    The Digital Marketing certificate was an excellent introduction into the world of Marketing and Digital Marketing. I had very little experience coming in, and it really is designed for people without a background in the field or who need to brush up on older marketing strategies/need a refresh. While it moves at a very quick pace, I felt that it covered everything that I needed to get my feet wet and prepared for at least some baseline marketing knowledge in my next role.

    This experience literally changed my life! Wyncode gave me so much structure and knowledge, as well as a great support team. The extra help you get outside classroom hours is unreal, everybody is willing to help, without making you feel like you should already know that, and with a limitless amount of patience. If you put the extra time and work, you will definitely be rewarded. A little word of advice: you should practice coding for a while before you start the bootcamp: I had no knowledge in coding (background in education), and although I have learned a lot in these past 10 weeks, there were many times I felt lost and would think "I wish I would have practiced this a little before starting this course". So if you are thinking about giving it a try, I strongly encourage you to do so, but I also belive that practicing some coding before you start will make a huge difference in you learning experience.

    I came into the course with a good understanding of basic Python programming and Data Science Algorithms from a few online courses.  I was looking for the opportunity to sit down with an experienced Data Scientist for hours, to gain some practical problem solving and technical experience. 

    Jeremy was the Data Scientist teaching the course at the time, and he was terrific! He took great care and providing top-tier education. The most significant benefit from the class was watching Jeremy's workflow in solving common and other uncommon Data Science problems. These observations set a very high standard of quality in my work and helped me further my studies in DS via my self-studies after the course (always be learning). 

    The second largest benefit from the course was the network that I built in the class of fellow Data enthusiasts in Toronto.  I have remained close with my classmate as we all transitioned into Data Science roles in industry. Support each other when needed. 

    After the program, I transitioned from a job as a client services consultant to a Data Analyst and had to increase my annual salary by 20k (quickly making up for the cost of the course in the first year).

    Brainstation has some amazing programs and some not so amazing programs.

     

    Unfortunately CoureReport does not do a great job of distinguishing which sections of Brainstation are A+ 

    and which parts are C- at best.  I can tell you, without a doubt, that Courereports was instrumental

    in my making the decision to go to Brainstation.  Boy Was I Wrong !

     

    As stated earlier, whereas some programs at Brainstation are truly exceptional, other programs

    are truly works of amateur art and in need of severe assistance.  The instructors, if you look closely, 

    who started these new sections had no teaching experience but where told by the new owners to

    make a program.  Those instructors are no longer found herein, and you find brand new instructors

    who very clearly state that this is their latest version of the program, as if though you are a guinea pig.

     

    The class sizes here vary widely from term to term.  The summer session you can have twice the number of students than in Winter session.  You cant help but think to yourself, my God these people have no idea what the hell they're doing.  How in Gods name did I get here ?

     

    As good as CourseReports professes to be, it does the students a distinct dis-favor by not itemizing the 

    items on the menu and assuming that the Kung Pao chicken is as good as the Burger offered.  

    If a school limits itself to only one program, then the ratings would be accurate.  If the school

    has multiple programs and you have one rating system for all those programs, then the

    review system is fundamentally and profoundly flawed.

     

    Yes, absolutely, Brainstation is fabulous for some programs and total absolute rank amateurs for their others,

    and the applicant would be gravely mistaken to think a 5 Star rating for one of their programs equals 5 Star

    for every program under the same roof.  They could not be more wrong.

     

    Course Reports attempts to guide the students, but by not clearly advising on the various different

    programs under the same roof, it is profoundly misleading the students to believe the quality

    is consistent all around for all programs under the same roof.  That would be a fatal flaw.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate your feedback on CourseReport’s rating system. Because the site only allows for overall rankings, we always recommend that you reach out to one of our Learning Advisors who can share more details about the course curriculum. 

    At BrainStation, our Instructors come from some of the best corporations in the world, bringing real-work experience and industry acumen from the field they are teaching. BrainStation instructors work in the discipline they teach every single day. This is important to us because we want to ensure that our students are learning from individuals who have the technical skills and industry knowledge that you need to succeed in a role in that field. Our courses are constantly updated to ensure that our students are learning the latest and most relevant industry skills, technologies, and trends. 

