What our students say:
"Perfect point-of-entry to UX. A simple, clear and straight-forward course."

"Great design tips and ideas. Tutor has wide & great experience in the field of UI & UX. A real expert."

"I just finished watching the course video last night, and I learned a lot. I have attended a lot of full-day design training courses which are too high-level and practical details about UX are not discussed. After watching only 30 mins of your video, I was able to apply it to my job straightaway."

"The School of UX sessions have really helped me to understand more about what UX is and isn't and also how it fits in with the whole life cycle of building products. The case studies and examples discussed in the classes really helped to get an understanding of how these principles can be applied to real world projects. I'd highly recommend these courses to anyone with an interest in learning more about UX!"

"Always great visuals to support your talk. Thank you."
