    Change of career

    I enrolled in the WDI of GA because I wanted to learn how to create websites. In the 3 months I was with them, the instructor taught us everything we needed to know and more. GA does a spectacular job of providing support to its students and creating a fun and lively ambience for students to learn. I highly recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn web development.

    Reignited my passion

    I've worked in the digital industry for 15 years but was feeling a bit flat. I finally had the headspace (after having 2 kids) to start thinking about my career again and wanted to fill in the gaps and get up to speed.

    That was my intention... but what happened exceeded expectations.

    I had used the 'tools of the trade' before, and had even freelanced as a UX designer. But this course gave me a better understanding of the WHY, and HOW to...

    Product Manager

    A well run course, pitched primarily at the entry level for Digital Product Managers.  The presenter did a great job of presenting the key principles in a fresh and lively manner and illustrated many key points with some real world examples.  The class members were energetic, fun and made solid contributions to learning for everyone.  Final, group project added an extra dimension to learning and it was practical and fun.  A great way for me to get a refresh on some key Product Management p...

    WDI in NYC

    I took WDI from March to June of 2015. I previously had a job in community relations, but felt uninspired by my day-to-day (I just hated it). I tried out some free resources on Codecademy and applied to several bootcamps. After checking a few out, I liked the campus and curriculum at General Assembly the best.

    About two years later - no regrets. I love programming, and GA gave me what I needed to do this as a career! My teachers were fantastic, passionate, and gifted with coding ...

    Will give you a good set of skills to start your data analyst career

    I took the Data Analytics part-time course in London. The program consists of learning the process of data analysis and practical skills to perform data analysis.

     

    Nowadays for online business, marketing & data analysis tend to become a one-person job as campaigns can be optimised in real time based on their performances. This program gives you a set of skills that aren't taught at the university if you studied broad subjects like marketing or business.

    Part-time Data Science at GA

    The Data Science course at GA was excellent!

    As anyone who has any prior knowlege of the field would expect, the curriculium is quite broad, and as a result the part-time course does not go in depth in any areas, but rather takes you through the basics in as many areas as it can in 10 weeks. I imagine the full-time course would provide a more conclusive education, but i can't really comment on that.

    Even though I would not recommend the part-time course to people lookin...

    Gave me confidence in lifelong learning

    I started this learning journey because I encountered many problems during my self-study process. During my self-study, I faced many setbacks, which made me very insecure. The learning process at GA not only provided me with new knowledge, but more importantly, the instructors were very willing to encourage students to learn. They would patiently answer questions, whether technical or conceptual, and sincerely shared their experience and knowledge with everyone. I am especially grateful ...

    AVOID. Instructors and TAs knew nothing, terrible support.

    Started the Software Engineering Full Time Bootcamp. Encountered some issues in week 1 getting my necessary packages installed. Wasted several hours with the instructor and TAs who couldn't solve the issues. Eventually I was able to fix them but at this point was so far behind in the class work and had zero confidence in the quality of instruction. The instructor was not helpful, and the TAs were former students of the same program who finished within the last year and I assume couldn't ...
