“The one-on-one support from the UX Design Institute was really important. I was always able to email my questions to the team and get a quick response. The student Slack channel was very active and everybody was supportive. That kind of consistent help and guidance is not something you get with other providers.”

What are the admissions criteria?

There are no strict admissions criteria for this course. You will need to be comfortable learning in English. All video lessons, course materials, webinars, correspondence and the final exam are delivered in English. Unsure if the course is the right level for you? Our education advisors can help.

How is the course structured?

Each of the five modules is delivered entirely online, so you can complete the course at your own pace. You’ll have access to the course for three months.

How will I be assessed?

There will be a 40 minute online exam after you complete the five modules. This will make up your grade for the course.

Will I build a portfolio?

No. Our short course in UX design is for professionals who want to understand the benefits of UX, without becoming UX designers. Graded portfolio work is part of our Professional Diploma in UX Design.
