Faqs

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

  • What is UX/UI 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.

  • Why should I learn both UX and UI?

    Every student can balance out what they prefer or have an aptitude for, but learning both disciplines makes for well rounded skills that employers demand. Coding Dojo aims to educate each student to be generalists, and as students get their first design positions they may specialize in certain areas according to their interests. Coding Dojo more importantly gives students the confidence in their abilities during the program, which in turn creates life-long learners that can tackle any task that employers throw at them.

  • Is it realistic to learn UX/UI Design so fast?

    Yes! Coding Dojo has been around since 2010. Our curriculum is based on 10 years of learning science, which is rolled into the UX/UI curriculum. Collectively, our team has taught over 6000 students, and this experience, along with the UX/UI programs curriculum designers experience, has created a program that will get you job ready for your first UX/UI role. As long as you put in the work, our instructors and student success team will be there to help.

  • Is this REALLY beginner-friendly?

    Yes! Many of our students enter the UX/UI program with no professional design experience when they enroll in the program. But from day one, we leverage any and all experience that students bring with them, and show them how it translates into valuable design-related skills. Students with service jobs are aware of customer needs and wants, and tend to be great at interviewing and surfacing problems. Students with any creative backgrounds, pastry chefs or chocolatiers for example, have the aesthetic skills to be great UI designers. And if you’ve ever used a digital product or had an opinion about a service or workflow, then you have the skills to help map a better experience for users you design for. We help you be successful no matter what level of experience you bring to the program.

  • Can I really get a job after only 24 weeks?

    Absolutely. It really just depends on how motivated you are! You get out what you put in. Those students that are ready to make a commitment to themselves and their design careers are those who are going to be most successful.

  • What if I don’t get a job?

    Hey we get it, a career change is scary, and a bootcamp is a big investment. But that's why we invest so much into our students! Here's a couple ways we support you...

    • Our career services start day 1 of your bootcamp, not after graduation, so you're as prepared as possible for the job search.
    • 89% of our grads get a job within the first 6 months, but even if you're still looking, our career services don't expire after 6 months - in fact they are available to you for life! So we'll be right there, no matter how long it takes.
    • We have an alumni network of over 6000 grads that you can reach out to as well.
  • How many people are going to be in my class? If I have a question will the instructor be able to answer?

    Class size varies, but we cap our online classes at 50 students. Our instructors always have office hours, and are only teaching 1 or 2 classes at a time to make sure they can answer your questions. We also have TAs available Mon-Friday in evening hours.

  • 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 UX/UI 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 UX/UI/. 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 UX/UI program. Ask your admissions officer for more details.

  • What is the average salary made upon graduation?

    According to national surveys the average starting salary of UX/UI designers is $89,528 nationwide*
