But it will be a plus if you have a keen eye for detail, some design foundations, and good problem-solving skills. This course is crafted to elevate you from beginner to professional in UI Design, regardless of your starting point. While it’s tailored for beginners, those with a visual or design background will also find valuable insights to enhance their skills.

You could also benefit from the course if you’re:

  • a UX designer or researcher elevating their skillset in crafting detailed prototypes.
  • a graphic designer wanting to shift gears and learn digital design.

  • You should have a computer or borrow one for the course, on which you can install the necessary programs.
  • You must ensure that you can dedicate at least 10-15 hours per week to the course, including the 1.5-hour lectures and 4-hour workshops on weekends, accompanied by homework assignments. Though every session is recorded and can be viewed later, we expect an attendance rate of at least 80%.
