Careerfoundry is demanding but absolutely worth it

The courses are demanding (at least mine on UX design was). We covered practical topics (invision, sketch) but also more general ones (end to end design). The whole experience is incredibly rewarding. The support from the various tutors is fabulous. You can also count on the Slack channel and the community of other students for help. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking about going into this field.
