Ubiqum Code Academy's highly immersive programs equip students from all backgrounds with the technical skills and experience they need to be 100% employable in the IT and technology sector.
The Ubiqum experience is unique for the learning methodology. They use a “Project Based", 100% practical methodology. No lectures, no subjects, no exams. Only practical work constantly supervised by a personal mentor. You “learn by doing” and when you finish you have your own portfolio of projects to show to recruiters.
During the program, students work as a professional from day one, taking on the role and tasks of either a junior developer or analyst, thus preparing them for work in such fields.
After completing between 12-20 weeks of practical, 'learn by doing' training in either data analytics or web development, the students acquire in-demand, specific technical skills that are 100% transferable to the workplace.
Students can choose either an onsite program in Barcelona, or a remote (online) learning option. Both in person, and online paths include professional mentor support and professional career services.
In this program you will learn the Business Data Analytics Process:
.- Develop a business hypothesis
.- Create, prepare, clean and pre-process a data set using Python and R
.- Use Machine learning algorithms to create a model
.- Analyse and interpret results and train the model
.- Convert results into business recommendations
This program is aimed at absolute beginners who are considering a career in data analytics or to use it as part of their existing skillset.
By completing this program, you will be able to:
- Analyse data sets and determine what additional treatments are needed to work with them.
- Define business hypotheses that can actually be tested by processing the data.
- Understand and apply Machine Learning algorithms to perform data mining or create machine learning models.
- Present conclusions to both a technical and business orientated audience.
Prerequisites: We do not ask for any prerequisite. Those candidates with rusty knowledge in statistics, probability calculus, linear algebra and basic programing are requested to take a test and are assigned some pre-work to level up and meet the minimum requests to start the program.

This program is perfect for absolute beginners in programming. It was designed by experts in software development and will teach you to develop a modern web application (front and back-end) using Java and Agile methodologies.
The program is composed of 4 projects that the student develops with the help of the mentor:
- Project one: develop your first web site with HTML and CSS.
- Project 4: Build a complete videogame , front and back end with Java.
After completing this course, you will be able, among other skills, to:
- Code in Java using all modern programming concepts, including variables, functions, loops, arrays, complex data structures, and classes.
- Use Spring Boot and test tools for creating sophisticated web services.
- Implement an interface using RESTful.
- Use JSON data structures to send data.
- Design and manage a database on a server.

“MERN” is an acronym for four tools: MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js. These four tools, when integrated together as a stack architecture, allow you to perform the back-end functions without having to learn a whole new back-end language. While traditional back-end languages like Java are essential in the corporate world and for large-scale software development, MERN Stack is a very solid alternative for the initial stages of start-ups and boasts a huge demand on the market.

The bootcamp was a really intense and gratifying experience. The bootcamp was demanding but it worths every single second you invest in it. The premise in Ubiqum is learning by doing. At the begining it can be even frustrating: you are lost, you do not... Read More know how to handle the problem, etc. In that moment you must keep calm, organize your ideas and being willing to dedicate huge amounts of effort and time. After the first few weeks you start realizing you are evolving faster than you could ever imagine before and that frustration turns into satisfaction. You are not just growing as a data scientist, you are developing new skills whose value in the world of work is highly appreciated. I did not have any previous experience in data science but, in the final stage, I had the feeling of being already prepared to give a good performance from day one in any related job. Additionally, the program "boosting my career" helps you to face the job interview, optimize your CV and even introduce you to companies interested on learned topics. To sum up, I strongly recommend the bootcamp to those who are interested in data science, are willing to work hard to get their professional goals and want to make a step forward in their career as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Personally, I had a great time going to the school every day and meeting people who wanted a change in their careers, just like me. My classmates were the best! The learning by doing method it´s the most efective way of learning, specially in this field.... Read More It gives you independence since it makes you look for the answers by yourself, just like in a real job! I got helped finding a job, which it´s appreciated, but nothing comes easily.
"The most engaging way to improve your data analysis skills"
This program was great in terms of platform, exerecises and mentors. It is the best and most entertaining way of improving your analytical skills and get familiar with two softwares widely used in data science: python and R. The exercises provided step-by-step... Read More instructions which allowed us to easily follow the tasks, as well as realistic datasets, which makes you face real life situations from the very beginning. Also, the mentorship was great - the tutors were largely available to solve doubts, guide us towards the solution and even propose extra ideas if the task was already accomplished; I really appreciated the individualized feedback I got during the full course. The one thing to consider is that the program is time consuming, so if you are working full time in parallel you may not have the time to profit 100% from this experience. Still, I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in data science!
"Good place to learn data analytics. With really good mentors"
Highly recommended. The learning by doing methodology helps you to understand everything really well. From my point of view the mentors are the best of the experience. They have a very good level, they guide you, explain everything you need and are at... Read More your disposal at all times.

