    I signed up for the part-time class in NYC.

    They cancelled the class 4 business days before the start date of the class.

    Or as they put it "Unfortunately we've had to delay the start of our part-time courses, and we don't have an official start date posted yet."

    I couldn't sign up with another institution due to the fact that all fall classes had passed their admission deadlines. 

    Didn't receive any type of accommodation for the inconvenience they caused (like a discount on a future course or something of that nature).

    They provided me with a refund but the waste of time and effort, not to mention how unprofessional this was, forced me to write this review.

    Hi there, 

    We appreciate you leaving a review, and apologize that your class was cancelled. This is a very rare occurrence for us and not something that we take lightly. Unfortunately, there are rare instances when this is unavoidable, and our Learning Advisor team always provides a full refund to students, saves a spot in the next cohort if you would still like to take the class, and also offers a Learning Credit for future events, panel discussions, or workshops.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at contact@brainstation.io so that a member of our team can discuss your experience further.

    Social Media Marketing, Part Time, in class. I had a great time here.  About me - I already had experience with FB Ads going into the course, all self taught and from experience.  I run my own business(es).  I was already running FB Ads for my business before starting.  But the stuff you learn here is very useful.  I learned and applied this increasing our ROI on ads.  Significantly.  It's a very practical and straightforward course. Caitlin Hall, my instructor, really knows SMM well and is very effective at teaching it.  I worked with her to improve my marketing strategy, and what she taught me brought real results!

    As a young business person just starting up two businesses, I learned new skills that I applied directly to my e-commerce advertising strategy to drastically improve ROAS.  My ad return was already okay coming into the course, but what I learned here made it work much, much better.  So you don't have to be a complete newbie coming into the course.  Actually, having experience allows you delve deeper and ask the more advanced questions, which Caitlin is more than capable of answering and providing insight for.  
    Expect a practical approach, and not an academic one - they get straight to the practical stuff and don't waste time on rubbish (like memorization of the 4 P's of Marketing).  That's the difference between learning SMM here, and, a university.  Yes, it's an expensive course, but I easily got my ROI from the increase in FB ad revenue.  

    Also I enjoyed being with every one of my classmates.  Pretty much all of them were entrepreneurs!  I got to meet some really interesting people.

    Thanks Brainstation!  A++ review, well deserved.

    - Their instructors are great and knowledgable in their respected fields
    - Their campuses are unique trendy locations which makes learning even more enjoyable
    - Their staff are friendly, helpful and want their students to have the best experience
    - Their online live courses are a game changer having the ability to take a live course with classmates all around the world
    - The BrainStation community is positive environment where you find like minded individuals with a passion for technology and life long learning

    This course taught me how to use Sketch to build a working prototype and publish it on the web using Invision. That's the core value you get out of it so don't expect much else. A lot of the classes were focused on design theory which does help to a certain degree, primarily the discussions around fonts.
    I don't have anything negative to say about except maybe the steep price, $3500 is a lot for a Sketch course.

    I am very glad to have chosen BrainStation as a school to expanded my knowledge and experience in Digital Marketing. I have to confess that in the beginning, I felt a little insecure, which is normal. We never know if we will be able to deliver and meet expectations (from us, and others), especially at difficult times like right now. Through my program at BrainStation, I was able to put all these insecurities aside and focus on my main project, which was to complete a Digital Marketing Strategy for the company I work for. Currently, with all the COVID-19 situation and the requirement for social distancing, it's really hard to keep yourself motivated, especially for a creative mind, and to be open to new learning opportunities. But having Larissa Hildebrandt as my instructor made everything easier! Her support, kindness, and respect throughout the program, her guidance, feedback, and positivity made all the difference. I am really proud to be part of this community and surrounded by such talented people. Thank you again BrainStation for this new challenge and for bringing me hope for our future!

    Great experience and I would definitely go back!

    This was my first class with BrainStation, after being recommended to look at their course offerings by a friend, and I have to say it was well worth it. I decided on this class, as I already work in Marketing but wanted a different perspective on the industry and this course gave me that plus much more. The course focused on core tenants of Product Management (PM) with our Instructor running us through "stand-ups" per class and diving into various PM theories for how to imagine and refine a product idea. All these lessons gave us the tools to deliver a cohesive product-focused final project. Also, BrainStation does a good job of selecting instructors that can provide relevant field experience to really contextualize the course, and help you explore career options if you so choose. I enjoyed the laid back but intellectual/ thought-provoking learning environment BrainStation and my instructor strived to maintain (even through social distancing), and had a great experience overall.

    My experience in Brainstation was great. I've gone from not knowing anything about Web Development, to feel pretty confident with my HTML and CSS abilities. My teacher and teacher's assistant had great industry input and classes were clear and concise. Because of that, I've decided to join the full-time Web Development Diploma.

