What is the structure for the Awwwards Masterclasses?
The Awwwards Masterclasses offer a comprehensive and immersive educational program on web design taught by industry experts. The program includes highly produced lecture video content and curriculum. The completion time is estimated to be three months with a 10-hour per week commitment. Each week, students will have access to high-quality lectures, visually rich and chaptered for more effective learning. Weekly homework assignments will allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the material, and collaborate with their peers and receive guidance from their mentor. The mentor will provide personalized video feedback and lead a weekly live Q&A session, where students can discuss progress and ask questions.

Will I be receiving a certificate of completion at the end of the course?
Yes, Certificates of completion are granted to students who successfully complete 80% of the class assignments (i.e., for a 10-week course, students must complete at least eight assignments to receive a certificate of completion). There are no exceptions! Students must follow all assignment description requirements.Yes, Certificates of completion are granted to students who successfully complete 80% of the class assignments (i.e., for a 10-week course, students must complete at least eight assignments to receive a certificate of completion). There are no exceptions! Students must follow all assignment description requirements.
NOTE: Instructors monitor assignment submissions and can approve or deny any submission based on if it met or did not follow the instructions of the assignment description.
What is the maximum number of students in each course?
Our courses are tailored to provide a close-knit learning environment. By limiting each course to 20 students or fewer, you will have more one-on-one time with your mentors and peers. This leads to more targeted guidance, interactive Q&A sessions, more in depth feedback, and the opportunity to have all of your questions answered. Additionally, the smaller class size promotes stronger connections with your classmates.
Is there lifetime access to the course?
Yes, when you enroll in a course you'll receive lifetime access. This means you can go back to review the course content and materials as often as you'd like. Our goal is to provide maximum value and make your learning experience worthwhile.
What financing options are available to me?
We have different financing options like our flexible installment plans. Some of our students get full or partial tuition reimbursement from their employers. To explore other finance options, please chat with our Admissions team to discover the best option for you and your budget.
What is the refund or transfer policy?
To obtain a full refund you must contact CGMA at least 5 days prior to the starting of the course. Regardless of the situation, a 5% processing fee is included in all transactions and will not be refundable. Remember that when you register for a class you hold a seat that cannot be purchased by somebody else once class starts – particularly in a class that is filled to capacity.
Nevertheless, here are some options we provide for AWWWARDS students who may have special circumstances:
Please be advised that the following Refund/transfer policy does not apply to group purchases (5 or more courses per term). For such cases please contact our Admissions Departments at email@example.com
Request for class cancellation during the first week of a class could qualify for a refund, minus a 15% cancellation fee. Request for class cancellation during the second week of a class prior its fifth day could qualify for a refund, minus a 20% cancellation fee. No refunds will be granted thereafter.
Request for a class transfer for the next term: transfers from one term to another may be allowed. However, an administrative fee equivalent to 10% of the course cost (before the discounted price, if applicable) will be implemented in order for the student to be confirmed in the next term enrollment. Transfers must be requested within the first week of the course. All transfer requests must be submitted within the same fiscal year the class(es) were purchased; otherwise, increased transfer fees will apply. Should you be unable to fulfill your course obligations due ONLY to illness, personal tragedy, jury duty, or military deployment, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, title of enrolled course, and the nature of your problem, and we will determine your refund eligibility on an individual basis. Note that some documentation supporting your situation will be requested.
Ultimately, the decision to refund any amount will be made entirely at CGMA’s discretion.
* Please note that any Payment Plan transactions that qualify for a refund are subject to our standard 5% processing fee.
