patient and experience in the field. She answered all the questions and made sure she had enough office hours for more assistance. The program was nice and provided me adequate knowledge. It's good to give you an overview of everything but it would really help if some areas such as data and SEO was a little bit more detailed. Something that would tremendously help ...

    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!)

    Get out what you put in

    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...