    Enrolling in the User Experience Course at BrainStation was one of the best decisions I made in 2019. I was thinking about studying UX for ages and, like many folks, I did extensive research and slowly compiled a list of schools. What sold me on BrainStation was the personal attention I received the moment I walked into the information session. It started then and never stopped!

    As a graphic designer and art director, I was already doing some UX, but it was intuitive. I took the class hoping it would formalize my instincts into a structured design process. I also thought it could help me be more effective in my current role as an art director, and help get some side projects off the ground. It did!

    The lead instructor, Jenna Brucoli, was superb. We covered tons of material in 10 weeks, and she led us through this marathon with enthusiasm, encouragement, and great humor. Not only did she give us 110% percent during every class, she also met with many of us individually. Her advice and guidance were invaluable. This is a BrainStation strength—your instructors are industry professionals who are committed teachers willing to share their experiences. 

    I also learned so much from my fellow students. What a fascinating mix of backgrounds and ages! Even after switching from an in-person format to online (because of the COVID-19 pandemic), the collegiality and camaraderie continued. For me, it confirmed that the digital skills taught at BrainStation are the new universal skills every professional should have in their toolset. 

    I can't wait to continue my learning journey with them!

    Being committed to continuous learning,  I like to do thorough research on available options to ensure I invest my time and money efficiently and I'm so glad I decided to take the Data Analytics course (online version) at Brainstation. 

    To be honest, I was a little hesitant in choosing the online class instead of in-person one, but all my doubts went away after the first class. The instructor, Mike Lake is a superb teacher. He's highly experienced, knowledgeable, engaging and patient. He made sure we all got a solid foundation of Excel, SQL, and Tableau by doing tons of hand-on exercises in class. Also, I felt that the curriculum itself was very thought through. 

    I highly recommend the Data Analytics course taught by Mike Lake. :)

    At the end of last year, I took the decision of improving my digital skills and move forward to a new direction on my career path. While I was researching what would be the course that I wanted to take, where would be the place, and how I could be able to study while I was working full-time I had the best luck of founding Brainstation and I was not wrong on choosing them! My learning experience has been extraordinary, my instructors were not only great professionals in the industry but also high-skilled in new trends and tools, always there to answer any questions or doubts and great at encouraging us to learn more and more every day. I love finding professionals who truly love their jobs! My learning experience was A+++ and I am definitely coming back to start a new course. Thank you Brainstation! .3te2m022

    I had an amazing experience during a 10 weeks long Data Analytics course at Brainstation. I decided to go with online learning, and it turned out to be a really good choice because their platform is so well organized that it makes learning and communication with the instructor very easy. And when talking about the instructor, I was extremely satisfied to know that I am learning from an expert in the field, who was able to provide a real-life examples from his work and show us how to use data analytics techniques in everyday decision making.

    Brainstation’s Data Analytics course focus on teaching general data analytics frameworks and data visualization, but also more specific skills like advanced excel, SQL (starting from basic and then moving to more advanced queries), and Tableau. 

    I recommend this course to anyone interested in learning the basics of data analytics, but also to anyone who wants to level up existing data analytics skills.

    I entered this course looking to level up my digital marketing skills, deepen my understanding of some key marketing levers and to (hopefully) make the transition from freelance to in-house. 

    I was a bit nervous looking over the course curriculum in Synapse on week one, but the instructors did an incredible job of using real-life working examples that brought the information to life making it easy to follow. The classes were held virtually via Zoom and were super easy to join and navigate. I would recommend having two monitors for any virtual classes, that way you can ensure you're not missing any info shared in the class Slack channel while watching the presentation on another screen. 

    Each week our knowledge grew and our class discussions became more and more interesting and engaging. The personal highlights for me were the SEO and SEM weeks, our instructor's industry experience made these weeks a real game-changer. 

    By week ten I came out of this class with a steller digital marketing pitch, new skills, a renewed passion for the industry, a bigger network AND a new career. This course helped me land a new job in an industry I've been trying to break into for some time and I can't wait to apply my new skills on day one. 

    Shout out to BrainStation for a steller team and overall really great learning experience!

    The digital marketing course at Brainstation was great! It was all encompassing and the instructors had great industry examples to complement the course material. It felt like a lot in the beginning but it really came together in the final project.

    Seeing the final project come together and using all the knowledge we learned was a great experience - it really felt like I was creating a pitch deck for a digital agency. 

    The only thing that I felt could be improved was the group project selection process. I'm lucky that I got matched with a really smart and eager group but I've heard of other groups having difficulties with team dynamics.

    All in all, I'm feeling very confident coming out of this course that I can use my new knowledge in the workplace.

Thanks!
