    General Assembly has right mix of theory and practical

    I'm a mature age, working web dev professional who took a General Assembly Product Management course to brush up on my skills and investigate future career paths.

    I'm currently doing a post-graduate certification in web dev now after not being at university for 25 years, and there's an incredible difference of  learner experience quality between contemporary vocational education and institutional education. (Disclaimer: I have a chunk of experience in corporate adult learning and ...

    Not for beginners

    For someone with no background of product management this course promises that it is recommended for beginners or no background, it also promises that a career help will be given.
    After struggling for the first few weeks I found myself in a bit of a struggle to keep up.
    John and Alex where very good but again to much to cover for someone with no background. 
    As soon as the course was finished I heard nothing from anyone even though it says that a career help can be provided.

    Great Experience!

    I had a great experience attending General Assembly's Software Engineering Immersive. My Instructors were very patient and understanding, even without any previous knowledge. I saw many people make full-stack apps after having little or no experience coding. The course load is very demanding, as you will be on camera 9 - 5 every day and have 4 hours or more of homework. Although it is a lot of work, the instructors were great at guiding us. The course will not teaching you everything, an...

    Professional academic training.

    It was an excellent experience for first time online coding bootcamp, instructors were so professionals and helpful. They used their knowledge and experience to lead and guid all students equally.
    For me as non native English speaker (intermediate English level) was a bit hard for me to catch up every thing at the beginning and the course leaders were so patient by repeating and explaining more deeply.
    General Assembly is a professional team academy 100%.

    Data Analytics with Prasanth Thangavel

    Prasanth was the bomb! Super consistent, patient, and supportive.  There was so much information stuffed into 10 weeks, and he helped adjust the pace of the course as time went on. Additionally, I learned a lot being with different classmates who had various strengths. GA curriculum was easy to follow and clear with no surprises - I rated it 4/5 mainly because I wish we spent more time on SQL and less time on the tableau segment. Highly recommend this class.

    Waited over 3 months for my certificate of completion

    After completing and passing the course, I had to wait over 3 months for the company to provide me my certificate of completion. I had to pester and constantly follow up, and never was provided any more information than, 'we're working on it.' Only until i resorted to social media did something actually get done about it. For a company that works with industry leaders I was blindsided by such a poor experience. I will not be taking a course from GA again.

    Digital Marketing Immersive

      I have just graduated from a 2-month full-time Digital Marketing Immersive course at General Assembly, Singapore.  It was a very engaging, fun, and intensive course that I enjoyed and benefitted from.  Michael Buchholz was our instructor.  He was very generous to share his in-depth marketing experience and provide invaluable insights.  The highlight of the course is the pro-bono client project which is also the capstone project.  With guidance from Michael, we applied what ...

    Engaging remote learning with legendary instructor team

    I recently completed the product management 10-week part time course with GA, remotely in Melbourne. I was worried about remote learning as I can find it difficult to be engaged but I found that the use of group, partner and solo activities around the core learning to help with this immensely. I love that the instructors were available for us to pick their brains around their real-world experience - I gained some invaluable learning this way.

    CATALYST (Income Share Agreement)

    I'm in the process of enrolling in GA's immersive UX and learned from their Admissions officer that their Catalyst (ISA) is NOT available anymore in California. Seems CA and 4 other states, per the Admissions officer, have regulated ISAs in order to protect consumers. I was really counting on this ISA, but now I'll likely have to apply for a loan- very disappointed. Good for consumer protections... but bad for folks in this process like me. Darn.

    GA UX Design Immersive Full Time is Worth It

    For anyone who is on the fence about bootcamps, or comparing the long-term value of bootcamps- General Assembly includes a career coaching component to the lessons and portfolio projects that set it apart from other bootcamps. There's a long-term value proposition that you take with you long after you graduate: how to effectively create a personal brand, network and find mentors -things that you probably won't find at many traditional colleges and universities until the last year in some...

    After paying in full for a Web Development course, I had to reschedule to another time.  However, I am still having trouble getting refunded.  I asked to cancel within the allotted time frame (within 14 days).  Contacted customer support and admissions, they tell me to talk to the person who helped me with registration.  I contact her (Tanya Clark) through email, no response for a few days.  I call her and she says she has been out of the office for the past few days.  Great.  She says s...

    UX Design

    I took the UX Design course from November 2021 to January 2022 with Matthew Reiswig. This is a fantastic class! I cannot recommend it enough. We were given all the tools and resources to get started as a professional UX Designer. I am definitely leaving this class feeling energized and empowered to tackle this new world of opportunities that lies ahead.
