FAQs about the UX/UI Design course

Do I need prior design experience before enrolling in the course?

Any prior design experience is quite useful; however, it is not required for admission. On the other hand, solid social skills are a must, as any great UX/UI designer listens closely, empathizes and communicates clearly. These soft skills are essential — in order to find a product’s most effective tech solution, designers must work well with their colleagues and connect with their users.

Do I need to have a MacBook to enroll in the course?

The short answer is no. You can use alternative tools such as the Sketch app, Adobe XD or Figma, depending on your needs. We adapt to industry standards, so check with your location to find out which tool they prefer. Likewise, your lead instructor will focus on one software, while the others are optional, but we always do our best to cater to our students’ needs.

Does Ironhack pay for the licenses that I will need for the bootcamp? (i.e., Sketch, Adobe XD, Figma)

It is understandable that you’re eager to know about how this works – don’t worry, which tool you use is less important than the transferable skills you will be developing. During remote prep, your lead instructor will tell you what their go-to tool is and give you all the info you need to get set up. Currently, many of the licenses we use remain free or are available for a discounted student price. In any case, we would advise against purchasing any software licenses before starting the course.

How many hours per week will I be studying?

Right around 40 hours each week, beginning at 9 a.m. and finishing at 6 p.m. However, once class has ended, you’ll likely want to continue working with your classmates. That way you’re guaranteed to take your exercises and projects to the next level. Fridays also include an assessment exercise that covers the week’s topics. This will let you know how much you’ll need to work on the weekend!
