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 simply 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.

What are the professional backgrounds of designers in the course?

A wide range of professions have 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 that requires soft skills — teamwork, customer service, research, storytelling, client management, project management, creative thinking, a desire to learn—is pretty easily transferable to this course and applicable for a design career.   And any past experience with design helps even more, but some of our most successful graduates had no design experience before applying.

When does a designer select UX or UI as their area of focus?

In Week 5 of Design Essentials. By that point, every designer is exposed to the 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.

Do I need my own computer?

You will need to ensure you have a suitable computer to study on this course. See specific computer requirements here. You can also ask our Admissions team about your best options for buying or renting.
