    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!

    II enjoyed doing the CareerFoundry course...the fact that they made us do projects to learn the concepts served the purpose of better retention. The only drawback I would say is, certain sections could have been explained and broken down better for students who’ve never worked with Design software; such as using a UI kit to finish your prototypes and make them look professional. Nevertheless the tutor and instructor were very helpful and helped me continuously improve my designs.

    Career Foundry course is a very worthy investment if you wish to change your career or just upskill yourself. I found the UX Designer course content simple, straightforward and totally manageable along with my freelancing job. The content is often supported by video demonstrations that makes the content more understandable and interesting to learn. Career Foundry online course content as well as the tutors and mentors regulalry send you extra reading materials which is very helpful. The Tutors and Mentors are extremely helpful and supportive in your mission of learning. I have found the student advisors very prompt in their responses and are always eager to make your transition into your new chosen field very smooth. I would highly recommend Career Foundry.

    This course has been challenging and time intensive but completely worth it! I'm learning so much and even applying the principles at my current job.

    The support from CareerFoundry has been amazing from the time I started looking into UX design courses. My tutor Jonny has been the most supportive - he responds quickly and his feedback is extremely helpful and thorough each assignment.

    Career Foundry provides a solid foundation in UX methodologies and practice. If you are lucky, you'll get an amazing mentor like Tina, whose expertise and support are truly stellar. The Slack platform is a great way to connect with peers, and get feedback and help with projects.

    The coursework has been challenging but manageable while working and balancing graduate school. Overall, this program will give you what you need to create a compelling UX portfolio and find a job you love (more on that hopefully soon!)

    Currently in the first month of the UX Design course. When I was looking around for a UX course, I knew that I wanted a project-base curriculum, which CF offers.  The program is set up so that you have access to a mentor and tutor, and I've already met with my mentor twice and interacted with my tutor about ~10 times.  They're responsive and I'm always grateful for all the in-depth, immediate responses I've gotten from them every time I shot them a message.  The CF platform is full of supports, and they also offer a Slack channel where students can help each other.  I've always had positive interactions with other students so far.  While I do wish I could collaborate with other students more (as I probably would in a in-person course), I think with all of the different avenues they offer for communication (chat bars + Slack), it can be accomplished with a bit more effort.

    All in all, after over a year of being indecisive with all of the differnet courses out there, CF finally felt like a perfect fit.

    I love the fact that careerfoundry is honest and transparent about  how they teach and about the high quality of the study materials. They also offer reading access to their other courses. The UX Designer course is challenging as you need to complete 2-3 tasks a week and some tasks demands the student to learn a program like sketch within a week. However, the mentor and tutors always reply on time and give valueable insights. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to change their career or to become a specialist.

    Enrolling in the Career Foundry UX Immersion is one of the best decisions I have made in a very long time! The program is extremely well structured, organized and full of information about the UX/UI industry. On completion of the UX Design Immersion I was able to have two substantial case studies that I am very happy with. I definitely put a lot of effort into the Fundamentals course in the beginning so I was able to build a strong foundation before I started the Immersion. Also- after completion of the Immersion and with the benefit of everything I  learned during the program, I revisited my Fundamentals project and was able to bring it up to a much higher level. I also feel confident about creating more studies on my own, as the CF curriculum provided me with such a strong understanding of research methods and best practices.

    Of course the program is online, and depends completely upon the self discipline and tenacity of the student. One must be earnestly committed and work hard to see results. I found the platform to be very well organized and it was easy for me to understand what was expected. In addition to explanations and examples, it was great to have online references and articles which also helped with the learning experience. The assignments are clear and explicit and build upon each other logically to create a robust case study project.

    My tutor Terri Rodriguez was wonderful, and always there if I need to ask her a question. Her responses were always within 24 hours, usually much quicker. She was encouraging, inspirational and definitely made me feel supported. Dana Lynn was my mentor and always offered  honest clear feedback. She truly helped clarify things for me when I had questions and provided authentic encouragement. Dana has a rich background in both UX and visual design so her feedback was very helpful for me on multiple levels. I am so grateful to this great team!

    After this wonderful experience, I am looking forward to the UI Design and Voice Specializations! 

    Thanks CareerFoundry!

    Tutor and mentors are very good at breaking down your assignments and showcasing weaknesses and strengths. Sessions provide great constructive criticism with clear ways of improving. Only caveat of the course is that you do have a time limit to complete assignments and if you go over you will need to request an extension and pay more. But the site breaks down completion date very well so that you can plan the pace you need to finish the course. 

Thanks!
