UX/UI Course Syllabus

How The Course Works

Student at Computer

Time Is Taken Out Of The Learning Equation

Our program is mastery-based, meaning that you move forward through curriculum once you have mastered each lesson, regardless of how long it takes. You will pass each module with an assessment with your instructor to progress through the program.

Mastery Based Learning

Mastery-based learning aptitude versus achievement

You graduate by landing a job, not just complete the program. Curriculum is designed by industry leaders and tailored to your life schedule and prior experience to get you job-ready as soon as possible.

Time Based Learning

Uniform instruction aptitude versus achievement

This is the slowest and most expensive way into the UX/UI field. The industry standards and needs will change multiple times within the four years it takes to earn a degree.

V School’s Responsive Model

  • Mastery Based Learning
  • Customizable Schedule & Pace
  • Industry Mentorship & Training
  • Real World Experience
  • End Result = Job In Industry

VS

Traditional Education Model

  • Time Based Learning
  • Fixed Schedule & Pace
  • Not A Priority
  • Classroom Experience
  • End Result = Certificate and Grade

Customize Your Course Schedule

It’s not always realistic to drop everything to go back to school and we understand that. We also don’t think that a busy schedule should delay you from the career you want.

We will work with you to customize your class schedule so you move at a pace that is beneficial and realistic to your current situation.

Learning That Fits With Your Schedule

Students will work directly with their student success mentor to set realistic goals based on their life schedule and the time that they have available to work on curriculum.
