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 took CF's UX design course and absolutely loved it!

Before I started the UX design course, the design of a user experience for me was something, we should be doing in every field. I could see so much potential in improving the user experience of visitors to a museum, to a restaurant, to a hotel and even the user experience of a candidate applying for a job.

Even though this course focused on the UX design within web-apps and apps, the theory of UX design still holds true in all the above mentioned fields. So even if you are not sure whether you want to design apps or web-apps but can see yourself improving your experience design skills, I can highly recommend this course!

I must admit that I am not a particularly good online-only learner, but I still made it through the course - and I am actually super proud! It is all about getting into a routine and setting a manageable goal on how many submissions you want to do within one week.

A total of roughly 80 submissions sounds a lot at first but it helps you break the pile of content into small chunks and it gives you the feeling of achieving something 80 times :) And what amazed me the most is the progress I am seeing comparing submissions from different points in time.

So if you are not sure, just do it! If you want, feel free to use the following 5% discount: https://careerfoundry.com/en/referral_registrations/new?referral=JEjggk7W

I started the UX Design program with a Graphic Design background. I also knew a bit about the UX Design basics. However, I can say that this course totally changed my mentality and approach to UX.
The course starts with a small project for the Intro course where you get a chance to understand the basics and learn how to learn from your tutor AND mentor!
Having mentors and tutors is the biggest asset actually. I loved them, they were so encouraging and always pushed me forward.
Then the main course starts and you will learn even more! If you go for the job guarantee, you will also have a job preparation course and a job mentor which will help you through your job application process which I personally found very helpful.
CareerFoundry was a game-changer for me and hopefully, your experience would be as pleasant as mine.

Good luck my friend! :)
