But I don’t know anything about UX...

Previous experience with related fields such as project or product management, visual or graphic design, development and QA will help you to better understand the industry, but it’s also ok if you want to start from scratch.

Our instructors will not just teach you all the methodologies but also mentor you through the process of becoming a UX designer. With small groups and best students/teachers ratio you will have a personalized approach helping you to succeed. All you need to have is a laptop and strong desire to become a UX designer.

The rest is our job.
