“The UX Writing Academy came along at just the right time for me. As a career tech writer, I’d been looking to transition to product design for some time. UX writing and content design gives me that pathway! The coursework in the Academy is detailed and highly relevant. Every module gives you exposure to actual, day-to-day UX writer activities. The best part of the Academy, though, is the live project with a real company. Working with a startup solving their needs is such a level up from bootcamp exercises! I found the live project invaluable; I now have work to highlight in my portfolio and demonstrable experience I can discuss with hiring managers. I had a great time getting to know my project team members better, and we will no doubt stay in touch and support each other as our UX writing careers progress. So worth it!”
“The UXWA didn’t just train me in UX writing, it also helped me gain the confidence I needed to apply for jobs in UX with major companies. I love my job, but I would never have applied if it wasn’t for the Academy!!
“When I made the risky decision to shift my career from law to tech, I knew that I needed to find a course that did more than just teach the basics. I needed to learn the type of practical skills and design thinking that would get me noticed by an employer—and that’s exactly what I got.
Thanks to UXWA’s excellent teaching and support, I developed a strong portfolio and landed my first UX writing job at a tech unicorn within a month of finishing the course.
I highly recommend UXWA to anyone looking to break into UX writing!
“The UX Writing Academy helped me completely change careers and become a full-time UX writer. The information was incredibly thorough and I learned so much about the entire UX writing process. The community is supportive, my mentor was so helpful, and the real-world experience you get with the capstone project and real-industry project is unmatched. Those experiences were so valuable. I can’t thank this program enough!”
“The UXWA course literally changed my life. When I made the decision to pivot my web design career into the UX writing field, I wanted to go all in and do it right. This course was the answer to that and more. I not only learned and practiced the skills necessary to succeed but was taught the why and how behind all of it which established a solid and purposeful foundation. The course material combined with the support I got from my instructors, my mentor, and my classmates all lead to me landing my first UX writing job 6 months after the first class session. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”
“The UX Writing Academy really does set you up for success. You’re given ample opportunity to develop your craft, and right from the start you learn solid processes that you can apply to future course projects and beyond. I was stoked to have so many pieces of work to choose from when it came to building my portfolio!
Yuval, Aaron and the mentors are wonderfully supportive and generous with their time. Thanks to their encouragement and enthusiasm for all things UX writing, I’ve never been more sure of where I want to take my career. “
“I’ve been a teacher for 10 years. Last year I realized that it just isn’t for me anymore. Then, I stumbled onto UX writing about six months ago and thought, “Well this is cool, let’s give this a try.” I easily found UX Writing Hub and all their courses and signed up for the free one. That went well and was super fun so I tried the Essentials course. That was even better and helped me understand that I really do want to be a UX writer. So, I did it, I signed up for the academy… best decision I’ve ever made in my professional life. I learned so much in the boot camp and gained confidence in my skills from my assigned mentor’s feedback and advice. He helped me prepare for a job interview and build my portfolio…and I got my first UX writing job while still enrolled in the course! Without any experience in the industry! I’m officially a UX writer for PwC, all thanks to UX Writing Hub and their amazing team of educators and staff.“
“I’m proud to share that I’m officially a certified UX Writer / Content Designer. The UX Writing Hub has been a wonderful experience, and because of it, I feel prepared to enter the world of UX Writing. I can’t wait to begin my new career! “
“I recieved my UX Writing certificate from the UX Writing Hub. The knowledge and application of UX principles was invaluable, even their optional assignments I found to be incredibly important and worthwhile! I learned how to accomplish every step and deliverable from the early stages of research to presenting detailed user journeys and their accompanying screen designs, I owe my future success in this career to them 🤘“
“I’m fresh out of boot camp and so glad I’ve taken this step with the UX Writing Academy. The course was well-paced, my assigned mentor was both supportive and willing to push me when I needed it, and the weekly online meetings with Juval and other UX professionals giving industry insights has been so encouraging as I make this pivot in my career. For our final project, UXWA paired us in groups with real industry partners, so we could help them with UX writing issues, while we gained experience and connections. I’m looking forward to the ongoing support the academy offers students in their job search, and I’ll be on the lookout for future opportunities with and through UX Writing Hub!“
“It was an exciting journey for me when I first heard about UX Writing and thought about how it might complement my previous professional experiences. If you rely on an online course and invest a lot of money, you can never really be sure if it’s going to be good enough. However, these doubts were quickly dispelled. UX Writing Hub makes every effort to make sure you succeed. The assignments give you exactly the practice you need and I never felt like just “one of the many.“
“I have completed the UX Writing Academy in the flex version. Yay! This journey to enhance my writing skills for products was both enjoyable and challenging at the same time. I can’t wait to build upon this amazing foundation and apply all the new things I learned on this journey! “
“In my previous position, I taught myself basic UX research and writing principles and applied them to the company’s SaaS products. Yet, even though I learned so much from the vast amount of UX writing content available, I wanted to finesse my knowledge of fundamental UX principles in a structured way. I also wanted to speak the correct “UX language” companies are looking for when hiring. For this reason, I went with UX Writing Hub. So far, the course has been fantastic and has lived up to its excellent reviews. The course projects are quite fun/challenging, and great additions to any portfolio – plus, the feedback/guidance from my mentor has been beyond invaluable :raised_hands: I have truly enjoyed meeting and working with new colleagues who come from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels. Lastly, the talented instructors, mentors, and colleagues I’ve met in the course are incredibly supportive and inspiring, making learning all the more enjoyable. So, while a course isn’t necessary, it’s nice to have everything packaged up neatly in a bundle and provides an opportunity to meet others. “
“I would like to thank Yuval, Aaron and the entire Academy team. It was by far the most useful course I ever took, and their efforts and support are invaluable.
