    CareerFoundry ? Great School !

    I'm currently studying the FullStack Development program and it has been a great journey. I had some previous experience in the field of software development and I was looking for something to boost my knowledge and I think that it was the right decision to start a course with them.

    The CareerFoundry curriculum is very well organised and complete. When you are studying on your own there is a lot of information out there and you usually feel overwhelmed and don't know how or where ...

    UI Design Course

    I started my course in Jan 2021 and 6 months in, I can say that I have learned a lot! 

    My favourite things about the course:
    - The curriculum is well defined and structured. Each topic is explained clearly, with context and examples. When using tools, you will have a tutorial to follow on the side
    - Tutor + Mentor feature is helping me progress and understand more than what it’s explained in the course. Moreover, I get repeated feedback, support and help with whatever hurdle...

    UX Design Programme

    I started the Intro to UX Design course with CareerFoundry in February and continued full-time with the UX Immersion thereafter. Ever since I began, I have really loved the course content and enjoy how it is laid out in a way that I can progress at my own pace with the great support of my tutor, mentor, and student advisors. It's great to be using the course content and putting what I've learned into practice all the time with the course project. It goes from one steady step to the next ...

    My Experience at CareerFoundry

    I made the difficult decision to leave my job and embark on a career change into UX design with Career Foundry. I was initially unsure which program to enroll in, but I ultimately chose CF because of its affordable price, compared to other Bootcamps on the market. The best part of the program is the access you get to professional mentors and your career mentor. I found the career mentor to be especially helpful as I began my job search. Five months after starting the program, I landed a ...

    UX course

    Honestly, this course deserves full marks in every category. I was skeptical at first, but once I started on my first day and was able to interact with others, check the curriculum and even jump into the course - I loved it. You are supported every step of the way and the tutor, mentors and specialist genuinely help you and go overboard to make sure you are confident and ready for the professional life. I would 100% recommend it (and actually have been since I started haha)

    UX Design

    As with starting anything new, there is always this uncertainty-factor; Will this really be something for me? Will I be able to commit to studying again for 6 months? etc...

    Excellent Program, Mentors and Tutors

    I am really impressed and extremely satisfied with CareerFoundry's UI Design Program. My course was divided into 6 Achievements with an average of 9 exercises per module, and from the start I could already notice that I would be learning real and relevant skills. 

    The course is planned in a way that each exercise gives you a theory lesson plus a task to practice the theory you've just learned. This gives the student a sense of moving up and evolving throughout the course and also ...

    Great curriculum and support

    I'm currently doing the UI Design Program at CareerFoundry and am very happy with it!

    The courses are clear and very well documented. The best part is having a tutor and a mentor supporting you throughout your journey and their insights on the working world are priceless.

    I would highly recommend CareerFoundry to anyone redirecting their careers towards UI or UX Design.

    Good Introductory Course

    This is a good course for introduction to UX Design. I will say that the initial sets of assessments were very basic and a little bit frustrating to have to go through as I did not feel they taught me anything.  In the end though, it is a good course.  I feel that it would benefit from more videos and some instruction on how to use the platforms that they are telling you to use for the boot camp's deliverables.

    Best way to change your career path

    I was looking for a new path in my career. I studied fashion design but I have always been interested in research and to apply design to find solutions. I found career foundry when I was looking for new options and I decided to study with them because of the support of your mentors and Tutors, it’s easier to make an important change if you are supported by professional people.
