    It’s been 8 months since I graduated from BrainStation full-time UX design bootcamp. It was an amazing experience which turned me to a designer as I wished. I’m now a UI/UX designer in a development agency and having fun. I got the job offer in week 9 - big shoutout to my instructor Brad who helped me with the performance check during the interview process as well as my TA Uzair who helped refurbish my resume and cover letter completely.

    A bit of my background: Before joining the program, I was working as a 3D artist in a VR studio, then quit coz it’s crap. Then I was home tutoring high-school kids for half a year, then stopped coz it’s frustrating (I was making good money out of it but not my thing). I wanted to be a designer doing some cool shit, but never had a job opportunity to get started. I sent my resume and portfolio to a bunch of companies in Vancouver, got responses, got tests, got interviews, but never got the position. I realized leaving the industry for a couple of months (when I was tutoring) made my sense dull and skills rusty - I need a place where I could sharpen everything again and get my thunder back.

    I’m gonna share some reasons I joined BrainStation and how the results ended up. If you have a similar situation and consider whether to join the program or not, my story may help you.

    I’m a layman. I need a place to teach me both practices and theories. I tried counting on myself to learn the skillset and toolkit of UX design, but it was frustrating coz I literally didn’t know where to start! To learn software first? Or read books? Or do a small project? UX is such a giant shit blackhole and could almost suck everything in: business analysis, research, information architecture, UI design, interaction design, visual design, content writing, or even front-end if you wanna be entitled as ‘full-stack designer’ (fascinating) - whatever you can possibly associate with product development. Yeah UX design is such a sugarcoated beast, sounds high-end, easy-going, user-friendly, but in reality quite intimidating and could bite your head off - if you dive in blindly without fair guidance. As a 3D modeler before, I did know Adobe Suite, but in terms of the current tools of UI/UX design such as Sketch, InVision, Principle, etc., I’m a total outsider. Fortunately, during the pre-course, I learned the essentials of Sketch and InVision from the step-by-step tutorials; then throughout the next 10 weeks, I was improving my hard skills considerably by working on the weekly homework and capstone project. The instructor and TA would teach us tips every now and then to quicken our speed of work. As for theories, I did know user-centered design and some relevant approaches such as user stories, usability testing, but they were too scattered in my mind and never systematically came into shape as a ‘UX tree’ or ‘UX umbrella’. What BrainStation does is breaking down the whole UX topic to 10 smaller ones - each topic per week. Each week we focused on one topic and did homework around it to deepen our understanding. Meanwhile, we could update our capstone project by adopting the new stuff learned this week. The weekly basis is fast indeed, even crazy (using one week to investigate UI design, are you kidding, that’s even a job title!), but come on, this is a bootcamp and we only have 10 weeks. This curriculum is brilliant in my opinion (and PPT is well-done): it takes care of all epics of UX design such as research, IA, UI design, etc. - which should be mastered more or less as a UX-er; but in reality, we could (and should) leverage our advantages and choose to specialize in one or a few directions. Taking myself as an example, I’m more interested and better at visual stuff than research, IA or business whatever, so I actually put more weight on the chapters of UI and visual design but honestly much less on certain sections (I got 55/100 once in one of my assignments, shame… ).

    I’m lazy. Yes if nobody pulls me up, I could stay in bed for whole day. I tried saving money and studied on my own - and wonderfully, I slept in till 11 am, opened my laptop reluctantly, and lost morale in one hour. You know what’s so good after I joined the program? I COULDN’T SLACK OFF! Yeah I was busy like shit: class from 9 to 5, homework stacking up, capstone project crying for feed, workshops awaiting, portfolio pending - gosh, don’t ever underestimate ‘FULL-TIME’ training (this is not a joke). Frankly, the workload is immense - I was working in the evening, during the weekend, sometimes burning night oil. It’s not only because I myself wanted to work harder, but once I saw my classmates working their asses off, how could I sit still and enjoy the couch potato time? Most importantly, we paid to learn, so the only way not wasting the money is - work hard!! It’s painstaking, but it will pay off. Everyone in my cohort was progressing so much - I’ve seen people who made stunning interfaces in the end even having zero design background at the very beginning.  

