Design websites and apps people love with General Assembly’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’ll Learn
This isn’t a typical, theory-heavy course. At General Assembly, 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.

This course offers high-quality information and tools to start a new career, and important advice is to concentrate all your energies and time on the time frame of this course because if you are not fully into it you go to throw your money. This is not like college that you have a lot of time, all the information and work is very condensed and you need to work on the go every day.

In my early years of my career I've had exposure to product management in a variety of tech roles, but at the company I worked for there was no discipline or structure on this. It appeared as though there were pockets of expertise on it spread across the org. I had a voracious appetite to learn more and found this essential to my career progression. I'm grateful to have taken the Product Management course with General Assembly as this helped fill in the gaps I needed to make the full transition into a Product Manager role. The course empowered me with the tools and knowledge I needed to take on a problem I was passionate about solving and transforming into a viable business product. I now feel a lot more confident and ecstatic to apply what I've learned in my current role and in my side projects. A BIG SHOUTOUT also to my teacher Andrew Kumar for helping carve out this new path for me.
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.
