UX Mastery reviewed dozens of online courses in UX, but they gave just one course 10/10: this one.

Build Your UX Portfolio As You Work Through 5 User Research and Design Projects.

The sample projects in the course include:

  • Find my pet: a product that allows people to track down wayward pets who have got lost.
  • Tomorrow’s shopping cart: a device that lets customers find any product in a supermarket.
  • Gift Giver, a gift recommendation system based on an extremely accurate product recommendation technology.
  • The Citizen Journalist: a system that will allow ordinary people to film events, take photographs, write a story and create a crowdsourced, online newspaper.
  • The Digital Postcard, an app that will allow users to create and send their own postcard, either by using a photograph they have taken on their phone, or by selecting a professionally taken image of a local beauty spot.


A career in User Experience is one of the most rewarding and challenging jobs in the technology sector. This online training course will give you the background you need to get started.

How long will it take?

With over 140 lectures and 9 hours of content, this is the most in-depth course on UX you'll find on Udemy. If you allocate 60-90 mins a day, and do all of the activities, it will take 2-3 weeks to complete. And if you want to spread the course out over a longer period, that’s fine too.

Is it for me?

This course is for you if you want to get hands-on practice in all the stages of user experience. Perhaps you’re starting out in the field of user experience. Or maybe you want to transition from your current job role to a career in UX. Whatever your background, you’ll apply your skills to a real world project that will become the first entry in your UX portfolio.

What if I get stuck?

As you move through each of the steps in the design process, you’ll be able to test your knowledge and compare your work with other students so you can see what “good” looks like. I review the course forum every day and I answer all student questions within 24 hours. So if you struggle with any of the material, just ask a question and I'll help you out.

Can’t I learn this stuff from a book?

It’s certainly possible to build your user experience expertise by reading books and blog posts, but that can be a slow process and it makes it hard to see the big picture. With this workshop, it’s you and me together working for a client, and I’m giving you the same tips, the same advice, and sharing the same techniques I’ve learned over the years on hundreds of design projects.

What if I don't like it?

Over 17,000 people have taken this online course and over 90% of students give it 4 or 5 stars, so I'm confident that you'll love this course. Just in case, I offer a 30-day, no questions asked, money-back guarantee. So sign up today, it's risk free!

Kick start your career in user experience with this 12-hour, online, video training course.