Keep on doing what you’re doing, you’re making a real impact on people’s careers and lives.“
“The UX Writing Academy fulfilled all my expectations and more! It’s a great course that mixes practical and theoretical knowledge. From writing assignments and creating your own project, to taking on a role of a UX writer in a real company, it’s a very fun and educating experience. After finishing it, I feel confident in my UX writing abilities.
The whole team goes above and beyond to guide and help you along the way, and in the end, you’ll have a portfolio to show to potential employers.
All in all, I would strongly recommend it if you want to learn UX writing!”
“When I was debating whether to join the UX Writing Hub Certificate program, just like any UX “bootcamp,” I was wondering, “Is it worth it?”
Before the program had ended, I was hired into a full-time Content Strategist position with an innovative, enterprise-level, fintech product team.
Simply put, this program can get you there. It’s certainly not an easy road, but after 4 years of struggle and searching, it happened!
The 12-month payment program made this possible for me in my final transition from my “old life.” I cannot thank Yuval, Aaron and the mentor team enough for changing my life.
I’m now being paid an hourly rate that is quite literally, life-changing. I’m paying back my debts and FINALLY feel like I’m doing the work I’ve always dreamt to find. Each day, I feel fulfillment to be harnessing my skills to make an impact…and being paid what I feel I am worth.
Take the plunge. Make new friends. Change your life. Boom.
“The overall experience of the UX Writing Academy was exceptional. The content was thorough and the assignments were both fun and challenging. But the support from Yuval and Aaron took the program to the next level. Yuval is a champion for each and every student. His one-on-one sessions were invaluable to my job search—and confidence as a UX Writer. And Aaron was always available to answer any and all student questions. (I just filled my daily alliteration quota!) I am beyond grateful to the UX Writing Hub for providing an opportunity to learn, apply my skills, and ultimately take my career to the next level. The cherry on top? I met some wonderful classmates who quickly became new friends..”
“The UX Writing Academy was exactly what I needed to learn the fundamentals of UX writing and put my learning into practice while receiving invaluable feedback from an experienced UX writing mentor. I went from having no samples of UX writing work to some great portfolio pieces in just a few months.
Best of all, I landed my first UX writing position before I even finished the course!”
“The UX Writing Boot Camp really affected the way I think. I learned some fundamental principles of UX Writing and UX Design from other institutes, but this program is the only one that actually taught me how to think like a content designer.All the prompts and practices in the program are well designed with specific training purposes and they encourage the perfect amount of creativity. Every thought-provoking deliverable triggers a decision-making process. I gained much more confidence in presenting my portfolio after finishing this course..”
“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.
The course was an incredible experience for me, it gave me confidence to embrace UX projects at my job (now I’m referred to as “the UX specialist”, lol) and made me hope for nice things for the future. I really believe I’m capable of taking the next step and getting a full time UX Writer job – and that’s because the course is soooooo good.
”I’m so grateful for the UX Writing Hub. This certification attracted me because of the reasonable price, direct mentorship, writing-specific course content, and solid reputation. It lived up to all my expectations and helped me fall in love with this industry. 6 months after completing the certification, I landed an awesome full-time job at SimplePractice as a content designer. Yuval and Aaron – thank you for your guidance and support not only during the course, but after through my job search. A must for aspiring product writers!”
“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.”
“The UX Writing Academy was just what I needed to make the transition from content writer to content designer. The easy-to-read materials, hands-on exercises, and supportive mentorship gave me the real-world knowledge to land an awesome new job before even completing the program. I am so glad I found this program and made the investment—it was 100% worth it.”
“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.”
“It was fate that I found the UX Writing Academy. UX writers are in high demand everywhere, and I was looking for a specialty that would leverage my background in writing, marketing, and digital content strategy. The program was exactly what I needed. We delved into every aspect of UX writing. I learned theory, practical application and worked on industry projects. The best part is that I never felt alone because we learned and practiced alongside our peers and mentors. As a result, I gained the skills, practical experience, and confidence needed to seamlessly and successfully pivot my career.”
“I come from a copywriting background. I was looking for training in UX which is a lucrative profession among those which require a great writing flair. From UX zero to UX hero, this course piqued my interest in the all-new field of UX writing no other. The constant guidance from mentors, the easy to understand and super simple course material is just brilliant for rookies and pros alike. To realize that the author was once an engineer and then read the super engaging content of the course feels so inspirational. I seriously recommend anyone starting out in this domain to mandatorily pursue this course to kickstart their UX writing journey. A new journey calls for handholding at every stage and the UX Writing Hub does just that.”
“Intensive but mentored learning. A supportive environment with room for both error and growth. In short, the real deal. These are all ways I would describe my experience now having completed the UX Writing Academy Training Program. I went from concerned over a career change to excited with the knowledge and skills I’ve been given by both programme peers and staff. The required reading is fun, fat-free, and broken up well. After reading, you’re asked to get your hands dirty and actually >do< what you’ve just learned. Upon submission, you receive personal feedback from your mentor as well as peers (if you choose) on where you excelled and where you need to up your game for the real world. Knowing is doing would be my walkaway mantra of the UXWA – and I am so glad to have made the decision to take part.”
“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!”
“A must for writers who are changing careers or upping their skills! Not only did I get world-class mentorship, learned industry methodologies, but this course took my skills to the next level: helping me land a job in the tech field!!”

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. 👌👌👌”
“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.
