1.    Who is the course for?
Our specialization courses are designed to help people in the field of design to become experts in one focused area. So while there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is somewhat advanced.

Because of this, it’s ideal if you have practical experience in design (user research and testing, personas, prototyping and wireframing, etc.)—or you’re enrolled in our UX Design Program.

If you’re uncertain whether you have the experience you need to take this course, just reach out to a program advisor—they’re happy to help!
2.    Are there payment plans available?
Yes, we offer two payment options for your specialization course. First, you can save a little money by paying your full tuition up front. If that’s not feasible, you can pay a set amount up front (varies depending on currency), and then the remainder in three monthly payments.
3.    Is the course 100% online?
Yes, the course is entirely asynchronous and online—so you can study when and wherever you’d like so long as you can get online and complete the course on time.

But this doesn’t mean the learning experience is isolated or lonely! You’ll have your mentor, tutor, and student advisor there to support you—as well as access to our active student community on Slack.
4.    What will I have by the end of the course?
By the end of the course, you’ll have specialized knowledge and experience in UI design, and a complete, mentor-reviewed project to feature in your professional portfolio. Just what you need to stand out in the field as the expert you’ll be.

When you complete the course, you’ll also receive a signed CareerFoundry certificate. This will make it easy for you to share your new qualification on LinkedIn and with potential employers or clients.
5.    How long does it take to complete the course?
If you set aside 15-20 hours per week to study, you’ll complete the course in approximately two months (eight weeks). If you’re able to devote 30-40 hours per week, you can complete the course in about a month (four weeks).
6.    Is the course content practical and hands-on?
We take a rigorously practical approach to learning. You’ll have the opportunity to apply everything you learn in practical ways. Every exercise builds up to a completed portfolio project that your mentor will review and that will show employers the in-demand skills you learn in the course.
7.    What are the minimum requirements (prerequisites, system, hardware, tools)?
Beyond having some experience in UX design, all you need to succeed in this course is:
  • The motivation to set yourself apart as a specialist in the field
  • An interest in UI design
  • Written and spoken English skills at a level B2 or higher

In addition, there are a few tools you’ll need, as well as some system/hardware requirements to be aware of. You can check out all the course details in the UI for UX Designers information sheet.

8.    Do I have to pay for the tools?
The course includes instructions for using Sketch (cost is $50), or Adobe (one month free trial, then a minimum of $9.99 per month depending on the tool you choose). You can decide which tool best suits your interests and budget. If you prefer to use a free tool, Figma is a great alternative.

Any other software you’ll need will either be free or available with free trials, which will be valid for the duration of the course. You can, of course, opt for paid tools, but the cost is not included in the course tuition.
9.    What’s included in the course tuition?
This course offers immersive training in the field of UI design—including expert-authored curriculum, hands-on projects, and personalized mentorship and support from experts in the field. Everything you need to stand out in the field as the specialist you’ll be.

While the course is not university accredited, it does undergo a rigorous quality assurance and certification process with the ZFU (Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht)—the state body for distance learning in Germany.

This process ensures that the course meets a high stand for an excellent and effective learning experience.
