    I attended General Assembly's Software Engineering Immersive remote program in January of 2021. Overall, it was a very positive experience for me! 

    Even though it was remote, my cohort was "New York-based" so we operated on Eastern Time and most of the instructors were from the East coast. I was told that the New York cohorts are unique because they use a different instructor for each of the 4 units. Other cohorts apparently usually have 2 co-instructors that switch off and each teaches 2 units. This was both a pro and a con sometimes for me because the program is 12 weeks long and the units are only 3 weeks each. Just when you get comfortable with the instructor's teaching style, you are whisked away into the next unit with a new instructor. This can be a positive if you don't really like a particular instructor or are struggling with the teaching style, but it can also be negative since it can be jarring to switch up so quickly. 

    Overall, the program is intense! I'm sure you've read many other reviews that say this because it's true! It can definitely get overwhelming, especially if you have little-to-no experience with coding/programming before entering the program. You can easily bet on having 10+ hour days at least 5 days/week. What's nice is that you usually get a little bit of a break during the weekend because Friday's homework USUALLY isn't due until Sunday of that week, so you can take a weekend day off if you need/want. 

    Ultimately, you get what you put into the program. I mentioned before that it can be very overwhelming to learn new languages in general, but especially if you don't have any background coding experience/exposure. That being said, there were quite a few of my classmates that had very little prior experience with coding that did extremely well. If you're hungry to learn and truly invest yourself in this bootcamp, I believe you will have a positive experience. This is definitely not an easy program, you will have to put in the work, but if you do, it will be worth it! 

    About job support: each cohort has a dedicated career coach which you meet with (as a group) multiple times throughout the program. Your career coach creates interactive presentations on various topics regarding the job search such as: building your personal brand, tips for your portfolio website, etc. If you qualify for Outcomes (which is GA's program for job-seekers), you are given additional support such as more meetings/workshops with your career coach and additional slack channels for job seekers where jobs are posted multiple times per day, often from companies who have hired GA grads before. 

    I had a very positive experience with GA's Software Engineering Immersive program and truly believe that anyone from any background can be successful if you work hard, stay positive, and keep a growth mindset.

    I graduated from General Assembly Software Engineer Immersive Program in January 2021. 
    It was a wild ride and I loved every second of it. I didn’t have any prior programming experience, so I got to make an extra effort in order to catch up with the cohort. 

    I am extremely grateful for our amazing instructional team and all of the collaboration with my fellow classmates. GA provides after-hours support, short one-on-one sessions on Saturday’s and a bunch of different educational materials besides the regular lectures. 

    Be ready to spend at least 6-8 months before you’ll land your first job. As for me, it's been only 3 months since I've graduated and I’m not even close to it.  The payment program is helpful through and it is nice to know that I don't have to pay anything back until I am employed full time.

    The course provides a really good foundation for what Product Management is, and how it varies in organisations of different sizes and stages of growth.  It explains the basics of complex frameworks, and gives you the opportunity to put them into practice in your own mock product discovery project- all in a whirlwind 5 days

    For a long time, I tittered on whether or not to go back to school to pursue UX Design. During my research for which schools, I spoke with a few UX designers and product managers that said they typically hire from General Assembly and have always been pleased with their hire. Once I started, the curriculum was so clear and the instructors were amazing--truly cared about our success. Furthermore, our cohort had access to a career coach who through it all helped us gear up for our career change. I can't say enough positive things about GA!

     I took the GA UX Design Immersive course to pivot into UX from healthcare. From someone that didn't know what to expect when investing (yes, because it is an investment) in the course, I felt as if I left the program with a good foundation of what UX was and enough skills to feel confident in continuing my stride to get my foot in the door at an Austin based company. 
     
    At the time I thought the curriculum was okay. Over a year later, I now work for GA and I have seen a tremendous improvement in the way they are teaching students and supporting students post-graduation. The new curriculum really allows students to start using design tools on day 1 of the program (a big change). The lessons are more in-depth and the instructors are encouraged to be open and speak about real-life experiences. Also, students are given portfolio reviews by industry professionals (super valuable, I wish I had that coming out of my cohort).

    Overall, I know that GA isn’t perfect, but I appreciate the fact that they are always moving forward to make sure that they are giving their students an experience that mimics the real UX world.

