To apply for the programs, students should have access to a computer and an internet connection, and an interest in the topic they are planning to study.

All students will graduate with projects they can show to potential employers to get their new careers off and running. Web development students will create a simple portfolio website and code a NoSQL database-driven React app. UX Design students work on a re-design of a web-based app, which includes creating user personas and a UX Design portfolio. UI students will redesign the user interface for one site and built a marketable portfolio that includes the UI for four apps. Students have access to Career Advisors who provide tailored coaching for job hunting and interviewing. Students who do not land a job within 180 days of graduating may be eligible to get a refund.

    I started with the UX Design Course at the end of may and just finished the Fundamentals Course - I love the system. I can work in my own pace, I can add details if I want and there is enough time, there are bonus tasks for those who are very ambitous and you always get great support from Tutor and Mentor mixed up with several tips for further lecture. 

    Can only recommend it and am looking forward to dive into the Immersion Course next week!

    After doing a lot of research on UX boot camps I settled on Career Foundry for the price and because I could complete the course at my own pace. My tutor and mentor have been very helpful and supportive through my learning and I feel like I’m getting a very hands-on approach to all aspects of the design process. Would recommend!

    Don't hesitate to enroll! It's the BEST decision you can make and the best online UI program out there on the web. Several companies group UX and UI as the same thing and raise the price for their academies and instruction. When you complete the UI course along with the Job Training you are offered a money back guarantee if you do not obtain a job or get a certain number of free lance hours. Career Foundry makes sure your online presence, LinkedIn, Portfilio, and Resume are the best they can be. They guide you through practice interviews and sample questions. I took a course on DesignLab and General Assembly and the help factor was not as complete and organized as CF. You have advisors, tutors, and mentors that faciliate your journey through the course. General Assembly costs much more as well and you get much less. Seriously sign up with CF and take the challenge to build your career to greater heights.

    I'm doing the Ui Design Course with Carreerfoundry. I was thinking a lot about doing it because I'm a Graphic Designer and I was a bit worried if I wouldn't learn to much. But the course offers a lot of specific content and it is well structured, with a lot of task to practice the new knowledge. If you're interested in UI, I think it's a good option!

    CareerFoundry has impressed me with their ability to transcend the digital divide with general human care. My regular encounters with mentor, tutor, career specialist are all stellar and SO helpful. What really impressed me is the speedy and responsive feedback from the curriculum team anytime I’ve brought up an issue. I do miss being around other creatives in person but I have no doubts my education with CF will lead to my quick hiring on a great team.

    I took the "Certified UX Designer" course from July 2018 to June 2019. It included UX Fundamentals, UX Immersion, and a specialization -- I took Frontend Development for Designers. I also took the Job Prep course. The support network is great (great Slack community!) and the tutors and mentors are helpful and very friendly.

    The UX course material was well-written and easy to follow. However, the time estimates they put on courses I found to be way off for the meatier assignments as did many other students judging from what they said in Slack.

    I feel like improvements could be made in the Frontend for Designers part of the course. When I took it, it had just been re-written. I found it difficult to follow, too much information was given in exercises (I'm thinking of the JavaScript exercise here), and one or two of the tasks felt like they had nothing to do with the material presented in the exercise. It very well could have just been me (since I didn't get much sleep while taking this course and working two jobs!) but at least one other student said the same thing and found this particular part of the course difficult.

    I would not recommend taking this course if you work two jobs. I know your goal is to get to a point where you don't have to work two jobs, but you'll spend every waking hour either working or studying and you will lose a lot of sleep over this, which is not healthy. They've designed it so it should be manageable with 20 hours a week of study, but you will need way more than that. If you think 20 hours is manageable, add 10-15 more hours onto that and think twice before you sign up. Also, when you get halfway through your specialization, you can start the Job Prep course. For me, that was tough because I had to add that coursework on top of the coursework I was already doing for my specialization and my two jobs! 

    I would suggest a slower track for people in my situation (i.e. stuck between a rock and a hard place because they have to work two jobs to make ends meet and are stuck because they don't have time to upskill so they can get a better job and don't have to work two jobs!) so they can have longer to finish the course.

    Having said all that, I feel like this experience has given me the knowledge and tools I need to pursue a career in UX Design. I know I have a very strong network of fellow students, alumni, and mentors I can reach out to with any questions, concerns, or project ideas from now on and that is incredibly valuable! Despite everything, I have truly enjoyed my experience with CareerFoundry.

    I recently completed my Careerfoundry UX Immersion course, and looking back, I was overwhelmed by how far I had come and how much I had learned in a small amount of time. I am now equipped with all of the knowledge and skills I need in order to start work as a UX Designer, as well as a portfolio displaying the entire design process.
    The simple, informative and practical exercises were easy to follow, and when I had any doubts or issues I was able to contact my tutor via chat to get help.
    My tutor and mentor were very supportive throughout my time at Careerfoundry. As a waitress with no design / technology background, I was a bit intimidated by all of the new information, but my tutor and mentor gave me encouraging feedback throughout and helped me to feel confident about my work.

    I think Careerfoundry UX Immersion course is great for anyone wishing to change careers or learn more about ux design because it is comprehensive and covers every aspect of user experience design.

    I highly recommend it!

