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?
UXDI 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.
