About Our Mentor Program
We believe it’s crucial to be an online school that gives you access to a professional UX designer who will act as your teacher and mentor.
You will benefit from a personal relationship just like you would get in the classroom. Our mentors are there to answer your questions via phone or email at every turn.
In addition, you will submit projects throughout the course which will be evaluated by your teacher. They are there to help you improve as you master the craft.
