    Challenging but Fun!

    I took the UX Immersive bootcamp in January 2023 and had a blast. It is definitely not for people who are not ready to work hard, because you need to be ready to put in a lot of hours of work if you want to get the most out of the course. Our instructor Nick Anderson was amazing and I could not recommend it enough.

    Fruitful, insightful and enjoyable Bootcamp

    Before signing up for the course, I was considering whether to upskill through self-study or attending a Bootcamp. Wanting to connect with more like-minded people and get a certificate, I signed up for the course.



    It turns out that I had gained more than that. The course is designed such that you can follow well and get the most of it. Our instructors are helpful and provide lots of insights for real world Software Engineering role.

    Amazing experience with the SEI program

    General Assembly’s Software Engineering Immersive served as a great experience that allowed me to grasps web development and give me the skill to pursue software engineering. My instructors were amazing and were always willing to chat after class and help me understand anything that I had questions on. The full-time program is definitely an time investment but I personally think it’s worth it. I do wish that on the final unit more time was spent on Typescript but I enjoyed it nonetheless...

    An engaging, worthwhile endeavor

    The curriculum for Data Analytics Remote (Online) was exactly what I needed to get started in the Data Analytics space, but the instructor is what really brought this course to life. Durga was fantastic in taking the time to explain concepts and give additional examples where needed. She used her day-to-day experience to help illustrate how the course work could be used in practical instances. I highly recommend the course, and am looking forward to additional GA classes over time.

    A great experience I will look back on fondly

    My experience was overall great! Since graduating, I have done a ton of work to continue my education and skill building in ux by doing pro bono work, alongside looking for full time work. Although I feel like UX bootcamp classes may not be the most accurate depiction of the realities of any particular job, my instructional team definitely gave me the resources and skills needed to apply in many directions. I just have to maintain that willingness to grow post course! Since I graduated i...

    The instructors at General Assembly are phenomenal at what they do and also bring lots of real world experience to the table. I learned so much more than I expected to within the 6 months I attended the Software Engineering Immersive Online Flex program. It was a lot to juggle between a full time job and the bootcamp, but it was so worth it, and I was able to secure an SE job within a few months of graduating.

    Course was very fun, challenging, and informative. Classes were structured at the right pace...occasionally material was confusing, however both instructors (Britni and Tricia) gave us ample time to ask questions. I was blessed to work with 4 other smart, capable students in a preassigned small group for a project (1 member later dropped out which did increase the workload). Nevertheless, this is a great course if you're new or seasoned to product management. Cost is on the higher side f...

    Worth the hard work!

    I attended my Software Engineering Immersive (SEI) bootcamp with General Assembly in mid-late 2022.

    Having previously met and hired multiple graduates from GA I went in having done quite a lot of my own + some crowdsourced research, and was not disappointed.
    Definitely not for the faint of heart, GA will take your education (and post-graduation) seriously, and push you to the limits of what you can accomplish in a short time frame (12 week immersive in my case).

    This was one of the most intense courses I did, it's only 6 days long, but the content was great.
    We went from ideation to investor deck in less than a week.  The instructor was outstanding, had great communication skills and a wealth of product experience.

    Dived in to the Software Engineer Immersive Course

    I recently completed a 12 week software engineer immersive course at GA Sydney and I couldn't be happier with the result. The course covered a wide range of topics, including computer history, javascript, ruby on rails, jQuery, react, and Vue. I was impressed by the creativity and fun aspects of the course, such as learning three JS and p5, and even creating music with sonicPi.
