No. This is a course for people new to UX. Some experience working on digital projects (in any capacity) will help. Otherwise, there are no special requirements.

No guarantees, but we have a pretty strong track record helping people make the switch into UX. At the very least, it will give you all-important confidence, knowledge and skills.

We've been working in UX since 1999. Our courses focus on the most powerful concepts and techniques we've learned since then. In other words, you'll learn a lot of the very best stuff.
