What the application process looks like

Design aptitude is built from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, chef, biologist, and artist will approach solutions differently, and bringing them together creates a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All you need is passion and an open mind.

Frequently asked questions

What jobs are graduates prepared for?
  • On the UX side, depending on your interests: UX designer, UX researcher and interaction designer.

  • On the UI side, depending on your interests: UI designer, visual designer, and communication designer.

  • The skills gained during this course also forms a foundation for roles like content strategist, information architect, UX writer, UI engineer, product designer, and product owner.

  • In terms of job types, graduates are prepared for full-time salaried and part-time jobs, internships, apprenticeships, and contract and contract-to-hire roles.

When do I choose between UX or UI?

In Week 5 of Design Essentials. By that point, every designer is exposed to principles and practices of UX and UI, and has enough information about their skills and interest in both areas to choose one. Additionally, the mandatory one-on-one with the Design Essentials instructor helps provide external perspective on the decision.

What are the professional backgrounds of designers in the course?

Just about every profession has been represented among graduates of our curriculum: Lawyers, chefs, ballet dancers, baristas, options traders, architects, preschool teachers, biologists, and many, many others. Any professional experience focused on practicing the soft skills needed for a design career—teamwork, customer service, research, storytelling, client management, project management, creative thinking, a desire to learn—is pretty easily transferable to this course. And any past experience with design helps even more, but some of our most successful graduates had no design experience before applying.
