"Great intro to UX design"

I really enjoyed the Springboard UX design program. It's self-paced, so you do have to have some motivation to finish / get work done, but I found the curriculum to be a great overview of all aspects of UX. I thought all the info was relevant and interesting,... Read More

As for timeline, I was able to finish the program in one month while also working a part time job. I only felt a little pressed for time at the very end when I was finishing up the final project.

The mentor calls were particularly helpful, especially for career and portfolio advice. Overall I thought this course was great and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in UX.

"Springboard UX Design School is one of the best classes any marketer can take"

I participated in the UX Design School in Summer 2015 and it was one of the best career investments that I have ever made. I wanted to learn more about UX Design and User Research and found this program. The courses are just as in-depth and intensive... Read More

The biggest thing to keep in mind is that what you get out of this program is based on how much work and effort you put into it. It can be easy to fall behind on course work, but if you do that you're only hurting yourself and your progress. After going through the course, I would recommend dedicating at least one weekend afternoon each week and one evening during the work week to focus on the course work and projects.

This is a great program and I hope everyone who enrolls gets as much out of it as I did.