Ubiqum requested us to post a review since last year, I waited to finish another Analytic course (cheaper), a free online course before sharing my experience. I am not new at coding, I do some SQL, advanced Macro for years . From past experiences, I benefited... Read More a lot from job shadowing, face to face mentorship (from experts at my workplace and online course, then consolidated and grew more skills thru tasks and time). So I was attracted by the "learning doing" at your pace advertised. Also, they had "good" reviews too. Though mostly from the Spanish campus and I guess by now, most done before 2019 before Ubiqum expansion in other countries, all that led me to enroll at Ubiqum in 2019 on site. FAR BEFORE THE 1st COVID ALERT IN CHINA, so any lockdown in Europe.... From week 1 I felt low spirited, by week 3 hearing the same from other disappointed students about the outdated curriculum and the unskilled frustrating mentors; I realized I had to quit the program and send a request for the refund. I was informed that the cancellation period was over. Until today I deeply regret that choice, I lost hard earned savings . Do not even make me start on their Job support... They do not get you the job, nor in any effective way help you finding one. My cheap online class offered: online professional resume help and support+ technical preparation for challenges or case studies for interviews. 1000euros vs 10000euros. With so many people financially struggling with the current market, economy, I can definitely say that Ubiqum was not worth it at all.
Dear Bert, I am very sorry to hear your disappointing experience at Ubiqum. In fact this is not the regular experience of our students. If you see the many other testimonials in this page you can see that most of the time we do things really well and... Read More we are always ready to learn and improve. Unfortunately this has not been the case with you and I, personally, as the CEO and founder at Ubiqum, would like to have a talk with you to understand what went wrong and see how I can compensate for the inconvenience we may have caused. However, you do not identify yourself completely and I could not find your personal data in our students database. I look forward to receive a call or an email from your side to talk.

I compared this bootcamp to others and chose the Ubiqum one because it used Java. Java is still a really popular language and also very versatile. The course starts easy with basic coding and slowly but surely you go into the harder stuff. The progress... Read More in the course is pretty good but the step from front end to the back end programming is actually quite big. I've had several moments during the course in which I felt stuck and not really able to get the level. Luckily the mentor in the program is really good. He is very experienced and he really pulled me through it when I was very stuck. The good thing about this course is that you have a set program, but with your mentor, there is also room for flexility. I was able to experiment with some extra technologies that weren't in the program, but are still going to be very valuable in the industry. Finding a job after the program wasn't super easy. It took me about 1,5 months and most companies are looking for people with 2-3 years of experience. I noticed that I was invited for interviews if I really emphasized that you start programming from the first day. It also helped a lot to highlight that you have an portfolio on github with all your projects so the companies can actually see that you have been working for several months. Overal I would recommend the bootcamp because I know I wouldn't have been able to learn all of this in such a short time by myself. But prepare yourself for a rough couple of months with many ups and downs and lots of hard work.
I didn't have any experience in coding before getting into the Data Analytics & ML bootcamp at Ubiqum. Although it is true that in the first month it can be overwhelming, it is amazing how, with the learning-by-doing methodology and the support from the... Read More mentors, fast you start being comfortable with languages such as R or Python and many concepts from machine learning and data analysis. I would recommend it to those who are motivated to either shift their career path or want to apply data science to their respective fields, and are eager to learn and work hard during the 5-6 months of the course to get the most out of it.
