“It’s always hard trusting whether or not an online course is going to be worth it. I had been eyeing several for a year, and something about the UX Writing Academy told me to go for it. For anyone who is going through the same indecision: The UX Writing Academy has given me exactly what I needed to transition from a veteran digital copywriter to a UX writer: context, application, mentorship, the assurance I needed that this is indeed the right move for me, and the confidence I needed to know that I can do it. What has been invaluable to me though is Yuval’s generosity and availability to talk through anything from course questions to portfolio-building advice.”
One of my biggest priorities when looking at UX writing courses was “pick the one that’s going to help me land a job” and I’m so glad that I chose the UX Writing Academy. Yuval and the mentors really do aim to set you up for success. By the end of the course, I’d gained a strong portfolio thanks to the course projects and mentorship, and I’d developed everything I needed to shape my UX writing career.
“Before doing the course, I hardly ever heard from companies after sending out my resumé. I started applying for jobs as soon as I received my certification and, so far, I’ve landed an interview every time. It’s a fantastic feeling.”
“This course reminded me that investing in yourself is always a good idea. Just days prior to enrolling, I was laid off from my full-time copywriting job due to COVID (cue the financial fears). Thankfully, I followed my gut, and the experience as one of Yuval’s students was the perfect springboard to get me thinking, acting, and speaking like a UX Writer. I landed my first contract role in just two months and got hired as a full-time contributor about 3 months after that. Now I work for an amazing company that values all things user experience. Discuss your personal and/or professional goal(s) with Yuval, put in the time and the work, and watch the magic unfold.”
“I thoroughly enjoy how the course is taught in a step-by-step and organized basis, so that people like me who are still developing our UX writing skills, don’t feel left behind. A sense of structure is helpful as learning about any new field may initially sound overwhelming.
My mentor, Yuval, has always been accessible via video chat or messaging in case I have questions or need guidance, and I feel very encouraged as the people behind this course really care about their students and their success. By providing helpful reading, a Facebook students group page, links, a UX writing book and several projects, I feel more armed and confident as I hopefully embark on a new career transition into UX writing.
Information, collaboration and a helpful hand can genuinely go a long way. If you’re interested in learning or transitioning into UX writing, this course is it!“
“There aren’t a lot of courses out there that focus specifically on UX writing, so I almost ended up doing a design boot camp that would have cost upwards of $15,000. I am so glad that I decided to do the UX Writing Academy instead. Not only was it designed for remote study (very necessary right now!), but it cost less than 20% of the price of design boot camps. I was already comfortable with writing in English, so what I really wanted was to understand UX fundamentals, testing, and research. The course materials covered all three (and more!).
Yuval’s individual attention was extremely valuable. He met with me 1:1 several times to help me learn to use software (airtable, figma), and to critique my portfolio. He was really invested in my success.
The final project involved work with a team on a real website. The case study I wrote for my portfolio helped me land a 4 month contract within a few weeks, and a full time job within 6 months.
I went from laid off from my job as an office administrator to working as a full time UX writer with a 20% salary increase!”
“With the help of the UX Writing Academy, I successfully made a career change during the pandemic—with a salary increase of over 40%.
The course provided me with an essential foundation in UX writing and microcopy that I’ve continued to build upon. UX Writing Academy clearly aims to reach the standards of well-known UX design boot camps, and I greatly appreciated this level of ambition. Few UX writing courses combine a remote online learning experience with 1:1 mentorship and hands-on projects with real clients. As someone who wanted to dive headfirst into the discipline and come out with work to add to my portfolio, this course fit my needs perfectly.
After completing the UX Writing Academy, I freelanced for several months before joining an edtech company as a full-time content strategist. Seeing my former career in higher ed merge with my new beginnings in UX has been a transformative experience. Changing careers was difficult, but the UX Writing Academy played an important part in pushing me forward.”
“I started the UX Writing Hub course with a clear idea that I wanted to become a UX writer. I had over a decade of professional writing experience, but I knew that in order to get a job in tech I needed to learn the specific types of tasks that UX writers get to perform, and also how they fit within a larger design team. I’m happy to say I got all of that and much more with the UX Writing Hub!
Throughout the course, you get to work on a variety of exercises and projects, both alone and in groups. The mentors give personal feedback which is invaluable. Best of all, towards the end of the course, you will get to work on a real life project which will get your portfolio off to a great start.
