Student Testimonials

”I was looking for courses or boot camps here in the Philippines and came upon an ad for the Professional Diploma in UX Design on social media! I've done my own research and weighed the pros and cons of self-paced learning, then I learned about Enderun Extension and UXDI's credibility, so I decided to enroll in the UX Design course. I loved how I was able to seek guidance from my mentor, and I got to work with the other students in the cohort. Even if we had a choice to go self-paced or follow the course outline, I didn't feel like I was alone, and it made me become motivated every time to get feedback and support form my mentor and peers. To add, I appreciate the webinars where we got actual UX professionals to share what it's like in the industry and what to expect. Having real life examples pushed me further to apply to that internship after the course.”

October2021

The UX Design process applies to software design and any initiative that requires design thinking, such as branding and marketing. In my case, it’s beneficial for my role. Aside from designing websites, I also provide stakeholders with creative strategies for their brands and marketing agendas and lead creative teams to execute this direction.  The UX Design certification provided a deeper level of understanding of the importance of research, analyzing data gathered, and making informed decisions based on the analysis.
