    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 Majority of the exercises are all very out of date and they refuse to want to update them.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...

    Great Program with lots of help.

    Definitely need a curriculum to follow in order to cover all that I would need before starting a career in full stack web development and CareerFoundry has done a great job in providing that. Also very generous in helping you finishing the course even if you need more time because of a tight schedule.

    So happy with my choice!

    When i decided to reorient my career to UX/UI Design i spent hours online researching schools. Im so glad i went CareerFoundry. The curriculum is great and the support from mentors, tutors and student advisors is part of the reason i chose CF and they keep me on track and motivated. I still have a few months to go before i get to the Job Assistance portion but im looking forward to it.

    Teacher to Tech

    Career Foundry has been a great experience so far. I really enjoy working with my tutor and meeting with my mentor. I feel like I’m learning a lot and doing a lot of good work to build my portfolio and skill set. I am doing the program part time and working full time as a Pre-K teacher. Completing the course on my own time has been very helpful, I really enjoy the flexibility.
