Why become a UX designer?

A creative job you will love

UX is a satisfying job if you are curious about human behavior and passionate about how design shapes the products and services around you. UX Designer was rated as one of the best 15 jobs in America for 2017.

High demand means high pay

Employers struggle to find qualified UX designers and the demand keeps growing. The average Junior UX Designer salary in the United States is $69,489 per year, while Senior UX Designers can earn as much as $119,841.

UX Design Course Admission Criteria

What you need:


The motivation to transform your career

The course requires commitment as it takes about 600 hours to complete. You should be prepared to set aside at least 15 hours per week to study.


A computer (Mac or PC) and an internet connection.


An interest in UX design

If you are already reading books and blog posts about UX, that is a great sign. If you are unsure that UX 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 course or land a job. The course 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 course in 10 months, which is the maximum course length. You can also complete the course faster than this by committing more than 15 hours per week to the coursework.


To learn all on your own

The course 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.

A Job Guarantee

We back our course with a job guarantee because we know it’s great. 96% of our eligible alumni land a UX design job within 180 days of graduating.


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

Both UX and UI involve creativity, technical skills, and an understanding of human motivations, but they are focused on different stages of the design process. Here is an article explaining the differences and how to figure out which one is for you.

2. Are there payment plans available?

Yes, you can select a monthly payment plan of Note: You will be required to pay the full duration of the payment plan even if you finish the course before the payment plan ends.
Still doesn’t work for you? Book a call with a Career Advisor and see if you are eligible for a custom payment plan.

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

If you start the course but are not completely satisfied, simply cancel within 14 days and receive a full refund.
If you enroll and for some reason want to cancel before 60% of the course time has elapsed, you get a prorated refund based on remaining time and your payment plan details. See the full terms and conditions here.

4. What’s the "catch" for the job guarantee?

Our policies are very transparent and easy to follow. You need to live in or near a city of 200K people, apply to 5 jobs a week, and a few more reasonable requirements. See the full terms and conditions here. Or click here to talk to a Career Advisor about whether you would be eligible for the job guarantee.

5. What kind of job can I get after the course?

You will be ready for “Junior UX Designer” or “UX Designer” or “UX/UI designer” (if you choose the UI specialization) roles based on the curriculum. If you have transferable skills from your previous career, you can potentially land a more senior role; your Career Specialist will help you to craft the right story. Many job ads for UX designers ask for 2+ years of experience, but it is often part of their “wishlist” rather than a requirement.

6. Do I get a certificate at the end?

You will receive a certificate when you complete the course to make your new qualifications easy for employers to see.

7. Is UX design a secure career choice?

According to a recent survey conducted by Adobe, 87% of hiring managers said that getting more UX design talent on board is the number one priority for their organization. In fact, 73% of hiring managers plan to double the number of UX designers in their organization over the next 5 years.

8. Are there course requirements?

You need to have at least a B2 level in written and spoken English, a computer, (Mac or PC ) and an internet connection. Mac is preferred since we teach Sketch which is a Mac-only program. However, the course suggests alternatives and provides resources for PC users.

9. How long does the course take?

The course is flexibly-paced within a 10-month duration. There are 3 deadlines within the course that are in place to ensure you remain on track. You should expect to put in approximately 15 hours a week, but you can allot more time to your study in order to finish the course faster.

10. Is the course 100% online?

Yes, the course is entirely online so that you can study flexibly according to your own schedule. You get access to our active student community on Slack and, after the course, you will have a global network of other ambitious alumni and mentors to support you.

11. Can I take the course for free?

We do not offer any full scholarships or funds at this time.

12. What if I have a question that isn’t answered here?

You can email us or book a call with a Career Advisor here to get all of your questions answered promptly.
