Become a well-rounded UX and UI professional. Learn from the best.

You’ve got a background in design, are fascinated by digital products and want to work in tech? Then pursuing a profession as a UX and UI designer is perfect for you. Choosing the combination of these roles, means you will be highly sought after by employers and will be held in high esteem within your company.

With classes up to 3 nights a week, this most complete UX and UI program makes it possible to also balance work or other responsibilities.


  • Who is this for?

    If you are a designer, an illustrator, a visual arts student or graduate, looking to join the IT industry and work in one of the most in-demand non-developer roles in tech, this program is the best first step. You don’t need previous UX or UI experience. You only need to be 18 years of age or older.

  • What do UX Designers do?

    UX (User Experience) designers serve as the voice of the users. Laser-focused on how something works and how people interact with it, they are vital to every digital product organization.

  • What do UI Designers do?

    UI (User Interface) designers make sure that every interaction with the finished product aligns with the vision of the UX designers. UI professionals obsess over the look of the product, define interaction models, design layouts and build prototypes.

  • How can I apply?

    To join you need to demonstrate at least basic design/illustrator skills that are essential to your success in this program. You must submit a portfolio with your designs, or if you don’t yet have one - a sample of your creative work will do. That’s it, there’s no entrance exam.
