FAQ

Why is learning about User Experience relevant today? 

User Experience design is a crucial part of creating an effective customer experience. It is one of the key building blocks towards great web experiences, physical products and services. And it's a job in high demand. According to WEF's Future of Jobs 2020 report, 50% of all employees need reskilling to support digitised working processes.

Who will be my fellow bootcampers?

Among your fellow bootcampers you will meet graphic designers and visual designers, who want to upgrade their skills and become more strategic in their work, as well as professionals from connected Customer Experience disciplines who want to broaden their skills and accelerate their performance.

Can I follow the User Experience bootcamp besides my full-time job?

Yes, you can. We ask an average investment of 5-7 hours of learning per week. 4 hours of that investment will be during our weekly 4-hour live session. These sessions will be during the morning or afternoon, depending on the bootcamp schedule. The additional hours of learning will be homework, preparation, or the completion of online learning kits.

Are there any prerequisites to do this bootcamp?

Since this bootcamp is designed for entry-level knowledge of User Experience, there is no prior experience or knowledge necessary to follow along in the bootcamp. However, since all of our live sessions, learning kits and homework will be in English, you need a professional working proficiency level of English to make sure you achieve the best outcomes.

What kind of job can I get after this bootcamp?

Depending on your existing skillset and personal learning objectives, you will be able to pursue not only the roles as Junior User Experience roles, but also substantially increase your skills set in any Customer Experience field role.
