    A great choice to start your UX journey

    I really enjoyed the UX Career track. My mentor was great. She not only helped me with the curriculum, but she also gave me insight and resources outside of what Springboard offered. Calvin really seems to care as a career coach. He helped me with my resume, cover letters, and LinkedIn. They’re also available as resources once you’re finished the course.
    The Industry Design Project is a highlight. It pairs you with a real world startup for 4-5 weeks. I think this sets Springboard apar...

    UX Design Career Track

    I had a great experience learning UX design with Springboard. I like that the course takes you through all of the stages of the design cycle and you produce a lot of deliverables that you can add to your portfolio. My mentor was very helpful and gave excellent industry advice and encouragement during our weekly calls. I highly recommend Springboard.

    Great for self-motivated learners

    Pros: Free access to Sketch or Adobe XD for a year. Financing through Climb Credit helped me only pay around $25/month while I was in the curriculum (if you're a disabled military veteran, it is possible to have this program qualify for Voc Rehab, and get tuition reimbursement). Access to mentors, career coaches, and student advisors is really helpful in building your professional network, which you'll learn is a helpful way to make your name known as you transition careers.

    Ux/Ui Career Track

    Overall my experience with springboard's UX/UI Career track was amazing. There was a lot of curriculum to take in and learn from to help you prepare to what's coming up ahead. The projects you will be doing through out this course are the ones that will give you a lot of practice with your UX/UI skills. These skills that you will earn and develop will help you gain more confidence about your transition as a UX/UI designer.

    Data Science Career Track

    My experience with Springboard is exceptional and I found the staff super helpful. The curriculum has a wide variety of collections (Videos from Harvard, exercise from Datacamp, etc) towards each topic. Mini projects alongside each chapter gave me hands-on experience on certain topics which I found super helpful. Career coaches and on-demand mentors are knowledgable and patient. If there is one thing I have to be picky about is the quality of the assigned mentor, some of them can be more p...

    Outstanding Curriculum!

    I'm a UX Consultant that wanted to bolster my credentials with a formal education. I took their UX Design course and gained valuable insights in Visual Design. If you asked me 1 year ago that I'd be able to design a mobile application through user-based research I would have said it was impossible.

    I'm more competend in design apps like Balsamic Wireframes, Invision, Sketch, Whimsical, etc. Thanks to my mentor I was able to grasp difficult concepts easily. The course was fairly ...

    I highly recommend Springboard's Data Science Career Track for anyone who is looking to pivot careers into data science. I learned a lot through my mentors and connecting with other students. The staff at Springboard are extremely dedicated to their students and do all they can to help you prepare for networking, interviewing, and eventually being a successful data scientist.  The curriculum is largely datacamp courses, but you are also required to complete 2 capstone projects.

    My Experience with Springboard .

    I joined the springboard course in the month of Aug,2019 and I left/discontinued the course in the month of Jan,2020

    It’s not worth at all, simply i can say waste of your hard earned money and waste of time as well.

    So called mentors will be not available as per the schedules and they don’t spend much time with the students in explaining their doubts or explaining the concept.

    Great Mentorship makes the coursework alive

    I was already working in digital marketing but I wasn't getting the type of training that I hoped and I really wanted to accelerate my career. I got paired with a great mentor that really help me dive deeper into the coursework and bring it into the real world. I took alot from the course that helped me become more successful at work and helped me bring my career to the next level.

    Good way to get into data science field

    I had a good experience taking this course...the curriculum was well structured and organized and was tied to the completion of a final project. There were weekly 30 minute calls with a mentor who helped you with your questions on the curriculum and the project...the calls were also used to plan strategy and stay on top of things ... Overall the content of the course was very good... obviously there is a ton of things going on in data science, and the course material does not provide an in-de...
