"I found the curriculum excellent. Even from before the course itself began, I found the course prep section really helpful. I really liked that there was a great balance between theory and practical applications and really have to congratulate on the structure of the course, building as it does from an intro to the tools and moving onward on each task to more complex themes. I found the platform really easy to use, intuitive and nicely designed."
Build an impressive portfolio
You’ll have the opportunity to add two new projects to your portfolio as part of our UX Design course—one for each course segment. Each of the projects that you’ll complete during the course will provide you with a rich array of portfolio pieces to showcase to potential employers. These include everything from user personas to your first pencil wireframe sketches, usability testing plans, and final, polished, high-fidelity designs.
Learn the tools you’ll use as a UX designer
We make sure students gain experience with best-practice tools, but our UX Design course is more than just technical tutorials — it's teaching you how to think, see, act and work like a designer.
CareerFoundry also has deals with many of the industry’s top software providers, meaning you’ll have access to discounts and free trials for industry-standard tools such as: Sketch, InVision, Balsamiq, Prott, Principle, Flinto, Proto.io and more!
There are no live tutorials or webinars, and you’re not required to be online at specific times. You'll have access to the course material in written form along with supplementary videos, and you'll work through the lessons in your own time, with your Tutor and Mentor reviewing them as you go.
Work towards project milestones
Your daily/weekly schedule may differ during the course due to the variety of your coursework and your other commitments. While the course is flexibly paced, you’ll still have a 5-month or 10-month deadline (depending on your pace) with interim milestones to keep you on track.
Get support & accountability
From extensive research, we know that the key to doing well is submitting tasks regularly and on time. We'll help you stay focused by providing you with a course progress and meter, as well as regular check-ins from your dedicated Student Advisor. If you need to take a break for vacation or sick days, this can be discussed with your Student Advisor—they're always there to help!
"I liked that my mentor provided the type of pushback that a supervisor in a real job would when reviewing my work. He held me to a high standard because he could see my potential."
Meet your dedicated team
A Mentor is a senior UX designer with 5-8 years of experience in the field. They’ll conduct detailed video reviews of each portfolio piece you complete throughout the course. You can schedule as many calls as you want with your Mentor via our platform's built-in calendar tool, ensuring you get support when you need it.

Maysoon, one of our Tutors
Your Student Advisor ensures you have the best possible course experience. Ask them about your overall timeline, billing, or getting general help.
Once you are halfway through the course, your Career Specialist will step in to help you devise a job-search strategy. With their expert guidance, you’ll refine both your resumé and portfolio, optimize your LinkedIn profile, and prepare for job interviews.
You’ll join a highly motivated and supportive community of fellow CareerFoundry UX design students. You will be able to get in contact with other students from your area while gaining a global network of future UX designers.
"I think one of the most important parts of the CF program is the unified community of like-minded individuals all in the middle of bettering themselves and working on their own career change. It creates this social web of support where anyone can reach out at any time for help. I started out new and overwhelmed at first, but seeing how supportive everyone was then and now is definitely something that I really appreciate. I’ve made a lot of tangible connections and friends with current students and past alumni this way and see tremendous value in it."
