A must-have foundation for anyone getting into UXR or considering conducting more UX research as a part of their day-to-day. I think the content is clear, concise, and relevant with pragmatic examples that tell enough of a story to keep you engaged, but not so much that your mind wanders. Joining the AllWomen community, having live sessions with experts, and accessing a great variety of content made this a fun and useful course.
Ps. Highly recommend you to join the AW Slack community, and check out their actionable, insightful content and events/conferences.

The UX/UI bootcamp offers 100 hours of remote, live classes, while the UX online course has 30 hours of learning through pre-recorded videos, lectures, exercises and podcasts. . The bootcamp comes with a Hiring Fair and multiple professional development sessions, which aren’t included in the online courses. In short, the bootcamp is great for women wanting to change careers or looking for a big deep dive, while not having any relevant previous experience. On the other hand, the online course is perfect for those looking to learn more or explore the field without necessarily making a career switch.

It all depends on which area of tech you would like to go into! Like UI Design, the UX Research, Data Analytics, and Product Management online courses offer the same learning and development features, just focussed on a different tech role. We recommend having a call with our admissions team to talk about your goals and the skills and knowledge you want to learn, and our team can help you decide which course is right for you.
