UX/UI Learning Resources

We recently ran a Tech Scholarship Programme with Aziz Foundation for 4 fully-funded scholarships to join the Love Circular Programme. We had over 100+ Applications and we were really impressed by the calibre of applications which made the decision to pick the final 4 super hard! We’ll be announcing the 4 winners very soon but at Muslamic Makers we were keen that even if you didn’t get the scholarship, we would help where we can to help you continue your journey.

The below are resources we collected and sent to everyone that applied and thought it would be useful to share with you all!
