    Great program overall

    Pros: 1:1 Mentoring. They will guide you through the curriculum, help you set goals, keep you accountable if that's something that you want or need.

It also has a lot of hands on case studies and 2 Data Science Capstone Projects.

    Con: I have to say that I started to really appreciate the program in the second pa...

    Data Science Career Track

    This was one of the websites that I initially looked at when deciding which boot camp to pursue. Springboard was highly rated, and with good reason. After finishing the curriculum, I can say that I feel confident in my abilities in implementing data science methods. The boot camp provides access to the platform DataCamp, which has become one of my favorite resources to practice my coding skills. The staff and my mentor were also very helpful throughout the journey. I never felt intimidat...

    I really appreciated that Springboard's course setting, I have chance to learn fundamental knowledge but also able to have real-world project. My mentor is a design manager from Facebook which she always share her professional view. Most importantly, it supposed to be a 6 months bootcamp, but Springboard gave me extra five months extension for free. Their Industry Project helps me to land a full-time UX design job after I graduate from bootcamps for a month. All three of my teammates lan...

    UX/Ui Career Tracj

    I began at Springboard two months before the pandemic. IT rocked my life and Springboard made graduation possible. The circumstances were truly, unique. They provided enough flexibility and advice to direct me towards completion on time. The principles learned and results of cumulative work that lead to a portfolio was the foundation I needed. Even if it's not perfect when you finish, you will learn that iterations are part of the process. Design is a moving target and Springboard can gi...

    UX Designer

    Ever since I enrolled in Springboard's UX/UI Career Track, I started to recommend this course to everyone around me who is interested in tech or design. The curriculums are well put together, the 4 projects really makes up a great portfolio and the 1 on 1 mentorship was super helpful. It took me 10 months to complete the course and I spent way over 20 hours per week, but it was worth it. I ended up landing a job just 2 weeks after graduating.

    A life changing experience!

    Really enjoyed my time at Springboard's UX Career Track program which helped me start my job as a UX/UI designer after having worked professionally in marketing/visual design for nearly 10+ years.

    Pros:

    —The career services module was easily worth the price of admittance. It helped keep me sane during my 9+ month job hunt and helped me stay on track during this arduous process.
    — My mentor was fantastic and I am still in touch with her today and am benefitti...

    Overall good experience with some caveat

    I had a good time with Spring Board's ML course.  The certificate is under the UC San Diego Extension name, which is great.  The course itself is overall good, however I do want to point out a few things: 

    1. It's only as useful as the amount of time you put into it 
    2. Take notes constantly or you won't learn anything 
    3. Use mentor to keep you on track 

    Their material are all freely available online like YouTube videos, while this sound bad it di...

    It's the real deal and it's worth it

    Having just completed Springboard's UX Design Career Track, I am walking away with a whole new set of UX skills and thanks to the rigorous curriculum  I feel very confident in my ability to execute them in a professional setting. I come from a multi-disciplinary design background, and I've had an interest in transitioning into the UX/UI field for a few years, so I was slowly self-learning and taking Coursera courses prior to starting the Springboard course. Unfortunately, Coursera course...
