    Life Changing Transition

    My experience with GA was amazing! My instructors were all incredibly knowledgable, welcoming, and always available for my cohort. I was able to grasp the skills within the 3 months and the projects helped to build my portfolio that would later help me land a job. The teaching style was moderately fast paced but having helpful instructors that were always fine answering questions or slowing down when needed was great to have. My career coach was also very helpful in my development into t...

    Overall Experience:
    I can't say enough good things about this bootcamp. From day one, I knew I was in for an experience that would not only challenge me but also shape my future in tech.

    Instructors:

    Awesome Learning Experience!

    I embarked on my journey through a career talk on campus, and numerous key aspects defined my experience at the General Assembly.

    The learning experience was intense, but it transformed me from someone with no prior background into a successful mid-career switcher today.

    The instructional team consistently strives to incorporate the latest technology, and the career coaches have been exceptionally helpful from the very beginning of my job search journey. There was a big poo...

    Fun with friends

    Overall, I had a wonderful time participating in the online program. I got the chance to get to know a wide range of people who had like interests, and we developed enduring connections. I learned a lot throughout the program, and it considerably increased my skill set. I genuinely think the investment I made was justified.

    Inspiring, rewarding, challenging

    I had a brilliant experience undertaking the General Assembly course as a career changer. I wasn't sure what to expect and if I would be able to keep up the pace but the instructor team were fantastic at supporting me and go above and beyond to keep me on track. The career team was also fantastic and provided some excellent resources for job hunting

    Best self-investment possible

    I recently completed the GA SEI program and it was the best decision I’ve made for myself in my life. My lead instructor Dan was the most knowledgeable and skilled teacher I’ve ever had, and made this experience not only doable but enjoyable. I couldn’t have asked for a better team leading us through the unknown. On to the job search I go, with confidence and skills I know will lend me my dream job!

    Worth it

    I had many doubts before investing half of my savings in GA data analytics BootCamp a year ago, but now everything around me proves that was the right decision to make. Before that I already had diverse educational backgrounds across TAFE and university programs - none of them yields more outcomes than this 3-month journey. At the time of joining GA in May, 2022, I was unemployed in the aftermath of COVID as a migrant living alone in Australia. Now is June 2023, I'm working as an IT prof...

    ReDiscovering Capabilities

    Went into the bootcamp rather nervous, but it turned out that the environment was such a safe space to make mistakes and learn. Students weren’t afraid to ask questions/clarify, which allowed them to gain confidence in their new skillsets. This is especially helpful for those who are doing a major career change and have a case of imposter syndome or self doubt.

    Kudos to the instructors and teaching assistance for their patience.

    Great learning experience

    I absolutely loved my time with General Assembly and their Software Engineering Immersive. It was a full-time online course over three months. The instructor I had at the time, Michael Lackey, was absolutely fantastic in his explanations and guidance. He could be overbearing but because of that, those of us who made it through the course all agreed that it greatly helped to develop our coding skills, learning ability, critical thinking, and teamwork mentality.

    Challenging but Fun!

    I took the UX Immersive bootcamp in January 2023 and had a blast. It is definitely not for people who are not ready to work hard, because you need to be ready to put in a lot of hours of work if you want to get the most out of the course. Our instructor Nick Anderson was amazing and I could not recommend it enough.
