    Best decision!

    Career foundry has been a great decision, and my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner.  Help is always available whether it’s from your assigned tutor or mentor, and you can also reach out and even collaborate with other students to help get your assignments finished.  It feels like a real school environment, which I was a little worried about with working only online- but it’s been great in keeping me on track and motivated.  Would recommend!

    Good for learning the basics

    I think bootcamps are what you make out of it.  I have prior graphic design experience so the curriculum was pretty easy for me.  I found that my instructors kind of glanced over my work, so unless I gave specific questions, my assignments got approved.  I supplemented my bootcamp with alot of online workshops and meetups because I thought the assignments were kind of dry/beginnerish.  Plus side is being able to follow a timeline. I know if I were to study on my own, I would get lost wit...

    UX Immersion Course

    The course was very detailed and thought out. My tutor and mentor made it enjoyable since I knew I was getting real feedback from people in the industry.

    A great experience where you can manage your own time

    I have enrolled in the Full-Stack Web Development Program this year, and so far my experience has been great! What made me choose CareerFoundry over an in-house bootcamp was the flexibility to study when I want and have the time for it, as I am working a full-time job. Another factor was the price, at is is significantly cheaper than most other in-house bootcamps I found. Each student gets assigned a mentor and tutor to help with the course progress, and I've had very good luck with mine...

    Do not waste your money trust them

    Do not waste your money on this people. They will rip you off. They will talk to you nice to make you enroll after that you will realize their realness. Bad staff and service. Their tutors and mentors will not help you as they suppose to and if you do not make your deadline to finish course they will charge you $1000 per month and will not give extension even at their fault. BE CAREFUL. TOTAL FRAUD.

    Hi there,

    thanks for sharing your feedback.

    We are sorry that your experience did not match your expectations, and we are always open to feedback in order to improve the product we offer.

    We transparently inform our students about the course extension fee in our
    terms and conditions. The extensions cost is $500 per month for any program. 

    However, we would very much like the opportunity to investigate your case further, as the points that you have cited are extremely uncommon for the vast majority of our students.

    Could you please contact us at:
    feedback@careerfoundry.com

    We look forward to hearing from you and addressing the points raised.

    Best regards,

    Your CareerFoundry Team

    Introduction to Data Analytics

    As a digital marketing specialist I'm not a complete beginner in data analytics, have been using Excel and other tools for years. I found the course to be very useful to structure the knowledge in my head though, and to give a little bit of theory and structure to my years of practice. I liked working with the tutor and mentor, it feels nice to get help at any time and definitely avoids you from being stuck on something for too long. Planning to take on the full program now, for a deep d...

    It wasn't just a careerchange course it was actually fun!

    I loved taking the CareerFoundry UX Design Program. The Exercises were really interesting, if you are interested in psychology and how the human mind works you'll actually really enjoy reading and deepening your understanding of users! I never found the exercises boring and flew through them when reading them. I was worried that changing careers might be a boring or daunting task but when the content is actually mentally stimulating you enjoy spending time on the projects!

    Great Intro to Data Analytics Course

    This 1-month course is a great way to learn about the fundamentals of data analytics. Starting from the first assignment, I was able to apply the knowledge I received to my work (I work in marketing). 
    The curriculum was well-structured, and both my mentor and tutor were always there when I had a question or needed help. The feedback I received from my mentor/tutor was personal and constructive -- even when an assignment was done correctly, they shared tips on how I can improve even m...
