General FAQs

How many positions are available for the Internship?

We are hiring 10 female interns.

Can the schedule be adjusted if my college starts or if I have exams in the middle of my internship?

All interns must commence the internship on the stipulated date itself. Unfortunately, they cannot join in later. Hence, we prefer candidates who have completed their bachelor’s degree or have at least completed their final exams.

Do I need to commute to the office every day?

Even though the program is mostly remote due to COVID-19, this is not a remote-only job. All interns should be able to work from the office when required.

Do I need my own laptop?

Yes, you should have your own laptop. Since we will be working remotely, basic remote working gears like headphones/earphones would be required. 

What happens after the internship?

Deserving candidates will be hired as Associate UX Designer. 🙂

Will I receive a training certificate? 

No. But you will receive an experience letter after the completion of this internship.


Do we have to use specific design tools?

We use Figma the most here at Leapfrog.  But please feel free to use Photoshop, Sketch App, Adobe XD, or any design tool that you are comfortable with. 

What is competitive research and what kind of references should we use?

Competitive research involves the process of identifying competitors, their strengths, and their weaknesses. For the assignment, we recommend finding direct competitors for the research. But again, this is not compulsory and you can use indirect competitors for the research as well.

Should the competitors be from inside Nepal or will international competitors work too?

You can choose any competitor within or outside of Nepal for the research.

Can we use dummy text (lorem ipsum) in our designs?

We are looking for attention to detail and how passionate you are about UX Design. So, we encourage you to put actual content wherever needed instead of using lorem ipsum or other dummy texts. 

Does our design have to be interactive?

For the assignment, the requirement is to create a pleasing UI design. Prototyping it or making it interactive isn’t necessary, but you will be getting some brownie points for it. 😉

Do we have to use the same icons, and pictures that you’ve provided?

We have provided a folder containing all the necessary logos, pictures, and icons for your ease. You can either use them or find other free icon packs or picture libraries and use what you like.

How can I submit the assignment?

After you have completed the assignment, please submit the case study (PDF) in the same assignment mail that we sent you earlier. Remember to include all the links to resources and source files in the References section of the case study.
