The Experience

The full-time UX Design program offers a learning experience unlike any other. The content is rigorous and moves at a quick pace, while the environment is fun, collaborative and supportive. Every day is different, introducing you to the latest cutting-edge technologies used by industry professionals in the real-world.

The Environment

You’ll love coming to class every day in our beautiful brick and beam campus located in the heart of downtown Toronto in the King West neighbourhood. Fuel up for the day with a coffee from Quantum, our campus café, and enjoy working on your projects in our state-of-the-art classroom. Take a mid-afternoon break and visit our fully stocked kitchen and unwind in the student lounge.

As a full-time student, you’ll gain access to a host of networking and further learning opportunities with BrainStation’s evening events and workshops, from Panel Discussions to Fireside Chats with industry leaders. These events are an awesome opportunity to network with the local tech and startup community.

"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.”
