    I have been taking the UI Design course since Nov 2021. It only has been 3 months now but I’m learning tons about UI Design. Their curriculum totally makes sense to me and it comes in very smoothly to my head. My tutor and mentor are awesome people who give me pin point advices and suggestions. When I have any questions regarding my tooling issue, UX, UI, and career, they are the people come up to my mind first now and they are very reliable answering my questions. 
    I am satisfied with this course so far and I can’t wait for more.

    My experience overall was great. I’ve learned so much not only about UX, but the industry as a whole and my potential career path as a new designer on 2022. 

    Learning The Tools:
    Although my experience was smooth and progressed in a good linear fashion, I can see how it may be slightly different for some others. For context, I came into the program with some prior knowledge about the various tools used to create the fancy phone mock-ups and animations. For a completely new person, there might be a learning curve as CF doesn’t go too in-depth on how these programs can be used. 

    Advice For New Students:
    Essentially what I’m getting at is that, you have to do research outside of what CF actually teaches. Be proactive in expanding your learning on top of each section. The good thing is they provide many links in each task to expand your knowledge. And I highly recommend you read each one. And on top of that watch CF’s YouTube videos. 

    Course Critique For CF:
    I don’t have many but the main one has to be with the example project within the course “Fisherly”. It seemed very “half done”. Each example deliverable didn’t seem like it would pass in a real world situation. Maybe it was purposefully simplified to not overwhelm students. But In my opinion, I want to see a seasoned designer genuinely go through the process of making a project that they actually put on their portfolio. Just so that I understand what a well done case study actually looks like, instead of having to find my own examples online. 

    Overall: 
    Don’t be afraid of this review, the positives I have for this course heavily out way the critiques. In all honesty the community and support system within CF are top tier and can make your experience 10x better if you’re proactive.

    I recently started out the Data Analytics course with Careerfoundry. From the beginning until now[I'm in the middle of the course] I always felt well taken care of, either by my Student Advisors, my Tutor especially and my Mentor as well as other Students within the Community. I started with near to no knowledge about Dara Analysis and 3 month in the course im analysing Data in Excel, creating visualizations in Tableau and prepare presentations. Im overall happy about that I made the decision to go with Careerfoundry!

    I think the CareerFoundry's UX course is great. The self-learning course content is highly relevant and the support from the Tutors and Mentors is very helpful in staying motivated. There is also a large student community so connecting with students with who'm you can collaborate with on tasks and ask general questions makes the learning experience more enjoyable.

    I was really hyped about the beginning, and it was amazing. I started first as a private student, but then I got Buildungsgutschein (if you are unemployed and live in Germany, check it out!) and started again, but I could resubmitted tasks that are done so far (which is cool). But I was assigned to another Tutor and Mentor.
    So the biggest advantage of CF is that it has 2 (later 3) persons that are in constant contact with you: your tutor, mentor and career specialist(that comes later, after you've done 51% of the course). I really really really love my mentor. She is so funny and full of great advices and I think we just flipped. She is telling me about the job preparation, what can I improve, what should I be relaxed about, what can I read/listen to/watch. Amazing person, who always makes my day! 
    And tutor, who I'm in okay relationship. 
    You have 6 achievements, which are divided into several tasks (7-11). They can require from 1-3h until 7-9h to be done. 
    All in all, I like it because I am the one responsible for the time management, for how I'm gonna organize my day, studies, breaks. I really love that. And also, I've learn so much not only about UX but about myself too. 
    The con can be that you are paired with a person that is not an inspiring one to you. But even that you can manage- either say it to Student Advisor (they are there to make everything flow easily) or change your point of view/ expectations. 
    All in all, I would recommended! For sure.

    I am halfway into the course and loving the experience so far! The big emphasis on React during the course, also influenced my decision a lot, as it was something I wanted to learn for a long time. Was also looking for a longer Bootcamp (no 2/3 months) so CareerFoundry was the perfect match :) I would recommend it!

    The course was great! I learned so much. The help from my tutor and mentor was invaluable, as well as the career / job preparation coaching. I particularly loved how many of the tasks were structured very similarly as they would in a "real live" job scenario, starting with user stories, to creating kanban boards etc.

    I'm currently enrolled in CareerFoundry's full stack web development program. All of the learning is on-demand, and you are provided a tutor to review daily tasks and a mentor to review projects and have regular Skype calls with. The program is flexible, so you can work whatever hours you want at whatever pace you want, which is the big draw for me. I'm half-way through and am satisfied with the skills that the program is developing in me. I haven't yet started my job search so I cannot comment on the job assistance.

    I am super happy I was able to take the UX Immersive course with a Bildungsgutschein from the german jobcenter. During the course you work on two portfolio projects, one is short to get an overview about the process and one is more detailed. This helped me a lot to practice UX methods and get confident with different software. You get assigned to a Tutor and a Mentor who help with tasks, software and provide support when you get stuck. There is also a Career spezialist to prepare for the job application phase and a slack community to reach out for various questions. I would highly recommend school!

    CareerFoundry has been an engaging and fun experience. The content is highly relevant and easy to do self-directed. I appreciate the examples of student work they include which help me understand if I'm on the right path. In addition, every task is working towards something that could be in a portfolio but broken up into small chunks so that it is not overwhelming and helps keep you motivated to keep working. The tutors and mentor have been amazing! They respond to my questions quickly and give detailed feedback. I recommend CareerFoundry to anyone due to the support, curriculum, and the fact that is all comes at an affordable price that is hard to beat.

Thanks!
