    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.

    I recently took the 4-day intensive course online for Data Analytics and overall was quite happy with the experience. I found the instructor/s were knowledable about the course content and were able to customize the lesson based on what our group wanted extra learning from.

    The curriculm itself was good, but I think the organization of the information could have been better - we covered basic rules of data presentations toward the end when I really felt like we should have covered that at the beginning before diving into SQL, Tableau, and Advanced Excel. That said it served as a bit of a brain break (for me anyway). The datasets we used in practice were real and I appreciated that we were given time to explore those datasets to query meaningful data from them. When you sign up they give you a pre-course assignment to get your brain in the right headspace for the class and I felt well supported by the staff and instructors before and during the course. I have access to the materials for at least 6 months afterward so if I want to run more practice on the datasets, I can noodle. Brainstation also offers discounts for alumni for future course offerings and scholarships.


    My only complaint is I wish they had given us a list of software to download ahead of time for the online course - luckily I have permissions to download onto my work computer but I could see this could be an issue with other students in future. That said, we had online access to a MySQL so we could get started without downloading soaftware.


    Overall, I loved the course and feel confident in my ability to apply these skills in my current position today and for future job opportunities.

    Are you happy you made the switch?

     

    My answer: Yes to all of the above.

     

    -------------------------------------------

    Who am I? I’m an artist turned designer. I took this course because I felt a plateau in my previous career as background artist in TV animation.

    Bootcamps are tough--not for the lazy or faint of heart. There is no way I could have learned all of that on my own, and guess what? There’s more to learn after the program. That’s understood for every good career, and that’s how you avoid plateaus. Honestly, the program is a blend of Product Management, UX, and UI. Brainstation sets you up with a strong foundation in strategy and design thinking. My only critique is that we did not get to collaborate with the full-time web development students and do proper dev-hand off, which is such a vital part of UI.

    After the program, I got a few offers, a lot of rejections, and some “not looking now, maybe later” responses. Teddy Prosser, the career advisor, has been a tremendous help and is the reason why I have my current job in UX/UI. He has exceeded my expectations and has been a tremendous resource of support. Contrastingly, my career advisor from art school has not accepted my LinkedIn connection requests. At a school where I received top marks and was included in the top graduate showcase, I was just a number. The small class sizes at Brainstation allow for individualized attention. Teddy continued to check up on my job performance, asked if I was looking for more opportunities, and offered suggestions for my portfolio. He didn’t have to do all of this, but he did, and I am so thankful.

    Those who have a creative visual background like me had an easier time with UI, and it’s a huge plus. There’s a growing demand for it in Vancouver, and there are not a lot of UX only positions anymore. If you don’t come from a creative background but are passionate about design, keep working on it--it takes time, practice, and patience. In the ups and downs, always know that you will have support from your fellow alumni. Sometimes you just need that one “yes,” and if you put in the work and have a good mindset, you’ll get to where you want to be.

    I wrapped up a 5 week Digital Marketing course at BrainStation at the end of August. I was truly impressed. In 5 weeks (two evenings a week), we touched on every aspect of digital marketing that you would want to know in today's day and age. I took the course as a compliment to a recent career move. I felt like I didn't have the information I needed when sitting in meetings listening to metrics or campaign strategies. BrainStation gave me the tools I needed to understand the basics of digital marketing, and then the curiosity to go learn a bit more on my own. I will say that the format of two evenings a week does make for a very busy week - I might recommend the 10 week once a week format. The instructors were top notch and the most valuable part of the course came from their own anecdotes and experiences. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking to navigate digital marketing for their own start up business venture or if you simply want to be more well versed in your current role.

    Attending BrainStation was a wonderful experience. I learned the basics of digital marketing, how and when they would be useful to me. I am the owner of a small business, and now realize that with this knowledge I can hire specialists in the field and understand what is required of them. 

    I now feel more confident to proceed with understanding the role of my website, its content and SEO. I am now able to interpret the google analytics with insight. I have a clearer vision for my business's social media, paid social and email marketing. 

    I hope to continue learning with BrainStation. I enjoyed my classes, teachers and class mates. Thank you for this opportunity. I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs a general overview of digital marketing possibilities.

    Having been an entrepreneur for almost a decade I have learned a lot along the way, but I needed to sharpen my skills and looked at Brain Station and enjoyed how supportive they were right from the start. I was apprehensive that the course would be an overview of the details but was pleasantly surprised that they dove into the finer areas of digital marketing but not so data-driven that it was over your head. The class taught me all the tools within a short amount of time, and the interaction with other students and industry-focused instructors was extremely valuable. I'm already looking forward to taking another course.

    Last week I completed the 10-week part-time Digital Marketing Course at BrainStation Toronto and it was a great experience. I'm really happy I took the course and recommend it to anyone looking to gain core digital skills.

