    Review CareerFoundry by Sheila E.

    I’m coursing Ux Design Course and I can’t be happier with my decision. The support from the team is amazing. I have a health problem and they support me not only with my studies giving me more time to complete the course, they also support me in a personal way. 
    The course is so complete. There are plenty of resources, they prepare you for job interviews, make your porfolio and to find a job. 
    You will never feel alone doing the course. It’s not that kind of course that you complet...

    Versatile training in every important aspect

    Coming from a non technical background, I enjoyed the variety of topics it covers.
    Career Foundry did a good job in picking on-demand technologies.
    The training is mostly understandable and only need update in some sections to the newest release or splitting some of the tasks.
    The community I find valuable and we learn from each other even though we live in completely different places.

    The career coaching is also a great deal and itself worth a lot. Consists of a course w...

    UX Design Course

    I am almost halfway through the UX Design Program and I love it. 
    I've done other online courses, even in UX, which gave me a good understanding of the field, but this course is very much deeper. 
    You have two parts: the intro part, where you learn almost every part of UX casually - this is where a lot of other courses end - and then the second, immersive part, where you pick a project that you work on. In this part you learn everything a UX Designer needs to know and almost everyt...

    Career Foundry review

    As a fan of independent learning, I can strongly vouch for Career Foundry. By "independent", I do not mean you are alone: your tutor and mentor will help you with any questions you have, and there is a whole community of other students to work with. The point is that you can learn at your own pace, spend more time on aspects you find challenging, and take whatever approach to learning suits you best. 

    Of course, this means you are responsible for structuring your time, and this is...

    UX Designer Program - An excellent one!

    After a very good research I choose to study at CareerFoundry and since april I'm making my career transition with them, loving it! 
    They are very attentive and the way of learning by making my portfolio is a differential. My course's mentor and tutor are senior professionals with good teach skills and very supportive. I recommend!

    First UX Design Course !!

    Overall my experience here at Careerfoundry has been great. I have been able to complete 2 out of the 6 achievements involved in phase two and really feel like I am being prepared for a future in UX design. I am being immersed in the language of UX, learning the main functions and responsibilities of my position and learning how to imagine myself in the context of a product development team as a whole. 

    I have especially loved getting to know my Mentor. She is very smart and has a...

    Full-Stack Immersion

    This course has exceeded my expectations. The material is clear and comprehensive, and the resources available to students (mentor, tutor, and career services) really make you feel like you have someone to reach out to when you need help, and you are supported. The self-paced setup is also so wonderful, as you can take the course as slow as you need, or pick up the pace when you have time/if you want to finish sooner. Overall, this course is very well designed and organized, and the mate...

    Full Stack Web Development

    This course is not worth the money at all. Majority of the exercises are all very out of date and they refuse to want to update them. The company seems to like to focus on their UX/UI students more than anyone else, and all the information they have on their slack channels is geared towards them with very little if anything geared towards the developers. The job guarantee is nearly impossible to fulfill as well and is more like a full time job and prevents you from actually focusing on g...

    Don't waste your time

    I have taken the UX Immersion Program and am very disappointed with the curriculum. The course is designed to create pieces for your portfolio and if your aim is to have a generic project in a generic portfolio, you can easily find all the information you'd get from the $7000 CF program on free youtube videos. I'm currently in the Front-end Development specialisation section of the course (almost 90% of the way through) and am just being told to essentially copy-paste code language into ...

    Recommendation

    Before choosing a UX Design Bootcamp to assist me in my career change plans, I reviewed all the options available from Germany and decided on Career Foundry because of three reasons: 

    1. The curriculum seemed well thought out and organized 
    2. The website and short trial course had the best UX experience in itself compared to other courses/ schools
    3. the career assistance program

    All three were proven correct. I am very satisfied with my choice and the course as a wh...

    Amazing Experience

    I've been on the UX Design course since January 7th and have had an amazing experience so far. My tutor, mentor, and student advisors have been amazing resources to find encouragement, inspiration, and motivation to push myself to do more and get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Course materials are nicely paced and I don't feel like I'm overwhelmed with managing my time to accomplish them. Of course, there will be some weekends where I may need to dedicate a few extra hours but I f...
