Application

UX-UI-Application
  • 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/illustration 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.

Upskilling professionals

As a graphic designer, the UX part was a completely new area of expertise for me. The course helped me learn the fundamentals and practice the new skills by creating a product from scratch. The overall vibe of the program was both competitive and interactive, stimulating both my personal and professional growth.

Elena DraganovaElena Draganova

The course provides a comprehensive hands-on experience, which strikes the right balance between theory and practice. The program taught me how to prioritize functionality, simplicity, and consistency over spontaneous decisions in my design. Not to mention the great improvement in my teamwork and presentation skills.
