The program lasts 24 weeks, from January to June and from July to December.
The program takes place at the Cocomore office in Frankfurt am Main, just a short walk from the city center and the central station, in one of Frankfurt’s hippest and most international quarters.
Collaborating in a team, developing presentational skills, and staying in constant exchange with others is key to Digital Product Design. We’re also strong believers in networking, even more so when you’re starting your career. So your personal attendance will be necessary. If you’ll have to move to Frankfurt, we’ll support you in all essential matters.
No. The UX Academy program covers different areas of Product Design, such as User Experience Design, Visual or User Interface Design, and Service Design. In our masterclasses, workshops, and particularly during your included week away, you’ll also get hands-on experience from related fields like Frontend Development. We also feature an external module where you can learn some coding. If you’re interested in a specific field that does not appear in the program, let us know.
The UX Academy Program is for everyone who wants to start or has already started his or her career as a Digital Product Designer.
To apply to UX Academy, you need to send us your CV and an EU work permit. If you already have a portfolio, we’d love to see it, but it’s not required to apply.
At the end of the program, you will get a certificate and remain part of the UX Academy Alumni Network, which will open up a range of career opportunities for you. If we have any vacancies at Cocomore, we will offer our alumni a position of at least junior level.
You will work with a wide range of prototyping tools, from Adobe Creative Suite to Sketch, Figma, Invision, and Abstract. We switch our tools depending on the project.
Your tutors will be licensed professionals with a lot of experience in Product Design. Additionally, you will be coached by a personal 1-on-1 tutor who will take charge of your learning and whom you can ask all your questions during the program.
At UX Academy, we will help you to find accommodations in Frankfurt. Cocomore also has an apartment in Frankfurt where our students can stay if they like.