    I took the User Experience Design immersive course (Remote) in 2020. The course overall was a great introduction to what UX/UI meant and how to apply it in the workforce. As someone that did not come from a tech or design background, this was very helpful and I never personally found myself blocked or falling behind because of my lack of experience. It really is an entry point! The instructional staff was always there to answer questions, provide examples or review my work. There is an Outcomes person that works with you on interview/resume/overall job hunt prep as well. While this person does not provide job/intern placement, they really do put the tools in your hands to get out there and succeed! I wish we had more time with them but the time we did have was valuable. The cohort I was in had around 20 people (give or take a few) and with two lead instructors and two instructional assistants, there was always someone to talk to. If by some chance they were all busy or it was after hours they always would set up a 1 on 1 the next day or answer as soon as they could in slack.

    One negative thing I will say is that because it was online, time zones were kind of a struggle for group projects or student communications. It was not the end of the world for east coast people but some of my west coast cohort mates were a bit thrown. Of course with anything, price matters. I personally was able to use the Vemo education plan so that was a huge help and a deciding factor in me selecting GA.  

    Overall it was a positive experience and I would recommend the course I took to others that were interested in the field.

    It took me a long time to decide on a bootcamp. I was over 40 and had been out of school for a while, and wanted to make a major career change. It was going to be a major investment of time and money and I needed to be confident in my choice. The UXDI program at General Assembly delivered on all of its promises and more. The application process and pre-work really helped me shift into a growth mindset and set me up well fr success in the classroom after years away. I also benefitted from the Catalyst program, which let me defer course payments until after I had graduated AND landed work in the field.  It was an intense experience and took determination and hard work, but instructors and career coaches and staff were beside us every step of the way to help keep us on track. Two years later, I have all the UX work I can handle, I'm earning almost 60% more than in my previous position, and still have time to volunteer my design skills with local nonprofits that are important to me. Plus I've met some of the best, coolest people on the planet! Do your research, for sure - I did. But I am really pleased with what I was able to accomplish through General Assembly. Highest recommendation.

    For several years, I had been feeling like I was wasting my potential in my job when I got the idea to try some online coding classes. I practiced first on Codecademy for free, before enrolling on General Assembly's online front-end web development course. My instructors in Sydney were fantastic and I was so sad when it ended that I signed up right away for a full-time, three-month bootcamp in London to learn full-stack Software Engineering. This was a huge financial risk because I had to leave my job, but it was worth every penny! 

    I got to build a portfolio of projects using the most employable technologies right now (eg. React, Django, Node), which I could show to potential employers and clients. I was a bit nervous to do the course remotely, but GA has been doing this since long before the pandemic and the whole team was well prepared to answer questions and support me every step of the way. I am finally excited about my career again and hopeful for the future.

    Thirteen-week full-time instructor-led course covering the coding (Python-based) and statistics and probability foundations for exploratory data analysis, visualization, feature engineering/selection, and model building.  The course covers models ranging from linear and logistic regression, to time-series forecasting, natural language processing, neural networks, and Bayesian systems.  In addition to interactive lectures and two substantial homework assignments each week, students complete six projects using real-world data. You will not be bored.

    I was very impressed by both the content and the pacing of this course. I was thankfully able to take the course due to a local scholarship, and I found it to be very practical while balancing a work schedule. The content was more in-depth than I expected, and provided a solid foundation that makes it easier to continue learning once the course is completed. While the pacing is fast during classes, having only 2 classes a week allows for individual practice later on; I don't think I would have gotten as much out of the course if it had not included the amount of content that it did. Instructors are friendly, flexible, and there are numerous options for office hours. The office hours are where I was really able to solidify my learning. For this course I would recommend that you have a second monitor, it was difficult to complete the later stages of the course without one, but it was not impossible. Since the course is available across the USA it's important to consider time zones as well (the class was help 9-11PM, Monday and Wednesday for me.) Again this was challenging but I believe it was worth it. For anyone looking for a structured way to upskill while working full time, this class is a very good option. 

    The background provided in this course will give you the ability to learn more on your own, which I have done. If the program was longer, I would have liked to learn window functions as part of the SQL unit.  While I now have some projects in my portfolio, I still do not feel like I know enough to apply for jobs--five years ago it would have been different, but the job market is difficult right now due to COVID. I have heard the immersive courses at GA also have support for resume building, interview practice etc, but I'm not able to afford that at this time.
