    Great framework for making the switch to UX

    I had done a lot of research before taking this bootcamp and am glad that it seems to have paid off so far. I truly believe that you get out of any bootcamp what you put in, and I ensured that I did extra activities before starting the bootcamp to make the most out of it. The instructors were great, approachable and provided relevant industry experience. The pacing of the bootcamp was great but could have included a few more industry examples/speakers to apply the learnings.

    Life-changing Experience

    I would say this was probably the hardest thing I have done in a while but certainly the most fulfilling. The bootcamp really provides you with the fundamentals you need to succeed in the real world.

    Brain Station - UX Design

    I completed the Brain Station Course in the New York location, I am very happy with the knowledge I am able to take away from this course. From the beautifully decorated loaction to my amazing instructors Erin and Emma to the 5 star hot chocolate! One factor to understand is that you have to do your own homework once you leave, the tools for success are certainly there regardless. Very happy with my time at Brain Station! Thank you so much.

    Manage yourself well

    It was good.  I think my main criticism is that there didn't seem to be much oversight; instructors didn't care whether I did the homework or not.  That's natural in an online environment; it's on you, the student, to hold yourself accountable and manage your own learning.  I tried hard to keep up with it but ultimately fell behind.  I think I would have done better if I had budgeted time to do the homework earlier, and reach out to the instructors for help.

    It's not just the COURSE, it's the NETWORK!

    I selected BrainSation Data Science Bootcamp because I enjoyed working with Data, Machine Learning and AI. I visited the Vancouver campus and I enjoyed the vibe here. I chose BrainStation for a few reasons:
    - In-person
    - The instructors like Borna G. and Fallyn J. have deep technical backgrounds in Data Science, patience and passion for teaching. The TA, Aarati, had a Ph.D. in Engineering and was a student from past cohorts.
    - Many students in my cohort have years of working exp...

    Great introduction to Product Management

    I really enjoyed this course, and the instructors were awesome. They really devoted a lot of time to discussion of the topics and provided real world examples. The other students in my class were also really insightful about their own experiences and this contributed to to the healthy learning environment. 

    A downside to this is that we didn't have time to cover all of the material, so I would suggest to the instructors to plan the courses a bit better to accommodate time for both...

    Great learning experience!

    The educators at BrainStation have been phenomenal. The whole learning experience from start to finish, has been amazing. 

    I started this bootcamp with zero knowledge about any lang/framework, and I would say I have a pretty good grasp of it now (even though I still have a lot to learn). This 3 month bootcamp is very intense but I did find it very manageable with the help from the education team. They're very supportive, knowledgeable, and genuinely are there to see you succeed wh...

    Invaluable knowledge, unmatched elsewhere

    Starting over at 41 has been quite daunting. I have had my eye on Brainstation for months and finally made taking a certification there possible. I am so happy I did because I learned more in ten months than I did in college. The instructor answered any questions we had along the way and he gave real-time, industry examples. I'm so grateful to Brainstation for showing me that starting over isn't as scary as I thought. I cannot wait to take more courses!
