Congratulations on your new job! Where will you be working?

Thanks! I’ll be starting my new job as a freelance programmer this week. I’ll be working with JavaScript web development for Facebook AR and PHP programming for WordPress - I’m very excited!

What were you doing before signing up for our course?

Before learning to code, I worked in a laundrette, making deliveries. However, I wasn’t happy there and wanted to make a change. I heard the advertisement for Ubiqum Code Academy on the radio, which sparked my interest so I decided to look into what doing a coding bootcamp entailed.

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

I was a bit fed up with the job as there were no opportunities for advancement and I wasn’t working towards any goals - I felt very stagnant. When considering my future career, learning to code seemed like the best option for me. I wanted to find something fulfilling and I saw that coding could well be the right route to take.

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

I didn’t really know much about coding before Ubiqum; I had looked up the very basics, but had no knowledge of how to program. By taking the Full Stack Developer course, I hoped to learn the technical skills that would improve my opportunities and advance my career.

Why did Ubiqum stand out as the best choice?

I had previously started a university degree in Psychology but didn’t end up completing the course because the method of teaching wasn’t right for me. On the contrary, Ubiqum Code Academy stood out because of their highly practical Learn by Doing methodology as I felt this would be a more effective way to learn.

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

My experience with traditional learning models wasn’t very effective, so when I started learning on the Web Development course, I found Ubiqum's Learn by Doing methodology to be just the opposite. I really felt like I was actually learning!

How helpful did you find the Career Placement service?

I found the services offered by the Career Placement team very helpful. I finished the course three weeks ago and I already have a new job. Prior to this, I was also invited to be interviewed at four different companies, all of which came about after attending Ubiqum’s week-long Career Placement program. Their help with building a CV was very valuable as they helped me outline my abilities in a way that made me stand out from the competition.

Why would you recommend Ubiqum Code Academy?

I would definitely recommend Ubiqum, especially to people from similar backgrounds to me. If you want to try something new, Ubiqum is a great place to start. Not only do they provide very good training through the Learn by Doing methodology, they also have the Career Placement team to help you find a job once the course is complete. I had never had an interview with an IT company before, which is very different to other industry interview processes. The Career Placement team helped me prepare what to say and made me feel confident about the interview process.
