Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this UX design bootcamp relevant today?

Now more than ever, organisations are recognising the value of user-centred design, applying its principles everywhere from web experiences, to physical products, to service delivery. According to InVision, 92% of the mature design organisations can draw a straight line from the efforts of their design team to their company’s revenue. 

We see this reflected on job boards: 70% of design teams increased their headcount in the past year, and employers ranked UX/UI as the most in-demand product design title. What’s more, hiring managers place a high value on candidates who complement design and research knowledge with past experience in product management, marketing, engineering, and business strategy. Regardless of your professional background, there's ample opportunity to carve a fulfilling — and lucrative — career path.

Will I earn a UX design certificate?

Yes! Upon passing this course, you will receive a signed certificate of completion. Thousands of GA alumni use their course certificate to demonstrate skills to potential employers — including our 19K+ hiring partners — along with their LinkedIn networks. GA’s UX design programmes are well-regarded by many top employers, who contribute to our curriculum and partner with us to train their own teams.

What are the professional backgrounds of user experience design students?

User Experience Design Bootcamp students come from all walks of life but share one common mission: They are passionate about launching a career in design by learning to craft seamless human-computer interactions. We see career-changers from diverse professional backgrounds like graphic design, UI design, architecture, and marketing, as well as more far-flung fields like psychology and anthropology.

Are there any UX design prerequisites?

This beginner-friendly programme takes a holistic approach to UX, from sketching and wireframing to design and development using today’s top digital design tools. There are no prerequisites, although many students are familiar with common tools for graphic and web designers and some may have had exposure to UX concepts in the past. Once you enrol, we equip you with online, self-paced preparatory lessons to set you up for success. Dive into UX fundamentals and gain a common vocabulary to start collaborating with classmates on day one.

Whether you’re new to the field or you’re looking to formalise your practice, our curriculum helps you gain fluency in end-to-end UX processes, tools, and documentation and put them to work on the path to a new career in the field.

Our Admissions team can discuss your background and learning goals to advise if this UX design bootcamp is a good fit for you.

What does my tuition cover?

Here are just some of the benefits you can expect as a GA student:

  • Expert instruction in the skills you need to successfully transition into a UX career.

  • Self-paced pre-work to explore UX fundamentals and prepare to hit the ground running on day one of class.

  • Robust coursework, including expert-vetted lesson decks, project toolkits, and more. Refresh and refine your knowledge throughout your professional journey as needed.

  • A professional-grade portfolio to showcase your ability to solve real-world design challenges to potential employers and collaborators, including a mix of solo, team, and client work.

  • Individual feedback and guidance from instructors and TAs during office hours. Stay motivated and make the most of your experience with the help of GA’s dedicated team.

What projects will I work on during this UX design bootcamp?

For your capstone project, you’ll translate the culmination of your design skills into a professional client engagement. Team up with classmates to deliver UX research and designs for an app, website, or product in a three-week design sprint.

Throughout this Bootcamp, you’ll also compile a portfolio of solo and group projects designed to reinforce what you’ve learned in each unit. Gain hands-on experience with each step in the UX process and create professional-standard documentation spanning research synthesis, information architecture, user flows, wireframes, and more. 

Which format should I take this UX design bootcamp in — on-campus or online?

It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home. If you don’t live near a GA campus, have a busy travel schedule, or just want to save yourself the commute, a Remote course could be a good option for you, if available in your market. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.

If you prefer to learn alongside your peers and can make it to campus, our in-person courses allow you to take advantage of our beautiful classrooms and workspaces.

Our Admissions team can advise you on the best format for your personal circumstances and learning style.

What are my financing options for this UX design bootcamp?

We offer a variety of different financing options, including instalment plans and scholarships, so you can focus on what counts — your education. Speak with our Admissions team to learn more and find the best fit for you and your finances.
