    It's been almost three months since I started the UX design course and I cannot find a reason not recommending it.
    I am in constant communication with my tutor and I have weekly meetings with my Mentor. Both of them send me a lot of additional resources to read and advice on how to improve my work. 
    Another thing I love about this course is the flexibility that I have to read and do assignments whenever I have time.

    This is the best learning experience that I had in my life. People at CareerFoundry are extremely friendly and are always there to help you with whatever questions or problems you could have. 

    This changed my vision about learning.
    5* and hand down.

    I am currently taking the full stack web development course at CareerFoundry. It has been very challenging, but also exciting, as I gradually figure out how everything works, having come into this with almost no coding experience. My mentor at CareerFoundry has been very supportive, encouraging, and helpful.

    I started the course of Data Analytics in Career Foundry in March 2021. 
    Until now I learned several important tools, such as SQL, EXCEL, PYTHON, TABLEAU. But in all of them I have the impression that the content is not deep enough to make me feel comfortable and confident for a job application.
    Despite that, I can assure that the professionals behind the course are great.

    UX Design Immersion Course and UI Specialization - overall the course provides a general and basic background of UX, but does not seem to provide enough foundational information that is necessary.  Example is they touch on "accessibility" but have 1 paragraph on it during the actual coursework and most of the info I had to google and learn elsewhere.  The tutors are OK and seem to have a pre-determined cut and paste response format that is provided to them on how they respond to your tasks.  I had to switch mentors due to scheduling issues and both are so-so at best.  A lot of the course work and studies is the effort you put in to do the extra learning outside of the base of what's provided.  They keep telling you to use the slack channel and to reach out to student advisors, but the student advisor question submit is responded by bots and isn't helpful when you just want to reach out to someone about your personal case.  The delay in response could be due to the time difference between the US and Germany, but I definitely do not like the slack format as it is chaotic to follow.

    I have started to UX Design Program. It is not even my second month yet but I have learned a lot. My favorite part of it is its flexibility and how my mentor and tutor are always there to help with any question in my mind. It is a career path that is designed just for us so I would suggest it to anyone who is interested.

    Super focused career-building course, teaching the things that actually work. With help from a tutor, a mentor, and several student advisors, an answer is only ever a message and just a few hours away. The structure and tools to keep up with the course at your own pace really support a self-learn experience that can be done even while working a full-time job.

    I'm halfway through the UX Design course and am learning a lot. Prior to the course, I had a small amount knowledge of UX Design through my past job and this course has helped me understand it much more, particularly with the tools we used in User Research, so I can see how it can be applied to a real-life UX role. I like the structure and consistent pace of the course as well as working on the project. My tutor and mentor respond to me in good time and I find the mentor sessions valuable, encouraging and supportive. 

    I'd really recommend it particularly if you can put all your efforts into it. I'm currently working full-time as well as studying and have found it challenging but it's completely doable if you're very focused and keep the balance.

    I am a little over halfway through the CareerFoundry UX Immersion course and am enjoying it. The course provides a great foundation on which to build. Like any remote, self-paced program, you will get out of it exactly what you put into it. I am enjoying taking the time to learn different programs, working through the frustrations of growth, and figuring it out. They are definitely not going to do it for you which is as it should be! The tutors and mentors are great resources and be prepared to prepare and ask a lot of questions.

    I started my UX/UI design classes  with career foundry and I am glad I did, I am learning a lot and we have a wonderful support throughout the Courses. I am only steps away from getting my certificate and looking forward for new dream and new career. Even though I did not have any tech background but the UX Design course with career foundry is designed to teach you right from the very beginning and it is flexible paced program. I also enjoyed a great and helpful tutor and mentor that are their to help me and guide me throughout the course and motivate me when needed. 

Thanks!
