TEL AVIV, Israel, July 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The UX Writing Hub announced a partnership with Nigeria-based Uranus Academy. For every student who enrolls in their UX Writing Academy program, the UX Writing Hub will donate access to their Essentials course to a Nigerian design student at Uranus Academy.

Based in Lagos, the hub of African high tech, Uranus Academy delivers user experience design education. They offer live and on-demand recorded classes teaching design tools and techniques to over 3,000 students from around the world.

"Since inception, Uranus Academy has been responsible for equipping hundreds of students who desire to have a career in tech and many of them are occupying top spots in the tech space," said Bolarin Akintade, Product Manager of Uranus Academy. "We are super excited about our partnership with the UX Writing Hub such that for every student that enrolled for UX/UI course at Uranus Academy, the UX Writing Hub contributes access to their UX writing Essentials course, as we aim to bridge global tech education gap in Nigeria and Africa as a whole."
