People ignore design that ignores people.

User Experience Design
What is UX Design?
User Experience (UX) Design is the process of creating and designing digital products and services that are useful, usable, and desirable.
UX Design is concerned with how a person feels when using a product or service, like an app, website, or software application.
Following a Human-Centred Design (HCD) approach, UX Designers place the user at the centre of the design and development process and create an environment where customers consistently have positive, meaningful and relevant experiences.
Why study UX Design?
When you use a digital product, the quality of your experience is the result of “good” or “poor” UX Design. One in three consumers will walk away from a brand they love after just one bad experience. So UX Design has a clear impact on a company’s bottom line.
UX Design is a fast-growing discipline and people with these skills are in high-demand across all industries. Learning UX Design is a sure way to future-proof your career.
We teach UX and UI Design:
- As separate disciplines, for students who want to become specialists in one area
- In courses that cover both disciplines, for students who want stronger employment outcomes and a holistic skillset

“reinvigorated my love of learning again”
Academy Xi reinvigorated my love of learning again. The dynamic group environment of like-minded individuals paired up with some amazing instructors created a fantastic learning atmosphere. This and the opportunity to work with three real clients working through real-world problems and feedback is invaluable.
“equipped me with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to become a UX Designer”
I recommend the UX Transform course to anyone who wants to learn and start a career in UX. I had no prior experience but Academy Xi equipped me with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to become a UX Designer.
“intensive, challenging, but ultimately rewarding”
I chose to study UX at Academy Xi because I wanted to update my skillset to be relevant in a digital world. I found the courses and projects intensive, challenging, but ultimately rewarding. I made valuable connections with my classmates and instructors and got what I felt was a good insight into the UX industry.
“Academy Xi have exceeded my expectations”
Our instructor was awesome and incredibly insightful. The information and the way it's laid out for us is done super well. The most valuable for me was the staff and the community in general. I've taken a few online courses which were super disappointing but Academy Xi have exceeded my expectations... and some. I feel so confident about the skills I'll be leaving with.
