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.

      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.

      Great course, very well structured. Ability to learn at own pace and time. Very helpful and you will have access to friendly subject matter expert tutors and staff, they are always willing to help and support if needed. Slack channel with tutors and staff was great, not so much with fellow learners as communication with them was to a minimum. The live webinars (always recorded for viewing convenience) and workshops run by the UX Design Institute are top-notch! The mentor will provide live examples on how to design the UI of a product and also provide feedback on your work in progress UI design screens. Would definitely recommend this course for anyone considering getting into UI Visual Design in particular and also the other course they offer in UX Design. The courses are credit-rated, which is a plus and adds credibility to your CV and LinkedIn profile. To pass you will need to take an exam, don't worry, If you enjoyed learning about the topic and put in the effort you will be just fine. Knowledge is Power! Best of luck in your career.

      This was my first formal education in UX and I really enjoyed it!
      There is a great mix of very interesting theory and practical projects to work on.
      The course is flexible and you can do it at your own pace or do it at the recommended structured timeline of 6 months and have you up to 12 months to finish the course.

      the project was great, it was engaging and challenging. I learned so many different skills from research to using figma and had great fun along the way!

      The mentors are really lovely too! 
      There is also a Slack group for students which is really useful and lots of insightul info on there too.


      Thank you very much

      Took this course with a background as a product manager. Wanted to learn more about really understanding how we can create great products for the customers. The course gave me the toolset and practical skills to do this research myself but also allows me to recruit, with confidence, UX designers for my team. 

      Great course and content. Took the self-paced course that took me 8 months. Suggested reading list is also a great introduction to this field.

      Prior to the course started I did not even know what UX was. After going through structured and professional video lessons with interesting and (for me) challenging projects I can now say I have a good understanding about how the UX process works. I would highly recommend this course for anybody who is interested in user experience

      The UX Design Institute UX design course is an absolute must for every aspiring UX designer. Even if you are an experienced UX designer, you can still learn a tremendous amount about the process in a way that is considered the industry standard by the most respectful companies in the tech industry. The six-month course takes you form starting level to advanced level with theory and an interesting project. You'll learn from how to explain the value of UX to stakeholders, management and colleagues until how to execute deliverables for the development team. This and many other topics are discussed during this amazing course. I might sound excited, but that's because I am. Thank you to the UX Design Institute team for developing such a professional and comprehensive course.

      Attending this course was one of the best choices in my career. There is an almost countless amount of professional knowledge transfer via structured lectures (within online video modules and paths), project work as well as a very reliable community on Slack with your co-students and your mentors.

      Great course, very well structured. Ability to learn at own pace and time as long as assignments are submitted by deadlines. Very helpful team and tutors who were always offering help and support if needed. Slack channel with fellow learners was excellent too as were live webinars and workshops run by the UX Design Institute. Would definitely recommend this course for anyone considering getting into UX Design or involved in a startup and needing to understand enough from a 'Product' perspective. 

    Thanks!
