If you’re looking for someone who will only teach you how to make pretty things, this might not be the best course for you. But if you want to learn how to use qualitative and quantitative research to solve problems with beautiful design, then you’ve hit the jackpot with this class.

UX Design FAQs
What formats are Juno's courses offered in?
All Juno courses are offered Live Online from anywhere in the world, or In-Person at our campus in the heart of downtown Toronto, Canada. If you choose to learn Live Online, all you need is a computer and a reliable internet connection. If you choose to learn In-Person, you need to be able to attend on campus classes for the duration of your course.

Are there any computer requirements?
You'll need a laptop for every class! Although we don’t have a preference for what you use, some courses and workshops do require the use of a Mac laptop. Students who enroll in the UX Design must use a Mac laptop as you’ll be using Sketch, a program that isn’t currently available for PCs.
If you are unable to provide your own, we offer a limited number of Macbooks for rent for our In-Person classes, at a rate of $100/month plus HST with a refundable security deposit of $250. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require a laptop rental.
Do I need to be a designer to enroll in this course?
While existing knowledge of visual design will be helpful in this course, it’s not required. There will be a brief lesson on visual design best practices and how to use Sketch so that everyone has the working knowledge needed to complete exercises and projects.
What do I need to be prepared for this course?
Anyone enrolling in our UX Design course needs a Macbook with Sketch installed and licensed, unless they already know how to use other programs like Adobe XD, in which case they will be welcome to use them as an alternative to Sketch. However, only Sketch will be covered in class. If you would like to use Sketch and you don't have your own MacBook, we offer a limited number of Macbooks for rent for our In-Person classes, at a rate of $100/month plus HST with a refundable security deposit of $250. Please let us know as soon as possible if you require a laptop rental.
Will I learn Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator in this course?
This course does not cover how to use any Adobe programs. There will be a brief lesson on visual design best practices and how to use Sketch so that everyone has the working knowledge needed to complete exercises and projects.
What are the prerequisites for enrolling in UX Design at Juno?
There are no prerequisites or tech-challenges for UX Design at Juno, though the course will be most useful for those already working as designers or developers, or in UX adjacent roles.