    The lead instructor, Sarah, was a great teacher - knowledgeable, experienced, and a clear communicator who often related the course content back to her real life marketing job, which was helpful in better understanding the material. It was also helpful to have a co-instructor (Sameer) in the course - both were supportive and always had helpful advice. 

    I especially enjoyed working on the final project - a digital marketing strategy for an existing brand - and applying everything we learned, seeing it all come together, and getting immediate feedback from the instructors.

    And the Toronto campus is a great learning environment in the heart of the tech hub.

    I’m very happy to say I’ve just completed the accelerated format User Experience Design course at Vancouver’s BrainStation. I attended through a scholarship appointment as a Brand Ambassador. I’m very happy with how it went - the instructor was in industry,  and had knowledge about freelance, enterprise, and start-up culture - the students were in industry as well, the loft style studio campus was a great place to chill and work, and the content answered all my questions! Even if you already know about UX it’s a great chance to double down. Being in a formal classroom environment is a great way to gain confidence! I would recommend this to friends!

    I took the SEO/SEM/Analytics Course this Spring at Brain Station in Toronto Ontario. The overall experience was excellent. I was in a position in my job role where I needed to deepen my skills in SEO/SEM and in reporting on Google Analytics. This course provided me with the skills I needed. They also had so many flexible options for taking this class which could cater to those in school, with a full time job, or even those with a family. The instructors of this course were very helpful and really had a grasp on the course and GA and Google AdWords platforms.

    I recently completed the Digital Marketing course and had a really positive experience. Jordan was a great instructor, and often sent us additional articles to review to get us ready for or add-to what we would be learning in class. The guest teachers were also really helpful - I really valued learning from people that were experts in their field. Now, this course is a 10 week part time thing - so know that some topics are bigger than can reasonably be covered in that time. Be prepared to do some additional research on your own, but again that is what the instructors and guest instructors will prepare you for. As someone without a traditional marketing background but that is reasonably savvy about the digital landscape, I did just fine and took away a lot of great information from this course.

    "Amazing Experience"

    BrainStation's Full Time Full Stack Web Development Program was an incredible experience that helped my skills as a developer grow exponentially.

    Prior to attending this course, I had spent eight months self-teaching myself basic web development skills. I decided to take the full stack web development course to build a stronger foundation in web development and increase my confidence in my skills. After having finished this course, I can honestly say that I have achieved these goals and so much more. I learned more from the 10 weeks I had spent attending this course than I did from months of self-teaching. I attribute this success to Jonathan, the lead instructor and the two teaching assistants Nic and Anthony.

    Jonathan is an incredibly motivating and inspiring educator that brings out the best in his students. His enthusiasm for web development and technology makes learning from him so easy. The material Jonathan decided to include in the curriculum was well thought out as we covered technologies that are the most recent and relevant in the tech industry. I feel that this has given us a competitive advantage in the job market.

    Along with his remarkable teaching ability, Jonathan fostered an environment where we as a class were given many opportunities to learn with each other, as well as pursue our own passions. Through this, I have learned and became friends with some incredible individuals. I also learned more about the joys of being a developer and what ultimately drives me creatively. These outcomes are invaluable.

    Finally, Jonathan and the teaching assistants, Nic and Anthony were invested and committed to the students' success throughout the entire program. They have always been approachable and offered support and motivation when any of us were going through difficult times. This meant a lot to us. There were many times in the past 10 weeks where they would stay in during lunch time to help students or answer our questions after hours and during the weekends. While they always were willing to lend a hand, they would never explicitly tell us the answers to our questions because that is not the most optimal way to learn. They know that being a successful web developer entails being able to critically think and problem solve as we will not be spoon fed while working in the field.

    Overall, BrainStation's Full-Time Full Stack Web Development program blew me away. I have become a much better programmer and I have created meaningful friendships along the way. 
    I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to improve their skills as a developer, whether they are new or experienced. This program is much about what you put into it. This program is not for people who are selfish, close-minded and/or expect to have their hand held. If you put in the effort to be in class on time, work with others and study on your own time this program will be a positive experience for you. With the proper mindset, in combination with Jonathan as your lead educator, you are in a great position to be successful.

I took the UI Design Course, which taught  best practices on responsive web design. We looked at industry trends, the design process, desinging in Sketch, prototyping in Invision, trends in animation, and passing on files to developers.

    I decided to take the Digital Marketing course at Brainstation because because while I had a peripheral understanding of all things digital - I really wanted to enhance my skills. I thought the combination of the weekly lecture and the self directed learning resources the instructors provided really helped the information to stick in my brain long term. The instructors were very knowledgable and engaging. It made taking this course at my busiest time of year worth it. I've already applied my new knowledge to my day to day work environment and am really thankful I chose Brainstation.

