    Good, not great

    Teachers are really good, friendly, and very helpful. The courses gives you an okay understanding of what a product manager does. However, if you are looking to get into product management without any previous experience it might not be the best idea. The course does not help you with interview prep or skills to the extent where after taking the course you will be able to become a product manager - unless you have previous dev / design experience.

    Excellent and Caring Staff

    BrainStation overall was an amazing experience that really shined through the quality of instructors and staff, and their willingness to help their students. I was very fortunate to receive teachers and the extended career team who cared so much about our success. However I feel the experience could be variable for its students if they were in a different location with a different set of instructors. I feel this could be amended with a stronger curriculum, and a focus on the entirety of ...

    An intensive bootcamps with great community

    I participated in an intensive full-time UX Design bootcamp. For the duration of the 3-month program, we were challenged significantly and had to put our personal lives on hold. The first week was a bit concerning since we were placed into groups and meant to create an app concept in 1 week (a sprint) with little guidance. It turns out that it was meant to challenge us and take us through a mini version of the entire program in 1 week, and we would eventually learn how to do things the r...

    Great way to upskill.

    This course was a great way to upskill yourself if you have some experience, or looking to continue your learning. I found some classmates who had no expertise struggled with MySQL understanding. It is designed for beginners but some of the advanced ideas can be hard to understand. I do wish there was more outside-the-classroom help because there are only 10 classes trying to get answers to a specific question or multiple questions means that you have to wait until that class when you ar...

    Eye opening and Intriguing

    My brainstation experience has been amazing overall. 
    The instructor used everyday examples in discussions to drive the points home. 
    The instructor has been approachable throughout the duration of the course which makes it a bit easier especially when you’re stuck.  He is/was constructive regarding feedback related to projects. I feel  more confident going out into the tech world after my course.

    Informative

    It was very informative and educational. As somebody who is fresh in tech, it was the exact course I needed. Although the course was for ten weeks, I managed to learn the basics of everything.

    I appreciated the pace of this class and how insightful it was. I enjoyed connected with like-minded individuals from different backgrounds, including the instructors. I would like to have had more industry knowledge or advice on how to break into the market. Apart from that, I thoroughly enjoyed this course.

    Great Online UX Bootcamp

    I had a great experience learning at BrainStation. It has a comprehensive curriculum and the educators & TA's were engaging and supportive throughout the whole process. 
    It started out slow in the first 2 weeks, but quickly became rigorous with many hands-on projects that built up my skills quickly. There were lectures as well as workshops during class, and on top of that, you'll work on a relevant project for every unit, and a final capstone project. There w...

    Great experience, helpful pivot!

    Great experience! I wanted to start on a design path, put all my creative skills to work! There's a lot to cover in such a short time, you'll definitely need to keep finding resources to learn more, but the classes were very helpful in building fundamental knowledge. I'm more confident now, though I know there's a lot of hard work ahead. I really enjoy the actual UX work, so I'm pretty excited to continue. Great instructors, patient and happy to answer any questions you have. I'd recomme...
