FAQs

Why are you doing these UX projects?

At UXmentor.me we believe there is a gap between what you learn on a bootcamp or online UX course and what life is like once you start a real job.

Constraints such as budgets, timelines, stakeholders and resources mean you can’t always deliver a textbook UX process.

We want to train the next generation of UXers and Researchers to be able to cope with these constraints and deliver high quality user centred design to the world.

What knowledge do I need before I join?

In order to make the most out of our projects we recommend you have either:

  • Been on a UX bootcamp (e.g. General Assembly)
  • Taken an online UX course (e.g. Udemy, Lynda)

You should also have an understanding of Agile.

Can anyone join?

At the moment we are only accepting candidates from the United Kingdom. We hope to open this up to more countries soon.

How much does it cost?

At the moment we are in beta. Prices will be published soon.

How long are the projects?

Our projects last for 8 weeks, split into 4 sprints.

You should be able to dedicate 8 hours per week to the projects.
