User Experience

UX designers focus on the user journey, designing how users interact with products or services. UX designers define a digital product’s optimal experience to ensure it’s engaging and user friendly.

UI board
User Interface

UI designers define the look and feel of a product, application, or website while considering optimal ease of use. UI designers optimize for varied functionalities, and contexts using branding, color, images, and typography.

Course Pace Options

We offer two course pace options designed to give you the flexibility and structure to support your success. As a Flatiron School student, you’ll receive individual support from instructors and access to virtual study groups for a personalized learning experience. Choose the program pace option that best suits your life, schedule, and career goals.

In both pacing options, you’ll build your work portfolio with team-based design projects for real-world clients.

Full-Time

Graduate in 6 months with the accelerated course pace: full-time. Expect 40–60+ hours per week of coursework. Benefit from dedicated, full-time learning. This option requires the most commitment – you’ll attend live study groups, complete group projects, and collaborate with others in your cohort throughout the day.

Icon: Structure
Part-Time

Graduate in 11 months at a pace that offers the same curriculum as the full-time program. Expect 20-30+ hours per week of coursework and benefit from a structured, yet flexible, schedule designed to keep you on track. During the client phase, you’ll invest considerable time to successfully complete group projects.

A fast-track career curriculum that will help you land a job in the field of design.

Our online UX/UI design courses are taught by industry experts and combine flexible online learning with a team-based experience.

Online UX/UI Design is divided into five phases. You’ll learn at a part-time pace in phase one, regardless of your selected course pace. After phase one, you’ll join your choice of a full-time or part-time cohort for team-based design and client projects.

For the UX track, Phase 2-5, all projects are group-based. For the UI track, Phase 3-5, projects are group-based.

This means you’ll work like a real design team member to get the project done - divide responsibilities and tasks or project manage deliverables. Technical training, bundled with apprenticeship-style project work and personalized career coaching, creates an experience that’s designed to help you become a highly sought-after UX or UI designer.

UX/UI Online Alumni 1

“I was lucky to be surrounded by hard working people who pushed each other to be better. It felt like everyone really cared about their projects, and no one was ever satisfied with an easy solution. We weren’t afraid to challenge each other, which was awesome.”

UX/UI Online Alumni 2

“Having the ability to develop real projects for real clients makes the experience more than just a school—it makes it like an internship. I was able to have real world experience juggling my design workload, client needs, and team relationships.”

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 the designer’s interests: UX designer, UX researcher, and interaction designer. On the UI side, depending on the designer’s interests: UI designer, visual designer, and communication designer. The skills gained during this course form a partial but important foundation for additional 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.

Who will I be learning alongside?
  • We don’t admit students, we craft a class. A lawyer, journalist, and pro-athlete will do more interesting things together than three people of any one background - with your 1 year WeWork membership you’ll expand your network with students of varied backgrounds but the same passion to design a career they love.

  • A wide range of professions have been represented among graduates of Flatiron School’s 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.

  • Any past experience with design helps even more, but some of our most successful graduates had no design experience before applying.

What skills will I have learned by the end of the course?
  • Understand foundational design know-how and concepts.

  • Utilize knowledge of industry-standard software and use cases.

  • Collaborate as a team member on group and client projects.

  • Learn how to solve real design problems with real business stakeholders.

  • Create a real, unique portfolio.
