    Simply put, CareerFoundry's UX Design course is a great way to build a solid foundation in User Experience Design. Having recently graduated university with a degree unrelated to UX, I had a desire to learn the fundamentals and the CareerFoundry course has made me feel like I'm learning the necessary skills and becoming equipped with the tools needed to enter the industry.

    The course is well structured but could improve on certain aspects:
    • the first trial period or BootCamp is too fast to make a good work out of it. You rush in between things, 3 weeks on working days are 15 days. The lesson and the task are not in-depth, but then the result must be. In my opinion, the tutor needs things as they should be and not as "easily" explained in the short lesson before the tasks.
    • The help desk never really helped me
    • More realistic times for task. It says it can take up to 3 days to do a task but still, the progress shows you you can accomplish 3 tasks a week. 
    • Interview questions and presentations instead of videos made with real people.
    • Interaction with other students made monthly, maybe some extra classes online or something not to be always answering your own questions.

    Pretty Good things are:

    • Tutor and mentor access and help
    • Overall classes content
    • Slack Community
    • Examples of tasks accepted before yours
    • Job preparation course

    I am still currently in the design program, however, I could not be more then pleased with it overall. I feel I have learn a lot just within these past 4 months and it works with my schedule. It's self-project based with a deadline, but I was feeling overwhelmed with work and started to trail behind a little and my tutor kept my spirits up and the student advisors even helped me out with extensions. I am excited to explore more that adds to my knowledge and portfolio and see where things lead towards the end of the program!

    I have a learnt a lot from currently studying with Career Foundry so far. The course content and the support from Tutor and Mentor are amazing and helpful. 
     
    The only thing is it would've be helpful if I had been informed earlier before my mentor was changed to reduce or be prepared for any disruptions to my course.

    Great program that provides students with a lot of flexibility and support. The curriculum is a challenge, but still manageable as long as students are willing and able to put time and effort into their work.

    I’m currently taking the UI course and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience. Not only do I feel like the material is well laid out and comprehensive, but CareerFoundry has given me so many resources from advisors, a tutor, a mentor and a community that I can turn to when I need support.

    The curriculum of the program is ok- it follows a good tempo and covers interesting topics. What I find great is that we can put in practice what we are learning straight away. On the other side- the tutors are absolutely clueless when it comes to solving issues on the way or explaining anything in more detail. Usually their answers involve some YouTube videos which they advise you to watch and mostly never answer your question directly or even try to understand what you are experiencing difficulties with. Maybe cut off the tutors and leave only the mentors for this program?
    One of the things I find really not efficient is that feedback is asked ALL the time. However when you would provide constructive feedback with examples to the student advisors all their answers are extremely defensive and somehow they would always tell you to schedule a call with your mentor- this seems to be the most common solution for all problems.

    Hey! I think that sometimes the course could be more practical, with more videos showing how to use some of the tools instead.
    The instructors are very nice, their feedback is always helpful in many ways.
    And even if the job assistance is good, it could be improved by having more direct contact with the supplier's support team to avoid any miscommunication.
