    As a graphic designer I wanted to gain more of an insight into the world of UX/UI design and I was definitely given the knowledge and tools to be able to apply them into my day to day role.

    I took this course as a content designer wanting to learn more about UI and UX. Most other courses don't offer certificates but this one did. So it's great to have actual evidence to place on my CV, LinkedIn and online portfolio.

    Izzy

    I did the UX writing course and it was exactly what I needed. I'm looking forward to finishing the UX/UI cycle with the school of ux and upping this to a 5-star review.
