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:

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.
- Set up a Java development environment.
“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 school gives you everything you need to be job-ready as a Data Analyst. The tasks are structured as real-life scenarios, so you gain relevant skills. The methodology is intensive, hands-on, and immediately dives you into the world of being able to... Read More use/read/manipulate data. The ethos of their education platform is ‘to learn by doing’. This is certainly the case. By the end of week 3, I was already proficient in using R and presenting findings as a data analyst. All the staff at Ubiqum are super friendly, and you can approach them with anything. They will go out of their way to get things sorted and make sure your time at Ubiqum is enjoyable.
Pros: The programme provided me with the skills I needed to successfully apply for data analyst roles, provided me with a knowledge of R beyond what I need in my current role as a market researcher, and my tutor (Luis Cerra) was absolutely amazing and... Read More was really invested in helping me understand the concepts and in helping me with my job search Cons: I know that the quality of tutors can vary, I got lucky with Luis! Also if your classmates aren't motivated then it can be a bit of an unengaging environment - but again, I got lucky here.
"Good experience, will be back for some more courses!"
Firstly, the Ubiqum team was super easy to talk to and nice when I wanted to join one of their courses. I was going through a rough patch and they made sure to give me every help they could so I could join their Full Stack course. The course itself had... Read More great content, greatly explained and with good exercises. The mentor was very good and nice to deal with. They trained us to learn by doing, by ourselves, to think outside of the box and to look for solutions with total independence - which sometimes is more important than the content of the course itself. They helped us to make our CV and prepared us for interviews. I found a job that I still maintain to this day a week before I even finished the course. Thank you Ubiqum!
If you prefer a learn-by-doing approach, I highly recommend Ubiqum. I enrolled in the Data Analysis and ML course, even do my background had nothing to do with IT or statistics. It was not easy, as the course is very demanding. However, if you fully commit... Read More to it, you will learn an impressive amount of new things in a relatively short period of time.
"Ubiqum Code Academy opened a whole new world for me"
I joined Ubiqum on Sept 2018, without no technical background nor even a degree. To be honest, at the beginning I wasn't still 100% convinced on what I was doing. My main driver for me to engage in their Data Analytics & Machine Learning program was to... Read More leave my previous job -mechanic- behind, since for long time ago I felt unfulfilled there. Luckily, I met there with wonderful mates and great mentors who enabled me to quickly get the basics of how an analyst should think and, out of it, begin to find my own way to become employable in such a challenging job. All I can do is to praise them for having developed an excellent program and learning methodology and for the time and support they invested to me as well, often going way further than what I asked for. For anyone wondering whether to engage or not: the key for you to succeed is attitude. Think more about your soft skills -logical thinking, work ethic, desire to learn, collaborative spirit, etc.- rather than on your background, which obviously can help you but by any means shouldn't be a hurdle for anyone coming from any other knowledge domain or industry.
I studied business but I wanted a more analytic role. Therefore I joined the analytics course at Ubiqum, which I learned R, Python , ML and more. After I joined as advanced data analyst at Accenture, where I have been working for the last 2 years and... Read More a half.
I took the three-month program of front-end developer and I can only say that my expectations were more than exceeded. The learning by doing methodology is the best approach one can take to learn such an amount of skills in that short period of time.... Read More You can not believe how much you learn every day in this practical hands-on approach. Mentors are very good and always willing to help and guide. And the career services worked very well and I had a new job only a few weeks after I graduated. My only watch to those who read this review is that you must be very willing to work very hard. The program is very good but very demanding as well. Do not expect the mentors to hold your hand and making your life easy. They are always approachable and will guide and advise but you will have to learn how to think by yourself as a professional. Thus, when you land a job you see no difference with the work you did at Ubiqum.
Coming from a traditional academic environment and holding two university degrees I had my doubts as to the real benefits of attending a tech bootcamp vs. enrolling in a university tech course. What finally swayed my decision were the obvious advantages... Read More of having a rich practical experience from day one combined with the freedom to get as much technical knowledge as my abilities allowed me. Upon reviewing several tech bootcamps in Barcelona area I chose Ubiqum Code Academy - Barcelona upon recommendations from some of my friends who had attended the same bootcamp as well as upon my personal observations interacting with Ubiqum staff and exploring the bootcamp facility. My particular experience remained highly positive throughout my stay at Ubiqum Code Academy - Barcelona for two main reasons - having proper expectations for the teaching environment/methods utilized and the fact that my team consisted of only three people, thus allowing me to work even more actively and at a higher pace with my mentors, thus covering way more material than originally planned. My personal experience with Ubiqum Code Academy - Barcelona MERN stack mentors was very positive, probably again because it felt close to my own views - I did not expect anybody to hold my hand or make it easy on me, but I knew that if and when I hit a wall, there was somebody standing by me to help.
In summary: if you are coming with the expectations of having a more "traditional" academic learning experience may be you should explore other possibilities first. If, however, you come prepared to start tackling real-life scenarios from day one, working hard and be the main engine of your own success then I would strongly recommend considering Ubiqum Code Academy as the right place to achieve those goals.
