    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!

Thanks!
