Have you ever seen a webpage and been blown away by the design? Or, better yet, have you ever seen a page that needs a little work? Maybe it’s not user-friendly or responsive. Maybe it’s got way too much going on and needs to be simplified. Maybe it needs a special touch. Maybe it needs you!
You might be just what that sub-par website needs. If you’ve been looking to get into web design, now’s your chance. There are so many great web design courses you can take -- both online and offline -- that’ll make you a web design expert in no time.
Over the past year and a half, we’ve amassed hundreds of Web Design bootcamp reviews and gathered thousands of data points to bring you our list of recommendations and rankings.
The Best Web Design Courses
Here we present a list of the top programs with the best reviews, as well as a short-list of other Web Design bootcamps with a strong reputation. Expect this list to be continuially updated.
This list of courses is by no means exhaustive, but we wanted to narrow it down to provide students with a starting point of well-reviewed, vetted Web Design courses. As more data comes in for different schools, we will update our list.
Top courses in the USA:
We really wanted to include the following schools in our top list but “top 5” sounds better than “top 6” or “top 7” or “top 8,” don’t you think? But we’ve still got a lot of love for these schools, and based on reviews, so do their students.

Students aren’t expected to have extensive experience before taking BrainStation’s User Experience Design course, but by the end, they should expect to know all there is to know about the principles of effective UX design. The program is three hours a week for 10 weeks, with self-guided learning outside of the classroom. Industry leaders teach the course and incorporate lots of hands-on projects.

Students can learn a user's behavior, emotions, and attitudes, and how to optimize their experience through good design in New York Code and Design Academy’s UX/UI Design 101 course. It’s a part-time, 8-week program that meets two nights a week. Students will leave the class knowing all about interface design, interaction design, information architecture, wireframes, user scenarios, personas, prototyping, usability testing and Adobe Illustrator.

Tradecraft’s UX course is a full time, 12-week program. During the course, students can expect to learn the ins and outs of customer development, user research, interaction design, user interface design, prototyping, and content and copy. One of the most unique aspects of Tradecraft is that the projects done during the program are for real-world companies -- this means students will be required to not just work on, but lead, a number of projects for Silicon Valley companies throughout the semester.
