    Affordable and job forward

    The ability to work at your own pace was amazing. 
    They give you a ton of help and resources to get you a job. It wasnt just about UX design it was how to get a job in UX. Their career coaches and mock interviews, and resume help was a huge game changer.

    Be aware that the timeline to finish earlier than 9months may be a little off. Some of the projects at the end of the course take longer than I anticipated and pushed my graduation/completion back 1month. So plan extra time at ...

    Springboard; Best Decision Ever

    I just completed my UI/UX Design course and couldn't be happier. The journey was a bit challenging as I was changing my career, but Springboard mentors and advisors' continuous support made it smooth for me. If you are in the same boat as me and want to excel in your career, I advise you to look no further and choose Springboard. Best of luck.

    UI/UX Bootcamp

    9-month remote-only UI/UX Design Bootcamp with job gaurentee. Program provides a well rounded foundation in UX/UI. Curriculum is at times rather broad and goes beyond the scope of a focused Bootcamp (ie building presention skills). Don't underestimate the time commitment to complete. It would probably be hard to do while working FT.

    Data Science bootcamp success

    Pros
    Loved the coach calls and the mentors. They were great. The community always had my back. I love that they didn’t recreate the wheels with content but laid it out nicely. Because it can be hard to navigate. 

    Cons
    I got a data science job 4 months in an had to work on both at the same time. Not a bad problem to have though. Plus the company reached out to me!

    Senior Web Designer

    I found Springboard through an online search of UX immersive boot camps.  Springboard is one of the leading online boot camps, and while it is not the least expensive of the programs, I joined because it is more than just a UX/UI boot camp.  They include in their course curriculum mentors with real UX professionals and career coaches, who not only help you develop the skills to become a UX/UI Designer but they work on all the other aspects needed to get a job; eg. network training, linke...

    Not worth it

    Just know if you need in depth help: customer service is a disconnected set of customer reps and a new person helps you each time. So every time you email them, someone else replies and if it isn't solved in first go, you need to repeat yourself. That will be a bigger deal if you need a whole bootcamp. 

    The mentor was very encouraging and helpful he was definitely my favorite part of this course. Glad to have connected to him because he gave some stellar resources.

    Data Analytics Track

    I started the course at the end of June 2020. The beginning of the course was great (the content in each of the units and the way they were built). But then in the Economics and Financial units, there were some videos we needed to watch, that I felt like were not in the level of what Springboard had so far.
    I think I was mostly frustrated about DataCamp. I did not feel like I've learned too much from it, and needed to find other sources to study from.
    The mentors (my mentor and the...

    UI/UX Career Track

    I took the UI/UX Career track with springboard. While an intensive program, this course gave me a thorough education and understanding of UX design that I had been seeking. The 1:1 mentorship was the highlight of my experience, since I got to talk face to face with someone that gave me constant support and encouragement. Although an online learning experience, springboard does its best to find ways to still build community. However I do think it would be great if there was more required ...

    UX Career Track

    I would stay away from Springboard. Especially during this hard time of job search. I will be the first one to say that mentors are amazing. Career coaches are great as well. BUT mentors are overworked, and some have way too many students. Support for mentors is lacking as well. Career coaches are very busy, and sometimes you will be waiting weeks before the call. That "Unlimited Mentor Calls" claim doesn't hold any water either, the number of open slots for this varies, and if you're up...

    Solid

    I had a really good experience with Springboard. I'm a web developer switching to design, and this gave me a clear path toward that goal. It is a serious time commitment so make sure you understand that. In the beginning I underestimated how challenging it would be, and started to fall behind my own goals. I got back on track fairly quickly and appreciate the fact that it was such a challenging program. My mentor was a cool person in general, but had a way of really making me think about...
