    This course provided a lot of resources for me and a great mentor which made the learning experience very enjoyable. The mentor session provided an interactive and engaging element to the course. The projects allowed for a creative outlet for me to translate all the materials they've provided. Additionally, the course site was a very user-friendly and incorporated a lot of the things we learned.

    UX Academy Foundations

    I did not have UX/UI design experience. I was very impressed with the thorough training, the quality of the curriculum and the additional guidance I received in my mentor sessions. The course content is broken down into achievable goals/milestones, and I received helpful and specific feedback on my work (from my mentor). I also especially enjoyed talking with my mentor to learn about real-life applications of my work in the UX/UI field.

    UX Academy Foundations

    As someone who does not have a background in design, this was a great introduction/foundational course. The curriculum reading material was very clear and fun to read, and the projects were a great way to put learnings to practice.

    An Incredible School!

     DesignLab is an amazing school! I was looking for an introduction course into UX Design before proceeding to a full-time program and this program not only made me fall in love with the industry even more, but I feel as though it boosted my confidence transitioning into a new career path. I was stuck between DesignLab and a dew other schools, but what sold me is that with DesignLab. You work one-on-one with a mentor who is experienced in the industry and prepares you for what lies ahead....

    Review

    I’ve learned some of the most important parts of UX design. Now I’m more confident in knowing how to conduct research and generate artifacts. Within the course I had an ability to organize mini research and analyze all the data and insight into artifacts. I’ve never done it before and it was an amazing experience. After this course I understand better the importance of the research and now I know how much better the product can be, if we follow step by step product development process. <...

    A good start

    This is a good way to get into UX design, especially if you have no design experience. The course takes you through all the main principles together with great assignments.  A huge plus of this course is that you get assigned a mentor with whom you’ll be having weekly 1:1 sessions to go through your work and also get answers for any questions you may have regarding working in UX.

    Great preparation course for DesignLab UX academy bootcamp

    Completing UX Academy Foundation has prepared me immensely for the DesignLab UX Academy bootcamp. Not only it gave me solid foundation in design principles, but also time management and the discipline needed prior the UX bootcamp. Highly recommend this course if you're considering DesignLab UX Academy bootcamp!

    UX Academy Foundations

    I had a great experience in Designlab's UX Academy Foundations. I learned a look of basics about both UX/UI design, which has helped me quite a bit in my current UX Academy bootcamp. I love that the course is entirely self-paced, so it worked around my schedule. My weekly mentor calls helped me stay on track and provided personalized guidance on my projects. I also found the admissions and support staff to be extremely helpful.

    Instilling UX/UI foundations

    I attended Designlab’s beta UX Academy Foundations course over the summer of 2020. I had just gotten laid off due to covid and thought why not take the opportunity to finally change careers. I had a successful fashion design background that I’d been thinking about moving away from over the years, envious of other colleagues finding greener pastures. Never one to throw in the towel, it was finally my turn. 

    In my new career I wanted to utilize my visual design skills an...

    UX Foundations - The confidence and background I needed.

    At the beginning of this year I decided that I wanted to make a career change into the field of UX from teaching. Without having a design background I was intimidated to say the least. Designlab's 4 week Ux Foundations course gave me the background and confidence to apply for their UX Academy program that I am two projects away from finishing. The course was extremely helpful and my mentor was awesome. Thank you Designlab!

The community support and the 1:1 mentorship exceeded my expectations and I believe it is the reason why Designlab continues to have great reviews.

    Great intro course to UX Academy

    This course was great as a prerequisite to Designlab's UX Academy bootcamp. The mentorship program was awesome and reassured first-time design students like me whenever I had questions regarding the projects or design concepts. The community was so friendly and encouraging, and staff members were always available via Slack or email and responded to questions in a timely manner. The curriculum was good, albeit a bit reading heavy. Overall a great course and I would totally recommend it. <...
