    Great curriculum!

    This course is so well structured. With every task, you learn new skills in order to start slowly building your understanding of UX. It's so easy to follow and great if you are a beginner. The consistent feedback from a tutor also really helps! Would recommend it for anyone looking to delve into the world of UX!!

    Intro to Data Analytics

    I'm nearly finished with my CareerFoundry Intro to Data Analytics course. It's been a great exploration of the fundamentals of conducting a descriptive analysis, and using Excel. The quality of feedback from my tutor has been incredible, and I've loved the relevant, contemporary examples used in the curriculum.

    Don't do Web Dev course, Do UX/UI!

    Pros:
    - Website: Ok
    - Service: Helpful and quick reply. But when about job related? Sadly not good due to different local market
    - Slack community: Met some interesting fellows

    Cons:
    - Curriculum: Not good enough to get a junior position. Video explanation? The instruction is too plain / strong accent - hardly to understand sometimes. Too much writing and quite confusing sometimes.
    - Job preparation: Too strict and too American...

    Well supported UX Program

    The best part of the UX Design Program with CareerFoundry (and what made me choose them), is that you can choose your own pace. You have a deadline, true, but it´s established doing the minimum weekly hours of study. 

    Also important is that you spend all the time during your program working on practical projects. So yes, there is a lot to read and digest,  but putting everything automatically into practice makes it much more dynamic. Not only that, you are building your portfolio ...

    So happy

    I took a chance on this course after thinking about changing careers for so long.  Before making my decision I spoke to a representative from Career Foundry and an online school in my area in Colorado. Career Foundry offered more flexibility, they were approachable, and have been so caring during my course.  I feel they look out for their students throughout the course. I really enjoy getting feedback from my tutor and mentor because they know what is needed from students in the industry...

    A very good course with a project-based learning approach, with tutors and mentors on a 1-to-1 basis. And a great community of peers to stay motivated and get help.

    A comprehensive UI Design Course!

    As someone working in the UX design field, I wanted to expand my skill set and learn more about UI (I already had some fundamental knowledge, but wanted a more of a deep-dive experience). The course gave me exactly what I expected. I also received a lot of feedback and support from my mentor and tutor -- this was extremely valuable for me!
    Since I wasn’t looking for a job, I didn’t take advantage of the career support offered on the course, but have no doubt that if I had, it would ha...

    From Data Science to UX Design

    The UX Design Program with CareerFoundry allowed me to successfully transition into the UX design field without any prior knowledge on UX.
    I’ve studied and worked in the data science field for many years before I decided that I want to change my career path where my creative and visual aspirations could be met. The career change process wasn’t easy for me, as I’ve already reached a certain seniority level in the data science field and starting from scratch in a new role meant not only...

    Really enjoyable entry into UI design!

    This was a really great starting point for someone completely new to UI design — like myself!

    By the end of the course I had a set of pixel-perfect mockups for a pretty sweet looking travel app. I worked predominantly with Sketch (but there was also the option to use Adobe XD).

    I think what made the course so good was the seamless interaction with my CareerFoundry mentor and tutor — they really gave a lot of valuable tips and feedback — but...

    UI Design Program

    My mentors were great and very helpful. I finished my program in 3 months when on average, it can take people a year. I really worked hard in it and I know I did a great job because I loved my projects and designs, and so did my mentors. I believe they even used some of my work as examples to show future students. I really enjoyed the program and the tasks since I come from a design background. The whole reason why I joined the program was because one of the employees told me that Career...
