    Greatest experience ever!

    Came into BrainStation as a recent high school graduate. First thing i noticed was the absolutely incredible teaching staff! Ernie was the greatest and most patient teacher ever and taught the material In a way everyone was able to understand. All of the other teachers and Teaching assistants were just as helpful! Whether we needed help with an issue we had on a project or just to help you and provide moral support, they were always there when we needed. The best part of the whole progra...

    BrainStation changed my attitude towards online education

    The amount of care, professionalism, and dedication you will get from the teaching team at BrainStation is absolutely unique. Everyone is contributing to students' professional and career success from the beginning and is genuinely interested for students to achieve their goals.
    The diploma program is very demanding so it will suit only people who are serious about their career transformation as well as can dedicate the needed time and focus. It's a very intense bootcamp but it is ver...

    Web Development Bootcamp

    Excellent Program if you are planning to do the work. Everything you learn is useful, some of the content seemed out of date or not useful, UNTIL YOU GET INTO THE INDUSTRY. As soon as I got a job out of school I realized how relevant all the content actually is. You need to put in the work to understand the content and be able to use. If you put in the work I can tell you that you will shine at the new company and quickly move up the ranks. I personally have.

    The instructors and experience made this bootcamp worth it

    Firstly,  If you’re looking to get a diploma from a non-tradition institution in a short time, this bootcamp is it.

    This is an intensive 3-month bootcamp that requires more than 60 hours a week, so only join when you’re prepared to commit. A lot of work, time, and effort need to be put in. Don’t come in expecting to get an easy diploma. Emphasize again because it’s important: you won’t have a life for 3 months if you want to produce good work.

    The curriculum gets updated ve...

    UX Design

    I really enjoyed my course in User Experience Design with BrainStation. I found my new passion and felt that I learned a LOT in twelve weeks! The instructor and TA’s were very helpful and empathetic with everyone. The students were great and everybody helped each other. 

    Unfortunately, breaking into the industry is very difficult and frustrating with companies wanting 2-3 year's experience for entry level positions. BrainStation has an intense career success program but it would be ...

    Product Management

    The BrainStation Product Management course greatly surpassed my expectations. It was the perfect combination of lectures balanced with group work, and I really enjoyed both the main instructor and the assistant instructor. They were engaging and helped us learn all of the content! It was also great to meet so many new people coming from different backgrounds to learn the same material - I really enjoyed that aspect!

    Online UX Design Fulltime Diploma

    This program will give you as much as you give it. I went in here prepared to dedicate 12 weeks of my life to nothing but studying, and learning. If you put in the effort, the instructors, TA's, and support staff will help you along the entire way. 

    I came into this program without any real baseline knowledge, but the amount of skills I've learned in the last 12 weeks have really prepared me for a career in UX. I'm a lot more knowledgable and confident in this field than I ever im...

    Worth every bit of the investment.

    BrainStation was one of the best decisions I made when I was looking to transition from hospitality into a design career. It isn't for everyone, so I would recommend a few things to keep in mind that I'll list below, but if you were wondering if it's worth the money to invest in this Bootcamp with the hopes that you will find employment at the end, you can't really do much better.

    BrainStation Review

    Overall BrainStation was an incredible experience, all instructors and staff were fantastic, supportive and kind. There was clear direction during the entire process, and the all resources were clearly laid out and readily available. The learning environment was engaging and had ample content, one thing that could have been improved was some parts of the curriculum which could have had more emphasis and focus.

    Web Development

    BrainStations web development bootcamp changed my career trajectory entirely. A year ago I was a disgruntled employee at a major Canadian oil company. Now I’m working as an Account Manager in the heart of San Fran tech. I wouldn’t be where I am without the content I learned at BrainStation. Mind you I never intended to be a web developer, I always wanted to work in a customer facing role in tech. But what the web development bootcamp turned me into is the most technically capable member ...

    UX Diploma Bootcamp

    BrainStation's UX Diploma program is very challenging but one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. You will laugh, cry, lose sleep, celebrate and see a whole new side of yourself as a new and talented designer capable of producing amazing work. The content is rich and taught well by industry professionals and leaders in the field. I highly recommend this program to anybody looking to jump head first into the fast-paced world of tech and UX design.
