I've always had an interest in website design and development, and I've had the opportunity to develop basic skills in my career. However, our tech needs had become greater and I knew I needed some more hands-on education, but with a full-time job, it was difficult to find the right kind of training. BrainStation was the best decision I ever made. Their part-time program made it easy to attend the classes after work once a week, and their support was incredible throughout the whole process. Each week felt very intense, and we learned a lot despite it being a part-time program - way more than just the basic skills. It was hard to believe that by the end of 10 weeks I was able to code a full website from scratch, but I did and loved every minute of it!
The instructor was amazing - he was clearly experienced in both the subject matter and how to teach, and made every topic feel approachable. He intuitively seemed to understand what concepts the class needed more time on, and was able to be flexible, sometimes introducing concepts typically outside the scope of the course when we seemed ready to try a more advanced topic. Having support not just during class but also available online in between classes made it feel like we had way more class time than we actually did.
The campus was located in the heart of the Toronto tech scene, so it felt like there were constant references to real-world examples of what companies were doing right down the street, which was super cool.
BrainStation also made it really easy to find a way to not only find a class to fit with my busy work schedule, but also the scholarship opportunities made it possible for me to attend and learn a new school that may have otherwise been out of reach.
I truly can't recommend BrainStation enough - I'm confident that any class you took there would result in a new skill set you can be sure to use in the tech industry today!

I just finished the User Experience Design course at Brainstation. I decided to pursue this course because after 5 years of working in the digital marketing sector, I was ready to learn new skills that could lead to new career opportunities. I had heard good things from friends and colleagues who had studied at Brainstation- so I decided to take the plunge!
I signed up to take the course online part-time, so I could study outside of my full-time job. The course was short but intense, and I learned a lot. From designing a sites information architecture, to wireframing, prototyping and user testing- I now feel ready to explore the job market with the skills I learned in this course.
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!
