Our scholarship partners
That’s totally fine, as long as you’ve worked in some design field (Eg: Information design, Interaction Design, Product Design, Graphic design, Visual Design, New Media Design, Industrial design, and Digital Game Design).
If you’re completely new to the design field, we suggest taking introductory courses, getting an internship, and then applying soon as you have a few projects on your portfolio.
We do plan to announce an introductory course for folks who’re completely new. Please do make sure to subscribe to our mailing list for updates on the same.
Yes. Please take a look at the Fee Structure section on this same page.
We spend a lot of effort and money towards curating the curriculum, designing the learning experience, and executing our programs. We also compensate our speakers and mentors.
That said, all of this is to help you succeed! We strive to help you get far more value from the program than what you pay for. We do this by ensuring you have a fulfilling learning experience and find a better paying job through our placement services.
A typical week will involve you in:
Upto 24 folks will be admitted into the cohort. The emphasis is on enabling you to deliver your best through personalised guidance and feedback.
While we will give you a digitally verifiable certificate, we’d like to go further. We want to help you with gaining concrete experience and also developing industry connections.
Through assignments and projects, you’ll actually learn how to apply concepts and develop real-world experience; stuff you can feature on your portfolio.
Finally, by working with experienced professionals on ownpath, you’ll develop valuable connections that can unlock doors which would be much harder otherwise.
Different people come with different backgrounds, life constraints, and learning speeds or preferences. So, there’s nothing to worry too much about if you don’t find an offer on Demo Day.
Since it’s most likely to do with lacking experience for the role, we’ll recommend you take up another project, and we’ll continue to support you in the form of mentorship and opportunities during this time.
Please note that the second project is a required step in order to be eligible for a refund, in case one does not find a job within 6 months of Demo Day.
Yes! The idea of having industry partners on board and organising Demo Days is to help you showcase your work to top startups! We will also help you prepare your portfolio.
We’ll do everything we can. But, it’s still down to you to do well on your projects and clear the interview!
No. We do not offer job guarantees, we do however help you:
Prepare for interviews through coaching and portfolio reviews
Showcase your work through Demo Days, to hiring managers from our Hiring Partners and elsewhere.
Introduce you to companies who are hiring through our network.
Demo Day is an invite-only virtual event which will see participants from the cohort present their projects live.
The audience will include Heads of Design/Product and Hiring Managers from companies looking to hire Product Designers.
After the presentations, members in the audience will get in touch with you to discuss if their organisation might be a good fit for you.
Presentations will be recorded and based on your preferences, will be shared with select employers even after Demo Day, to ensure that you find the best possible offer.
Founder at &GSD, ownpath Instructor
I kicked off the year leading a Masterclass on Design Management with the stellar team @ownpath_xyz and now we're following up with a Q&A for Design Leaders. Join us!
Master's student, UW
There's so much to talk about in what I've been upto for the last two months.
🔥 things so far :
- learning from masterclasses and then applying it to our problem statement
- working with fellows who have become dear friends
- confidence in my ability to drive a design process
Product Designer, Obvious
I left my job in Feb and have been having literally the greatest time ever the last 2 months learning at @ownpath_xyz from some incredible mentors.
I'd say the COVID induced masters FOMO has also vanished (perhaps temporarily, we'll find), it's been that great.
