    Amazing and valuable educational experience!

    I had such an amazing and valuable experience with Design Lab's UX/UI foundations coursework. Specifically the layout of the platform was easy to navigate.  The detailed information that was provided assisted with any questions or assistance I may have needed to understanding what I was learning. The best part of DL was being assigned a personal mentor to help guide you through the design applications and techniques.

    Rigorous but enjoyable, worth it!

    I decided to transition from marketing into design in late 2021. I did a lot of research, like spreadsheet comparisons and all. I finally decided on DL's UX Foundations and Academy program because it has everything I was looking for: asynchronous curriculum with live mentor sessions and group sessions to keep progress in check; a fair price; multiple projects covering all aspects of design.

    First of all, Foundations course really helped me who has zero design background to get fam...

    Great Experience!

    I really enjoyed the UX Academy Foundations course! The content was laid out in a logical and easy to understand way. Each unit (1-7) consisted of some readings and tutorial videos, followed by practice exercises, then a unit project. I felt like the readings and practice really prepared me for the project. The content presented in each unit built nicely upon each other and prepared me for the 10 hour design challenge in Unit 8. By the end of the course I felt like I had a good grasp on ...

    The best decision for a career switch

    I would highly recommend Designlab's UX Academy course if you are planning to switch careers to UX Design. 1-1 mentorship, student community, group critic sessions, flexible class hours, career services are just few of the many amazing aspects of the program.

    UX Academy

    Definitely loved the mentorship and the group critiques. They both allowed me to come out of my shell and be more confident in my design thinking. For anyone who's looking to switch career paths, DesignLab is a great place to get into UX Design. Idid the part-time route and worked part-time at my accounting job. Once I completed the program, I was able to land an internship in a couple months, then landed a full-time job a few months after that. If you know this is the field you want to ...

    Couldn't be happier with my Mentor

    The best part about Designlab is the mentorship. While the massive slack community is there as a constant support, my mentorship meetings gave me the personal 1-on-1 advice I needed to help me confident in my career transition to UX. I couldn't be happier with my experience!

    While thinking I needed a career change and the research that goes with it, I ran across Designlab.  After reading I wanted to move forward with the UX Academy.   I saw where they wanted you to do the Foundations course first before the UX Academy.  I thought it was a great idea (the $500 spent on the Foundations course goes towards the tuition of the UX Academy) to get my feet wet first to make sure Designlab was a good fit with me and to make sure it was worth it.  All I can say is, is...

    UX Academy Foundations

    I decided to switch careers to UX Design after multiples years in customer experience and international sales. I choose Designlab mostly for its community and curriculum. The group crits feature was one the most appealing to me, being able to study on my own but still share about my work and help others every week. The community is really great and I was able to discuss often with my peers. I always had plenty of students helping me out with my design choices or research. Designlab commu...
