Check out what our students have to say about their time with BrainStation.
Review from Course Report
"I had previously studied UX/UI design in a traditional college setting, but I was missing professional pieces for my portfolio, a thorough curriculum that followed industry standards, and a small class environment with assistance from teachers. BrainStation fulfilled all those needs for me."
User Experience Design
Review from Course Compare
"BrainStation was one of the best experiences of my life. It introduced me to the tech industry in such a fantastic way. I hit the ground running and have been set on an incredibly positive trajectory of which I never before thought possible."
Review from Switchup
"Besides learning programming languages and concepts, we also learned how to give a presentation, how to network and make an impression. After the program ended, we got extra material to help us get a job. As I finished my last week, I already had a meeting with a company's CEO for a potential position."
UX/UI Designer at
"I've taught online courses in higher education at the college level, and the platforms are not always this user-friendly. If you've taken an online course, from a college or community college, and didn't have the best experience, I'm certain you'll find BrainStation's platform to be much more user-friendly."
Danica S. Nelson
Sr. Marketing Communications Manager at
"The skills I learned have helped me better understand targeting practices and user personas, pinpointing what verbiage has the highest likelihood to resonate with my audience, what layouts and formats drive the most engagement, what platforms tend to have the highest conversion rates for different demographics, and much more that I’m applying to my role today."
Regional Community Lead at
"The highlight was definitely the people. The instructors are really down-to-earth, I met some new people, and it felt like a family. The people who are in the classes are all working to better themselves and are real go-getters, I think that’s what makes the class so special."
Software Developer at
"My experience at BrainStation really impacted my career as it put me in a position to get the job I have today. It was at BrainStation's demo day, where students are able to demonstrate their capstone projects to hiring partners, that I made my initial contact with my current employer. The access to BrainStation's professional network put me in the position I am in today, which really solidified my decision to enroll in the Web Development program."
Senior Analyst, Data Insights & Analytics at Loblaw Companies Limited
"I learned various tools, techniques, and strategies that I didn’t have before, and the program has completely changed the way I view data. I can now understand and even recommend data science solutions while having the confidence to build them myself, which is something I find extremely rewarding."
Pricing Analyst at Canadian Tire
"The main draw of BrainStation is its flexibility – it provides exposure to the rising field of data science without being as large of a financial commitment as a master’s program. I was also attracted to BrainStation’s project-based approach. BrainStation graduates not only acquire the requisite skills needed to compete in their new industry, but also have a relevant portfolio of work to showcase what they’ve learned."
Junior Data Scientist at Ellis Don
"Thanks to BrainStation’s vast industry connections, I was able to attend several tech tours and step into the Toronto tech world for the first time. Prior to BrainStation, I wasn’t in touch with the tech community at all, and being part of the program helped me see how important digital skills have become in career development, and how it will continue to evolve in the future."
