Don't Take Our Word For It. 
Here's what people say about us:

It was a whole new experience. I got to interact with people from different backgrounds, some working professionals, and some were still students like me. Discussing with them putting up challenges for each other and then coming up with solutions together, was kind of an amazing experience for us. 

The unique thing about the training is that we put forward our points to mentors and we were challenged with different perspectives

The highlight of the training was the discussions and the Q&A sessions because we would not just be learning from the mentors but also the peers.

For an aspiring designer who is thinking to join this program, I would say - go for it without even thinking twice because it's a whole new experience for you. Even if you're exploring your options and you want to go for some workshop and stuff, this is the program you should go for.

I am an aspiring UX designer. I've been working in the field of development as well as in digital marketing before but I made the switch to UX design now. UX is a lot different than what you think and what you read on the internet, and if you really want to work in in the UX industry, get a job in a company, or create your own stuff, you have to know the basics of UX, and the training actually helps you cover that part.
The most unique part of this program was that the mentors were not there to give you the correct answers, their purpose was to make you reach the correct answer. This helped us push our mindset towards a more problem-solving mindset.

To connect all the dots, the training, as its name suggests,
will give you that the kickstart you need to build your UX career.

Final Year CSE Student
I'm a senior associate at Ernst & Young global delivery services. Prior to the training, I did one online course from Coursera. It was theoretical - getting your facts and knowledge in, whereas the Kickstarter training was more on the industry side - introducing us to concepts and tips to be kept in mind while working as a designer in an actual company.

The training was an amazing experience. We had a lot of assignments, quizzes, and group discussions. To sum it up it was informative, insightful, and productive .

My experience with Kickstarter showed me a path on how to actually structure our learning process and prioritize things. This helped me to build my confidence to explain the problem like an experience.

If you are an aspiring designer, if you are looking to start off your UX career very strongly, then I think you should take the UX Kickstarter program as they have the best mentors available
Design mentors explain things very, very precisely, they help you with your thought process. They provide different ways to explain things that will actually spark something in our minds and ignite our thinking process.
UX Kickstarter program will Kickstart your whole design thinking process from scratch

I've been to other training programs. The Kickstarter program is different as they have group discussions and an interesting way of teaching.
I have experienced a unique way of learning things. Unlike other programs, the Kickstarter program selects one topic and makes you aware of different vibrant aspects of that topic.
The highlight of this training program is they make you think and they make you defend what you think. If you make some opinion of a topic or of what you think they tell you to stand for it and be accountable for them.
For an aspiring designer, I would suggest just take this program because the way you think and approach things will change after this program.

The UX Kickstarter program is very different because in this program you get to practice more than other programs. On a few other platforms, they teach you about the theory and the concepts, but here they make you practice the concepts. So this is what I found different in this program and it really helped me a lot. 
The UX Kickstarter program has been amazing. I've read about the things before, but coming here discussing things with the peers and mentors, doing sessions and assignments, helped me remember my concepts and bring them to work.
For any aspiring designer, I would suggest not to overthink much. I was wondering if I have to take this course or not and I am really happy that I pursued this course.
The mentor relationship with the students has been really amazing. I mean, they're all always there to help you. At any time during the sessions or after the sessions, if you have any problem, you can just directly contact them and resolve the issues you have.