    I recently completed the SEO/SEM course. I enrolled in order to further my business' presence online, simply because I couldn't afford to hire someone to do it. Immediately after the first week I began to see tangible benefits of the course. Improved page rank, and in turn, traffic to my site.

    I think this course would be great for anyone looking to up their SEO/SEM game.. but especially beneficial to those who have their own website they need to promote. Being able to complete each lesson using my own website and content meant an immediate return, which kept me excited for each new lesson.

    I did the fall/winter 2017 session of the SEO/SEM course. It challenged me to have a completely new perspective on the topics. The teachers were able to really engage with students one on one in the 'activity' time, which was particularily useful as they encouraged everyone to work on their personal projects. As a blogger, I found the SEO tools extremely useful and am currently working to implement all this new knowledge into my website!

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to 'up their game' in SEO and SEM. The Brainstation community is one I am proud to be a part of.

    This is a 10 week course designd for novice to intermediate data scientists. Each week is dedicated to a specific tool or theory. There is a lot of material to cover and quite frequently we ended up not being able to cover everything, whether it was the material itself or the in class exercises.

    In terms of the material though, it was very informative for me, especially learning about the Tableau tool. I wish there was more than one class to learn how to use it as we only had a brief overview of what it could do. We also touched upon Excel and SQL. At the end of the course, each student either on their own or with a group does a presentation on a set of data that they found interesting, using the tools and theories learned in the previous 9 weeks. 

    I think the course is a bit expensive. I've taken continuing education courses at various colleges and universities, and while this one has more of a cool startup environment, it's also more than twice the price of any of the 10 week courses that I've taken in the past.

    I would recommend this course to anyone that has an interest in data science. There is actually a data science course at Brainstation that builds on the material from here.

    I took the iOS development course at Brainstation and it was a very interesting and informative experience. We covered the fundamentals of swift and also worked in Xcode. It’s was pretty content heavy and it was easy to fall behind especially with such a condensed schedule and as a result some content felt a bit rushed. But the instructors were always there to help out along the way when complications arose. 

    In the end I was able to take away a newfound knowledge of swift basics in addition to the process behind how iOS apps are built.

    Hi Jaleesa, 

    Thank you for your review, we're so glad that you found the iOS Development course informative. 

    We recommend that a student has familiarity with object-oriented programming before taking the iOS Development certificate course so that they can stay on-track with the topics covered. The iOS certificate course covers some more advanced topics in development, and is definitely challenging to ensure students are gaining industry-relevant, applicable skills.

    We're happy to hear that you found our Instructors helpful and that you finished the course with newfound knowledge of Swift fundamentals.

    I took the part time Product Management course to learn how agile teams really thrive. Having previously completed the full time UX program at BS I found quite a bit of overlap in curriculum. This is great to confirm my understanding of the material or for new students to get their feet wet. However I was looking for more in depth content. I can appreciate this is a 10 week 3h/week course and they can only go so far in depth for these areas. I suggest this course to anyone looking to peek inside the world of product management before pursuing a career in it. Also if you have a product you would like to pitch to VCs this course will prepare you to execute a proper delivery.

    Taking the UI Design Program at BrainStation is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. User Interface is a great way to get started in the digital design industry. In the beginning, I had very little to no knowledge about designing websites, but by the end of it all, I have come to putting together robust, high-fidelity webpages and prototypes from scratch. A few classes into the cohort, I learned how to use applications like ‘Sketch’ professionally and efficiently, which by the way, is a heaven-sent application used by web designers all over the world! I also learned a handful of techniques to effectively create wire frames, which is one of many processes to starting digital projects! 
     
    The User Interface educator, Kelsey Bowman, is nothing short of amazing. Kelsey engages all of her students, she puts everyone in first hand industry situations and demonstrates effective ways to tackle different circumstances. We were constantly challenged with suggestions and constructive critique which would essentially prepare us for the industry. She is a great educator.
     
    My first impression of the campus was delightful, I was there for one of the workshops they were hosting and I thought that the space was so simple in such a beautiful way. So don’t get me started with BrainStation’s campus… It is the definition of aesthetic. The vibe that the space resonates is simply inspiring, it makes me want to do what I’m doing! Not only that, but getting to BrainStation is super convenient! It is a huge plus for me that the location is only a short walk right off the Granville and Waterfront Stations.
     
    The student community at BrainStation is very well knit. I mostly got to know and work with the students in my cohort, but there are more than enough opportunities to meet and connect with all the students of the other courses. In addition, BrainStation encourages everyone to communicate at all times, in the beginning of my cohort, I was invited to an awesome group chat via Slack App along with all the other students of BrainStation.
     
    Hands down, I would recommend this institute to anyone that is looking to improve their digital skills. Everything from the educators, the campus, to the student community boils down to a perfect score in my opinion. So if you are an individual looking to improve your digital skills, BrainStation is for YOU!

Thanks!
