What are the upcoming dates and deadlines for UX Academy?

Please note: all application and enrollment dates listed below are accurate. However, we review applications on a rolling basis, so it's possible for a cohort to fill up ahead of the application or enrollment deadline. If a cohort fills up ahead of time, we'll move to a waiting list and notify you of openings as they become available. Waitlisted students will have priority access to the next available cohort of UX Academy.

When will I hear an update about my application?

We review applications on a rolling basis and send decisions within 4 business days. You're typically best served by applying whenever you're ready — even if it's well before the start date — as long you've met all course prerequisites.

Interested in applying? Please review the course prerequisites before you apply.
