Why did you choose to study with Experience Haus?
I was looking to change careers and wanted to bring together my experience working closely with customers and my interest in design. Experience Haus was recommended to me as a place where I could learn whilst doing and actively apply the skills I was learning to the real world.
Did you know what you wanted to achieve before you embarked on the course?
User experience design was a whole new world to me as I came from a completely non-design, non-technical background. My aim was to get grounding in both the design and research elements of UX design so I could build on this and work on my own projects.
What did you enjoy most about the course?
I really enjoyed collaborating and working with the other people on the course, but most of all I enjoyed getting the opportunity to experience all aspects of a project through working with a real company. I was able to make a real contribution by solving real problems which gave me invaluable experience.
What is the single most important thing you learnt?
Critique is a good thing. All feedback on a design project helps towards creating the best possible product and solution for users. Any criticism and feedback you receive are positively helping you get to that end goal and make your project be the best it can be.
