Design websites and apps people love with Bitmaker’s full-time Product & UX Design course. Whether you have some experience in another design discipline or are just a design enthusiast, this course will prepare you to jump into your first UX role.
What You Will Learn
This isn’t a typical, theory-heavy course. At Bitmaker, you’ll develop your design chops with hands-on assignments everyday, then bring it all together in a comprehensive portfolio project that demonstrates your new skills and design thinking.
- Visual Design: Visual design can separate a delightful experience from a merely adequate one. Use typography, color, contrast, and more to your advantage.
- Research and Planning: A “good idea” isn’t good enough. You need to truly understand your users and put their needs at the core of your decision-making to craft a solution you can execute.
- Interaction Design: Getting your users painlessly from “A” to “B” can be harder than it sounds. Design engaging user journeys through clear communication and delightful interactions.
- Polish, growth, and putting it all together: Take user feedback into your process and integrate your efforts into a cohesive product. Practice rational design thinking to solve problems and validate your solutions.

Bitmaker's UX course was exactly what I needed to take my skills as a graphic designer to the next level. The course covered everything from the basics of UX research to tools like Sketch to how to actually pitch design concepts. I left the class with a portfolio of prototypes and projects I worked on with students in the web development class that I'm proud to show friends and employers. If you're willing to put in the work, there's no reason you won't get amazing results.
The instructors were super friendly and probably my favourite part of the experience. If you are not good with self-directed study, this is probably not the course for you. It felt really rushed and overwhelming because we just zipped through everythin...
Do you provide financing?
We work with some great partners to provide financing options to our students, including a 6-month deferred payment option that allows students to make no payments until after completing the course. Qualifying applicants can: Cover your total course fees; choose a term of up to 60 months; or pay early with no penalties. Traditional term loans are also available.
What do I leave the course with? What will I have accomplished?
By the end of the course you’ll have completed several individual and group projects, culminating in one primary portfolio project. Your portfolio project is your main showpiece that you will complete during the final two weeks of the course, but all assignment work can also be expanded and leveraged when demonstrating your skills and learning curve to prospective employers. You’ll have become friends with your amazing classmates and cultivated relationships with incredible mentors. If you make the most of the career support and networking opportunities, you’ll also leave the course with a network that will help you get started. This course will help you develop foundational skills to enable you to continuously learn and add new skills. Every new job, even within the same technology set, requires developers to relearn many skills. You’ll be prepared with the core knowledge you need to make these leaps.
What post-program support does Bitmaker General Assembly offer?
