    Happy with my decision

    Overall I do not regret my decision to attend GA.  I met some amazing people, and feel that I learned skills that will benefit me in my career change.  It's been 10 months since I've graduated and I still do not have a job.  The timing of when I finished school (right at the start of COVID) definitely affected employment, but I do feel like administration was a little misleading when it came to how soon I could expect to find work and gave somewhat unrealistic expectations about that pro...

    A bit of luck and a dedication to giving it all your all will make this program an incredible experience!!

    You get out of this immersive what you put into it. I dedicated myself to listening intently to and participating in the in-class exercises then often put in 10-20 hours of work outside of class each week to get ahead and immerse myself beyond what GA offered. This dedication and commitment to participation helped me leave GA with a perfect score and rave feedback from my instructors. As far as luck goes, you can't pick your instructors, my cohort had friction with one of ours, and there...

    Software Engineering Immersive Remote Flex

    I have had an overall positive experience with General Assembly's courses so far. I completed the Front-End Development remote course and it really prepared me for the next course I'm currently in, the Software Engineering immersive course. I'm currently in Unit 2, the course is very fast paced, but the instructors and TA's are incredibly helpful. The office hours and just your fellow classmates on slack are always open to help each-other, I've had study groups with multiple different cl...

    You get out what you put in.

     What background in coding did you have prior to the course?I came into my course having already coded a decent amount in my life. It was all hobby-based, but I felt pretty comfortable with HTML and CSS, as well as the basics of JavaScript. At the behest of some friends who were already software engineers, I also followed the advice I mentioned above, and tried to take advantage of AS MUCH free learning as I absolutely could. So for probably 2-3 ...

    Optimal Marketing Campaigns For Your Business

    I signed up for the accelerated Digital Marketing course which ran for about a week. Before the class, I was a bit rusty with Facebook Ads, Google Analytics/Ads and SEO. The instructor delivered real life marketing campaigns from his own business that helped us better understand how to formulate our customer persona + target market and take that research to design optimal websites/fb pages for our clients or business .  I came out having finished a marketing campaign for my consulting pr...

    A Transformative User Experience Design Immersive at the London Campus

    'd never have been able to transition fully into the Digital/Tech & UX spaces without the User Experience Design Immersive at GA that I undertook at the end of 2019. 

    It was truly a transformative experience where I got to meet industry pros, my fantastic cohort, guest lecturers and engaged teachers. Given the time-frame, the curriculum was overall well balanced as a long as you are aware of that you are being taught the "Cookie-cutter" UX-process and that it will most likely ...

    I have taken multiple courses through GA - both paid and complimentary. All the courses that I have taken have been awesome. The instructors are fantastic, knowledgeable and I always learn something. I would remind their Data Analysis Circuit and Marketing courses, especially.

    Changed my life forever

    General Assembly takes great care in its students and courses to give the best experience as possible. Through out my 12 week immersive course they taught and reinforced their lessons to make sure you knew the material. Through General Assembly I learned leadership and coding skills that have allowed me to land my first software Engineering role at Verizon. I can’t say a bad thing about my experience with General Assembly in NYC as I still today have friendships with my classmates and te...

    DATA ANALYTICS

    The course is very thorough and thoughtful on how to teach students what data analytics is and how to use differernt tools to solve each type of real life problems.

    I found it very hands on and being able to get feedback from instructors also made it that much better for improvement!

    Def recommend!

    Ok

    Instructors

    Many of the instructors are recent grads themselves. In one way, this is smart because it ensures that information is new and relevant, and you aren't being taught deprecated or soon-to-be deprecated material (out-of-date, no longer supported). The bad side to it is you aren't going to get help with things outside of their experience, compared to an institution that hires instructors that are seasoned in their fields.

    Excellent Product Management course

    As I said in the title this course is simply fantastic. 

    It is well structured with a project that you work on along side learning the theory. This really embeds what your learning and gives you a solid foundation to understand Product Management.
    Course content that was provided is also really useful to take away. I did this course via distance learning and although it is an intense week, all the tools provided worked well and I never felt I was missing out.

    Product Management

    My experience was overall outstanding. I got a great education, lots of follow up material, and the ability to practice my skills as a product manager. I'm excited to see where my career takes me from here. I do wish there were more resources to help with resume shaping and product management interviews.
