    I think the CareerFoundry's UX course is great. The self-learning course content is highly relevant and the support from the Tutors and Mentors is very helpful in staying motivated. There is also a large student community so connecting with students with who'm you can collaborate with on tasks and ask general questions makes the learning experience more enjoyable.

    My experience

    I was really hyped about the beginning, and it was amazing. I started first as a private student, but then I got Buildungsgutschein (if you are unemployed and live in Germany, check it out!) and started again, but I could resubmitted tasks that are done so far (which is cool). But I was assigned to another Tutor and Mentor.
    So the biggest advantage of CF is that it has 2 (later 3) persons that are in constant contact with you: your tutor, mentor and career specialist(that comes later,...

    CareerFoundry Miguel Almeida

    I am halfway into the course and loving the experience so far! The big emphasis on React during the course, also influenced my decision a lot, as it was something I wanted to learn for a long time. Was also looking for a longer Bootcamp (no 2/3 months) so CareerFoundry was the perfect match :) I would recommend it!

    Great course!

    The course was great! I learned so much. The help from my tutor and mentor was invaluable, as well as the career / job preparation coaching. I particularly loved how many of the tasks were structured very similarly as they would in a "real live" job scenario, starting with user stories, to creating kanban boards etc.

    Flexibly-paced Full stack web development

    I'm currently enrolled in CareerFoundry's full stack web development program. All of the learning is on-demand, and you are provided a tutor to review daily tasks and a mentor to review projects and have regular Skype calls with. The program is flexible, so you can work whatever hours you want at whatever pace you want, which is the big draw for me. I'm half-way through and am satisfied with the skills that the program is developing in me. I haven't yet started my job search so I cannot ...

    All you need for a career change

    I am super happy I was able to take the UX Immersive course with a Bildungsgutschein from the german jobcenter. During the course you work on two portfolio projects, one is short to get an overview about the process and one is more detailed. This helped me a lot to practice UX methods and get confident with different software. You get assigned to a Tutor and a Mentor who help with tasks, software and provide support when you get stuck. There is also a Career spezialist to prepare for the...

    Engaging Project Based Learning

    CareerFoundry has been an engaging and fun experience. The content is highly relevant and easy to do self-directed. I appreciate the examples of student work they include which help me understand if I'm on the right path. In addition, every task is working towards something that could be in a portfolio but broken up into small chunks so that it is not overwhelming and helps keep you motivated to keep working. The tutors and mentor have been amazing! They respond to my questions quickly a...

    UX Design

    I started the CareerFoundry program in January 2021 and completed the main UX Design course in July 2021. I completed the remaining courses (specialisation - UI for UX Designers & Job Preparation) in September and October 2021. I don't normally write reviews, but I feel like I have to write a review for CareerFoundry. My experience with this course has been nothing but positive. I started the program because I wanted to execute a career change, and after conducting an extensive amoun...

    UI Design

    I am mid-way through my UI Design course with Career Foundry. This was one of the best decisions of my life as I’m learning something I love and getting great feedback and support along the way.
    Everyone at Career Foundry is super supportive and I would recommend 100% choosing a course with them. If you have the chance to invest on yourself and your education, this is a great place to be, and you can do it at your own pace , which is great too!

    The school curriculum is great. They have a great way of teaching and building your portfolio at the same time. My only complaint is that there are a lot of designer tools you need to master and they don’t really teach you how to use them.
