Brightwood College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
For overall experiences at this school, I would give 3 out of 5 stars. I enrolled in Medical Assistant course, this school has offered all new students for 21 days provisional period to try-out. If you dont like it (just like me) you can bail without any student loans applied. So, I gave it a try since some of the reviews in here are totally opposite. I have no medical background and learning something new was tough, but it would have been easier if the school had given me cleared prints out or lend me some textbooks. Although, I understand that the school tends to be online and visual learning base but some power point pictures and texts are not cleared enough especially when you need to learn the details of skins layers (Integumentary System) Also, PowerPoint presentation left out too many details. I found out that I was struggled while doing in-class assignment or homework; I most relied on Google search. However, I decided not to continue the course, solely on my personal preferences. Ive seen many students happy about the class and decided to continue. For me, I would rather spend less than $15K for MA certificate.
This is a great college I'd recommend this college to more people because the study is legit also the preparation gor the study is very well i would say the building is also in a great environmental area I would have to say the staff and instructors are very nice as well
I have been here at Brightwood College for 5 months and it has been great. I have attended 6 different college or universities. This campus in Corpus Christi has been the best at communicating with me. The men who got me started, J and D, were great at getting the information that I needed to me so I could decide whether or not to start. T., is the lady who referred me here, I can't thank her enough. The teachers, all, have many years of experience out in the field and freely share their experiences with the class. The classrooms here real tools that you need to practice what we will be doing. I am also pleased with the front office staff. Thank you to all at Brightwood College.
Brightwood is a good college , even though I have to drive 1 hr from home, but I have learned a lot since Ive been enrolled!!! Teachers are great amd staff too, they are very helpful and always find a way to make you achieve you goal..... in my opinion its a good school. Thanks bye
If i could give this school negative stars i would. Nothing but uneducated teachers who teach you incorrect information. Very rude to the students. Very unorganized and financial aid/ funding has no idea what they are doing at all. I feel robbed out of my money for the horrible education i have received. I relied on google and teaching myself from a textbook because all my teacher did was read from the book. I will NEVER have anything good to say about this school and neither will any of my classmates. We all have had a horrible experience and regret ever considering this school.
The Military Student Center for veterans receiving MGI or Vocational Rehab financial aid assistance, has terrible customer service. Two gentlemen who work at the Military Student Center, Garry Roberts and Morris Jones were not only not helpful, but wrote a highly inappropriate and unprofessional email to my VA case worker on a he said/she said basis that resulted in my withdrawal from the program. As a student and veteran, I highly discourage any other people seeking to enter any program to reconsider not only the curriculum but the best treatment any student paying for their education to look at all the other institutions and universities that offer a much better education and customer service to their students. Brightwood college is overpriced education with very poor and limited success at retaining quality students.
Great College and Friendly staff. The school is at a great location and the schedule is flexable. I was able to attend college and work my part time job at the same time. It only took me 9 months to finnish and get a job at a pediatrics office after I graduated. I would recommend Brightwood College to family and friends.
Really loved the teachers as they knew their stuff and cared about the students. Career department was really helpful and I got hired right off my externship. I love the field that I am in and I would definitely recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a career fast.
1st quarter was great and I had no trouble but once we went on to 2nd quarter it all went to hell. They hired 2 new instructors that did not have experience teaching or even knew what they were talking about, both of them were just reading out of the book or other past teachers notes from the year before. One teacher had a very thick accent and she was very hard to understand and kept mispronouncing the words. The other teacher that taught pharmacology (which is a very important subject) was asking the students to find the answers to other students questions because she did not know, her "lecture" was just having us highlight what was highlighted in her book. All in all everything is just going down hill from there and lots of students in my quarter are not happy but we are stuck having to go through with all this until we graduate because then all this time and effort will be wasted. The dean of our school said that if we do not complete the program then they will not release our credits of the classes we have already completed to other schools. Everyone at that school is very unorganized and contradict everything they say.
I did not receive in depth classroom knowledge. The externship was a big joke literally. The certification exam thats included in the tuition is not honored by most companies. AAPCs certification Coding exam is three hundred dollars, plus $100 for the membership fee, etc, and its not included in the tuition. Youre better off enrolling into a Community College. Oh and did I mention Im still unemployed?
