    UXD Immersive - You will only succeed if you put in the work

    Intro:In my experience, the online UXD Immersive was an amazing environment to learn the basic foundations of UXD. Don’t think however that going through a bootcamp is an easy and effortless way to make a career switch and a surefire way to score a UXD job post-course. The curriculum, instructors, and career coach give you the tools to become successful, but you need to go above and beyond to make the most out of it.

    UX Design Immersive

    This was one of the best experiences I have had! The instructors are veterans in the field, extremely patient and helpful, and willing to help whenever needed. Not only were the instructors incredible, but I have met some of the most talented and friendly people through this bootcamp. Although the price is a bit hefty, the experience and outcome are worth every penny.

    Great curriculum and instructors

    I was a student, then an instructor, and then got hired in the industry I was concentrating in. I took the Data Science Intensive and found the curriculum to be solid and the instructors very knowledgeable. Given the intensive nature of the course, outside effort was required but extremely rewarding. Do NOT go into an intensive unprepared; do the pre-work and commit to the course as if it were a job.

    Great program to kickstart your engineering career—but you have to do the work!

    Before I go into detail, I want to make it clear that this is a 12-week course. You can't learn everything in 12 weeks. You should go into this knowing that you're going to pull all-nighters, cry, and become frustrated—but you have tons of support and resources available to you, so take advantage of it! I enjoyed GA's course. I feel like we learned all of the things that we'd want to learn from an instructor and not on our own. This is an incredibly fast-paced class. I was in the remote ...

    Solid Program, Great Teachers

    After being a stay-at-home mom for 5 years I wanted to reenter the workforce but wanted a career pivot. With a 15 year degree in marketing and graphic design I had a good background for UX but didn't know how to make the jump. On top of that, I needed a way to support myself since I was planning on getting a divorce. General assembly was the perfect chance to change my career into something that that I could support my daughter and I with. The program was intense but I couldn't have aske...

    Software Engineering Immersive - Highly Recommended!

    I have always been interested in working with computers and after being surrounded by some amazing software engineering friends, I decided I wanted to delve deeply into coding projects and problem-solve just like them. Fast forward to my General Assembly experience, I graduated from the Software Engineering Immersive program where I developed skills in JavaScript, React, Ruby on Rails, and other technical skills that allowed me to build four projects over the course of the twelve-week fu...

    Software Engineering Immersive (Remote, part-time)

    Easily the best career decision I've ever made.  The flexibility of the part-time program and depth of the curriculum make this a perfect course for someone with a full-time job who is looking to make a career change without having to leave their current role. 

    The instructors were phenomenal—extremely knowledgeable/willing to answer questions, supportive and empathetic throughout the duration of the course, which was 6 months. There's a lot of work involved, but it's definitely w...

    GA was the best experience of my life, I had virtually no coding experience going into the program and came out with the vast knowledge I desired going into it and I loved every second of it. All of the instructors do a wonderful job from the get go setting expectations and guidelines and really help and support you through the course. Yes the course is difficult and fast paced but it is designed to get you job ready in 3 months and teach you all of the necessary skills, not just coding ...

    General Assembly changed my life. GA makes it clear from day one that the course will not be easy. They help to prepare one mentally to face the emotional rollercoaster of learning to program. When I came to GA, I had left the safety of my job with benefits to bet on myself again. I was not let down. The ~12 weeks in the course are hard, really hard. It is so rewarding to graduate knowing that I gained valuable skills and can now build beautiful, functional web applications. This has ope...

    A worthwhile investment

    Enrolling in the Software Engineering Immersive was the best career move I've made. The course is a significant investment of time and money, but it was worth it. I had wonderful instructors who didn't just teach programming, but also explicitly taught a lot of the meta-skills around software development. The Outcomes career-coaching portion of the course was invaluable as well. The best part was being in a cohort with around 20 other students, who were my first community in tech, and it...
