I found the course to be a tremendous way to build a foundation of UX Design knowledge and experience. I got to work on projects that became portfolio pieces, collaborate with developers, and I ended up getting hired for an opportunity that came directly through the General Assembly network.

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with General Assembly and their UX Design Course. From first interaction when i inquired for more info, to their policy of interviewing candidates, to payment assistance options, the course itself and support afterwards when i had questions, GA provides exceptional customer service and a great experience. I wouldn't hesitate to take another course with them.
I liked that our class was small with only 7 of us. Our teacher was very knowledgeable, friendly and created a fun, open online learning environment where i felt comfortable to ask questions and share my opinion. Urvashi always provided real like examples which truly helped understand the material and while the final project was alot of work, it allows you to apply the knowledge you've been learning and therefore understand.
How do I secure my spot in a course?
To ensure all GA students get the individual attention and resources they need to succeed, course sizes are limited. After submitting their applications, students connect with an admissions rep, who determines whether or not the course is a fit for their experience and goals. Additionally, applicants for our full-time Immersives complete admissions assessments to ensure they are prepared for the rigor of the curriculum. Once you’ve been accepted and have put down your initial down payment, your spot in the course is secure. Request a course package to learn more.
Do you offer payment plan options?
We understand these courses are a significant financial investment, so we provide several options to ease tuition payment. After submitting a down payment to save your spot in the course, you can choose the installment plan that’s best for you. Additionally, we work with financing partners to offer low-cost loan options for eligible students. Another fun fact: More than 45% of our part-time students receive tuition reimbursement for their GA education via employer sponsorship.
I’m an absolute beginner with zero experience or knowledge in the subject matter you teach (e.g., web development, digital marketing). Are your courses still for me?
Many of our long-form courses are geared toward beginners and no prior knowledge of a subject is required. Additionally, these courses often feature pre-work assignments to get you up to speed with essential concepts and tools. Inevitably, our courses attract students with a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise, so we make sure to have instructional associates, office hours, and additional help available as needed to provide personalized feedback and support.
Besides the hours spent in class each week, how much time do I need to dedicate to a course outside of the classroom?
It varies by course and by person, but, as a part-time student, be prepared to work hard and dedicate several hours outside of the classroom each week to review course material and complete homework assignments. Our full-time Immersive students also devote additional time to portfolio projects, networking events with hiring partners, career services support, and more. Either way, our courses are designed to be rigorous and intensive, but, most of all, incredibly rewarding!
What if I really want to take a GA course but just can’t afford it?
Good news: You’ve got options. More than 45% of our part-time students receive tuition assistance from their employers. Ask your local Admissions rep for information to share with your manager about our courses and the benefits they can provide your company. We also work with financing partners to offer low-cost loan options for eligible students.
What is your cancellation and refund policy?
GA’s campuses are governed by location-specific regulatory standards that we must comply with regarding refunds. For this reason, our refund policy varies based on your location while taking a GA course. Request a course package to learn more.
What will the Remote Immersive experience be like?
We know it can be hard to focus while learning online. Given the number of real-life and online distractions that may keep you from your work, we’ve designed course activities that keep you engaged and in constant conversations with your fellow classmates, instructors, and instructional associates. Our lessons are broken up into micro-lectures, which introduce content in short spurts. You’ll then work individually, in pairs, or in groups to apply what you’ve learned. We also encourage students to interact independently so they can get to know one another better and build a sense of community.