I’m currently getting ready for my final interview for a FT position with one of the giants of tech, and I feel confident and fully prepared to take on the challenge. Thank you, Yuval, and the whole UX Writing Hub team for helping me make this dream career switch!”
“People with skills and experience in UX writing are in demand.
If you’re looking how to break into this fascinating discipline, end your journey right here. You’ll graduate with a portfolio in hand, developed under the guidance of a mentor who is a veteran in this rapidly growing field. A five-star experience.”

“Enrolling in the UX Writing course was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I was able to truly refine my empathic approach and develop skills to better understand users. I came in as a UX Designer with 0 experience in content writing or microcopy and walked away as a confident UX Writer with a list of invaluable tools.
From the 1-on-1 mentoring with Yuval to the hands-on team projects, this course gave me everything I needed to further my career! Not only did I land interviews with major companies but passed them using the skills from this course and landed the perfect job for me!”

Connecting my dots from journalism to UX writing
“I’ve done a lot of online courses, many from notable schools. UX Writing Hub’s course is better than them all, on many fronts: quality content, practical projects, student interaction, and access to instructors. 👌👌👌”
“I joined the UX Writing Hub course because I wanted to make a career change, and getting certified gave me the confidence to pivot to content strategy and UX writing full time. My favorite part of the course was that I had the opportunity to network with new and experienced UX writers from all over the world — I still stay in touch with many of them. Thanks, Yuval and team, for a great experience.”
“The talented and passionate team at UX Writing Hub deliver an engaging, well rounded and rewarding masterclass in UX writing. The course exceeded my expectations. I signed up to kick start my transition from business analysis and change communications to content design and moved quickly from aspiring to dedicated UX Writer.
The course goes beyond the basics and provides practical exercises and on the job scenarios to guide students through a content-first approach to product and service design … the content is carefully curated to provide a range of best practice methodology, industry insights, latest practices and professional examples that reflect the dynamic and collaborative role of a UX writer. I gained access to a diverse professional community and a responsive, dedicated, positive and supportive mentor plus the opportunity to work with a not-for-profit organisation and develop a portfolio from scratch with two solid case studies.
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to refine and test their skills in UX writing. It’s been a stand out career investment that’s given me the confidence to succeed.”
“The time when I enrolled in the Academy was a transitional period for me when I decided to come back to the UX domain after almost 2 years … Now I’m fully back in UX design with advanced UX writing skills that make me a more valuable specialist.
… The course was well-balanced and well-thought-out so I was able not only to gain UX writing-specific techniques but to recap and revise UX frameworks at large.
I’d highlight the Copy Docs framework. I just can’t emphasize how much value the method has brought (and still does) to my workflow! In retrospect, it was a journey that definitely contributed to my current professional being, and where I picked up several frameworks I literally can’t live without now.”
“I enrolled in the course to get help to transition from Copywriting to UX Writing. I had plenty of experience in the digital field, but a lack of knowledge about the UX Writing processes. So this hands-on methodology worked great with me. Thanks to Yuval and Aaron’s mentorship I felt confident enough to face this change in my career and now I’m a UX Writer. I strongly recommend it!”
“I got so much more than I ever expected out of this course. I had stumbled my way into product and UX copy at work and wanted to get serious about growing in that direction. UX Writing Hub was recommended to me by another writer, and it’s the best decision I ever made!
The course is perfectly paced, and a masterclass in applied learning. The homework for each section was beautifully designed, and really served to reinforce the material in a way that makes it stick.
Off the back of this course I was able to completely redesign the way my company approaches copy, and move forward with confidence in the new skills I had learned.
It’s been over a year and I still feel supported by the UX Writing Hub team and community, they are an invaluable resource!”
“Partnership with UX Writing Hub has been transformational for Kindship and it’s mission to connect, support, and empower parents of children with disabilities. Together we doubled the engagement on our mobile app. We’ve made the strategic decision to make UX writing our competitive advantage.”
“This course is a game-changer both for experienced writers and those looking to break into the field of UX writing.
It’s insightful, well structured, and generous. I recommend it to anyone who will listen.”
“The resources Yuval creates – UX Writing Hub, Facebook group, video tutorials, and so much more – will help you conquer the UX writing world. Yuval is a truly inspirational leader and influential teacher. Like Morpheus from The Matrix, Yuval will show you the door to success – but you’re the one that has to walk through it.