    I’m an introvert. I bet you all know socializing is as important as swimming when you’re in the job-hunting vortex. Sadly, I’m afraid of socializing and terrible at selling stuff. ESL is a reason but it’s more about my personality. I desperately needed a community at that moment where I could find a comfort zone with like-minded people. And yes BrainStation is like that for me. Amazingly, our cohort had 12 folks, and we teamed up differently for multiple projects, so everyone had a chance to work with each other. Every Friday, we went to a bar to grab beers after class. At the night of graduation, we barbecued and sang karaoke like a bunch of weirdos! People are professional at school but could be so wild afterward! The instructors are also super approaching (yeah they joined our beer too) and other staff are quite helpful (just ask them if you need a favor.) Besides, we have tech-talks, workshops, and presentations every week, so don’t worry, you’ll be pushed under the spotlight and try your best to entertain the audience! In summary, if you’re like me, not good at networking, then at least you will have your cohort and the staff, which will become your own community and, it’s still growing.

    Last but not least, I bet the tuition is a big concern to most of us and I admit it’s not a small amount indeed. I was jobless and broke from the moment I gave up on tutoring, so yeah I thought about this a lot. So I tried two options to make it less unaffordable: firstly, applying for the scholarship. Do ask the staff what kind of scholarship you are eligible for; secondly, there’s an installment option to pay off the debt in 12 months (and I chose this). Good news is you can use the tuition for tax return, yeah! And once you land on a new job after graduation, I suppose you won’t mind this educational investment. (The common salary of junior UI/UX designer in BC is 40k-50k)

    In conclusion, this was my happiest training experience, maybe because I finally found what I like to do. I hope my story could help you in any way. Good luck and keep it up!

    Taking the User Experience Design program is probably one of my highlights in 2019. I had the chance to develop the mindset of a UX designer, improve on my UI design skills and most importantly, I learned to expand my industrial connection, which includes all of the wonderful people at BrainStation. 12 weeks of intense workload along with many sleepless nights, I graduated BrainStation, more passionated and motivated than ever.

    If you're reading this review and still wondering whether you should take the program or not, listen to me and go for it. Consider it as a wise investment for your future if you're interested in the creative industry.

    I’ve taken 3 courses at Brainstation (UX, Product Management and Digital Marketing) I loved them all. First of all, Slack is the main communication tool which you get to learn how to use and it is really beneficial for the professional work life. There’s usually 2 instructors, as one of them teaches the other one takes down notes and shares the highlighted info and important links on Slack. I was a beginner in the tech world when I took these courses and I noticed that instructors tried their best to arrange the phase of the classes quite well to be able to teach everyone at all levels. Hands on projects are really fun to work on. Most importantly, network! You do not only get to meet brilliant people from different industries in the class, but you also have a life time access to BrainStation’s network which supports its students as much as possible! I took Digital Marketing course as an online live course which saved me so much time on commuting and provided me with the comfort level of travelling and attending the classes across the world. Pls do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions

    The BrainStation UX Diploma was an incredibly refreshing experience for me. The community is really welcoming and you are treated as a professional from the moment you walk in. The extremely supportive instructors and my peers were a definite highlight. They all put in the effort to make sure that you are challenging yourself to put out the best work even under pressure. Everyone encounters stress and frustration at some point but all the support gets you through it.

    I entered with a bit of basic graphic design and marketing knowledge but rest assured that even if you come in knowing nothing, you will be able to pick it up as long as you're willing to put in the effort as I have seen in myself and my peers. Regardless of experience, it is important to come into this program hungry (figuratively only - please eat your breakfast). Be present and willing to learn every day. Accept that you're not going to get everything right away, but always keep trying. You will touch on a lot of topics relevant to the industry, but curiosity for additional exploration is how you'll get to master it. You will have to put in hours after classes, but it's well worth to craft something that you will walk away and be proud of.

    My advice for applicants is to start gathering inspiration from the world around you: Take note of colours that speak to you and interesting interactions you encounter on existing products or even out in the actual world. Bringing that into class will give you a stronger sense of direction when you're starting to come up with ideas and help to relieve some of the stress.

    The UX diploma program was an amazing 12-week journey with lots of challenges, support, and fun along the way. I've learnt so much from our educators, peers, and mentors. The mentorship was definitely a highlight! It’s a very pleasant experience connecting with mentors who are alumni of BrainStation. They speak from their personal experience as UX designers as well as offer helpful industry insights.

    Expect to put in extra hours outside of regular school hours to work on your projects and career development. I'd suggest looking into networking opportunities in addition to the career workshops to get to know more about the industry and build your network.

