In this program you’ll learn all the job skills, tools, and processes you need to become a qualified UX designer—with a job guarantee to boot. You’ll receive individualized mentorship through our dual mentorship model that pairs you with not one but two UX professionals to support, advise, and give feedback throughout the program.

The program is 100% online and flexibly-paced, and our curriculum is rigorous, project-based, and adaptive—designed to empower you to acquire all the job-ready skills you’ll need to break into your new career. The full journey is split into four parts: UX Fundamentals, UX Immersion, your choice of one specialization (User Interface Design for UX Designers, Frontend Development for Designers, or Voice User Interface Design), and Job Preparation. This setup ensures you start out with the basics, and finish as an expert in UX with specialised knowledge, and a solid approach to your job search.

Graduate from our UX Design Program, follow our job search guidelines, and you’ll land a job in the field within 180 days of graduation—or your money back.

No previous experience is required. Prospective students can simply talk to a CareerFoundry advisor about their background and motivations to see if the program is a good fit.

I would like to start off by saying how unhappy I am with your curriculum and tutor. I expected more out of the foundation course rather than just having to read. I have previously asked for a change in tutor but that did not happen. I struggled to learn and did not receive the help that I was promised before I signed up for the program. The tutor takes days to reply even though I was told he would reply within 24 hours. I understand I must refer to external resources to learn but I am doing that more than 90% of the time because of how vague the material and service is. Wouldn’t it be cheaper if I relied on external resources completely to learn than pay the full course fee for nothing? I messaged the tutor on Wednesday around 8.30pm. Today is Monday 10.15am and I still haven’t heard back from him regarding a roadblock I faced. Where is the “24-hour response time”? It was just a waste of my time and money.

FAQ

  • Are there payment plans available?

    Yes, you can select a monthly payment plan. Note: You will be required to pay the full duration of the payment plan even if you finish the course before the payment plan ends.

  • What’s the "catch" for the job guarantee?

    Our policies are very transparent and easy to follow. You need to live in or near a city of 200K people, apply to 5 jobs a week, and a few more reasonable requirements. Request a course package to learn whether you are eligible for the job guarantee.

  • Do I get a certificate at the end?

    You will receive a certificate when you complete the course to make your new qualifications easy for employers to see.

  • Is the course 100% online?

    Yes, the course is entirely online so that you can study flexibly according to your own schedule. You get access to our active student community on Slack and, after the course, you will have a global network of other ambitious alumni and mentors to support you.

  • What if I have a question that isn’t answered here?

    Request a course package to speak to one of our Career Advisors.
