I’ve decided I ought to get involved here in the forum. So, now that I’m looking at it I see your questions. Sorry for the late reply!
I thought the careerfoundry.com course was very good. They cover lots of aspects of ux design, you get to develop a good project, adding pieces as you go, and having a mentor was brilliant. You get to email them during the week and have a video Skype call once each week.
They’ve raised the price since I signed up, so it’s a harder choice now.
What you don’t get compared to a brick and mortar school (like General Assembly) is talking to and working in teams with other designers, or even developers.
If you’ve got the money, and some time (I did it while working for myself and having a light workload…the reason for my career change!), and don’t have a local school or prefer to study online, I’d definitely recommend it.
I have to admit I’m still working on filling out my portfolio…need to buckle down and do some more of my own projects. So I haven’t applied for any jobs yet!
