UX | UI Accelerator

Take the course. Get the UX|UI job you want.

A 6 week user experience design program developed by DSA and the top 5 UX|UI agencies in Bangkok.

DSAs User Experience Design Accelerator Track is developed for anyone looking to upskill their creativity and core skills to enter the professional practice of user experience design–for early-career researchers, information architects, and user interface designers. No experience necesary.

Our Accelerator track is delivered as an Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on our dedicated learning platform MyDSA with instant mesaging to teaching staff.  You will also have access to the learning activities in Figma, the industry standard for collaborative web applications and interface design

This open access flexibility allows learners to develop their competencies and goals at their own pace in their own time. The focus of learning delivery is practice-based with challenge activities designed to encourage self-directed enquiry and criticality.

Why it works

Designers are a precious commodity. Whilst organisations appreciate raw talent and professionalism, early career designers should be able respond with tangibel evidence of experience. Traditional higher eduction in the design industry is becoming less persuasive to employers. The key is to appreciate the work produced and the time taken to produce it. Driven from a business perspective.

“By considering the issues of sustainability through societal lenses, the course enlightened me on how the designer should work collaboratively with people, technology, and organization.”  Tin Siridet, graduate.

Our UX|UI Accelerator is in response to the widening gap between higher education and industry. We believe that work-integrated learning should be embedded to nurture creative expertise and business leadership for fast-track SMEs to scale. And we have developed this course with advice from industry.

We acknowledge the entry level for user experience design in Asia-Pacific is low. And that’s a good thing. It offers entry into the industry for motivated creative’s who have not necessarily had the benefit of higher education.

In this respect the UX|UI Accelerator will be enormously beneficial to support early professionals understand the broader context of the professional practice of design in terms of how to fix problems for management, clients and customers.

Flexible, part-time. 6 weeks with 30 hours of notional study.
