Why become a UI designer?

A creative job you will love

UI is a satisfying job if you are curious about human behavior and passionate about how design shapes the products and services around you. UI Designer was rated as one of the 100 best jobs in America for 2017.

(CNN Money/PayScale)

High demand means high pay

Employers struggle to find qualified UI designers and the demand keeps growing. The average Junior UI Designer salary in the United States is $74,953 per year, while Senior UI Designers can earn as much as $107,086.

(Glassdoor Salaries Report, 2018)

A flexible career path

As a UI designer, you will have the opportunity to work for startups, agencies, large corporates, on a freelance basis, or even remotely.

Success Stories

If you feel like you are not living up to your potential, are underchallenged and perhaps underpaid, it might be time to move into a UI design career. Many of our students were frustrated with their jobs and were unsure how to change things until they took our program and went on to launch new, challenging, interesting careers.

This program has been essential in my transition from a Graphic Designer to a UI designer. Being able to get direct feedback from an amazing mentor and fellow students has expedited the learning process that I was struggling with on my own.

Admission criteria

What you need:

 

The motivation to transform your career

The program requires commitment as it takes about 360 hours to complete. You should be prepared to set aside at least 15 hours per week to study.

 

A computer and an internet connection.

For now, the UI Program is not suitable for non-Mac users.

 

An interest in UI design

If you are already reading books and blog posts about UI, that is a great sign. If you are unsure that UI is really for you, you can find out in the following ways:

What you don’t need:

 

A background in design or tech

You don’t need a college degree or previous work experience that is related to design or tech in order to be successful on the program or land a job. The program has been built to take you from beginner to job-ready. A study by job board Indeed found that 84% of employers think bootcamp grads are ‘more prepared’ or ‘just as prepared’ to be high performers as degree holders. (Indeed)

 

Unlimited free time

You can study part-time alongside your job with an average of 15 hours per week to finish the program in 9 months, which is the maximum program length. You can also complete the program faster than this by committing more than 15 hours per week to the coursework.
 

To learn all on your own

The program combines the flexibility of online learning with the accountability and one-on-one attention traditionally associated with brick-and-mortar institutions. Much like a college professor might inspire you to pursue a career in a certain field, your Mentor, Tutor, Career Specialist, and Student Advisor will all help keep you motivated and on track.

FAQ

1. Should I learn UI or UX design (or both)?

3. What’s the refund policy if I change my mind?

You will be ready for “Junior UI Designer” or “UI Designer” roles based on the curriculum. If you have transferable skills from your past career, you can potentially get a more senior role by crafting the right story with your Career Specialist. Many job ads for UI designers ask for 2+ years’ experience, but it is very often part of their “wishlist” rather than a requirement.