    The web development program at BrainStation is simply great! The 12-week program is very intense and fast paced and I think it is designed in a way that different people with different backgrounds can benefit from it. Of course what you get from the program depends on your previous knowledge and skills, but what is true for everyone is that they can learn at their full capacity of learning. Throughout the program I thought to myself several times “I couldn’t be learning more!”, and at the end of the program, when I was working on my final project, I was amazed myself by the skills that I’d acquired, especially since I had almost no background knowledge of programming when I entered the program.

     

    These are the highlights of this program for me:

     

    • The skills I’ve gained: I’ve learnt fundamentals of  HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Node, Git, and SQL. I’ve also learnt about some useful JS libraries such as React, express, sequelize.
    • Career workshops, whiteboarding sessions and the mock interview: these helped me have a general picture of the process of looking for jobs and conducting interviews.
    • Hackathons and group projects that gave me some experience of working in teams.
    • Tech tours and power hour talks, which helped me learn about the real work environment.
    • Helpful and super friendly staff, who supported me and others with their positive energy both during the program and afterwards.

    Taking the UX design course at BrainStation was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Changing careers is never easy, but the diploma program gives you the confidence in your craft that you feel like you can take on any challenge. The instructors were very helpful! Be sure to ask them for any questions, and suggestions, they'll always give you constructive feedback. The curriculum is very short and condensed, so expect lot of work. You will feel stressed, but don't feel discouraged, it's part of your growth. And don't forget to take breaks! Throughout the course of the program, there will be workshops that help you with job hunting. They make sure that your documents and interviewing skills are on point.

    I had a fantastic experience taking the online Data Science course at BrainStation. The classes were engaging, the instructors are friendly and knowledgeable, and the support network is fantastic (everyone, from our instructors, classmates, to our learning experience coordinator to the entire Campus Support team). There was a lot of content, and the pacing was good.

    Data Science & Python required hands-on training, and I felt how the classes were structured provided me with precisely that. The project was also a great tool for me to apply what I've learned: from setting up a Jupyter notebook, to importing data, utilizing Pandas, cleaning data, creating a modelling hypothesis to testing the hypothesis, and plotting data graphs.

    Prior to deciding to take the BrainStation course, I was considering doing either a Coursera or an edX course. I am pleased that I've decided to go with BrainStation, as the engaging, hands-on format is what I needed to learn such a complex subject. I am able to freely ask questions during class, on Slack, and my instructors are very responsive.

    I'd definitely recommend anyone who are looking for great data science courses / certification classes to take the Data Science certificate course with BrainStation! I've also taken the Product Management certificate course with BrainStation in the past and that was also fantastic. i'd recommend anyone who are looking to break into tech, to consider taking classes at BrainStation (online or in-person).

    It took ma almost a year to make my decision to transition into the Data Science field. I visited many institutions but BrainStation appeared to have a well-structured program coupled with an excellent career support team.

    The instructors are very intelligent and supportive. In the beginning, it was a little bit difficult to cope because of the fast pace of the program, but after the 2nd week, I found it very interesting and I became fully immersed in the journey. 

    Here comes BrainStation 3D, a one-day practical experience where you collaborate with the UX and Web Development students to solve real business problems and build a project in 7 hours.  This is one of my best moments at BrainStation.

    Demo day is a day we all love the most, all the students get the chance to showcase their individual project to the public. I was proud of what I was able to achieve after 12 weeks. 

    I'd say you should be well prepared to lose some sleep and you might not have free weekends as well. The program is very intense and requires a lot of dedication from your side, expect some complicated assignment that will help you grow and learn fast.

    I completed the 10-week part-time digital marketing certificate course via online live. 

    I absolutely enjoyed this course taught by Larissa Hildebrandt. 

    Online: I definitely appreciated having this option available to learn from anywhere... esp at home. Even though it's online, the program requires your attendance and for your camera to be on at all times. This definitely kept me accountable and alert during the entire class duration (3 hours with a break). Having the camera on felt weird at first, but I think it adds to the class as it feels like you are sitting with other students even if you aren't. As an introvert, I still felt shy but that went away after the first couple classes. I loved the ability of still being able to work in groups. The platform used is Zoom and it worked flawlessly. The instructor was able to send us into breakout rooms and bring us back when needed. I would highly recommend having a second screen or using zoom on your ipad. I took me a class or so to figure out my set-up but all good. 

