Avg Rating:5.0 ( 4 reviews )

Interaction Design Foundation’s UX bootcamp is an eight-week, online program with a focus on job-readiness. The Interaction Design Foundation bootcamp is self-paced, allowing for students to customize learning around their own schedules. Interaction Design Foundation (IDF) is an independent non-profit initiative with a mission to raise the standard of global design education while lowering the cost.

While Interaction Design Foundation does not require any technical prerequisites, prior knowledge of design concepts and technical skills will be beneficial. Free Interaction Design Foundation courses are available to those students who need additional training and have already enrolled in the bootcamp. Students will have a lifetime access to any project materials completed during the bootcamp. Students are also given a one-year Interaction Design Foundation membership, which includes Interaction Design Foundation courses.

The focus of the Interaction Design Foundation bootcamp is mentor-led portfolio-building. Mentors are experienced UX design professionals, and Interaction Design Foundation matches each student with their personal mentor. Under the mentor’s guidance, each student creates, finalizes, and learns how to present a design portfolio. This portfolio includes practical and guided projects, and can be a mix of the student’s own personal projects and real-world project briefs provided by Interaction Design Foundation.

In the last two weeks of class, mentors help participants prepare for job interviews and practice presenting their portfolios. Students also do design interviews with recruiters from creative staffing agencies like Bamboo Crowd and Creative Circle to ready them for job interviews. An Interaction Design Foundation certificate is issued upon completion of the bootcamp.

      Enrolling in, and getting accepted into the UX Design bootcamp immersive at the Interaction Design Foundation was the best decision I made to study online, all in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Having transferred my studies from another institute due to this pandemic, and another challenge prior meant that I was able to get a second chance at becoming a UX Designer. During my time at the Interaction Design Foundation, I had full autonomy and support in working on and iterating two projects on my portfolio, where I was able to study on my own time (not on a rigid 9-5 schedule) when I was most productive. Doing so enabled me to increase my hours at my part-time job from 4 to 25 hours per week, as well as graduate without any student debt. I had so much fun working on my projects, and my mentor did a great job in also helping me with my Figma skills, as well as providing encouragement and support. Alec from the support office was also great. If you value your freedom both time wise and financially, then I highly recommend this bootcamp with the Interaction Design Foundation.

      After completing several courses with the Interaction Design Foundation, I decided to join the IDF UX Bootcamp in order to work on UX projects and build my portfolio. I would highly recommend this UX bootcamp for the following reasons:
      1. The bootcamp allows you to personalise your learning path and to select projects that suit your own career objectives
      2. You will get personalised feedback and support from a dedicated mentor who will review continuously your work
      3. This bootcamp will help you to get a better understanding of the UX job market, create an engaging portfolio and break into the UX field.

      I have been a web designer for 5 years and as time went on, more and more of the projects I was assigned to required knowledge about user experience. Getting into UX became a necessity and when I saw that I could join for a price close to 1,000 USD, I decided to enroll. Signing up for this course was one of the best career moves I ever made. I got a UX job before I finished the program, so I can definitely recommend this course for everybody thinking about getting into UX.
