Faqs

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

  • What is UI/UX Design?

    Well - to start UX and UI design are different disciplines, but together define the design of a product. First off, User Experience (UX) design is a user-centric method of designing products. It puts the user of a product first, and before any product design starts, UX queries users as to what their essential problems are and independent of platform (digital or physical) attempts to define these problems. UX applies to any user experience, and considers all the touchpoints a user might have with a product or service. On the flip side User Interface (UI) design is concerned with the look, feel, and interactivity of a product and the user. Together they define the specifications of a product that can be actualized by developers, marketed and launched.

  • What is the difference between UX and UI?

    People often get the two confused, but good websites and digital product don’t exist without both. UX (User Experience) design is where good design starts, with research into what the users of a product need and expect. Designers in this phase are not building the product right away, they’re defining what needs to be built, and know what problems that it’ll be solving for. When this product definition is squared away (usually with a good set of wireframes) the process is given to a UI (User Interface) designer who researches how the product should look and feel. Understanding how to motivate the user through colors, fonts, images and organization of content is the key role of the UI designer. Together both disciplines make for more usable and desirable digital products.

  • Does UI/UX Design Require Coding?

    No! While UI/UX designers create layouts and themes for websites, all of the code required to implement the designs is done by software engineers.

  • Is UI/UX Design Hard to Learn?

    Learning UI/UX design can be difficult, but most things worth doing are. As a UI/UX designer, you’ll be in charge of every single action people have on a website, which means you’ll have a lot to consider. Fortunately, once you get through a UI/UX bootcamp you should have no issues.

  • Do I Need UI/UX Experience Before Enrolling?

    No, our UI/UX design Bootcamp is friendly both to beginners and those who have some design experience. Every student will be given two weeks of pre-course work that will get them up to speed on the tools and process UI/UX designers use.

  • Do I Need to Be Artistic to Be UI/UX Designer?

    You do not need to be a competent drawer, painter, or any of the sort to be a UI/UX designer. The key thing you’ll need to do is be able to convey ideas so others understand them and your designs can be used easily by all.

  • Is a UI/UX Design Bootcamp Worth It?

    If you are serious about entering the UI/UX field, then absolutely. Only you can decide if you would like to get a traditional degree instead of going to a bootcamp, but if you do go the bootcamp route, there are plenty of positives. That includes working for a real client, building a portfolio, and getting hands-on experience—all things employees value in new hires—at a fraction of the cost of a degree.

  • How Long Does It Take To Learn UI/UX Design?

    Our UI/UX bootcamp consists of 24 weeks of course work, as well as two weeks of pre course work to get students ready for their first day. Students are expected to commit 20 hours per week to the bootcamp.

  • What Are the Technical Requirements for the UI/UX Bootcamp?

    The basics you will need to know before starting our UI/UX bootcamp are largely covered in pre-course work. Heaving competent computer skills and being familiar with software like FIgma, Miro, and Google Drive is enough.

  • How Much Does the UI/UX Design Bootcamp Cost?

    Depending on the payment structure you choose, our UI/UX design bootcamp costs anywhere from $11,995 to $13,495. Many students are eligible for scholarships that reduce the costs of the bootcamp.

  • How many people are going to be in my class? If I have a question will the instructor be able to answer?

    Class sizes will vary, but our UI/UX class is capped at 35 students. Our instructors only teach one or two classes at a time and have office hours during the week to answer your questions. Our TAs are available Monday - Friday in the evening hours to assist students after 5pm.

  • I can’t pay during the program; what are my options to defer payment?

    Schedule a call with Admissions to discuss the right financing options for you. We’re here to help, and make sure that you can achieve your career goals.

  • What happens if it’s too difficult for me and I have to drop out?

    If you find yourself struggling, reach out to both your instructor and the student support team. Together, we will do our absolute best to keep you on track and feeling confident about the material.

  • I don’t have any experience but I really want to get into UI/UX Design, how can I know for sure this is for me?

    Do some research first (as every good designer should!) and find out more information about UI/UX. You’ll see the growth in the job market for these positions and the need for skilled and passionate designers. Your admissions officer can help with a resource sheet, and you should attend the next AMA where we can interactively answer questions and showcase the UI/UX program. Ask your admissions officer for more details.
