“I was looking for a career change that did not involve going through another 4-year program. This boot camp really prepared me to be career-ready and made the whole process of transitioning into a new field so much easier!

“I had a great experience with the UX/UI design program at UC Berkeley Extension. The curriculum equipped me with knowledge of the end-to-end design process and the projects helped me gain practical experience. I utilized the lessons, assignments and TAs as often as needed, which was very helpful as a result.” Danielle T.
“I chose to attend while I was furloughed at my current job and wanted to pursue something I'd been interested in for a while but didn't have the time to focus on. It was challenging, but with a supportive environment, inspiring teachers and exciting projects it was more than worth it. I now have a great job in a role I could only have dreamed of, and a strong foundation for a lifelong future in UX design.” Maya K.
