"Gave me the skills to launch my own startup"

This course gave me the experience of conquering setbacks and helped me to instil a strong growth mindset. The curriculum at the time was focussed on Ruby on Rails which allowed me to quickly prototype my final project (a clone of AirBnb). Within a month... Read More

Now Accelerate's curriculum is focussed on teaching the fundamentals of HTML, CSS and JavaScript, before diving deep into Node JS (back-end framework), Angular and React (front-end frameworks). This is the same stack which I use for clients projects in our web dev agency, so the technology that's being taught is very relevant for today's market.

The teaching style is focussed around the concept of learning-to-learn emphasising hands-on learning. In order to maximise the experience you'll need to be diligent and be hungry to learn throughout the course.

To me, Accelerate is a company that learns quickly and continually improves its product in order to better serve its students. I'd recommend it to anyone who has a strong desire and aptitude to learn how to code.

"A Brilliant Insight into the UX Process"

Accelerate's UX/PM Course really opened my eyes to new ways of thinking, revealing the many processes that go into creating a great user experience. Coming from a non-business background, the course was really useful (and accessible) in breaking down... Read More

Our instructor, April, clearly knew what she was doing, and struck a great balance between teaching us the information and allowing us to discover it ourselves in a super hands-on curriculum. What was also incredibly beneficial was that with a small class, students were able to tailor what we were learning to our own fields (with April's help).

I’d really recommend this course to anyone looking to boost their understanding of the many ways in which consumers engage with a product (whether that be a website, a brand etc.)

"The best digital marketing course in Hong Kong"

I took this course because I had recently transitioned to a new role and wanted to level up my marketing skills. Up until the start of this course I had been self-taught.

I'll admit that after the first session I thought, meh, I know all this stuff. Maybe... Read More

The course was awesome. The level of engagement between our Instructor (Xavier) and the class was great. We had a small group which meant we could all contribute. The diversity in the group really added to the level of depth and breadth in the content covered.

In the final week, I was able to put together a solid 30, 60 and 90 day roadmap on how I would achieve my ambitious company targets. This might seem simple, but its not something I would have been capable of envisioning before taking the course.

Our course instructor, Xavier was a big part of the value I got from the course. He clearly knows his stuff, and lives and breathes marketing. He did an awesome job of teaching us the fundementals of marketing.

I will also add one last point about the Accelerate team. Its clear to me that these guys are passionate about what they do. They are committed to their vision and I'm definitely going to sign up for more of their courses.

"It has changed where I am today and what I am doing"

This course has provided me with the right tools to transition from a non-tech job to a developer role. I had previously tried to study and practice coding and data science on my own, but after close to a year of trying I felt I was nowhere near my initial... Read More

The main benefits I got from this course were:

-- Affordability & Accountability on the part of the Bootcamp. It was a lot easier to start on this bootcamp than any other available at that moment. And it was very important for me that I wouldn’t pay for something that I would not use eventually – I only pay for the course if I get a job. If I don’t get a job in the next 6 months, then I don’t have to pay.

-- Curriculum. Since the first cohort, which I was part of, Accelerate has greatly improved their curriculum with an in-house study plan that focuses on Node, which is also more in demand presently. As part of the first batch of graduates, I had access to the new curriculum and hence the rating is based on it.

-- Continuous Support. After the course has ended I was not left to drift on my own but I was given support on how to improve my portfolio, presentation and also find a job. I tried to apply on my own to dozens of jobs, but I was only considered and interviewed for positions on Accelerate’s referral. Their credibility helps a lot in hiring.

-- Coding environment. Honestly, it’s so distracting to learn or work at home and also motivationally exhausting to do so. Kudos to those who can organize themselves on their own and do it. For me it was a great advantage to be in a workplace environment and surrounded with other people studying exactly the same thing. This way I knew my struggles were no greater or smaller than others’ and I could communicate in real time with other students and instructors for any issues that I encounter while coding.

"Good choice if you don't have lots of cash to spend"

The program is still relatively new but I found it useful to be coming in and working on coding everyday with other students and the instructors. They also offer some part-time courses for their full-time students on other subjects like data science.
