01

Learn from industry experts

Our courses are all led by experienced design professionals working within the industry.

They are all equipped with industry experience of helping students to develop their knowledge, improve and prepare them for new opportunities.

02

Real projects, real clients.

Our ‘learn by doing’ practical approach gives our students the perfect opportunity to apply what they have learnt straight away in the real world.

Through individual and group tasks, you will work on a real project brief with a real client. This gives you a taster of the ‘real’ working environment and allows you to build working relationships.

03

Classes capped at 8 students

Our small class sizes allows the instructor to spend more time with each student discussing key concepts, providing feedback on work, answering specific questions, and sharing the wealth of experience they have to offer.

Benefit from valuable critique as you learn the design process and build foundational skills.

Learn by Doing.

A comprehensive course covering user research tactics, design thinking, stakeholder management, user experience (UX) and user interface design (UI) – all of which come together to play an important role in making successful design decisions.

Becoming a User Experience designer.

You will learn all the fundamental methods and tools in this UI and UX design course to become a user experience designer including how to conduct effective user research, building empathy and experience maps, understanding how to write good user stories, and more.

A series of online tools (such as Figma and Figjam) will be used to apply the learnings and capture key insights.

Classes are live, and held twice a week online via Zoom (from 6:30pm-8:30pm London time) either on Monday and Wednesday evenings, or Tuesday and Thursday evenings, depending on your chosen start date.

Gabrielle Corbett

UX Designer at Screenmedia

There were a number of things that led me to do the course at Experience Haus: the small class size, the live project to put on our portfolios and the cost. I also chatted to someone who had done the course before who had done a complete career pivot similar to myself and that really helped.

Maggzie Walczak

UX Strategist at PA Consulting

What convinced me to enrol was your UI – which was far better than competitors’! It was very clear what I would get out of the course and the amount of work I’d need t put in. I also really liked the Experience Haus approach – it’s very creative and innovative!

Marie Devaux

Project Manager at Pfizer

It was ideal, as it’s after working hours, I could still work 9-5 and pursue my own personal development. Aso twice a week felt like the right amount, not too much but enough to keep momentum and gave me time to work on the project and my portfolio in my own time.

Francesca Tiley

Product Designer at Inktrap

The best thing was working with other people and getting a real client brief. I looked forward to each session so much and everyone was really lovely. It always felt like a really nice environment, even though it was on Zoom!

Tom Sanderson

Creative Director at The Parish.com

I thought Burak was a brilliant coach and mentor. He made the course for me. He knows so much about UX, and is very generous sharing his experience and ideas.

Apply your learnings on real client projects.

Over the duration of the course you will be assigned a real client and will work on a live brief for them, applying your learnings to the project as the course unfolds.

The culmination of this project will be you presenting your work back to the client.

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.

FAQs

Have more questions? We have the answers.

No, our online UX/UI course is 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 come to take the course.

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 this course you will be assigned to an actual client to work on a real project set by them, and at the end you will present this work back to your client in a formal presentation.

We offer two payment options for all of our courses. You can pay in full and save 10% off the regular price or you can spread the cost by paying in 3 instalments taken during the course.

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 UX/UI 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.

No, we won’t be covering any coding or programming in this course. On some parts of the course, we explain what different code languages mean,  what is 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 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), Figjam 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 some of the best UX design courses around.

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.
