Elsie Wong

Full-Stack UX Design Immersive

I joined the course with no prior knowledge of design. It can be intense, but the instructors and teacher assistants are very helpful along the way. They provided us with lots of constructive feedback to polish our work, which is very valuable for us to take into consideration for any future projects. The course is very comprehensive, it provides students with all the learning materials they needed to become an all-rounded UX/UI designer after 4 months. Plus, I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with other students from Data Science and Web Development cohorts through the Hackathon. This gives me a better understanding of how different teams collaborate and work together on the same project in a real workplace. It was fun and practical!

Full-Stack UX Design Immersive

As a UX/UI design student at Xccelerate, I am provided with instructors who are super helpful and knowledgeable. Their course curriculum also aligns with current professional practices. Throughout my time here, I am encouraged to interact with staff and students from other disciplines (Web Development and Data Science). Everyone collaborates, which is why it feels like a community as much as it as a bootcamp. The course can get a little intense sometimes, but that’s how they prepare you for the real world, so just be prepared to devote yourself to the duration of the bootcamp.

Frequently Asked Questions

Xccelerate was founded to address the main concerns that our students found lacking in traditional offline and even online learning environments. What you will find with us that does not come standard with a majority of other options is: - Our dedication to practical hands-on training environments that keep you accountable to your own success but also provide access to a modern curriculum with the aid of expert instructors. - For our immersive programs, we provide an in-house career support team as opposed to many other institutes where you are left to fend for yourself. Your job search progress will be closely followed up by our career consultants throughout the duration of the immersive program and even after graduation. - Our career team organizes various career events, e.g. networking evenings, guest sharing, workshops, etc. With such a commitment, we have achieved 91% successful hiring rate in the previous cohorts. Your success is our success! - Access to an always growing tech community. All Xccelerate students are invited to join our exclusive learning community, which is a platform of sharing and receiving news related to tech, such as the latest tech inventions, tech-talent roles openings, etc, allowing alumni and all stakeholders to discuss.

Our bootcamp programs are completely immersive. We teach from zero and expect you to have job-ready skills after the course. While it is not fully required to have pre-existing hard tech skills before the course, we highly recommend completing pre-course prep work that will be assigned before the course begins to best set you up to succeed.\n\nThe immersive courses are engineered to produce the best possible outcomes within 16 weeks, therefore students should fully understand the commitment and work ethic required to complete the program.

You can schedule a free course consultation with us by emailing admissions@xccelerate.co where we will address your current career situation as well as your desired outcomes to help point you in the right direction.

We do not offer trial classes at the moment as it turns out to be quite distracting for current students and instructors, but we recommend you to schedule a campus tour with our Admissions Manager at +852 68838583. You can observe the class and talk to our instructors if necessary to learn more about the course.

There are usually 15-20 students within each full time immersive course. In terms of in-house support offered by Xccelerate, our instructors are constantly available through dedicated channels that we have so that students can be walked through the course on a step by step level.
