Supercharging UX Design

For those looking to study User Experience (UX) Design with Academy Xi in Sydney, the deal just got a whole lot sweeter. We have recently partnered with UNSW to deliver our UX Accelerate 5-day intensive course, providing all the more reason to sign up today. 

As part of our commitment to ensure the best outcomes for our students, we partner with leaders in education. UNSW is one such leader – an internationally acclaimed teaching and research powerhouse, rubber stamping its credentials to further assure students and employers of Academy Xi’s UX training quality.

While a UX course with Academy Xi was already a strong statement on any digital professional’s CV, this one now carries with it the hefty weight of a world renowned institution:

  • Australia’s Global University 
  • Member of the prestigious Group of Eight
  • Top 50 ranked University worldwide (2019 QS World University Rankings)
  • #1 institution attended by Aussie startup founders
  • Strong industry links across all fields


Our UX Accelerate course counts as recognised prior learning. Upon course completion, you’ll receive 1 course (6 Units Of Credit) towards a UNSW’s Graduate Certificate or Master of Visualisation, Simulation, and Immersive Design. Existing UNSW students in one of these programs can choose to take the course instead of one of their electives. 

Hosted at UNSW Art & Design, a state of the art campus, this course offers a truly immersive and dynamic learning environment, with a host of study spaces and vibrant student life to feed off.


Why choose our “Accelerate” course format?

Open the toolbox:
This is a fast and intense course for people who want to expand their skillset in just 5 days. Coming out the other side with a full UX toolkit, you’ll learn about design research, information architecture, usability testing and wireframing. You’ll also understand how to frame a problem, define the opportunity and sell your prototype in a pitch.

Learn by doing:
How will we cover all of that I hear you ask? Well you won’t just be absorbing theory, you’ll bring a project of your own to the table and learn UX techniques while tackling the problem head on. There’s nothing like the fire of a real life project work to solidify your skills!
