    UX Design course by CareerFoundry is a great program for those who want to change their job and learn something from scratch. Although it is a bit intense if you do it part time beside working full time, it worth it at then end.

    Worst School!

    I just graduated from the FullStack immersion course, There is no any Job guarantee cause they blocked me for no reasons after I finished the Course.
    I kept the whole course working on my own cause they could not hire any Good Tutors.
    The Mentors of the Job prep. is not related to the course, I advice anyone who wants to learn Full-Stack Immersion to join a professional Boot Camp to get a real knowledge to find a job.

    UX Design Program

    On the surface Career Foundry looked great. Reasonable pricing, self-paced, walk away with 2 portfolio-ready projects. I signed up and hit the ground running. The introduction course was very good. Took a couple of weeks to complete and gave you a good sense of the UX design process. However, once you get to the main UX Immersion course, that's when things start going downhill. This is a long, drawn-out course. There are so many filler exercises that are there just to make the course fee...

    UX Course

    The online school offers practical, market-ready knowledge in a fairly reasonable time. The mentors, tutors and other advisors are helpful to support students along the way.
    The overall curriculum is practical and straight-forward, although sometimes are a bit confusing, but does not block to make overall progress.
    The only drawback is that a student basically has to make progress alone, but once you learn how to do that you will find only benefits.

    CareerFoundry UX Program Review

    CareerFoundry has been very helpful in getting me acclimated to industry standard design practice. I do believe that what you put in is what you get out but the mentors, teachers and advisors are here to help you however they can. The slack channel is also helpful to connect with other students. I am appreciative of the help I’ve gotten throughout my course and I can’t wait to start applying and becoming a professional UX designer!

    Great Course!

    Currently enrolled in the UX Design course and so far it's been great!  You go at your own pace, but the program will also suggest how many tasks to submit to stay on track.  The content is broken down into parts and the tasks reflect what you just learned.  (There are some tasks that require participants / user input, so completing those may take longer if you have to coordinate availability with friends/family/people on the CF Slack community.)  Sometimes I feel like there could be mor...

    UX Introduction Course & UX Immersion Course

    Students sign up for the UX immersion course and are enrolled in the 4-week introduction course before they start the immersion course. The introduction course throws students into the entire UX design process so that students get an overview of the entire process before the immersion starts. The immersion program starts off very slow and picks up after going through the history of UX. The company promises a job guarantee, and there is some confusion about the details of the guarantee.

    UX Design Course

    I am attending UX Design Course at CareerFoundry. This a hands-on course based on learn-by-application approach. This course is separated in 3 parts, first is Intro, second Immersion and third is Specialisation, there is also mentorship and tutoring provided as well as vast student community. I am in Immersion part now and so far I am pretty pleased with it. 
    But, there is some room for improvement, here's what I've noticed:
