    Difficult, Fulfilling, and Life Changing

    This course was worth every penny. I learned so much and grew so much as a developer in this class. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone looking to learn full stack Web Development. The Instructors and TA's are top notch, friendly, and helpful!

There was constant support and help throughout from class mates and instructors to make it feel like one big community. A great atmospjere inside the cohort which promoted positivity and encouraged all members of the class to participate.

    Product Management

    I participated in the remote online Product Management course that spanned the course of 10 weeks. During which I had the opportunity to learn about the product lifecycle, how to conduct user interviews, and how to effectively present my discovery findings. There was also ample time during class to practice what we were learning with other classmates, learning from each others ideas as well as networking with one another. I thought the instructor was knowledgeable, patient, and engaging ...

    UXUI Designer

    Your experience is a hit or miss. Depends on how lucky you are. I was not so lucky but I found a job. That said, I DO NOT recommend GA. Here's why:

    1. Push to know your instructor before paying and LinkedIn research your instructor before starting
    The admissions team said they didn't know who would teach my cohort, I should have delayed paying until I knew. My instructor may be a great designer but had zero corporate experience. He started his own design comp...

    Python Programming (Part-Time)

    The Python course was great! Easy to follow along and the professor was incredibly knowledgeable and skilled at guiding us through the course. It was a lot of material to cover and it only brushes on some topics but I understood it was never meant to be in-depth, which was great for me because it gave me enough grit to get it started and seek out more knowledge on my own. There's definitely a large component of discipline I had to have, being a non-programmer entering this course meant I...

    Data Science

    My experience at GA was extremely positive. I was very impressed with GA's team knowledge, with their way of teaching and how the course was correctly structured and timely-measured. These guys they really know what they are doing and working on. Their resources and availability to help the students to understand re-explaining what as much as needed in order to make sure that the concepts are understood it's something remarkable. If you are looking to give your first-deep-steps in Data S...

    UXDI

    I really enjoyed taking the course and learning so much about UX Design. While I came from a Graphic Design background, the instructors were so thorough and helpful when it came to learning a whole new side of design. Especially for my classmates who maybe had no design/ artsy/ creative backgrounds. It is a lot of work jam packed into a short period, so make sure you don't have a lot of other responsibilities/ priorities. You will occasionally have to pull all nighters to get things done...

    Python Accerlated Course

    Personally, their style didn't work for me. There are slides provided, the instructor briefly reads through them and then splits us into groups to work. They encouraged us to google if we got stuck, but I wanted guided instruction. There weren't any back-up instructors available so when our instructor became sick we lost that day of instruction. They tried to do make-up days, but they didn't work for most of the students and only made-up a fraction of the lost instruction. It didn't feel...

    A great kickstart into UI/UX

    I'm based in Singapore and I enrolled into this part time course after seeing this institution being recommended by IMDA Singapore (Sg's Media Development Authority). Prior to this, I just graduated with a Bachelor in Communication Design. However, I'd like to expand my skillset and learn more about UI/UX design so that I'll be able to land a job in this field.  This part time course was held twice a week via Zoom over the period of 3 months.

    Veterans using GI Bill: BEWARE

    I decided to enroll at GA, dropped out of college, did all the hours of prework, got my GI bill approved, and was ready to go. My class moved from in-person to remote pretty early on in the process. About two weeks go by until they finally decide to tell me on the Friday before my class start date that the VA was not going to approve my GI Bill. Highly confused, I call the VA who assures me that the loan will very much be accepted and that the financing people at GA need to submit a form...

    Great Experience But It's Not Easy!

    I had a great experience at GA. My instructors were knowledgable and passionate about what they were teaching and they worked really well together, which led to a positive classroom experience. Bootcamps pack in a lot of information in a short amount of time, so you have to be good at learning things quickly or you might be at risk of falling behind and feeling overwhelmed. Luckily I also had a great group of classmates. We helped each other whenever one of us was stuck on a problem/topi...

    scam

    I took this "boot camp" few years back they accept anyone willing to pay. I took the UX program and my instructors were promoting their DJ stuff and playing favorites(certain females who brownnosed). In my cohort we had a guy who didn't even know how to use a computer. He sold his mechanic shop to apply for this program with a promise of a six figure salary. I looked his profile up on linkedin and saw that he wasn't currently working many years later.
