Due to COVID-19, Telerik Academy Alpha and Upskill programs may be held online partially or fully, depending on the situation.
Here is how we continue to provide stellar IT training online.
Supercharge your career with the most complete UX/UI Design program. Master two of the most in-demand and highest-paid design skills that will make you an invaluable asset to your team and highly sought-after by employers. Learn from Bulgaria’s leading UX and UI experts who will share verified frameworks and hands-on methodologies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 a sample of your creative work. We’ll help you sharpen and expand your portfolio with our free pre-course training. That’s it, there’s no entrance exam.

UX Consultant, Co-founder & CEO,
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.
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.
From defining the business goals and the user personas to creating a polished user interface, the course was invaluable to my future career development. I highly recommend it!
The program is an outlier because it simulates a real-life experience. I value the opportunity of creating a tangible product – addressing the needs of the users and improving their experience.
To practice and showcase everything mastered in the program, participants create an end-to-end design for a digital product and publicly present it. Here are snippets from just a few of their amazing projects.
We’ve built this program in collaboration with experts from leading companies and exponentially growing startups to provide the most comprehensive practical program in Bulgaria.
