    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...

    Great Intro

    Great instructions with very positive attitude and energy. There's a lot to learn in 10 weeks but the class activities are fun and you will learn so much with industry-used tools and knowledge.

    UX Design

    I completed the bootcamp over the summer of 2021 and had an extremely enjoyable experience and have since landed my dream role. The entire educator team is extremely knowledgeable and supportive. Their passion for UX is infectious! The coursework and assignments for the first 3 weeks are relatively chill but the intensity ramps up quickly. With that said, the assignments are manageable if you fully utilize in class work periods. I completed this bootcamp while working 10 hours a week.  T...

    Web Developer

    Educators are pretty good, but come off annoyed to be asked questions about what they are teaching. All and all they are good teachers.

    The disappointment is that you can learn all of this much much cheaper. I signed up because the marketing for the career accelerator Program was unreal. “We’ll send your info to 5000+ partners upon graduation.” When I asked about it, I was ignored completely. The career accelerator program is nothing more than moral support as you are bombarded wi...

    UX DESIGN BOOTCAMP

    This bootcamp was challenging and so rewarding. You come out of it with a portfolio and super confident about taking on the industry. If you're truly interested in UX/UI Design, I would highly recommend this bootcamp!

    UX Design

    This is a very thorough Bootcamp where you will learn so much! It starts out a little slow and then really ramps up in terms of workload. Be prepared to block off 2 months completely to work on coursework. I had to decline almost all invites outside of the course because the workload is so heavy. In terms of curriculum, there is a large portion given to user experience research which is valuable knowledge but there is less time given to technical skill learning in softwares such as Figma...

    Is not very good

    Dont go here. They might look fancy, they might sound like they have a good curriculum, they might tell you about all the job support they give. You wont get any one of the three - at least no one from my cohort has. The only thing worth mentioning is the work-like experience that you get when they give you projects to complete - but other schools do it way better.

    Web Development Diploma

    I came onto the course with very little prior experience in web dev, I had touched on html and css. The course is well structured but very fast-paced, given it being a bootcamp that was to be expected! The educators and teaching assistants were very knowledgable and provided plenty of relevant resources for us to refer to. We had a lot of support throughout the course and one-on-one time every day if needed. 

    I wasn't expecting there to be much career support but I was pleasantly ...

    Rich learning experience

    I made the transition into UX from engineering and really thankful that I found the team at Brainstation. The curriculum is intense but equips you with all you need to make the switch into UX. There is support from the educators throughout the program and there is plenty of practical learning experience to be harnessed. The career support is available well after the program ends. Be ready to learn on the fly and take in a lot of material. You will save yourself time by c...

    User Experience Design Diploma

    Even though the class was online our Educators did a really great job of creating an engaging classroom environment. There was able opportunity to meet fellow students during labs. It would have been nice if there was an opportunity built in to have more social interactions and get to know the other students on a smaller scale. Overall though, with the coffee and conversations, group work, industry projects, labs etc there was time to meet other students.

    My experience as a graduate from BrainStation's Data Science online bootcamp surpassed my expectations. 

    First and foremost, I found that the curriculum was well structured and well organized. The educators and teaching assistants always had the time either during class or office hours to address any questions or concerns. With ample amount of time dedicated to applying and practicing the materials in conjunction with project based deliverables; the curriculum provides a robust st...
