Avg Rating:4.79 ( 42 reviews )

UX Design Institute is an accredited online UX design program that offers intensive 6-month or 12-month courses, resulting in a Professional Diploma in UX Design from the Glasgow Caledonian University. Courses cover UX principles, user research, analysis frameworks, interaction design, prototyping, and wireframing. The courses are delivered entirely online with video modules and regular mentor-led webinars. Each course has a dedicated mentor, all of which are UX professionals with years of industry experience. Students create several projects throughout their time in the program with the aim of enhancing their prospects in the job market. The programs conclude with a 2-hour exam required to receive the Diploma. 

UX Design Institute applicants don’t need experience in design or technology to enroll. Having one or both may help you advance, but the program was created with beginners in mind. Students are admitted on a case-by-case basis after a consultation with one of UDI’s Education Advisors. Applicants fill out an online form after which someone from the UX design institute will follow up to discuss enrollment. Critical factors in the initial discussion will be prior applicable skills, commitment to the program, and proficiency in English – all course communications are in English. After an applicant has been accepted, they can begin.

UX Design Institute works with an Industry Advisory Council which includes companies like Dell, Slack, Mastercard, SAP, and Virgin Media. The advisory board ensures that courses are continually updated with the skills students need to make them relevant in the job market. Alumni have gone on to work with companies like Amazon, Airbnb, Uber, and Google.

      Excellent! The content and the format is very well done. I did the course at my own rhythm and never felt alone or behind the group. Support in Slack is also very helpful.

      I liked that this course is self paced and time flexible. Leading a busy life and studying at the same time can be daunting and having the flexibility to complete the course in my time took a lot of weight off my shoulders. The way the course is structured shows that they gave a lot of thought into making sure its clearly articulated, concise and understood by different levels of learners. I was impressed by the support given from enrollment to the student success team checking up checking up on your progress, the student community sharing via slack, the mentorship via webinars. This course leaves you with the knowledge and skills needed to apply in the real world as a ux designer. The exam is not easy so make sure you absorb all the in-depth ux concepts presented to you throughout the course. Learn and understand, don't just learn, if that makes any sense. Because the course is university accredited it is proctored VERY strictly so be prepared and keep a positive mind frame before sitting the exam. An overall positive experience with the UX Design Institute.

      An excellent course covering the basics in terms of theory, combined with a schedule of projects that allow students to apply their learning practically as well as expanding on it.  The course is well delivered and clear, and faculty are very accessible; you are assigned a mentor at the beginning who you can contact via Slack easily. Would highly recommend to those interested in the subject area

      The course material was interesting, clear and easy to follow. The monthly project reviews during the webinars were really helpful, as well as the possibility to reach out to other students or mentors with questions or asking for appraisal. The projects were well-structured, not over-complicated (even for someone like me with no UX or Design experience) and at the same time offered a valuable opportunity to learn by doing. Career advice wasn't left as an  afterthought, and both students and instructos shared career opportunities and advice. I really enjoyed the free webinars and Q&A with UX professionals and the various inspirations and reading material that we were given as a way to further improve our skills independently. Overall I feel confident about the skills I have learned during the course and about the possibility of working in UX despite no previous experience in the field.

      Great course at a reasonable price, especially in comparison to others. I feel like I learned a good overview of the entire design process and walked away with an excellent case study. The mentoring is a great benefit of the course and I've felt very supported by my mentor, who I meet with weekly or bi-weekly. The career assistance helps with portfolio reviews after and gives a lot of assistance. As someone in the States, I would have appreciated a bit more guidance though on landing a job in competitive areas as I've been struggling to find a job post graduation. Some programs offer a tuition reimbursement if you can't land a UX job, and I would have liked to see that option given how difficult it can be to land your first UX role. Overall, 100% recommend.

      This is a great course for anyone looking to learn about UX. The course is flexible giving you the option to complete it within 6 or 12 months. The course content is great you get taught the theory and then through the projects you get to implement what you have learned and get experience using the software and tools. There is alot of support so you never feel like you've been abandoned. The mentors are great and there is a whole community of UX designers through slack that are always happy to guide you.

      This is an online course supported by the Caledonian University of Glasgow, with its roots in Dublin, Ireland. The main focus is User Experience, which has become an independent discipline of its own and the UX Design Institute stands for it as it is. With Colman Walsh and keen staff, UXDI strives for gaining results rather than acknowledgment as an education game-changer. With a tool such as Slack, students and facilitators can interact and chat with each other to share insights and ideas, even help each other to get tips and inspiration from person to person. 
      On the other side, they rule different workshops across Europe, find more information at www.uxtraining.com 
      In general, I loved the approach of the institute, and I highly recommend it. So don't hesitate to make a decision.

      I want to eat the whole world and this is thanks to the UX design Institute and its excellent support, its good distribution of content and its exquisite way of explaining each methodology. Today I not only understand what UX is about but I am more empathetic with people and I am more meticulous with details.

      I'd like to express my gratitude to the Student Success team for their assistance. I am overjoyed and grateful to have been accepted into the UX Diploma program. You have a fantastic team, which is why I enrolled in the visual design course as well! 
      The course was fantastic and easy to follow. Even if you have no prior experience with UX, this course is a great place to start. 
      Finally, a huge thank you to all of the mentors who took the time to guide us through the entire course.

    Thanks!
