    Loaded with useful information

    I decided to go with CareerFoundry' UX Design Bootcamp to learn and indulge in everything UX/UI. So far, I've been finding a great mix of happy learning, and challenges which is important so I can grasp and eventually apply these technicalities in real-life projects. The tutors and mentors are amazing and always so great at communicating their feedback to me, which is pivotal in my learning.

    An exciting learning experience

    It has been a motivating and exciting journey for me so far in the Data Analytics boot camp with Career Foundry.  The course is exhaustive with hands on exercise at the end of each topic apart from a detailed project work after every major milestone.  With the constant reviews and feedback from experienced mentor and tutor, I've never felt lost.  I am looking forward for applying all my learnings in the real life scenario.

    Fun and Informative!

    I was skeptical going into this bootcamp since I haven't been in school for 3 years. I have also never tried online learning before and wasn't sure if I was going to be able to hold myself accountable. Honestly, this is a really great program. Each exercise is informative and the assignments have a fool proof way of getting the details across that you need to include. If you're stuck, you have a tutor and a mentor you can reach out to for clarification. This process is going very smoothl...

    Perfect balance between immersion and flexibility

    I choose this bootcamp beacause I wanted to be able to slow down when I am busy and accelerate when I am free.
    Well, I am more than happy with the actual result. The lessons are clearly explained, with real world practical examples.
    CarreerFoundry approach helps to master complex concepts by studiying alone, even if my tutor mentor and other students are also present to help. My tutor and mentor are great, they provide timely, regular and extremelly useful feedback after each exerc...

    Supportive, comfortable enivornment

    Having been a student on CareerFoundry’s UX course for the last 6 months, I’ve really enjoyed my time learning. The support from both my mentor and tutor has been great and the feedback has been useful, specific and supportive. I’ve been able to gain and practice design skills and gain an insight into the role of a UX designer. The tasks have been challenging but taught in bite-sized, easy to understand chunks so it’s never felt not do-able or overwhelming.
    The one thing I would say i...

    Careerfoundry review

    Don't waste your money on this bootcamp. There are many 
     free and low cost courses out there that offer better value than what this bootcamp has to offer. Poorly structured and almost non existent tutorship. It promises but does not deliver. The certification is useless when it comes to employment prospecting. In the end a waste of time and money. You are paying $6000 for a curriculum worth $60.

    A Unique Immersion

    The courses are very gratifying to complete, and the amount of diverse ways to express your own interpretation of the data is endless. It can be difficult to comprehend at times, but it's even more satisfying when you get it right.

    Flexible, thorough, Understanding

    Career Foundry covers all bases; a tutor, a mentor, student advisors, and eventual job assistance. It's great for people working full-time but looking for a career change. All of the assignments are thought out and help to put what you learned into practice while letting you to make your own interpretation and apply your ideas to see what works and what doesn't.

    Experience with Admin

    It's been one of the worse experiences trying to reach Admin and getting a response. First of all, many of the features, functions and systems they advertised doesn't work. It's a go at-your-own-speed system, so if the customer service are not there, then mind as well watch youtube videos and learn for free. The Admin are nice and sounds like they care, but they never respond directly to the questions and try to avoid scheduling times to actually problem solve. Imagine signing up with a ...

    Still unfinished, but overall good experience!

    I am currently still a student here, but I will be graduating soon. I feel like it has been an overall positive experience so far, however, since I haven’t finished, I cannot give an objective review on the job assistance part of the program. It’s definitely more geared towards those who are better at self learning, but need just a little bit of extra guidance.