    I took a full certified ux design courses, which took me a whole year to finish (including career prep courses). I switched my career and had no design background at all, but I managed to land a ux job within 3 months after graduation. I have to say that CareerFoundry provides a lot of great foundation knowledge for ux design and the teachers are very nice.  My tutor was Jonny who gave me great advice and encouragements during my UX studies, and my mentor Leah who mentored me through my “UI for UX” specialization courses. She is always there for me even when the courses are finished. When I was about to graduate , she even gave me some personal projects to do and it helped me build my portfolio with real clients.  My career advisor Sami always reached out to me and taught me many useful tips about interviewing and job searching. CareerFoundry also has a platform on slack so all students and teachers can communicate there freely admins support each other. However, only focus on the Curriculum is not enough, students might end up having 2-3 projects on the portfolio after graduation from CareerFoundry, but in real world, companies want to see some projects with real clients. If anyone who wants to get a job after graduaiton, he needs to work hard and improves skills after school, looks for clients to work on real projects.  and sacrifices his leisure time. CareerFoundry also advised what to do after graduation. They have done the best they can and I’m glad and grateful that through CF I become a real designer.

    I had a lot of fun with the course. It's really engaging and motivating. I was worrying that doing e-learning would be hard but since the course is really practical it was actually quite easy for me to stay focused. I would recommend it to everybody who wants to get some insights into the UX.

    The UX course I made at CareerFoundry was a great experience for me. When I started the Course, I was a little bit skeptical about the online learning method but after I completed the first task, I observed that the structure it's very well done and it teaching me on a logical and easy to understand way. The exercises are building on each other so I observed automatically when I misunderstood a part of the subject. During the course, I observed the possibilities, I will have after completing it, that was also a great motivator for me. 

    My Advisor, Mentor, and Tutor helped me a lot with good tips and tricks. They judge my tasks anytime honestly and objectively.  

    I'm happy about the decision to make this course and I'm proud to be able to tell that I'm a UX Designer with a lot of skills that will help me in my future career.

    Thank's CareerFoundry!

    I am a current student on Online UI design course. Online education fits in my life just perfect. The course content is easy and interesting to read and the team is very knowledgeable. 
    The team never leave you alone and help you on your way. I got a tutor who responds on my submission super fast, giving me very detailed feedback about my work so I can move on. Also, I got an experienced and knowledgeable Mentor who helps me with my achievements. His feedback helps me to polish my portfolio so It looks stunning for the potential employers. I got my personal career specialist who helps me with my career change and student advisor who helps me if I have any questions about the studying process. 
    AND what is very important for me - CareerFoundry guaranty the job placement within 6 months! Isn't it amazing? But, to be honest, the UI course is so voluminous and Job Preparation course is so useful, so I am more than sure at the end of the course I can find a job easily because I will have a strong resume and outstanding portfolio. 
    I highly recommend this course!

    So I took the UI course. It was very informative, well structured and went very well with all the support I had throughout the course with my mentor, tutor, career advisor and the student advisors. I came across very cool people over on slack. It gave me motivation to be as good as those amazing designers over there. All in all, take this course yesterday! 😁

    After working in careers I enjoyed but didn't feel challenged by, I decided to make the switch to UX design.  A thorough researcher, I looked around a lot before deciding on Career Foundry.  I'm really glad I did for a number of reasons.  

    Firstly, their curriculum is on point.  Each lesson targets diverse, but vital topics in UX.  It's project-based so you end up building your portfolio as you go, and most importantly, they've included a job preparation course that I honestly think anyone - regardless of whether they're in UX or not - should have access to as it's very psychology-based and works to guide you to your true job purpose and goals.

    Overall, it's been a wonderful experience and I'm confident that when I finish I will have no problem finding a job in UX with the skills I've already acquired.

    Hi! I just wanna say that this is one of the major decisions I've done in my life to study again at age 24 when some of my friends are already at the peak of their career. Careerfoundry helped my by equipping me with the education I needed and made sure that I get on track with the help of a Mentor and Tutor. Their Mentos and Tutors are really great and patient which is what you need when you get into a tech course because a lot of times you'll feel stuck and down but with their help you'll get to the finish line.

    I highly recommend the course, It's packed with information but they deliver it in an easily digestible way and without it feeling overwhelming, the course as a task for every exercise you complete ensuring that you learn by actually doing instead of just reading. My instructors were great, they have helped across my journey, they provided great information on what I was doing and how to improve and sources to learn more from. The only reason I gave curriculum 4 stars, is because I would've liked to see more videos, the course still has some. All in all, it's a great course!

    I'm taking the UI Design course, with no experience in design and no UX/Graphic design background. So far, i feel confident to say that this course has been one of the best structured, with an excellent updated content wich motivates me to stay focused to keep learning my new skills. 
    The tutor is correct, he answers all the questions i have. One big plus is that he is on the same timezone than me, so there are no big delays when submiting my task to review.
    I have been making Skype calls with my assigned mentor regullarly, and everytime we talk i get to understand how this industry works receiving great advices from him.
    I put a lot of time on the course, but that's because i like. I mean the content is catchy! You feel like always wanting to put more effort on your task and submit the best exercise you can. I discovered a new passion: UI Design.
    I already started the job prep course, but i'm on the first lessons, so can't relate about that

    Deciding which online web development course to go with was extremly difficult as ther was so many to choose from. I did my homework and I’m proud to say that I couldn’t have made a better decision choosing CareerFoundry. The course is put together well and extremely informative, and the people they have, advising, mentoring, and tutoring are absolutely amazing! It is beyond evident that the school and people truly care about you understanding and implementing the material yourself. I’m extremely satisfied with my choice for an online web development course and would highly recommend them! 

Thanks!
