What can UX Academy students expect over Christmas and New Years?

In an effort to help manage schedules and timing around the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, UX Academy will be effectively paused for two weeks, from Monday December 23, 2019 - Sunday January 5, 2020.

What this means:

    • Coursework: Students are not expected to work on coursework or apply to jobs
    • Mentor sessions: Mentor sessions are not expected to be scheduled
    • Group Crit Sessions: Group Crit sessions will not be scheduled. All students will be excused from attending sessions during this break.
    • Progress dates: Student progress dates will be adjusted by two weeks to allow for this break. Please disregard progress tracking during the holiday period as the adjustment, which includes changing the estimated completion date, will be made in the system after Sunday January 5, 2020.  

We wish to allow a break for students, mentors and Group Crit facilitators to enjoy the holidays. Support from the Designlab team may also be limited as our team spends time with their loved ones. Students are welcome to continue with their coursework independently on the Designlab site during these weeks.

If you have any questions, please reach out here.

We hope you enjoy the holiday!
