Boma West

Web QA Tester

It’s great being able to work on a real life project with a team of people. It feels meaningful to know you’re providing value actively, also doing this in a team builds confidence since you know you’re not alone in your efforts and can bounce off each other. I never felt like I was lost and on my own.

Amy Pendrill

Doctor at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital

All the staff we met were really friendly and happy to help. It feels like you are joining a community where even after you’ve finished your course, they would still be willing to help you out. Jon, our teacher was excellent. Knowledgable and personable and able to bring in real world examples of what he was teaching on a daily basis.

Over the duration of the course you will be assigned a real client and will work on a live design challenge written and set by them. You will apply your learnings to the project as the course unfolds.

The culmination of this project will be presenting your work back to the client, explaining your process and journey.

By the time you graduate from this course you will have a full end-to-end case study to add to your portfolio. We advise adding a few more projects to the portfolio, so by using your learnings from this course you will have the framework to work on other projects with best practises. You can pick up further projects from the Experience Haus community.

FAQs

You have questions? we have the answers.

No, our UI UX courses are open to anyone. Whilst some of our students have studied or worked in design-related fields, many have very little experience (if any). We’ve had everyone from very senior industrial and digital designers with over 10 years’ experience to paramedics, lawyers, police and coffee shop baristas!

This changes depending on the stage of the course but we say on average there will be 2 – 6 hours of homework each week.

Yes, during the offline or online UI UX design course you will be assigned to an actual client to work on a real project and at the end you will present this work back to your client.

We offer three payment options for all of our courses. You can pay in full and save 10% off the regular price; you can spread the cost by paying in 3 instalments taken during the course; or you can apply for an interest-free loan through our finance partner, Knoma (please get in contact with enrol@experiencehaus.com for more details)

If you have taken any courses with us before, you will save 20% off the regular price.

No, contrary to popular belief you do not need to know how to code in order to become a Product Designer. Whilst it used to help with rapid prototyping, improvements in design software mean that this is no longer the case. So, whilst is important that you understand technology and are able to communicate with developers effectively, most product designers cannot (and do not) actually code.

We don’t make you to write code. Only on some parts of the course, we explain what different code languages mean / feasible and how is best to communicate with developers.

Yes, you will probably need to develop a portfolio. If you are doing our full-time Career Development Program then this will be completed as part of the curriculum, but if taking a part-time course then it will need to be done afterwards in your own time – with support from us as part of our lifelong mentoring service.

We primarily use Figma because it is one of the most intuitive, collaborative and inclusive prototyping and design programs available. Students can easily share their work and co-create on the same canvases through their web browser in real-time, without needing to download an application and suffer compatibility issues. Figma is also fast-becoming the industry standard and norm – although this changes quickly!

There isn’t one! To secure your space on a course all you have to do is book via our website or by contacting enrol@experiencehaus.com and telling us which programme you’d like to do. For those doing our larger courses, you’ll then get the chance to speak with one of our instructors and talk through your objectives, previous experience and how we might best support you during your time with us.

Part-time courses are a fantastic way of getting the ball rolling and getting up-to-speed quickly, conveniently and cost-effectively, but do not contain enough projects, work experience or portfolio development for you to start applying for roles immediately post-graduation. You will have to do this afterwards (with our support of course!). The full-time Career Development Program provides everything that’s needed to get your first Product Design role.

Courses can be taken with standard Windows PC or Apple hardware. The only programs that you will almost definitely need to use at some stage are Figma (the main design program we teach), Mural and Zoom. All of which can be run through your internet browser with no need to download their desktop applications unless you want to work offline. Many other programs are discussed throughout our courses, but none are essential.

Purchases are non-refundable, except at the discretion of Experience Haus Ltd. Typically, cancellations or refund requests received 14 days prior to the start of a course or workshop will be honoured. However, due to the complex nature of the service being provided this cannot be guaranteed, and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. This policy does not include deposits, all of which are non-refundable.

Provided you give us enough notice, we are happy for you to change courses once you’ve booked.

All students receive a digital Haus course completion certificate at the end of the course. The course is recognised in regards to Experience Haus being an industry recognised brand for best UX design courses in UK.

No – the briefs are selected to help you apply your learnings in the best way and create a great portfolio piece. We cannot change the brief that has been selected for you as we want this to be as real life as possible, where you don’t always choose what you work on and would need to deliver the project regardless of personal preference.
