A note on outcomes

We are currently undertaking a registration process with the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE). As this process involves validation of our outcome data, we are currently unable to share an overall outcome rate as a percentage.

Online education providers are subject to different regulatory regimes depending on where their head office is located, amongst other factors. Regulatory requirements vary both by country, and state-by-state within the USA. If you’d like to discuss this further, please contact us.

To give you a bit more context, we collect all of our outcome data through either: 1) self-reported surveys which graduates submit to us after accepting a job offer, or 2) independent research on platforms like LinkedIn for graduates who do not directly report outcomes to us. All of these surveys and research notes are cataloged, reviewed, and verified by an internal team member.

All outcome data is stored in a private, secure database where we run our data analysis and keep all records regularly updated and verified.

* We validate our hired count based on direct reporting from students and employment information on LinkedIn

** A job offer includes any full-time, part-time, internship (paid and unpaid), salaried, freelance, or founder role. 100% of these accepted offers have been design-related roles, which include but are not limited to UX/UI Designer, Product Designer, Visual Designer, UX Researcher, etc. We do not currently verify or make any claims regarding the duration of employment for any outcomes reported on this page.
