The Experience

Full-time students work hard and play hard. Throughout your 10 weeks, you’ll be dedicating a lot of hours to building your skills, and it will likely be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Though the curriculum is intense, the learning environment is fun and collaborative, and you are learning from some of New York’s most talented digital Designers.

The Environment

There are lots of opportunities to network, meet new friends and mentors. BrainStation students have complimentary entry to all evening workshops and events, including Panel Discussions, hands-on workshops and Fireside Chats with thought-leaders across diverse industries.

No two days are the same, with a balance of independent study, hands-on group work, tech tours, career support and evening socials.

"I entered the UX Design program with the intent of changing my career path entirely and that's exactly what happened, even faster than I could have imagined. BrainStation has given me the skills and tools necessary to enter the tech workforce with confidence. It also has given me a newfound passion and career path that I have fully embraced, all thanks to the support of the educators at BrainStation.”
