    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...

    Trouble getting refunded

    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.

    Data Analytics

    I am satisfied with the depth of the content, the quality of the teaching (Chris was fantastic!) and GA overall (platforms and UI). However, in my opinion, this course is overpriced. 
    The course costs £2,800 and I did the 40 hours intensive course completed in 6 days. 
    I paid in three instalments which helped, but I believe this course would be better priced at £2,000. 

    I am happy to have enrolled on this course. However, in my humble opinion, this didn't seem good value for...

    UX design course

    Not worth it, It is super hectic and fast-paced. Classes start with full-day presentations (similar to recorded videos) none stop from 9am to 5pm, then on the third day you have to turn in your project and if your project is not good enough, you are out. (Just like that). 
    If you can learn by yourself from YouTube then you can learn in this course also.

    Part-Time Data Science Course

    This course was really great to learn about the different applications of leveraging python for data science. I really enjoyed the two part presentation (apply learning to a dataset of your choice - presenting your analysis at two points during the course.)

    Definitely gave me confidence to continuing learning in this field.

    Overall, course is great for anyone currently doing some degree of analytical work and who would like to expand their skill set.

    Data Analytics Course Review

    The instructors are professional and supportive, I took 10 weeks data analytics course which is intensive, but is also informative and well organized. The course is suitable for full time workers who have interests in data analysis and want to acquire  Excel, SQL, and Tableau skills.

    Provides a solid foundation to build on

    The course at GA was well structured and jam packed with relevant and easy to follow concepts. The support staff were very professional and supportive. The teacher was very generous with her time and extremely knowledgable. The curriculum is a good mix of class time, activities and practice time. The online class experience was very easy and collaborative. I would recommend this course to anybody who wants to get into the UX field.

    Incredible

    I learned so much in such a short period of time, GA has taken me from knowing basic HTML, CSS, JS to being a full stack developer. After graduating I managed to add another 2 full stack applications to my portfolio, which goes to show you don’t even need your teachers afterwards to get stuff done since they teach you everything properly  so it sticks!
