Testimonials

“Before joining the UX Intermediate Course in London, my user research toolkit was pretty limited to interviewing customers (with varying levels of success). Drafting explicit hypotheses, structuring effective ideation exercises and synthesising the findings are some of my key takeaways from the course. The best thing was to have access to teachers who are also experiment practitioners, full of pro tips around how to both get the job (career-wise) and do the job (skills wise). It gives that type of confidence that anyone investing in a product design (or even product, more broadly) career needs. Super useful and recommended.” – VITOR KNEIPP, Product Manager at Pivotal Labs – Intermediate UX Course

“With 3 years of UX Design experience, the course was a great way of consolidating all my knowledge and putting in practice all the theory I had learned. The main difference between this course and a University course is the approach. This program is much more industry-oriented. In fact, we worked on a project from the very start to the end, carefully building every single part, in order to create a good study showcase. This will allow me to add a great piece to my portfolio.” – SABRINA MORELLAT, UX/UI Designer – Intermediate UX
