Response From: Josh Teng of NEXT Academy
Title: Founder
Sunday, Mar 04 2018

Hi,

I'm Josh, the founder of NEXT Academy. I've worked with my team to further understand where you're coming from and I would like to personally apologize that you had a bad experience. We take this very seriously because it's what my team and I are dedicating our lives towards - the empowerment of people to pursue careers in technology. Clearly, there's something that we have failed with your experience.

We have stopped making any claims about the percentages of students getting jobs since early 2017. The reason why we stopped isn't that our quality and commitment have dropped, in fact, we are dedicating far more resources and attention than ever to ensure a good outcome for our students. 

The reason why we removed the claim was because between Q4 2016 - Q2 2017, we removed our admission interview and failed to communicate to incoming students about the preparation necessary prior to joining the bootcamp (yes, you can join the bootcamp as a beginner, but there are a few things that potential students need to prepare for. we address those in the admission interview). We have since restarted the admission interviews to prevent students from having known bad experiences.

We have made many improvements consistently to the bootcamp and curriculum since Q2 of 2017 and are continuously doing so. One of the biggest being a MONEY BACK guarantee for students who fail to secure a job after attempting the bootcamp. We have, obviously, some terms in place to prevent people from gaming the system since we have bills to pay.

Again, I would like to sincerely apologize. I ensure you that we are not working on NEXT Academy to make a quick buck - there is also a high cost operating a physical academy employing highly demanded engineers. NEXT Academy has been around for close to 4 years and we plan to be for decades to come. The only way we can remain in business is to ensure a good outcome for you and others.

For others who are reading this and have thoughts about joining NEXT Academy, I hope you will continue to consider us. And may I suggest that you go on LinkedIn and search for students who have attended NEXT Academy and have a conversation with them just so you get more opinions before parting with hard earned cash.

To the person who left this review, I'm not sure who you are but I would like to hear from you. If you are comfortable reaching out, do email me at josh@nextacademy.com.

Title: Program Coordinator
Monday, Sep 11 2017

Hi, I'm Colin, the Program Coordinator at NEXT Academy. 

We view students' input and concerns seriously and constantly work with our students/graduates especially on matters related to curriculum. Unfortunately, I could not find your student record in our system. I have also tried to get in touch with you via your email address on Course Report but was not able to reach you. May I know which intake are you from?
