    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!

    I have a small start-up and wanted to obtain more information about online marketing when I happened upon the programs offered by BrainStation. The Digital Marketing course provided the perfect overview to help me understand what I was up against.

    The class was a mix of professionals honing their skills, recent graduates layering their resumes and the inexperienced in need of guidance.

    The content was thorough and goal oriented. It was obviously applicable to all experience levels. The instructors were knowledgeable and engaging. The feedback they provided upon completion of the course was invaluable.

    I am looking forward to continuing studies at BrainStation. Up next, Social Media Marketing!

    I had just completed the Digital Marketing course at BrainStation New York. It had been a positive learning experience since my first class with BrainStation. The instructor truly cares for students and went above and beyond by coming early or staying later to answer our questions or give us career advice. The course touches on the fundamental aspects of digital marketing today, which built solid knowledge foundation for me to be able to create and execute effective marketing strategies.

    I had a really good experience with the BrainStation UX Design part-time course. This is a 10 week long course that meets once a week in the evenings. Because it's only 10 classes long, it's VERY fast paced. The environment was great though - being surrounded by other professionals who were motivated to learn was greatly motivating for me too. The instructors were great, super approachable, and actual industry professionals which was very important to me. Overall I really enjoyed my time in class and came away with a strong knowledge of UX and a project to showcase in my portfolio.

    I recently completed the Social Media Marketing course at BrainStation and absolutely loved the experience - I have a background in Digital Marketing but wanted to brush up on my knowledge of Social Media from a business perspective, as well as learn more about paid advertising and analytics. 

    The course covered a wide range of topics, from creating compelling ads and copy to measuring campaign success. I felt the number of topics covered throughout the course was appropriate for the number of hours spent in class - it was fast-paced, yet allowed enough time to fully grasp and understand the concepts. 

    I loved receiving real-time feedback from the very knowledgeable and experienced instructor Di, as well as from my classmates. I also enjoyed the in-class exercises, and found the final project to be a valuable culmination of the lessons taught throughout the course. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of Social Media Marketing and the strategy behind developing a successful campaign!

    BrainStation has awesome industry experts, working in that exact field, teaching the courses. I found it really helpful to get not only the practical content but also what it would realistically be like in application. 

    My only concern is that you’re not able to download lecture slides/content, so make sure you take really good notes and/or screen shot where needed so you have the info to reference in the future.

    Shannon Thorndyke is an angel in real life. Coming into the digital marketing course I already had some background knowledge on the core concepts but Shannon filled in all knowledge gaps I had. She is an amazing communicator and makes you feel comfortable asking questions you may not feel comfortable asking elsewhere. She did an amazing job engaging the classroom and starting conversations that I think were beneficial to everyone no matter the experience level. Is Shannon worth the cost of admission? The simple answer is yes. I will recommend her BrainStation class to anyone looking to learn more about digital marketing. She’s helped me feel empowered in my digital skill set in just four days. Excited to put everything learned into action and change directions in my career. She’s representing the BrainStation brand very well. Definitely a keeper. :)

    I was very impressed BrainStation’s part time Product Management course. 

    Andy Woo and Keith Dell were fantastic instructors -- they were always engaging with a vast knowledge of product management, and used real world examples from their workplace or otherwise to explain concepts.  Given that the course was a limited amount of time, I felt that the instructors spent the right amount of time and the concepts that mattered.  

    Our outside of class work was manageable and a great way to solidify content learned in class.  We presented projects to the entire class which was a valuable learning experience.  As all the students came from a variety of workplaces, it was interesting to get feedback from classmates as well. 

    Would highly recommend this course and others at BrainStation to my friends and colleagues.

    Wow! This was so fun and informative. The instructors use the curriculum to guide you through designing a paid campaign for social, step by step. There's so much more to it that Facebok and Instagram. The whole experience was really focused, starting with core marketing principals and then getting into the nitty-gritty of how to segment audiences, write great copy, choose imagery, and budget for the ad on all the different platforms.  It was all reflected really well in the students' final presentations, which were all really on point and well done.

    I just completed the part-time digital marketing course at BrainStation. After months of looking into it, I finally decided to enroll in the course, and I am so glad I did!

    Overall I had an excellent experience from start to finish. BrainStation hires awesome people, their Admin Staff & Program Coordinators were very helpful, answering all the questions I had and following up with me promptly. 

    The instructors were also great. I really enjoyed learning from Scott and Nicholas. Their wealth of knowledge was very applicable and easy to follow. Both were eager to help and happy to support our learning. We covered a lot of material in just five short weeks including SEO, SEM, Social Media, Website Optimization. 

    In addition to this, I met a lot of great people from all walks of life. It was great to bounce ideas off each other and share experiences while learning new skills.