Yuval’s heart is as big as his brain. With his support and guidance, I was able to launch a UX writing career. Yuval consistently produces quality content, like a weekly newsletter and podcast, that helps me stay up to date with the latest UX professional practices.
By continuously learning, creating, and sharing in Yuval’s UX Writing Hub community, I developed the skills that helped me become a UX writer at Atlassian. My UX writing career has only just begun, but I know the UX Writing Hub will always have everything I need to succeed.”
“This course brought me to the next level of UX writing. Not only did I grow my skills and put hands-on strategies into practice but also received great feedback from my mentors, experimented with new tools and (above all) got to know fellow UX writers with whom I’m still in touch.”
This course both opened up an entirely new and fascinating world to me. At the same time it also gave me the tools to get started with specific projects straight away. With Yuval’s help, we organised a one day workshop for our client Visit Norway (funded by the Norwegian government) to optimise and future-proof their content strategy. I’ve learned an awful lot during the course, and the contact with the other students was very inspiring and encouraging.

“Beyond the invaluable mentorship and practice that the course provides, this essential opener to UX writing helped me transition seamlessly and confidently into my new role as a UX writer for one of Asia’s biggest banks.”
“The UX Writing course kickstarted a new freelance career and community for me. Dedicated mentors highlighted my strengths as a former teacher, and our training continues to shift perspectives and relationships of the product design team I manage. Because of this course, I’ve come to regard language as an essential tool to label concepts, design experiences, share knowledge, deliver promises, and create the world I want to live in.”
“The UX writing course provided a comprehensive view of what’s involved to improve microcopy and UX writing. The assignments were challenging, and the Q&A sessions were very helpful. Taking this course allowed me to bring back knowledge to my team, which has helped us fully integrate technical writers in the UX writing process. This has given our team more visibility within the company and given us an opportunity to improve the quality of our products.”
“This course made me understand that UX Writing is much more than writing microcopy. The UX Writing research module blew my mind!”

“Yuval’s course is inspiring, fun and very hands-on. It’s a must for not only people new to UX writing but also for someone like myself with some experience in the field”
As a native English speaker and Digital Design Agency Project Manager in Sweden, I was looking for a new and exciting way to develop my creative output within the worlds of Copywriting and UX. UX Writing Hub & Yuval offered a flexible, practical and immersive way to learn and test new skills while simultaneously building a portfolio. I whole heartedly recommend the online Microcopy & UX Writing Course.”
“The UX Writing Hub’s Microcopy and UX Writing Course is the best career investment I’ve made in recent years.
Yuval and Aaron go above and beyond teaching. Not only are they leaders in the UX field, they’re also considerate and take the time to know their students individually, so the course feels tailored for specific needs. They carefully vet potential students to ensure that your peers can also support and help you when needed. 10 out of 10 would recommend!”
Yuval always finds an inspiring example of how UX copy is done right, no matter which question one might have. He knows what he is talking about and his excitement for good UX writing is truly contagious! What I like the most about the UX writing hub is that it’s highly professional while humor doesn’t come too short.
“This course provides the most actionable way to understand, approach, practice and apply UX wrtiting in work and life.
The hands on learning in each module about UX writing has changed the way I think, read, and write copy anywhere.
Each module breaks down secret about impactful UX writing and provides a framework to master it
UX writing is part of my life now!”
“I had just started my journey to becoming a UX writing when I took the UX Writing Hub’s training program. It was a comprehensive course covering the whole UX Writing process from start to finish, from an idea for a product to refining microcopy, and it introduced the general UX concepts required to be a successful writer (hint: UX Writing is not an isolated activity). The course was a great foundation to grow into the role and introduced me to a world-wide community of UX Writers.”
The course covers everything you need to kick off or advance your UX writing career, with excellent guidance, mentorship and resources. What’s really great is that it doesn’t just end when you complete the course – the team are really happy to stay in touch and continue to provide advice and guidance… it really feels that they care about the UX Writing community.
I took the UX writing course because I wanted to enhance my skills and move in to this new exciting territory.
What I really like about this course is that it was very very hands on. There was a great sense of community.
We had weekly group sessions in which we discussed about our projects. I’ve received amazing feedback about my UX writing work from my peers and mentors.
