    Great course, great teachers!

    I've completed the 1 week digital marketing course and I'm so glad I've done it. This is the second course I've done with GA and they are always very well organised and have fantastic teachers. It's never dull learning with GA, thank you! They provided different learning mediums to ensure everyone is catered for, which being dyslexic I really appreciate. They could have done more in the pre-communication to make sure I was fully prepared and organised for the class. So just make sure you...

    General Assembly created a very easy-to-follow workflow for the classes. It was a very 'hands-on' approach, where we could put into practice all we learned. A very good comprehensive course, yet easy to follow. The instructors were phenomenal! Since they are real professionals working with the topics on a daily basis, they could give us a real insight into the professional day-by-day scenarios and examples. They were always available for that extra support as well. I'm really pleased wit...

    Great program but lacks a lot online

    I finished the UXDI course online and I think its a great program, but it lacks a lot of the in person experience that doesn't make it very worth it. If you thrive in a classroom setting, consider skipping online to either wait for campuses to reopen or take a course with a cheaper school. 
    Each campus does things differently, so there's a disconnect of what some people got for opportunities ot experiences than others. Upon being accepted, I was informed the online experience would be...

    User Experience Design Immersive

    I had an excellent time in my 12-week immersive bootcamp through General Assembly. I felt like the pacing was adequate, the lectures were rich with information, and the structure was strong. In this field it is hard to grasp the ambiguity of it all, but as you push through it becomes easier and easier and you begin to realize that it all comes together. My instructional team was always there when needed and gave helpful advice. I felt accepted and even praised for my human experience. Th...

    SEI

    Honestly, this course isn't worth it. The instructors fly through the material and only offer minimal support. The TA's are great, but sometimes lazy. The outcomes program, and student success portion of the program is an absolute joke. It really just felt like they got your money, and that's all that matters to them. It definitely depends on your instructor, but unfortunately I was stuck with an awful unit 1 instructor, so by unit 2 I was already so lost and couldn't follow along.

    A good investment

    I have always been interested in learning more about data analysis, but finding a suitable program was a challenge. I was recommended to attend a series of webinars held by GA to learn the difference between data science and analytics. After the sessions, I was able to pin down the program choice. 

    I then was able to easily connect with an advisor from GA who made himself accessible to share as much information on the program, process, and fees (smooth). He took the time to learn ...

    The course was very effective in practicing the skills of a UX designer. As one would expect, the course really depends on the instructors and the groupmates you are taking the course with, but I saw that General Assembly tries their best to keep that become a hindrance to the students by checking in with each student and group to support them with any issues, whether it be work-related or issues between group members. Overall, it's worth taking, if you can afford it and can handle fast-...

    Data Analytics

    I enjoyed the online course at General Assembly. The instructor was fantastic! It was a wonderful learning experience, where I have learned a lot of data analytics skills. I feel this is a valuable course and allows me to grasp how data analytics can be. I certainly have much more to learn in this field and look forward to doing so. 
    We received a Certificate of Course Completion right one week after the course was complete, which is super efficient!

    Certificate of completion? Awol

    The course was great overall, instructor was very good and helpful. Learned a lot. However it's been months now and no one in our bootcamp has received a certificate of completion even when we have asked several times. Beware, once the course is completed don't expect any evidence of actually completing it :(

    Love this bootcamp

    I attended this bootcamp as part of the Adobe Digital Academy program, and this bootcamp proved valuable. I came in with hopes on brushing up my react knowledge, since I was a very beginner. The instructor, Kareem, was superb, and I came out feeling a lot more confident. I am now doing an internship at Adobe using React, and the projects and the lessons I learned were all very applicable. I just wish we could have gone over more React concepts such as Redux or Hooks.
