Our philosophy at the UX Academy

Hey there, welcome to our brain and heart! If you’re ready to start your career as a Digital Product Designer, let’s get to know each other.

At UX Academy, we have a simple goal: for you to enter the professional market with real chances to land a job as a User Experience, User Interface or Service Designer. Although there’s high demand for UX experts, getting a job can be difficult for grads and job beginners with plenty of talent but little real-life experience. We’re here to change that.

We’ve developed a 24-week program to give you a thorough understanding of the Digital Product Design process and its methodologies, plus practical experience from real projects and client work. And you’ll be able to prove it with a certificate. But of course, it’s not all about tools and methods.

As a team of professional Product Designers and researchers who’ve seen quite a bit, we question fixed principles rather than follow them, but there are some things we believe:

Excellent results come from excellent preparation.

This is why we’ve partnered with the best – Elisava and Digital Society School – and why we provide a real client work environment to gain practical project experience.

Inspiring surroundings lead to inspiring ideas.

In our office you will find an open-minded, creative atmosphere, the latest technology, thought-provoking books you can borrow and a lot of space to experiment and learn.

Sometimes you really need all your energy to find the perfect solution.

To make sure you don't have to waste any worrying about money, finding a room, or Germany bureaucracy, we'll support you financially and with advice.

It’s important you love what you do.

To keep you pushing boundaries, to survive stressful times, and to produce outstanding designs. Whether you want to do this in UX, UI or Service Design or a related discipline – you’ll have the chance to find out.

Studying at UX Academy
Why it’s cool

As a User Experience designer, you’ll be needed – by agencies, companies, or anyone who wants their clients to feel good when using their products (and who wouldn’t?). So if you’re creative, have a passion for tech and design, and understand what makes people tick there’ll be enough for you to do. Still, career starts can be tough for design grads with little UX practice, and maybe you’re thinking about attending a UX seminar or getting a UX or UI certificate to prove your expertise. But why at UX Academy?

“We’re not just another Usability Academy. We want you to gain a profound understanding of the entire Product Design Process, from UX, UI and Service Design theory to real client practice”

First, we cover all aspects of Digital Product Design. At UX Academy we offer UX Design courses as well as UI and Service Design seminars, so you get the chance to find out what’s your thing. Second, you’ll enjoy a full academic infrastructure, with licensed tutors from leading design institutions, a collaborative environment, and access to latest tools and technologies.

You’ll get a solid theoretical foundation, gain practical experience from real client projects and receive a certificate at the end of the program. And third, we’re your partner. We’ll be there for all your questions, support you in finding an apartment, and we know Frankfurt isn’t for free. So, we’ll pay you for your work. We’ll also be there after you’ve left as you’ll remain a member of our UX Academy Alumni Network.
