How Long Does It Take to Become a UX Designer?

Ready to start your career in Design? Find out more about BrainStation's UX Design Bootcamp

Depending on your current experience, you may be able to acquire the skills you need to become a UX Designer in as little as 12 weeks.

For people with a design background, programs like BrainStation’s UX Design bootcamp can teach the specific skills you need to gain an edge in the field, and which may not have been covered in your design training—things like user research, the development of personas, wireframing, and user testing, for example.

For people coming from a programming or development background, the same bootcamp, or even a more design-focused course like BrainStation’s UI Design course, can add a grasp of color, typography, imagery, and layout to your tech skills, and give you valuable experience with design thinking and how to take projects from ideation to completion.

For people with no experience in either area—for instance, those coming from psychology or the social sciences—bootcamps are an excellent way to develop your capabilities on both sides.

What Is a UX Design Bootcamp?

The best UX design bootcamps, like BrainStation’s UX Design bootcamp, provide an immersive, project-based learning experience, designed to transform your skill set and launch a new career in design.

Typically, students of UX design bootcamps dive into hands-on learning opportunities that cover design research and strategy, prototyping and usability testing, user interface design, and responsive design. You can expect to spend around 40 hours in the classroom, as well as 20 to 25 hours per week to complete projects. At the end of the program, you’ll have not only a new set of UX design skills, but an industry-ready portfolio as well.
