How You'll Learn

Delivery

The majority of your learning will take place within the classroom, allowing you to take each day’s concepts and work with your peers to apply them to a project. There will be time allocated for individual project work as well, and you’ll be expected to spend time outside of class to learn new concepts.

Adaptive Curriculum

The full-time UX Design curriculum puts a strong emphasis on hands-on and collaborative learning to mimic the real-world experience of a UX Designer. The content is developed based on what our Educators work with day-to-day, and is adapted in real-time based on what is trending in the industry.
