Can I apply to UX Academy if I’ve only taken Design 101?

Since the launch of our new UX Academy prerequisite course, UX Academy Foundations, the standard of work from students applying to UX Academy has continued to improve.

To ensure that all students are set up for success in UX Academy, and that we are supporting them with a well-rounded foundation in visual and UI design, Design 101 project work is no longer a valid prerequisite for applying to UX Academy. 

Individuals who take both Design 101 and UX Academy Foundations will receive a total credit of $650 towards their UX Academy tuition ($500 for Foundations + $150 for Design 101). If you have any questions about the above information, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
