Hey. It’s already June now, I just want to ask how are your experience there on UX Academy. I felt like admitting there, but for a citizen of a developing country like me and for a person that’s been dreaming breaking out as an unpopular UX Designer profession on this country right away (because our college education doesn’t really support nor have arts or UX related courses or schools offer it here, and because I just don’t feel and like the college education system and it’s culture at all, if felt like time wasted, effort wasted, so many money wasted, yet you barely learn anything at all, atleast on college curriculum here) I just want to know if the money is all worth it (I even can’t afford it yet tbh, for Americans or other else it still cheap but that’s a whole grand for us in developing countries. I still keep dreaming tho and still researching in case I could afford and admit on that 6 month life changing program. Maybe I’ll set up a crowdfunding or find someone to sponsor me a scholarship or something just to afford that?) I’m expecting to maybe guaranteed to have a job right away as they promised to have a career services (but as they’eve said themselves, the odds for international students are low), maybe help me have a job overseas, in the Silicon Valley or somewhere else, help myself and my family as I give back from the job I got and live independently.
For all these years after that program launched back in 2012, no one have ever reviewed that program and I want to hear someone in the interwebs (I mean I searched the internet, barely any reviews from Design Lab, if there’s any it’s their shorter specific courses, nothing for UX Academy) say something good about it. If you may, I think you’ve already passed the program, maybe you’re on Phase 3 right now or even in a job, maybe you could write a review once and for all for people like me. I really really want this UX Academy than anything else on the market out there, their website is good, that’s a sign of professionalism and what attracts me the most is they’re a platform. It means you’re like on virtual college really than just watching videos about your education. It’s like you’re paying for the whole virtual experience of a college solely for you to break out as a UX Designer.
Please tell me if that’s what I really think it is. Please write a review if you’re comfortable at saying things now or if you’re really finished now
