We're on a mission to empower everyone to solve important problems through good design.

What is UX+ University?

UX+ University is a live, part-time education program that allows anyone to become User Experience professionals in just 16 weeks, with little or no upfront cost.

In the 16-week program, students learn and practice the tools, methodologies, and principles of UX Design. Students also get equipped with the knowledge and skills required to start a fulfilling UX Design career. Live classes are conducted online and come with hands-on projects, one-on-one mentorship, design reviews, team collaboration, guest lectures, and networking opportunities. Students finish the program with over 250 hours of learnings and come out job-ready, with career assistance through résumé reviews, job interview preparations, portfolio reviews, and salary negotiation strategies.
UX+ University believes that tuition shouldn’t be a barrier to a UX Designer’s education and career progression. Hence, we've set up an Income Share Agreement (ISA) that allows students to pay 16% of their income for two years only after being hired and just if they’re making at least $515 (₱25,000) per month. This ISA caps a student's repayment at a total of $5,150 (₱250,000.) Students can also opt for alternative payment methods that forego the ISA, including single upfront payments and 3-month installment tuition plans.
Prospective students go through our 2-week application process, including a short video interview, and a take-home design challenge. To screen applicants, UX+ University is particularly looking for students who are keen on improving their professional and technical skills and are willing to find a UX job immediately after graduation.
