UX design

UX Designers operate at the intersection of human behavior and market demand, with the latest technologies. A UX designer is a bridge between users, product managers, developers, and other stakeholders to ensure that the final product meets user needs and business objectives, and ultimately is a useable and enjoyable experience.

A UX designer is responsible for researching and understanding user needs, designing user interfaces, and testing and iterating on designs to ensure that they are effective and user-friendly.

A week at the UX course

Learn from professionals

Each week you will have online sessions lead by UX experts and industry guests to pass on their expertise. You will also get a digital course package with pre-recorded lectures and curated reading material for self-studies.

Work on your UX projects

Each week you will get a brief to practice the weekly skills and learnings. These briefs can be applied at your current workplace to solve real-world design challenges and combine work and studies. After each week you will demo your project and both give and receive feedback.

Digital meet-ups and teamwork

We don't do average online courses – we start friendships. Expect to work in a tech team from day one. Learn modern tools like Figma, Figjam and Notion to collaborate like professional UX designers. Remote is what we do best.

Make space in your calendar for the lectures and scheduled sessions with your team. The rest of the time is up to you to plan!

Intense, but flexible

We mix flexible remote self-studies that you plan yourself alongside scheduled weekly sessions with our coaches and your team. The course is full-time, but with applied learning at your workplace – meaning that what you learn will be useable during the course in your job and role.

FAQ

This course is full-time, is it possible to combine with work?

Yes, it is possible due to the fact that the coursework will be focused on challenges from your workplace. Expect the course to take 40 hours a week. Some of the workload - around 50% - can be applied on real-life problems from your job.

Is this course CSN approved?

Yes, for citizens in the Nordics, you can apply for CSN for this course.

Why is this a limited edition, will there not be more classes?

We're extremely grateful to be able to offer this course free of charge through Yrkeshögskolan in Sweden. However, we were granted this – very much last minute for us – due to an extension of the fall 2023 governmental budget. At this point we are not granted any more course starts except this one. Therefore this is a limited edition and a massive opportunity for anyone who has wanted to take our boot camps but felt that they are not looking for a complete career change or do not have the means to join otherwise. Join now or regret it forever.

What is the workload of this course?

This is a full-time course. For those of you that are familiar with us from before you know that we normally do high intensity boot camps. In comparison, this will be a more "normal" course tempo adjusted to profesionals. The workload will correspond to 40 hours a week where you can plan a lot of the time yourself.

Will this course give me the skills to start working with UX design?

This course is designed for you to be able to apply UX design methods on your current job – you will not become a full-featured UX designer. If you are interested in a career change to UX design we recommend our UX design boot camp.

Will I be able to upgrade this to the full boot camp later?

Simply put, we don't know. This course curriculum is a bit smaller than our boot camps and with a slightly other angle. We're not closing the door for that possibility but are not making promises either.

Hands-on creativity

We know that exploring and experimenting is key to learn new skills. We always focus on the how and to spark that creativity.

Real-world skills

Everything we teach is mirroring how the industry works. We teach modern industry standard tools, methods and knowledge.

Collaborative Learning

Expect to work in teams, discuss, give feedback to others. Together we are stronger. After our trainings you will be better equipped to keep up-to-date with the latest and to be an inspiration to your peers.

We're a female-founded, remote-first community helping people get a career they love. 90% of those attending our boot camps are women.
