What were you doing before signing up for our course?

Before the course I had spent a few months looking for a job. Even though I had a degree in mathematics and some programming experience, it still wasn’t enough to get a job in data analytics. I’d carried out some small machine learning projects myself but the feedback after interviews was always that I didn’t have enough real world experience.

Why did it seem like the right moment in your life to sign up for the course?

I seriously considered doing a masters but I was very concerned that after a year and €10,000, employers would still tell me that I didn’t have the right experience. When I found Ubiqum and saw that the course was based around real life projects I knew this was the right course for me.

What were your expectations/what were you hoping to get out of it?

I already had programming experience and was confident doing projects on my own so the main thing I wanted was exposure to real projects and to be able to talk to mentors who knew how things were actually done in practice. Of course, the main thing I wanted was a job at the end of the course. And that happened immediately after completing it.

What was your main concern before starting?

I had no real concerns since I had already been working on programming projects alone so I knew I would be able to learn independently. I also wasn’t concerned about my job prospects since Ubiqum offered a 50/50 payment plan where you only pay the remaining 50% of the fees when you find a job. I knew that a business would never offer this deal if people weren’t getting jobs after completing the course.

Why did Ubiqum stand out as the best choice?

It is one of the only data analytics courses that has employment as its top priority. I had no interest in learning for the sake of learning, I needed a job and I only wanted to work on things that would serve that goal. It is also a longer course compared to other coding bootcamp style courses. I felt that courses that were only 10 or 12 weeks long were probably too short to be effective, I wanted something slightly more in-depth.

Do you think our Learn by Doing methodology has been effective?

Yes, the course ended on a Friday and I had a job offer by the following Wednesday evening. In now making good use of everything I learned in my new job.

How helpful did you find the Career Placement service?

I was looking for a job outside of Spain, so it wasn’t as useful to me compared to some people. However, it was useful to get feedback on my CV.

Why would you recommend Ubiqum?

I’d recommend Ubiqum for its employment focused, learn by doing approach.
Aside from the skills you learn, the projects you do look good on your CV and give you plenty to talk about in an interview.

Typically, to graduate from a university or academy takes four years. They do teach you many things, but if someone wants to become a programmer, this is a much faster and effective way to get there.
