What Our Students Are Saying

"The 8 weeks training course is a great introduction for a beginner looking to work in the field or anyone curious about the UX industry. Each three-hour workshop held once a week involved a trainer presenting their topics of expertise followed by a series of team exercises to expand on what was learned."

"This was first time I undertook an online course and I was unsure if this would work for me in contrast to learning in person, however, overall I have been impressed with the quality of teaching and the knowledge about UX I have gained."

Currently, courses are running remotely via live video with hands-on exercises and real-time interaction with tutors. Using shared whiteboard, team projects and remote team mentorship.