    Please reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that a member of our Student Experience Team can help improve what appears to be a negative experience.

    Jo Juha & PK & Austin and whole team are awesome, you really are part of the family and they look out for you regardless of programming or life background. 

    The way the bootcamp is designed is awesome too, it really makes you not only challenge to learn coding but also to display your talents with projects so you can be proud of your skills. 

    The only thing I'll say though is that programming isn't for everybody. I barely survived the bootcamp and was always behind and seeking help of the TA's(who were also awesome) and others, and now even though I'm getting some job attention I am scared of being so underqualified and still am reviewing my stuff. I think out of my batch half of gotten dev jobs through wyncode circle. I feel embarassed to call myself a full-stack developer when I can't finish a rails app without help or hours of googling. The bootcamp after week 2 is intense. I'll see where the job hunt leads and hopefully through that can get more experience. Overall I recommend it, but it may be a smart idea to delve more into programming on your own then join it and if you're a slow learner then get a feel for it before taking the full leap.

    I think my time at Wyncode was interesting. Our cohort did not entirely get along. No one wanted to participate in socials and no one really keeps in touch. It was just a weird time.

    Overall, I thought that the curriculum was fine, and they did their best to prepare us for interviews after Wyncode.

    My biggest disapointment  is that I needed money to start paying back my loan, so I never got to actually use my new dev skills. It almost feels like a waste of money.

    Hi there,
    I just wanted to briefly address your concerns:

    I am sorry that the cohort you were in did not mesh socially in the way that many of the classes here do during their time in the Wyncode program. We have high admissions requirements and we try to carefully curate our classes to try to make sure that everyone will get along and work well together, but that's nearly impossible to guarantee. 

    Also, most Wyncoders find that it’s more than a cohort, it becomes a lifelong network of friends and colleagues that can help to grow within the same tech ecosystem. We are sorry that you didn’t feel that way. Sometimes one personality might just not mix in with the group. That said, our doors are always open for lifetime job support and networking and all 600+ grads are available to you via Slack; along with teaching assistants and our instructors are here to help you get plugged into groups that are part of the tech/development area here in South Florida.

    We want you to be able to utilize the skills you learned at Wyncode, so please come by and get reconnected with our Director of Hiring Partnerships and Wynwork team, so that we can help get you going in the right direction with regard to finding work that does encompass the type of development that you want to do and are capable of doing. 

    As always, please feel free to come by the campus, connect via Slack or give us a call anytime. We hope to see you again soon and help get you on track to working as a developer.

    I attended BrainStation for the full time web development course in the Summer 2017 cohort.

    Overall, I have nothing but great things to say about the course, its instructors and the people I met throughout my ten weeks there. I personally had dabbled in development before taking the course (not web), and I certainly still found the course challenging and fulfilling. From my own experience and from others, I believe that to get the most out of the WDFT course, you should have at least some beginner understanding of programming/logic/development. The course moves very fast, and concepts and content get stacked upon itself very quickly as the final weeks close in.

    I believe that what you learn in those 10 weeks would be the equivalent of a self-taught learner spending 4-5x longer on the same content. Also bear in mind that upon completion, you earn a certification, have more networking opportunities, and have an up-to-date record on what technologies are being used at that very moment (as frameworks, languages and services become deprecated rapidly, all the time).

    I recently completed Brainstation's Digital Marketing (part-time) program this summer, and was pleased with the learnings I took away from the course. Coming from a Communications background, and having dug a little into digital in my own spare time, this program was a great refresher about the general scope of digital marketing - from SEO/SEM, social media best practices, Google Analytics/Adwords, content creation, and generating ad campaigns. That being said, if you're looking for a deeper dive into SEO/SEM, I would recommend looking into their SEO-specific program as what's touched on in the DIgital Marketing course is very high level.

