How You'll Learn

Delivery

You will spend the majority of your learning experience inside the classroom, with an emphasis on hands-on project work to help you solidify the concepts you’ll be learning each day. You’ll be expected to be learning on your own time outside of classroom hours too. This will allow you to maximize your time with the Educators, asking questions and diving into project work.

Adaptive Curriculum

The full-time UX Design curriculum is constantly updated based on what is being used by industry professionals, so you'll graduate with the skills needed to design with cutting-edge tools and resources.

Become a Lifelong Learner

By the end of the 10 weeks, our goal is to empower you to be a lifelong learner; problem-solving skills and resourcefulness are crucial traits to possess if you’re looking to work in tech, as new technologies are constantly replacing old ones.

“You will not only learn hands-on skills in your respective field of study, but also learn how to learn. Our educational delivery model reflects this; you will be pushed to challenge your own assumptions and adopt new mindsets on the regular. This iterative approach to learning is indeed intense, and is only possible thanks to the extensive support you will receive from our talented Educators who are also expert lifelong learners themselves.”
