"Lackluster Teachers, Little Support"

I'm 2/3 of the way through Trilogy's full stack web development bootcamp, meeting part-time over 24 weeks. While this is branded as UT, it is clear that it is only "UT" in terms of where it holds it's classes, so that in itself is a bit misleading. Our... Read More

The "Student Success Advisor" is a joke. He will "check in" with you but don't expect to get support when a real issue arises. Due to the cancelled classes, our course schedule online has been very off, and constantly confuses students and teachers alike. He has been asked at least 5 times to fix it, and he has not. He has been asked for access to additional resources, and has promised to provide them, and after over a month, has still not fulfilled his promise.

I took out a substantial loan for this program, and due to the nature of this program (not counting as a degree seeking educational program) I did not qualify for student assistance or student loans, and therefore had to take out a personal loan for $8,000 with an interest rate of 11%. This experience has been very lack-luster for me, and many of my fellow classmates feel the same. I am extremely hesitant to ever recommend Trilogy Education Services for coding bootcamps, and more seriously question why the University of Texas would put their highly reputed name on a mediocre at best external education service program.

Official Response from UT Austin Boot Camps

Thank you for your feedback, Meg. As you noted, the UT Austin Center for Professional Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer UT Austin Coding Boot Camp. UT Austin is deeply involved in the curriculum, instructor selection,... Read More

We regret your cohort has undergone unexpected changes in instructors and understand that this has greatly impacted your experience. We know not all teaching styles will resonate with every individual and adjusting to new teaching methods can be difficult. We hope you are enjoying your current instructor and are truly benefiting from his valuable instructional guidance.

While our curriculum is regularly updated based on market demand, we want individuals to graduate with the necessary skills to quickly learn new frameworks and languages on their own, especially as the technical job market is always changing. Apart from one project work day we had to host remotely due to WiFi issues on campus, classes have been rescheduled and corrected. As of last week, all issues relating to BCS have been resolved. Our team is continually updating our course material and instructional support to ensure students have the best learning experience possible, so we truly appreciate your input.

This is a challenging course, and as such we offer several means of support. Our instructors hold office hours before and after each class to provide 1:1 support, along with weekly walk-throughs to reinforce prior concepts and expand upon upcoming topics. We do our best to accommodate requests for any students who may require supplementary assistance through our free tutoring network. All classes are also recorded so that individuals can access and refer back to any lesson they need to further review the material. We will continue working with you to provide any additional support.

We sincerely care about each one of our students and as you near the end of your course, we would welcome any other suggestions you may have to further improve your experience. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (512) 387-5789. We wish you all the best as you continue to work hard towards completing the program. — UT Austin Boot Camps Team

"Great program if you have external resources"

The first half of the course was front-end heavy (html, css, jQuery) and I felt like this section had great course materials that were thorough. However, the second half of the class was not as strong. Some of the course materials, especially for React,... Read More

One of the reasons I chose the UT course over other local bootcamps was the fact that they advertised tech companies that they were affiliated with. They presented this as if we would get contacts from these companies but I reached out to one company who had no idea they were still being used in the bootcamp's marketing. We didn't have career support until the last few weeks of the course when a new career counselor was hired and even then we only received a couple leads for positions that could not be found on the basic job posting search engines. We had a resume workshop with information that seemed out-dated and wasn't specific to resumes for tech positions. The TAs were great and were extremely helpful throughout the course and even after.

We received feedback on our first couple homework assignments but code reviews would have been extremely helpful for the later material. This course gave me a good foundation for front-end coding but I had to rely heavily on external sources for the rest of the material.

The Coding Bootcamp at UT Austin is a data-driven program. Based on market conditions, we actively adjust the curriculum to best serve the long-term needs of our students and equip them with in-demand skills. We understand you would have liked to spend more time focusing on React or PHP. We do our best to communicate to students that because we cover a full-stack, topics are introduced at a higher level in class, after which students are expected to dive in and continue gaining a deeper understanding outside of class. Our program prides itself on teaching how to learn, providing a strong foundation students can use to master additional programming languages post-graduation. This helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach, a key skill needed in a developer’s career. However, we are constantly working on improving our curriculum to ensure students are learning the most valuable technologies, and it is our goal to ensure that our materials are current and accurate—so we truly appreciate you sharing this feedback. We're glad to hear that you found your TAs to be adept and helpful throughout your time in the program.

Our professional development services are built on the principle of empowerment, and our career services team strives to be clear about expectations. While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we empower them the best we can with the necessary tools and support for entering the job market, including resume support, portfolio reviews, 1:1 coaching, and technical interview training. Some examples of previous companies who have attended tech panels or demo days for past cohorts include Apex Systems, Cisco, Google, and Charles Schwab. Our career services offering is frequently updated to improve our ability to equip students for the job search, and with that, our relationships with various companies can also change over time. We do apologize if the employer component of our career services was unclear prior to your starting the program. We know job seeking is hard and often a full-time job in itself, which is why we encourage students to submit a large number of quality applications on a weekly basis to maximize their professional networking and increase the possibilities of securing a well-matched position. -UT Austin Boot Camps

"Absolutely Fantastic!"

I was a graduate from the first cohort at the University of Texas and could not be more pleased with the experience. As my skills and experience level have expanded, I have developed an even deeper appreciation for this bootcamp.

What distinguishes this... Read More

Anything else? Yes. All bootcamps are focused on providing a "practical and applicable" skillset, but this curriculum insists that students understand what is happening on a fundamental level. The focus is on not just developing skills that are applicable today, but building a skillset that sets you up for success in two, five, ten years.

Is it easy? Ha! Come in expecting to work. This is a challenging program. The pace is fast. The workload is heavy. Expectations are high. But hey, if it was easy everyone would do it. If you are willing to work, there is a support system that will get you to the finish line!

Why did you choose this program? Two reasons. Number one, I'm a sucker for the University of Texas brand. In this day and age of Trump University and fly by night "job training programs" I wanted something that I knew was going to be there, and not some charleton that was going to cash my check and dissapear. I knew the University of Texas would demand nothing but the highest standards.

Number two, the part time aspect. I was not in a position to drop 10k+ on a bootcamp program, quit my job, wait three months and hope there was an income waiting for me at the end. This program provided me with the opportunity to keep my job while studying and job searching. Was that easy? No, but if it was easy everyone would do it.

We hope you’re proud of all of the hard work you put into completing this program. We wish you nothing but the best moving forward.
