Story of the founder

The School of UX speaker Sergei Golubev Sergei Golubev – UX & UI designer, entrepreneur and foodie from 🇪🇪 . Founder of The School of UX and The UX Conference in London 🇬🇧 . Previously UX design at Microsoft, Heathrow, British Gas.

I've always been interested in a mix of design and technology. I came to the UK from Estonia 15 years ago in search of career prospects. Three years (and thousands of £ in fees) later I have completed computer science degree (hooray!), but soon realised that (compared to academical path) I needed to step up my game in terms of what the actual industry and employers were expecting from new hires.

It was only thanks to numerous side projects, tons of books (here are a few good design book recommendations for you) and proactive freelancing that I've gained experience, which significantly helped me progress my career. I wondered if there are other ways...

Having then worked with Microsoft, Heathrow, British Gas, fintech companies and various startups, I've decided to share my knowledge with aspiring designers and started The School of UX in 2016 – bringing accessible and affordable education in User Experience design to everyone.

What I'm offering is short and reasonably priced UX & UI workshops with career advice by professional designers for those people who want to pursue a career in creative industry – without a need for them to take a loan and quit their job to take lengthy and costly degrees.

100+ courses & 5 conferences since 2016

All the courses are short & straightforward — so that you focus on what's important without being overloaded. There's also a one-to-one UX mentorship programme for you to grow further.
