Know your time commitment
Before signing up for a UX/UI bootcamp, consider whether you can commit to full-time learning. In some cases, part-time or self-paced bootcamps may work better.
Many bootcamps are intensive and don’t give students time to work outside of the curriculum. Given the complexity and quantity of UX/UI courses, some students need to immerse themselves in order to master the skills they need. However, full-time bootcamps also allow graduates to enter the workforce and often land well-paying jobs faster than their part-time counterparts.
Before committing to a bootcamp, ask yourself: How long can you actually commit?
Consult job offers
Before committing to a UX/UI bootcamp, check to see if the provider offers a job guarantee. These guarantees provide tuition refunds to learners who do not receive a qualifying job offer within a certain time (often six months) after graduation.
In many cases, job guarantees require applicants to apply for a certain number of jobs per month. Note that declining a qualifying job offer may void a job guarantee.
You should also investigate potential bootcamp hiring partners. If a bootcamp’s partner companies match your career goals, the program may be a good fit.
Consider your future goals
Be honest with yourself when choosing from the best UX/UI bootcamps. What do you want to get out of your bootcamp? How fast are you looking to enter the jab market? What kind of buying power are you looking for? How do you hope your career evolves? What area of technology could you excel in based on your natural inclinations and skills?
Answering these questions can provide a lot of clarity when choosing among programs.
