    I have just finished the 10 week Digital Marketing course at BrainStation, and I'm really happy with what I have learned. I wanted to take the course to further deepen my knowledge in digital marketing (notably through social media) as I had been playing around with my own online business. This course made me realize that there are so many layers to a proper digital marketing strategy, and learning from educators that work in the field was so valuable to me. 

    My favourite thing about the course was to be able to have amazing teachers - ones that were always open to communication and to help whenever we needed. We were constantly able to ask questions and create discussions from there, also we were always connected through slack (everyone was very responsive). I have now a larger network of people that are interested in similar things, and I have already done some additional digital marketing work for Toronto based companies. 

    I would recommend this course to anyone that needs a refresher or basic knowledge on how to build a digital marketing strategy! I look forward to keeping in touch with the people I have met and keeping a relationship with BrainStation (as they always have amazing events).

    I have completed their Product Management, Data Analytics, Data Science and Web Development Courses and must say it has has been terrific experience. 

    - 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

    Overall, I highly recommend anyone to pursue a course at BrainStation to gain a new skill and embrace 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.

    The Bootcamp I took was in person and the class size was just right - about 15 students. I loved that it was a diverse group - not only in age and ethnicities - but all different career backgrounds! Some people had never done any type of work like this and by the time we got to the final projects absolutely everyone had a grasp on all of the concepts we went over in class and how to apply them to their project - it was very inspiring to see. The teachers, Jenna and Kirsten were always available not only during class but at any time on our slack channel. I truly appreciated their energy and passion for teaching and working with us on our projects. It was great to hear real-life examples of issues we may run into when working in a UX role and how we can use what we have learned to make good decisions for the business we work with. I look forward to continuing learning with BrainStation and attending industry events they have. I have taken a few other courses in-person in  NYC area and this was by far the best experience.

    I have taken 2 courses at Brainstation:
    - the UX Design course (part time) on the Toronto campus
    - the UI Design course (part time) online.
    With only 30 hours of class each, these classes will give you enough knowledge and practice to learn how to learn everything on your own !

    The first course allowed me to do a complete career change, I switched to a UX role  right after the course and after 1 year, I was confident enough to quit my job and work as a freelancer. I always found jobs easily and was able to apply the skills I learned in my day-to-day work.
    I was happy to come back to school for the UI course because it was complementary from what I had learned previously and because I trust their education process.

    Brainstation is focussed on delivering a maximum value to student in a minimal time, their courses are focussed on practical exercises, and their content is always up-to-date with the latest industry trends.

    I would recommend these courses to anyone interested in working as a UX/UI designer

    (* however, I think the class on campus adds a lot more value than the online class, because of all the interactions we get with other students and the teacher)

    I love the process of lifetime learning.  Website design, marketing and now data analytics courses over the last few years have made me an alumnus at BrainStation. I never set out to be a specialist in any one of these certificates, however, as a generalist I knew I needed to keep learning, but with a full-time job, it was difficult to find the right kind of environment. BrainStation has fit the bill perfectly. Part-time classes made it easy to attend after work once a week. The Toronto Campus/Quantum Coffee, Slack channels and Zoom gave me all the tools I needed.

    The instructors have all been fantastic - each one of them worked in the field and have practical & theoretical experience in the subject matter. They are great teachers and made the concepts very approachable. Having support during class but also on Slack provides all of the group and 1:1 needed.

    BrainStation campus staff guided me along a learning path that fit with my professional life and made it possible to learn and grow. This has allowed me to move professionally in a direction in which I could add value differently to my organization. 

    I  recommend BrainStation to all of my personal and professional relationships.  I am very supportive of this innovative environment that helps lifelong learning in a non-traditional role.

    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. 

Thanks!
