    Can't say enough great things about CarerFoundry!

    Choosing between different online bootcamps was a difficult process because there are so many, but I'm so beyond happy I went with my gut and chose CareerFoundry's UI Design Program. The curriculum is very well thought out and allows you to build upon your skills along the way, so many resources are given to you so you can really go above and beyond what is required. I also love how flexible the program is, its self paced so you can move as fast as you want through the material and can t...

    It's alright but a bit tedious and would work better as video instead of text/audio

    So far I have learned a lot with the courses, but I must admit that it was a very short start and I often feel bored with the assignments. Some of the tasks are tedious and too simple and feel more like busy work than learning anything new. Of course it's understandable since people are at all different skill levels when they start, but the school would benefit maybe a little from being more flexible depending on previous knowledge of the student. Also, the school seems to concentrate on...

    CF UI course 2021

    I’m currently passed half way of my course and I’m enjoying every bit of it! I’m a product manager so UI/UX isn’t new to me, but I still learn so much from the course so far.  The tutor call feature is super helpful, and it doesn’t have a limit on how many calls I can do. Can’t wait to give another update once I finished the course and see how the job placement goes!

    I'm so grateful!

    I'm currently just over halfway through my UX Design course. The course is nicely structured and great if you are self-driven. The most amazing part of the course for me is having access to my mentor, tutor and career specialist, that's where the value of the course is. I really recommend the course for the structure! You're able to have creative freedom with your course project, I really like how I can try something different

    Ui/UX Designer

    Career Foundry has been a great and challenging experience. They have really great team. I have a tutor and a mentor. My tutor works with me through the required tasks there are 10 or so in each course. The mentor is someone from the industry that checks the work at the end of the course. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in UI/UX! I am changing my career so if I can do it so can you!

    Successful Transition into Design from Nursing

    I graduated from my UI Design course in April 2021. Within a month, I was able to land a design job in the FinTech industry. I have a background in healthcare as a nurse. I had the pleasure of being paired with Neha as my career specialist. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in providing guidance during my job hunting process - from resume building, optimizing my LinkedIn profile, to salary negotiations. I appreciated and trusted Neha’s background as a recruiter to get the roles...

    If you have self-discipline and determination, go for CareerFoundry courses

    I have taken and completed Career Foundry's UX certification course this year. I found it super informative - way more beneficial than what I imagined. The course material is okay but I found the one to one mentorship most beneficial. I think it's worth the price and time, and if flexibility is what you are looking for, look no further. It took me almost a year to finish my course(because of full-time childcare responsibility and my freelance work) and this kind of structured course is p...

    Streamlined Knowledge

    I am currently halfway through the UX design program, and I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to do a bootcamp. Every teacher/mentor I have interacted with is very helpful and knowledgeable. The best part is that there is no filler content. They only teach you what you need to know to work as a UX designer.

    UI/UX Design Program

    I had a tough time trying to decide which online program to choose... soo soo happy that I went with Career Foundry. The support system is amazing, I love how detailed the courses are and how they go everything step by step.  Offers options to have the chapters read to you as you go along, for me that is a bonus and I take in info much better that way. Highly recommend! I really can't rate on job assistance quite yet, as I am not quite there yet ; )  This course is well worth it if you'r...

    My CF experience

    Hello, my name is Szilard and I’m currently on the 1/3rd of the Full Stack Web Development program!

    Before I started the course I did a little research and found out that the CareerFoundry has the best offer in terms of time and curriculum.

    This is my first online course so I don’t have any references.
    My opinion is that the course material is the best you can get in this period of time, I mean 5-6 months, because I am learning ...

    My UI course with Career Foundry

    Having just finished this course I have to say that as a beginner the course was paced nicely and the information was there, with many references to go even further and get more information.
    The examples from other students was a nice help, but sometimes these examples were blank, whether this was due to the example being removed and not put in I have no idea.
    The course as well was very much geared towards using Sketch with only a little assistance for using Adobe XD and nothing a...
