    Senior Graphic Designer

    Springboard has been great since day one, I still feel like part of the Springboard family even after graduating. Thanks to Springboard I was able to land a new job even before graduating just by putting it in my resume that I am soon to graduate.

    Not quite what I expected, but it got me a job!

    To start, I had no experience in UX design. My background was video (production/editing) and graphic design. I wanted to expand my skillset but not break the bank on those other courses so I chose Springboard.

    Pros:
    - My mentor, Sarah, was amazing. Her background in UX was mind blowing and gave great inputs on my projects and great advice on everything. 
    - The Capstone project was really cool to do, it pretty much built my portfolio and the mentor helps you along every ...

    Springboard UX Design review.

    I just completed the UX course on Springboard. I found the content excellent. There’s so much relevant material from Mobile UX to lean. All the projects I submitted were used for my capstone project for my portfolio. The community are so helpful and you can see other students work if you’re not sure how to go about a project. My mentor was a fantastic help. It’s such a privilege to get a call every week from an expert in the industry. My mentor Brent was very positive and has so much exper...

    Great experience!

    I made sure to do my homework before investing any of my time or money into a program. Off the bat, Springboard made me feel like a college freshman again - a little excited, a little scared but overall getting you excited to learn again. Other programs made me feel like I was some sort of sales lead or money bag rather than a prospective student. 

    The program itself is very laid back - so you get what you make of it. If you put your whole heart into every section, you will get a...

    The Ultimate Crash Course on UX

    The perfect course on User Experience. Springboard is the perfecet balance of introduction to UX and enhanced experience for intermediate learners. As a professional who has worked in the field for about three years, Springboard provided me the skills and experience I wanted to enhance our UX at my workplace.

    The course is centered on a capstone project with a series of lessons centered on adding to and enhancing a presentable portfolio. Springboard matches students with some of ...

    Great UX Design course

    I just completed the UX Design course. I am so glad I chose Springboard... I learned so much. Having a mentor guiding me, providing feedback and encouraging me was my favorite part. Also, the program is organized and made a lot of sense. They offer different ways of learning the content either by reading an article, watching a video or practicing with easy to follow assignments. I would definitely recommend this program!

    Great, Valuable Experience

    Springboard's UX course really held a ton of value for me. I started the course working towards a promotion to UX Designer at my company. I'd been doing the work, but was just missing the foundations. This course was exactly what I needed. I learned everything I needed to know to build a solid foundation to help me continue to learn and ask the right questions. My one on one mentor was the best mentor I've ever had! It is truly worth it if you are newish to the feild and need a solid base ...

    Just turned in my capstone project to complete the UX Design Course. The course was worth every penny! You get paired with an established UX design professional who helps guide you through the course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to get their foot in the door and learn about UX design.

    Springboard UX Design

    I have to say, even being an online course I didn't felt alone or lost. My mentor was available through email, my student advisor was also available and there is a student community publishing their works, doubts and giving feedback to each others. My mentor is a great profissional in UX field and having time to talk with him was priceless!

    I completed my course in 2 months (that is the minimum), the pace was fast! They also organised a summit recently were I got to know most of th...

    Data Science Career Track

    Springboard's Data Science Career Track was great! I would highly recommend. I received a lot of support from my mentor, advisor and career services, and I felt like they ALL cared and really wanted me to succeed. I had a fulltime job, was volunteering on a Data Analysis project and have two kids, so I was busy. Springboard understood and worked with me to make sure I was still able to finish and feel good about my work. I appreciated the skype calls with my mentor and career services, and...

    Superb course that genuinely helped me refocus my career

    I was looking for a course that would help me bind the various bits of computing, statistics, technology and business knowledge that I've assembled during the course of a pretty wide ranging career and bind them into something more coherent that would take me up to a new level with regard to applying new machine learning technologies in a practical fashion.

    The course did exactly that, and more besides. It's supposed to take around 6-9 months but it took me a year, mainly because I...
