Students are admitted on a case-by-case basis after a consultation with one of our Education Advisors. Key factors we’ll discuss with you include:
You don’t need experience in design or technology to enrol in our courses, although having one or both is a definite bonus. Our students come from a diverse mix of backgrounds, including project management, development, graphic design, product management, business analysis and so on.
You do need to be motivated and committed. We set a high bar. Studying for one of our professional qualifications requires a certain amount of time, energy and focus. Our team will be there to support you along every step of the way but success will come as a result of your own diligence.
You need to be comfortable learning in English. All video lessons, course materials, webinars, correspondence and the final exam are delivered in English.
There are two learning paths available to you:
The most popular option is to follow the six-month structure. Each month you are given a deadline with a number of video lessons to complete. A monthly mentor-hosted webinar allows you to discuss coursework to date, ask questions and get feedback on your assignment.
Alternatively, according to your personal time constraints, you can complete the course entirely at your own pace. As the course is delivered entirely online, it means that you’re free to complete it whenever you are free. You’ll still be able to take part in any of the webinars - either live or catching up through recordings. Once enrolled, you'll have access to all of the course materials for twelve months.
Yes. Each course has a dedicated mentor. All our mentors are top-class UI professionals with many years of experience working in the field. Your mentor will host your monthly webinars, and will be available during those sessions to answer questions, review projects and keep you motivated.
Yes. Practical work is a huge part of the course. You’ll complete an assignment which involves a series of practical exercises to give you hands-on experience in UI design. This assignment showcases your skills, your mindset and your experience. It’s something you can showcase to prospective employers to demonstrate the skills you’ve acquired during the course.
Yes, if you want to. Each course is limited to a maximum of 75 people. This allows you to build relationships with your fellow students on a dedicated Slack channel, and collaborate on projects and study time.