    Platforms: The platform used to learn was Synapse. All the Google slides were provided a week prior. It was easy to follow along with the instructor as she was going through the slides. There isn't an option to be able to take notes and I found this a bit difficult to have everything on the screen at once. My solution was noted above-- having zoom on my ipad and using my computer to take notes. The web conferencing platform used was Zoom (described above). The slides are not downloadable and the sessions are not recorded (due to copyright). Slack was used for communication during and between classes. We had a channel just for our group and I found this helpful. 

    Content: The course covered a lot and covered everything that was promised. I have read a lot of different things about digital marketing in the past couple years and I really liked that I can learn all the most current and correct info all-in-one. I feel like the content was very solid and thorough. It has propelled me in the right direction to continue. I usually have lots of questions but I barely had any cause everythng was answered. 

    Instructor: Larissa is a really great instructor! She also works as a digital marketer and it was so helpful that she gave us real-life glimpses into different aspects of digital marketing. She is clearly an expert in her field and was able to give us industry-related expertise. She is very knowledgable and if she didn't have the answer to a question, she always followed up on Slack. There was great follow-up between classes and I felt well supported throughout. After our final project, I received really usefull feedback from Larissa about how to improve on my digital strategy for my business. 

    Overall impression: I would highly recommend this course for anyone who works full-time and would like to propel their career. Being able to take a great course, at home, and being held accountable each week is definitely what I needed to keep me on track.

    I took the 10 week Product Management course via Online Live and it was awesome! The Brainstation team made it easy to learn online and provided the flexibility for me to take this course anywhere, the course material was super relevant to my role and I could implement my learnings at work every day as a product owner. My instructor was super knowledgeable and provided such relevant industry knowledge and expertise. I'd recommend Brainstation for anyone looking to upskill their tech skills or trying to kickstart their career in tech.

    Like me, most of my classmates were looking for a big carrer change. In my case, I looked around at many institution and Brainstation caught my eye not only with they content, but also with their Carrer transformation Program.

    After completing the course, I can resume it like in a few words:

    1) It is a intense program. They overload you with content about everything regarding Data Science

    2) You will loose a few weekend on their projects. You have to deliver assignments over the corse and they do take some effort

    3) You will need to keep studing afer hours to keep up with everything

    In my opinion, those feedbacks mean that the course is worth taking. I don't regret going throught it. Actually I highlly recomend it.

    At the end of the program, there is a final project that we need to present to an audiance. By the time I was presenting it I realized how much I have learn in 3 months and it was mind-blowing.

    Raymond and Lauren (who are amazing instructors by the way - personable, patient, supportive, and they clearly care about their students) led us through a 10-week journey through advanced excel formulas and techniques, SQL, tableau, and data visualizations.  Classes and content were delivered via lectures but plenty of time was allocated during class to understand and practice the concepts using real-world examples.  If you are brand new to the content then it might feel a bit intense but the instructors were always willing to help and support you outside of classroom hours.  
    If you are looking to develop your data analysis and visualization skills with a recognized institution then I highly recommend the Data Analytics course offered at Brain Station.  Hopefully, you end up with Raymond & Lauren as your instructors!

    I am still processing and learning after having completed a 1-week accelerated in-person Product Management course at BrainStation. I am so glad I took it as it was enriching and worth it in ways I didn’t even expect! I mean, who knew I would become so interested in Marketing as a result of taking this course.

    I had had some exposure to Product Management concepts and aspects of it in my work already, but it really made a difference to my confidence and knowledge depth to take the course with other professionals, and taught by an instructor with a long trajectory in both larger well-known tech companies as well as startups. While some of the course was lecture-style, much of it was interactive and hands-on with teamwork and roleplaying with classmates from a variety of roles in small and large organizations (including product managers). I appreciated and learned from these immersive parts the most, as I got to apply the concepts with other team members by building an MVP (minimum viable product) pitch deck for a real-life problem. We even had to present the pitch at two different stages – and got really useful feedback!

    I had some surprise learnings – I gained a deeper understanding and newfound appreciation of marketing, which including an introduction to product marketing. I liked digging deeper into how market research is carried out, why it’s so vital, to understanding a problem space and people's needs, and how it can differ from or overlap with user research. 