    I took the 2-Day Design Thinking Training at the new BrainStation campus in NYC, and had a wonderful experience! The course was truly collaborative, hands-on, and comprehensive – and the intimate class size and both knowledgeable and approachable instructor made for a really rich learning environment. After the 2-days, I left the training with a comprehensive understanding of design thinking, and was able to apply what I had learned in my day-to-day job. After 8 years in the industry, this was a great opportunity to give my skill set a boost. Would recommend.

    Quick summary

    I attended the Data Science Full-Time program for the Fall 2018 cohort at BrainStation (Toronto) and I had a great experience. Attending this program helped me puruse the career transition I was looking for: chemical engineer to data scientist.

    Program pros/cons

    The highlights for me included:

    • Great teaching staff who motivated the students to learn
    • Relavent course content which was based on what industry professionals use
    • Campus tours/industry speakers that allowed us to gain insights into how Canadian companies are using data in their businesses
    • Working on the capstone project for demo day

    Some criticisms (which were pointed out to the staff after our cohort ended):

    • Pacing for the lectures were imbalanced (some weeks were more heavy than others)
    • A lot of time was spent trouble-shooting issues as opposed to lectures (why doesn't this SQL client work on my OS?)
    • Career support/events (outside of industry speakers/campus tours) were lacking

    Is this program right for you?

    It depends. You could learn data science on your own with the content out there these days but it is a lot of information to learn on your own. At least at BrainStation it is somewhat guided learning that you can use as a basis to continue to grow yourself. For me, I spent usually 10+ hours/week outside of class learning on my own to reinforce the lectures and learn more about computer vision. You have to be a self-starter and be passionate about this field to make that career change.

    Job prospects

    After graduation, most of the interviews I had were with companies that came to Demo Day. Having that personal connection with the recruiters goes a long way in cementing your candidacy at a potential employer. For your projects, I suggest doing something that is interesting and challenging because that how I got people to talk to me.

    I recently finished the 10-week part-time UX Design course at the Toronto campus and I enjoyed every minute of it! If you are looking to gain a better understanding of UX Design and its fundamentals you will enjoy this course.

    The Lead Instructor, Colette Di Bella, and the Teaching Assistant, Chloe Silver, were very knowledgeable, approachable and helped out both inside and outside of the classroom. It was also very interesting to hear both Colette and Chloe’s thoughts and opinions about the UX Design process because of the experience they both hold. Learning about the different websites and applications they use was also a great insight to have when going through my own project.  

    When I began this course, I wanted to learn more about the design process and the tools used within UX Design. I can confidently say that this course has helped me develop a better understanding of these 2 things. I learned how to use Moqups, POP, and InVision as well as how to go through the iterative design process. During class time, the mini group work sessions were really helpful because of the ability to talk problems through in a team environment and the chance to hear others thoughts and opinions.

    I enjoyed being able to work on a project and go through the process first hand, which in return, helped me gain a better understanding of what UX Designers do. I very much liked seeing my project come together starting as just an idea and ending with a working prototype. Thank you BrainStation for allowing me the opportunity to further my education.

    I attended the 5-week product management course with BrainStation and had high expectations from all the positive feedback I had heard... and I can honestly say that they far exceeded anything I could have hoped for in the course.

    The instructors were industry veterans who had a passion for teaching.  They also made every effort to help their lessons apply to students success regarding finding jobs in the field, getting the necessary experience, etc... The curriculum was also exquisite, and it was clear to see that BrainStation believes in constantly improving their courses based on feedback.

    I really enjoyed my product management class at Brainstation. It helped to formalize my learnings on digital products. The instructors were awesome, they always made time for questions and provided real-life scenarios to the theory they were teaching. The class curriculum was great, there was a formal learning session and hands-on class group activity to apply the learnings to follow. The activities were fun, and I got to work with a network of people from different industries. It was a great experience, and I leant a lot from my instructors and my classmates.

    Brainstation continues to be an excellent experience!

    I previously enrolled in the Data Analytics course in late 2018 and had a great time with the instructors (Lindsay & Ahmad). I followed it up with the Data Science course that I have just completed, to further my skills. This course was a pretty decent jump from the analytics one as it dives into programming and statistics a little. The course covers all the basics of python and goes as far as to touch on modeling via regression and other means. It does move very quickly and you do need to stay on top of it as it is easy to get lost. The instructors were very knowledgeable with real industry experience and applications. Brainstation and these two courses have given me the foundation to pivot my career into Data Science! Would definitely consider a full-time program in the future!

    The digital marketing course offered by BrainStation was an excellent generalized overview of the industry. The course gave insights into many aspects that go into creating a successful digital experience for a brand/company. The instructors were amazing, helpful and truly made the subject matter interesting! They helped accompany the syllabus with experiences from their own careers within the industry.

