About Ubiqum Code Academy

Location: Online, Barcelona

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.

Ubiqum offers courses in full-stack with Java, full-stack with... Read More

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.

Web Development with JavaScript

Cost: €4,400 - €6,500
Duration: 12 weeks
Locations: Online, Barcelona
In-person Available Online
Course Description:

Designed for students with absolutely no prior programming knowledge, you will learn to code and become a front-end developer by learning and applying front-end technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), and “MERN Stack” technologies (MongoDB, Express, React and Node.js). Because the program covers both front and back-end programming, after 3 months (500hrs), you'll become a full stack developer, ready to land a job in the opportunity-rich world of tech. This program is aimed at anyone who wants to get their coding career started.

“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.

Tuition: €6.500 on campus; 4.400 online

Subjects:
CSS, MongoDB, Bootstrap, AJAX, JSON, React.js, Node.js, Express.js, JavaScript, Web Development

"inflated marketing claims and"

The course itself could be really good but it was delivered very badly. Although the projects are quite interesting, the actual online material is super outdated and it is up to the mentors to provide more ideas of how to approach the tasks with more... Read More

The absolutely worst part, though, is the job support. The company gives you statistics of successful alumni with new jobs and their salaries which sound good, but I suspect this is all made up, and definitely those numbers are not true for the recent alumni. Ubiqum also claims that they have an extended network of companies in Barcelona who hire alumni, but from what I have seen and experienced, this is nonsense. The company doesn't even keep an up to date network of alumni, which would be helpful for networking. During my time there, all that happened was two "career days" -- one of which was even a visit of recruiters, not even an actual hiring company. Besides that, all that was ever provided in the job support arena were two workshops about improving your CV and linkedin profile, and a practice HR interview. Frankly, my feeling was that Ubiqum didn't give a shit about whether their alumni get a job or not. After those workshops were completed, I have not received a single followup communication from the career services, let alone a referral for a job interview.

I would really love to give a more positive review, because I overall had a good time during the course, and met some interesting and great people among students and mentors. However, at what I paid for, Ubiqum failed spectacularly. It is clear that Ubiqum doesn't care about actual education, only about making money through inflated marketing claims.

"RIDICULOUSLY UNSKILLED MENTORS AND WORSE MANAGEMENT EVER IN AMSTERDAM CAMPUS AT LEAST"

You wished you've paid for skilled and knowledgeable mentors. Their ridiculous assumption that a mentor is there for cheering and not teaching is to hide from their shortcoming. No care from mentors, busy chatting, job hunting or doing their own learning... Read More

Management NEVER replied to our emails, the turnaround at the headquarter is terribly high, guess why.
The curriculum in class was maybe well priced at 4000$ few years ago, but they bumped the price and extended to play among the BEST worldwide bootcamps , but they are providing VERY POOR services.

I won't even start with their not updated websites ( so many broken links), tons of youtube videos, old case-studies. Mostly R, when the environment is fast pace, and Python should be added. Their AWS training is shameful, one week to learn AWS. Furthermore, beyond student fees , we had to pay more for AWS practice.

Well, Job support, IN THE NETHERLANDS, THERE HAVE 0 SUPPORT, NO NETWORK, We met some past students, they are still job hunting. You job hunt, apply to a certain number of applications you found on your own...

Management should pay us back some tuitions, we paid full tuitions for in-class and half was done online ( we all suffer from Covid financial cost, use dour savings, not able to find a job etc)

"Please learn from us, STAY THE HELL AWAY ! Amsterdam office is garbage too."

During this pandemic, I am learning the same or more from Free Online material! I thought my 9900euros will provide me with more tools, I was fooled by their marketing.

Here is the 9900 euros favorite "story telling" methodology from Ubiqum :

Okay, soooo no theory. Then tons of practice and surely plenty of work experience that could serve us, right?!
After hearing the feedbacks given by the mentors to some students far more 'experienced' than them, I got my answers.

Even in the Netherlands, none of us dare to be direct. It Is funny how the Web development students envy the apparent 'structured' Data Analytics department. We bite our tongue too long, expecting things to get better.
Unfortunately, the 10days refund period is gone. Anyways, I am still waiting for a reply from the head office in Spain. So, who am I kidding?
My money is so gone, and good luck finding a job in the field within 6 months per as Ubiqum ads with my current skills.

"An absolute disappointment, stay away"

Total scam. It's a 'school', shoved in an office space, with 'mentors' from Spain. This is a place where your 'mentor' doesn't come on time to work. When he does, he doesn't apologizes for being late. On top of that, he is rude. Also, he is not a real... Read More

The program itself is horrible. 2500 euro of the price said it was for workshops. Our group had 2 in total in the 3 months we spent there. If you consider going to this place, which I strongly would advice against, know that NO ONE FINISHES THE COURSE IN THREE MONTHS, because it's impossible to do so. Also, to make things sadder, they give the certificate to everyone, except to the people that complain to them. I am one of those, because I called them out for their lies, bad program, irresponsible and dreadful behavior from 'mentors', and I don't have a certificate. The things you read on their page are not true. They do not have a network of companies in the Netherlands, pictures on Instagram and posts in general about anything in Amsterdam are completely misleading. Trying to reason with the main office in Barcelona was also a fruitless effort. They ignore emails, are very rude, and don't discuss refunds besides being aware of horrible service. I feel very strongly for losing my money to this place, and I hope no one has to go through it again. So no, I would not recommend it, if you appreciate your time and your thousands of euros.
