    Flexible and understanding

    I'm almost done with my web dev program, and I have enjoyed my time as a student at CF. Some of the highlights include how understanding and helpful they were when I had some personal issues that made studying full time difficult. They were very supportive and offered me help along the way. You are also assigned both a tutor and a mentor, both of which will review your material and help you out with almost anything. I have gotten so much out of my interactions with these two, and I feel ...

    Wonderful Experience

    I found an article on LinkedIn that addressed Graphic Designers on how to learn UI/UX. I think it may have actually been a CareerFoundry article! I decided to look into it and wanted to learn more. I was feeling like I wasn't going anywhere in my career and the industry in which I worked was starting to decline (Newspaper). I ultimately chose CareerFoundry as my bootcamp to learn these new skills and I'm very happy that I did.

    The curriculum is wonderful. You are first given a qui...

    UX Certification

    I have a design background with graphic and web experience and I was looking to get back into the work force with new skill sets. I did a lot of research for bootcamps but this one seemed to have a very comprehensive program. I also looked on the website and saw that one of the graduates had exactly the same background as I did (Fine Arts/Digital Arts) and so I looked her up and emailed her directly about the program. Her email was so encouraging. She took the time to respond to all my q...

    UX design

    I had decided to go with CareerFoundry because it's comprehensive and super flexible.  You will get a tutor who reviews your assignments and a mentor who reviews assignments at the end of every achievement.
    It's a self paced course so you can make your own schedule. A lot of study material with videos will be provided and you can book calls with your mentor whenever required. 
    I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start learning UX design.

    UX Designer

    The lessons, coursework, and projects are great! And the fact that I get a tutor and a mentor has been very beneficial as in past bootcamps I only had a mentor and it might take him 2 or 3 days to approve an assignment or get back to me with an answer to a question. My tutor always gets back to me very quickly with advice or approvals or helpful answers. My only concern is that neither tutor or mentor are too heavily involved in my projects, and they often times forget or don't know deta...

    No regrets!

    At the beginning of the year I decided to take more look into bootcamps vs. getting a degree. I needed something super flexible as I'm working full-time. After long comparisons, I decided to choose CF. It's super flexible and it's self-paced. It's based on self-study. They have course content you read, some chapters have videos, there's links to external articles. You get a tutor and a mentor. Tutor reviews your assignments and mentor reviews the assignments at the end of each achievemen...

    Big let down! Not worth the money!

    The whole enrolment process took 6 months. That should have been the first red flag but I was excited so I ignored it. The level of mentorship/tutorship is way bellow the expectations. You'll have to almost beg them to look into your stuff and it always feels rushed and careless. See, the tutors and mentors have a real 9-5 job, and CareerFoundry probably pays them pennies so naturally you will be at the bottom of their priority list. If you are thinking you'll have someone explaining eve...

    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 ...