    As someone with a rich and diverse professional background, what I most appreciated was BOTH gaining new super-relevant skills AND seeing my existing critical thinking and design thinking abilities from a different perspective. I now better understand how I can leverage and build on these to ask the right kind of questions of users, colleagues and leaders, define problem spaces, make better and faster decisions, and work to build human-centered solutions that improve people’s lives. I loved having other classmates that work in different parts of tech, from a variety of different functions and disciplines. It made the discussions and teamwork even richer, and more applicable to different scenarios that come up in a product management role, or other role where this highly cross-functional skillset is essential! I would recommend this course to both seasoned professionals looking to pivot or enhance their careers or those in earlier stages of their careers.

    It's intense, but it's worth it if you value growth.

    I'll be honest, this course was fast-paced and intense. I moved to Vancouver from Edmonton to take this course, and keeping up with the course content after doing such a big move was incredibly difficult for me. There were so many late nights, and so many times I called my sister to ask for emotional support.

    But, it was all worth it. Whereas I used to feel like an imposter, as an economist trying to shift into the creative industry, I now feel an incredible sense of competency after taking this course.

    Plus, the professors really do care about us. They have good hearts, and they provide a lot of support.

    BrainStation was definitely the right choice for me. I felt as though they gave me excellent support throughout the program - from great instructors to helpful career support The whole staff at BrainStation does a great job of making you feel welcomed into their work environment. 

    The curriculum is fast paced but well rounded. I felt that if I showed up, applied myself during classes and worked diligently on assignments the workload was very manageable. 

    Considering it's only 12 weeks I don't think I could expect anything more from a bootcamp. I feel as though I my career success is in my own hands, as long as I continue working diligently. I definitely couldn't have said that before I went to BrainStation, so overall the course gave me every opportunity to succeed that I could have asked for.

    Mike Lake led us through a comprehensive overview of data analytics in a 10-week, 3-hour/evening web-based learning program covering data analysis, databases, data visualization and data communication skills. He taught with a view to all abilities and gave countless real-life use-case examples which made the lessons easier to engage with. As someone who works in a non-traditional data field (law), I was able to explore how working with datasets can be used to supplement and improve upon the way we communicate information (by using more numbers and visuals in exchange for less text). Especially enjoyed learning the Tableau program. I did find the web-cast format challenging given the difficulty of certain lessons and labs. I would consider trying an in-person learning experience for future courses with BrainStation.

    My instrutor Paul Pittman is very experienced, passionate, and wise. The best part of this course is Paul would share his real-worklife experience on UX design so I would get to taste how this field works. I’ve gotta say taking this course at Brainstation is very different than taking any other courses at institutions because the interactivity and disucssion during class. The problems solving challenges given in the cass keeps my brain running. 

    Taking this course motivates me to use the other side of the brain (which I hardly use) .. I have been in the graphic designer field for very long and all I have been working is transforming information into beautiful graphics. The UX thinking is a new challenge for me because I need to think logically all the time, and need to find out potential problems and solutions on all possible situations that will occur.  

     

    On the last class Paul gave a very good advice  that UX designers need to be a leader who can’t be shy, and have excellent communication. He also inspired us how to introduce UX design into our workplace in a practical ways. In this course, the technical / academic parts of this course is just foundation; however, the thinking and altitude, and character buildling is the key is a life-time learning process.  Hence, this course is a great reminder and a great motivation to move you to the next level.

    The BrainStation family has been a tremendous part of my life in the very short amount of time I had the pleasure of being with them. In mere twelve weeks I went from having no knowledge of web development and programming, to being incredibly confident with HTML, CSS, SASS, JavaScript, React, Node.js, Express, MySQL, and Sequelize, as part of our curriculum. In addition to this official tech stack, my peers and instructors helped me in learning MongoDB, and how to use aspects of the AWS & Heroku cloud infrastructures to deploy my projects.

    I could never have achieved this on my own, and even if I somehow managed to do it, I would have completely missed out on the quality of education and the opportunities that BrainStation afforded me. Because BrainStation does not simply show you how to code — we were tested with whiteboarding sessions twice per week, and completed our assignments in the agile development method - the industry standard. Additionally, we participated in cross-disciplinary hackathons, toured offices of top tech companies in Vancouver, and regularly had them pay visits to our classroom to deliver lectures on their work. We also had regular career planning talks, lectures, etc; and last but certainly not least, we had our Demo Day with dedicated for industry recruiters and the who's who of the tech scene in Vancouver.

