You'll leave the program empowered to create a startup from scratch, drive your business with digital or make a career switch into technology. You'll also have a network of like-minded people, friends and industry mentors; relationships you'll continue to develop beyond the classroom.

The Learning Environment

Our Toronto campus is located at King & Spadina, the heart of Toronto's tech community, steps away from some of the world's most influential technology companies including Shopify, Google, Snapchat and more. It's a learning environment unlike any other; grab your morning and afternoon coffee at our very own café, Quantum Coffee, and enjoy learning in a state-of-the-art classroom with beautiful brick and beam interiors, with access to a fully stocked kitchen, as well as a student lounge.

As a BrainStation student, you'll also have the opportunity to stick around after project time and attend a BrainStation evening event, whether it be an inspiring Panel Discussion, Block Party community social, hands-on workshop, Speaker Series or Fireside Chat. Full-time students receive learning credits to go towards evening events, and it's a great opportunity to network and mingle with the Toronto tech and startup community.

"BrainStation was the perfect platform to jumpstart my career in the tech industry. Not only was the course content helpful in acquiring this position (as I have to communicate with the dev team daily), but it taught me how to be comfortable with uncertainty. The tech industry changes everyday and we have to adapt in whatever way possible to stay afloat and thrive in this market."
