    UX Design

    Overall my experience with the UX Course and Springboard was amazing. I only had 3 months to finish the course on my end and it was hard to juggle work, life and the course but I enjoyed every minute of it. Lots of course material to go throught but all of it was valuable.

    The best aspect of this course I'd have to say is the mentor. Having someone to reach out to and to chat with about the course and the projects throughout the course was very helpful. Not to mention the experie...

    Data Science Intensive (Intermediate Data Science with Python)

    Very good curriculum. Healthy amounts of machine learning and statistical inference. Statistical inference is very important for data science. It was not a part of the Foundations of Data Science from Springboard course. So, I am happy it was included here. Lots of material is from datacamp. Finishing many datacamp certificates will help you with this course. Good experience with the mentor. As always, comprehensive capstone project helps you utilize everything you learnt in a real world s...

    Springboard is very helpful!

    I have just completed the curriculum of Data Science Career Track. I found it very helpful to me to achieve the skill set to become a data scientist. I get to know Data Science from Springboard's Foundation of Data Science course. After that I enrolled in this course. Now I have finished three capstone projects.

    The courses are very well organized and the Mentor is very helpful. I get feedbacks about my questions, projects, job search strategies quickly. Because this is a self-mo...

    Even though I read a lot about UX design through websites it was difficult to understand how to deal with a full project and that why I subscribed into Springboard.
    I highly recommend Springboard to anyone who looking for great UX Design course, the curriculum is comprehensive and you'll have a friendly experienced mentor who will encourage you throughout the course.

    Springboard UX Design Course

    Loved participating and Graduating from SpringBoard's UX design course. 

    I'm a working graphic designer - the way SpringBoard set up their course is for working individuals to continue their education.  SpringBoard is unique because of their large online community  and mentor's they have available to assist you throughout your course.  I was very thankful for my mentor (shout out Sandy!!) because she was challenging and offered amazing constructive feedback.

    A good introduction to UX Design

    I just completed the UX Design course. I chose Springboard after quite a bit of research into other online certificate programs because you can work at your own pace, which is a big plus for me, and this makes it more affordable if you finish sooner. The mentors were good and the curriculum gives you a good foundation in UX. Also, they contribute quality material to the community at large via things like their "office hours" videos which are free on YouTube.

    After completing the ...

    UX Design - great intro!

    I recently (June 2017) completed the Springboard UX Design course. It was a great experience! I really enjoyed my weekly mentor call. It was super helpful to get feedback from a professional working in the field. 

    The projects were fun and allowed me to learn in my own way. I've tried other online courses and this is by far the best UX course I've experienced!

    I only have positive things to say about the data science intensive curriculum, my mentor and everyone at Springboard.

    Mentorship is Key

    Springboard was a fantastic course with a multitude of resources and also a step-by-step structure which truly helped you understand the UX process. But where Springboard really shines is the mentorship you receive from your 1-on-1 calls. I would highly recommend this course to anyone as you will take away from it solid skills and a mentor for life!

    Hi Shashank,

    We’re sorry to hear that you feel this way! We completely understand that you didn’t have a great experience with your mentor. We do our best to monitor mentor experiences through our post-call surveys or when a student reaches out to their Student Advisor, and it’s unfortunate that your poor experience wasn’t brought into light until well into the course.

    When it was brought to our attention, we were more than happy to work with you to understand your situation and find a positive resolution to move forward, including working with you to find a different mentor you’d be happy working with. It’s unfortunate that we weren’t able to come to agreement to help us move forward positively, and we’re sad that you still feel negatively despite our constant communication with you regarding this entire situation.

    As an apology for your poor experience, we issued you a refund a few weeks back when you withdrew from the program, which should have been credited to your account. If you have further feedback to improve our program, we’re more than happy to hear it!

    UX Design Certification

    I took the Springboard UX course early in 2017 when I had gotten laid off unexpectedly. I had planned to take it, but it just gave me a bit more time to focus on the course and since it was a pay by the month situation, I figured it was a really good time to dive in. The course itself is quite thorough in a lot of ways. I have a graphic design background, but you really don't need any background to go through it. Since I had read some books, did some reading online and took a few high-leve...