    I must admit that before I signed up for BrainStation, I was concerned if it was as good as it sounds. I was especially concerned about the quality of education that I would receive. But as I came to find out: every single person I dealt with during my time at BrainStation, from admissions, to admin, to career support, is nothing but extremely professional and knowledgable about what they are doing. The teaching staff especially blew me away at how fantastic they are at their jobs. I can confidently say that my main instructor at BrainStation is amongst my top 3 teachers/professors I have ever had, and the TAs are better than any TA I have had at UBC.

    I simply cannot recommend the Web Development Diploma Program at BrainStation enough.

    Simply amazing.
    at first, I didn't know which Bootcamp to go to, but after researching I realize that BrainStation offers pretty much best in the field. After this 12 week program, I have learned everything I need, and all the TAs and the educator helped me so much so that I won't fell behind. Career Success sessions also helped me with my resume and storytelling skill. Besides those, there is so many more amazing practice interview questions and many more other. benefits. But one thing I enjoy the most is the atmosphere at BrainStation, everything is so friendly and it made me felt like I was part of a big family. I would wake up every morning wanting to go.
    I would highly recommend BrainStation to everyone out there looking for a Bootcamp to go!

    Fantastic experience!

    When I first found Brainstation, I was for sure a bit skeptical coming from trying different MOOC's, that often seemed lacking. However quickly I began to see the quality of the content, the highly knowledgeable instructors and the ease of use with the Synapse learning portal. I did the online version of the program for the convenience and ended up moving across the country from BC to Toronto during the program and I was still able to keep up and continue my growth during a busy move. The instructors were amazing and went above and beyond to make sure they were putting the students in the best situation to succeed and were always extremely helpful, answering questions regarding the content, the industry and ways to improve. Parin and Nishant were very knowledgeable and a delight to learn from and very accommodating to students of all skill levels. 

    I highly recommend this program and Brainstation in general! Absolutely will be back for more!

    I completed the BrainStation 5-week intensive in Data Science in August/September 2019 through the Toronto campus, and had a fantastic experience. I was entirely new to the world of Data Science, although come from a background in Structural Engineering, so had soe limited experience with Python and data analysis. I was surprised to realize how creative Data Science can be. When combined with an analytical background, creativity can really guide you in this field in terms of how you interpret data, understand human behaviour behind data, and come up with corresponding test models based on this.   

    The instructor was thorough, made time for individual students while also maintaing the schedule. You have to be present for each class as they are live and it is intended that you follow along with the material while interactively coding and analysing on your own screen. I learned a ton! We went through the basics of Python programming first, which was essential for me. I would HIGHLY reccomended completing the Prep Course they provide you with (for free), prior to embarking on your first class, or within your first week. The 5 weeks was certainly intense, and I made time for about 3 hours of "homework" each week. The final project was fun as we got to chose our own data set to work with!

    I recently completed the “User Experience Design Certificate Course” offered by BrainStation, and I really enjoyed it. While there is an option to take the course over an 11-week period, I decided to complete the course in five weeks. The accelerated version is great, but there is quite a bit of material covered in a short period of time. If you feel like you can keep up with the fast pace, it is a good option to consider.

    What I liked most about the course:

    • The online course is live. You have to sign in to the classroom and participate.
    • The class is interactive, so you’re listening to lectures but also applying what you’re learning
    • There are breakout rooms for students to practice interviewing each other, sharing their designs, etc.
    • There is a project component to the course, so you have to apply what you’re learning before you can complete the course

    I do want to mention that:

    • This is an introductory course. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who have a background in UX design.
    • The accelerated version of the class requires people to pick up the concepts and tools we’re using quickly.

    So this was my first time attending an online class. Never have done it before and was assuming it would be easy, in which it was. But that was not my goal to join the course in the first place. I originally signed up for the summer course in the new york offices but to reasons partaking the instructor that was supposed to teach that class it was disbanded. So i was put in a Online class. Another event happened shortly after which was they pushed my online class to late october instead of early october.... It was annoying but nonetheless i still wanted to get the program started. Once it came to be the instructor i had was knowledgble and gav insight industry tips about UX design. By this time I was already self teaching for about 7 months so 80% of the tops that was reviewed i knew about. The other 20% was methods that i didnt quite understand from selfteaching so that was good. Overall it wasnt bad for but it would've been better if i was in an actually classroom with other students next to me. More of a Network mindset i was expecting to have but networking in different regions wasn't for me. I'll recommend anyone to brainstation but the online course, its up to the indiviual if they are suitable for the online courses depending on there life situation.

Thanks!
