    Course Highlights

    Based in a design agency, not a school.

    Our studio is based in one of London’s leading design and branding agencies. Students come into class inspired by the highly dynamic creative environment, and are encouraged to talk to agency staff for their own professional development.

    Real client brief for your portfolio.

    Students will work independently on a client project provided by a local startup. They will be paired up on day one of the course and present back to their client at the end of the 12 weeks - summarising their journey, process and work throughout.

    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.

    Follow in the footsteps of Experience Haus alumni, who have gone on to join some of the most exciting, biggest and best companies across various industries and sectors.

    FAQ

    You have questions? We have the answers.

    A Digital Product Designer is the person who is partially responsible for the products, features, interface, visual language and launch.

    This course is focused on the process of building a digital product from scratch to launch. These include clarifying user groups, creating user journeys, choosing right features and execution methods and more.

    Yes it does. User Research, Analysis and User Journey are part of UX process and there are Figma workshops (industry-leading wireframing and prototyping software) that go through creating digital wireframes, adding fidelity to these and prototype to demonstrate / pitch.

    This can change depending on the stage of the course but we say on average there will be 8-10 hours of individual homework each week.

    Yes, at the end of the first session, you will be assigned to an actual client to work on a real project. At the end of the course you will present a formal presentation 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.

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

    No, our 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!

    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 and handoff designs with developers.

    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.

    The full-time Career Development Program provides everything that’s needed to get your first Product Design role. 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!).

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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 an Experience Haus course completion certificate at the end of the course. The course is recognised in regards to Experience Haus being an industry recognised brand.

    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.
