I had an interesting experience with BrainStation while completing the Data Analytics course. The cohort was lively and always engaged with the instructors. The instructors themselves were very easy to approach and happy to provide feedback and were both clearly very excited about their students' learning experience.
As a full-time professional aiming to further my career I have had a lot of experience with online learning and so I feel confident in saying the experience at BrainStation is unique. The program is geared towards getting the best out of the online sessions and making learning and the instructors as accessible as possible with instructors hours outside of the regular class session and a team of instructors who are always looking to help.
In addition, learning at BrainStation is also an opportunity to network with like-minded professionals and the occasional student looking to make a change in their careers. All in all it was definitely a positive experience which I would gladly recommend to friends and family. #BrainStation

I recently completed 10 week, online live User Experience Design course through Brainstation. Each week of the course included a lecture style introduction to a UX design topic, hands on activities, discussion, and take away work. All of the material related directly to our final project, designing an app or website to solve a problem of our choosing. The pace of the course allowed us to cover a lot of material in just a few hours a week. The instructors were incredibly helpful at explaining topics, providing real work examples, and giving feedback on our projects. It was clear that their goal was to help us to create a solid portfolio piece that we were proud of and reflected everything we learned in class. I would recommend this course for anyone who does not have any UX experience and is looking to explore the field.
Do you offer financing for tuition?
Yes we do! We offer different payment options based on the course to make our education as accessible as possible.
Are computers provided?
BrainStation courses are BYOL (bring your own laptop). This allows you to complete homework in the comfort of your own home and to become comfortable with your machine to continue your learning beyond completion of the course.
Can I just learn on my own?
Ultimately people are social learners, there is nothing that can substitute a classroom of students as eager to learn as yourself. It may take you years to learn something on your own without proper guidance. At BrainStation we have industry experts that condense years of learning into a matter of weeks and provide resources to support you beyond graduation as well!
Who are my teachers?
All of the teachers at BrainStation are experts in their respective disciplines and bring extensive real world experience into the classroom. Simply put, you are learning from the best and brightest.
