Former UXDI student

9/10

As someone who does not study design at school, it’s difficult to create a portfolio of well thought out and well executed work – time constraints normally mean that work is relegated to small design tasks or hackathon projects. GA’s UXDI course proved to be immensely valuable – not only did I learn how to develop a solid process as a designer, but I was also to work on different projects to help build up my portfolio. Without UXDI, I’m fairly confident I would not have had the expertise to be the designer I am currently.

9/10

I have heard too many times from my peers that courses like this are only for people in the working world who want to change their careers. While that is the case for many people, the courses are applicable in many more ways. For me, it was exploring an interest I have had for years, but never had the chance to cultivate. For you, it could be that you want a job in the dev world after you graduate, or you want to learn how to build that idea that’s been sitting in your head forever. I truly believe I learned more applicable skills for my future field in those 14 weeks than I did in the previous year of school, which is awesome.
I would definitely recommend this program for anyone looking to get into the tech field. It will help you talk the talk and walk the walk, something that no course in a normal college environment can do.

How can this program be improved?

Maybe slightly more engagement with the startup scene that exists in the area, but there were lots of meetups to attend.
