"I can't recommend General Assembly enough!"

Earlier this year I decided to make a career transition from architecture to UX/UI design and General Assembly quickly became my number one choice for education, and that was a really great decision. I enrolled in the UX Design Immersive course at GA,... Read More

Not only did I learn a lot of hard skills that are valuable, but I also learned a lot soft skills and was given tons of support in the job seeking process. GA's outcomes program is rigorous but incredibly supportive. Just a week after graduating from UXDI I have been given way more support in my career development than in the four years that I was in college.

All in all, General Assembly runs an incredible educational platform, and their passion for supporting their students make a meaningful switch into a new career is obvious. Give General Assembly a chance and you won't be disappointed.

"Hard but worth it"

I'll keep this short and simple.

The program is hard. The saying "You get what you put into it" rings true in every way. You'll need to understand that the majority of your time in the program and even after class will be dedicated to learning. I would... Read More

You're given an assessment to take before hand, but keep in mind that this is meant to gauge whether or not you'll be a good fit for the program and while you may pass, there's a chance you aren't entirely ready. My one complain about the program is that it's directed at anyone despite their familiarity with programming. The instructors do an amazing job, but anyone learning from scratch is going to have a hard time.

To sum it up, I would wholeheartedly recommend GA SEI to anyone who wants to learn programming, but brace yourself for a pretty wild ride.

The course felt like it breezed by at times but if you take the time to review the material and seek out help along with their available resources, then you will succeed.

"Met my expectations and prepared me for the job search!"

I knew that I wanted to take a UX Design program and after doing a lot of research, it turned out that General Assembly was the best program on the market. I spoke with students who had taken the course prior and they all had great things to say about... Read More

I took the full-time program in D.C. and my instructors were very intelligent. We worked with real-clients to solve actual problems with their websites. I was able to refine my research and strategy skills, while also building up my UX and visual design skills.

I recommend this program for anyone trying to break into the Design field that has a background in sales/marketing/etc. just like me! I was able to land a job right out of the program, but the team works with you for as long as you need if you don't find something a job during the course.