    I recently took the part-time Web Development program in Vancouver. Before starting the course, I did not know how to build a single element of the website even though I was studying coding online. I was looking for a school that offers hands-on project and supportive instructors to strengthen my overall skills, and BrainStation was the one I found.

    Instructors, who are currently working in the Tech industry, taught me up-to-date skills of the latest software trends and coding tips. I especially liked there were always two instructors in the class so I could ask questions as much as I wanted. Also, BrainStation supported me to take the course by providing a scholarship and an ambassador program. If someone has a great passion in Tech industry, but the price is the biggest concern, I recommend talking to the staff. They are really helpful.

    After taking the course, now I can use different industry tools (Atom, Visual Studio Code, and Chrome Developer Tools), the basic understanding of HTML&CSS, and apply them to build a responsive website. Overall, it was a great experience to study at BrainStation!

    I took digital marketing at BrainStation as a way to introduce myself to the digital world, something I hadn't touched at my previous company but was extremely important at my new one.  It was a great way to learn broadly about topics ranging from social to SEO to website and everything in between.  The teachers are great and the content is relevant. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to dip their toes in the digital marketing world or diversify their digital knowledge.

    I attended the Data Analytics course, 4 days In-Class in Vancouver, and I’m absolutely satisfied, both by the content and the teaching method.

    The curriculum is quite large (Database 101, in-depth SQL and Tableau, Excel advanced), and the pace is relatively high, but we were able to not only learn about each individual topic/software but also use them all at once for our final project. The In-Class version of this course offers a lot of interaction with classmates and our teacher, in a very positive atmosphere. Our teacher was very knowledgeable and really engaged individually with each participants, creating a strong learning dynamic. Although I was quite tired at the end of the course, I felt that we accomplished a lot, and the final project gave me the confidence that I am well equipped to apply those skills in real life.

    I would recommend this course to everyone willing to develop the technical aspect of business analytics as those skills can be quickly applied and make a difference in our day to day professional life. It’s definitely worth the time/money investment.

    It has been 2 years since I graduated Brainstation's Full TIme Web Development program and I can say definitevely after 2 years that it was a mistake to attend. I was able to get a part time job based on the Career support they provided but ultimately was told by the employer that it was never going to be a full time role. From there, I did a heavy amount of job hunting, but companies don't have a lot of respect for Brainstation graduates it turns out. I was told there was a big difference between Brainstation grads and grads from schools like Lighthouse Labs, and it led me to talking to other graduates from other Brainstation cohorts and realizing that many other grads were in my situation. We evenstarted a group called BS education to help eachother and we now have over 40 graduates all of which have had a tough time getting jobs and needing to take more courses to become more employable. 

    The curriculum at the time seemed to lack of a lot of depth and just touch on topics. The teachers are actually great, and I know grads of other programs of theirs have done quite well, but at this point the web development program is known as a weaker curriculum than almost any other one. 

    I chose to write this review because I saw that BS came out with an job report and while the 88% rate they boast for the program sounds great, it includes people getting jobs that have nothing to do with development and part time jobs as well. I didn't appreciate what I felt was misinformation and so decided to write a review on here after hearing that this is where a lot of bootcamp students make the choice of joining.

    Hi Hannah, 

    Thanks for sharing your review of BrainStation, we appreciate the feedback.  

    As you mentioned, every year we release a BrainStation Outcomes Report, which is a review of employment outcomes for our full-time graduates. While the 88 percent graduate employment rate for Web Development is based on all industries of employment, we also include the employment rate within the relevant field of study, which is 85% for our full-time Web Development program. In the interest of transparency we also have an Outcomes Report Data & Methodology page which we urge potential new students to read. 

    We’re happy to hear that the career support did help you find part-time work, however we understand that our students priority is to find full-time positions. This is why we’ve created our Career support program, offering students the opportunity to take part in mock interviews, network with industry professionals, and present their portfolio to our corporate hiring partners at Demo Day. 

    Please feel free to reach out to the Toronto Student Experience team at contact@brainstation.io for more information on how we can offer you continued career support.

    I took the four day accelerated User Experience course at Brainstation NYC, and came away impresed by the knowledge and practical experience I gained in that short period of time. Eduardo was an experienced and engaging instructor, and I appreciated how the curriculum balanced conveying theoretical concepts and helping us develop real skills by introducing us to industry tools and applying them to a capstone project.

    The campus itself occupies a gorgeous space in Soho, and the support and onboarding teams were incredibly friendly and responsive to our needs. Coming into the program with a background in business, I'm excited to put my experience to work right away as I spec and design the MVP for a new venture.

Thanks!
