What People are Saying
“I find the classes refreshing compared to traditional educational institutions. They are casual but the course content is refined. Would recommend this class to anyone who wants to get a solid understanding of the tools and methods that UX Designers use.”
Daniel, Vancouver, Course Report
“I found the course material to be informative and engaging, but it was made far better by the industry professionals leading the course. They were able to expand on the material provided by BrainStation and offer their own insights and anecdotes on UX and what it means to be a designer.”

“After the class I actually got hired to be a Junior UX Designer, and I am so excited. It is a completely new field and so far i'm loving it. I would definitely recommend this to a friend if they were looking to improve your career.”