    Beyond the course material, Brainstation has an unbelievable network of educators that lead their various programs, and I was fortunate to be instructed by Emily and Britt. They were able to integrate their professional experiences into the course material, bringing knowledge from both the corporate and freelance worlds.

    If you don't already follow Brainstation on Instagram (@brainstationyvr), you're quite possibly missing out on one of Vancouver's most aesthetically pleasing interior design spots. Brainstation recently relocated their Vancouver HQ from Yaletown to downtown Vancouver, and so the facility sports fresh white walls, and minimal finishings. It's also within walking distance of a multitude of shops and great lunch spots.

    The Brainstation community is welcoming, and their customer service is on point! If communicating via email, you can expect a response within 24 hours, not to mention follow-up emails to ensure your questions/learning goals (if you've enrolled in a class) are being met.

    In short, if you're looking for a quick refresher on all-things-digital (without diving too deeply into any given area), this is the course for you. And beyond the actual lecture slides and course materials, it's a great place to meet likeminded students/industry professionals. (Make sure to check out their available scholarships too if the course prices are a bit steep for you!)

    I took the full-time web development course and I have had a very bad experience for various reasons:

    1) the teacher is generally ill-prepared for class, and he rushes through concepts without clearly explaining them

    2) When you ask for help, instead of giving a clear answer, the teacher will give you 10% of the answer, tell you to go off and figure it out yourself, and then punish you or asking him a question in your assignment grade which is demoralizing 

    3) There are not very many resources available for students to self-study 

    4) This course has been a huge waste of money and time

    Hi there, 

    We’re sorry to hear that your experience with BrainStation was anything less than excellent. At BrainStation, student feedback is important, which is why we urge students to complete the Instructor feedback forms at multiple intervals throughout the course. This is to ensure that our education team has an indication if they are moving too quickly through topics, and can adapt their pace to student needs. 

    With regards to the pace of the course, our full-time Web Development diploma program is designed to give students the skills they need to step into a role as a junior full-stack developer right after graduation. The program is immersive, covering a great deal of material, and training students so that they can perform as a developer in a workplace environment. Often, these environments require self sufficiency, which is why we encourage our students to do extra practice and work outside of class to really hone their skills. The course is challenging, but we believe that this is the best way to prepare students for the real world. 

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that our team can try to help improve your overall experience.

    Took an accelerated, 4-day full time, product management course and have to say it was relatively disappointing considering the cost. I'd recommend instead to take an online course if you have the discipline.

    Pros:

    • Great instructor: Knowledgeable, friendly, easy to work with.
    • Cool space, unfortunately highly underutilized. 

    Cons:

    • Very pricey: Full price = $2250 or $563/day
    • Curriculum was far too overpacked to do much more than review slides and lecture
    • Little meaningful practice of the content
    • No prep work/homework so lots of time wasted in class
    • No accreditation
    • Lack of attention to details

    If I were to sum up my experience, it was a very expensive 6.5 hours daily, with about 4 hours of that being review of slides in a very rushed fashion. The instructor had to skip some sections of content to keep up.

    The instructor was great, really knowledgeable and did what he could to deliver as much value as possible in the 4 days.

    Unfortunately, the curriculum is far too packed for this format and allows for almost no time to actually practice anything in a meaningful way. Our final projects were very hastily put together with little feedback and definitely not something you would want to add to a portfolio. All we really had time for was reviewing slides, and doing rushed exercises.

    Given that there is no accreditation, I felt my money would have been better spent on a bunch of really good books, an online course and investing some time to meet with other product managers for coffee.

    As a side note, the space, administration and introductions of the course were rather unwelcoming. At one point the school was actually being rented out for a private hair styling event during our course and we were sequestered in our classrooms for a day. Considering the price it seemed there was a general lack of care for students and that it was more of a money grab. I shared most this feedback on our course wrap up, but never heard back.

We encourage our students to reach out to our team with any concerns throughout the duration of the course and try to make changes to accommodate the needs of each student. 

    Don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that our team can try to help improve your overall experience. 

Thanks!
