    UX Bootcamp

    Although CareerFoundry does offer multiple bootcamps, I have personally only taken the UX one and have had a wonderful experience. They offer in-depth material and give students tasks that help build knowledge. Along with the material, CareerFoundry gives students a tutor that is always a text message away and a mentor who is experienced in the field. Additionally, everyone's response time is quick and fast and they are always trying to help us get the best experience. They also have zoo...

    UX / UI - Review!

    Overall, I am incredibly satisfied with the program. It is a self-paced but the program offers guidance on how to pace oneself whether you choose to participate part or full time. Your tutor/mentor are always giving productive and helpful feedback to help you improve. My personal favorite part is how the lessons are so bite size. You read about a new exercise, directly implement that into the task of the day. This is all being gathered to build the main piece of the achievement and overa...

    Great for Career Changers and Beginners!

    I had a wonderful experience studying through CareerFoundry. I loved that it was all online and flexible. I was able to do it in my own time and at my own pace. I had two excellent mentors/tutors, who were always available to help with extra questions and advice. The free Job Preparation Course also helped immensely in preparing me for the job market and sending out professional applications. It also gave me the opportunity to set up a website that serves as my portfolio. All in all a gr...

    UX Design

    The course is designed to immerse the student on a work journey through completing small to medium tasks almost every day. It delivers some security that the curriculum will prepare you for the work environment and mostly to get a job right after finishing it. 
    The feedbacks on the tasks are encouraging but you can see it could be improved with a more personal approach rather than ready made texts. 
    The graphics for the exercises can be improved.

    UX Design Program Jun '21 Cohort

    Overall a fantastic program if you're willing to put in the work! The student experience is highly dependent on the tutor and mentor you happen to be assigned— so just something to keep in mind. Student support via the student advising team was excellent. Lastly, I've had one interaction with two different career specialists and both were a bit disappointing because I didn't really feel supported— but hopefully just an anomaly! Still, I would highly recommend this program.
