Overview
Designlab offers part-time online courses covering in-demand UX/UI design skills. Each Designlab course consists of readings and videos, project work and 1-on-1 mentorship from expert designers who provide feedback on all of your work both written and via scheduled 1-on-1 Skype sessions. Designlab mentors are UI/UX designers with demonstrated expertise who’ve worked at agencies, well-known tech companies like Pinterest, Square, and Uber (to name a few), and as freelancers.

The 4-week courses run on a rolling basis with a scheduled start and end date and students are advised to budget about 8-10 hours per week for each course. Designlab courses are self-paced, so students can complete the readings/projects on their own schedule.

Designlab also offers UX Academy - an intensive online design bootcamp catered towards those interested in switching careers to a UX/UI/product design role. The program consists of 480 hours of coursework aimed at helping you build the hard and soft skills you need to break into UX, including building a thorough portfolio, developing your ability to communicate around design and product decisions, and practice with mock interviews. Support is provided through 1-on-1 mentorship, peer Group Critiques, and Career Services.
