The course will give you not only the depth, the substance and rigour of the academic qualification, but also the design ‘workshop’ vibe you can get from less formal courses. We fit ourselves in the middle of something that’s fun, collaborative, creative, workshop orientated, but very thorough as well.
The course is centered around the double diamond process which was created by the British Design Council. As you work through the course, you’ll be taking these different methods and tools and applying them to your project, with the help of your instructor.
You will learn all the essential things you need to know as a Service Designer like system thinking, relationship mapping, how to project plan, how to prioritise, and more. You will learn the tools but also the mindset of being a service designer.
Our alumni have gone on to join some of the most exciting, biggest and best names across various industries.
A comprehensive course covering multiple research tactics, workshop facilitation, design thinking, system mapping, journey mapping, stakeholder management, ideation, rapid prototyping, service blueprints, and more - all of which come together to play an important role in making successful service design decisions.
Students will enjoy a mix of lectures and collaborative workshop time, where they will get to practice learnings immediately and apply them to a live, real-life project with engaged stakeholders. A series of online tools will be used to apply the learnings and capture key insights.
The course is conducted online, via Zoom. Classes are live, and held twice a week. (from 6:30pm-8:30pm London time) either on Monday and Wednesday evenings, or Tuesday and Thursday evenings, depending on your chosen start date.
Over the duration of the course you will work on a live client project - this will be an end-to-end case study that is perfect for your career growth and development, along with your portfolio. You will be constantly applying the learnings from the course, and you will leave with a framework and best practices to apply on future projects.

Despite the demand for Service Designers is growing, this doesn’t mean it will be easy to immediately land a job. Like all design fields, it is extremely important to get hands on experience. This can be done either by joining a course, or even by developing your own design challenges. A good task to set yourself is tore-design a service that really frustrates you. With an increasingly competitive market, it’s important that you stand out from the crowd and maximise your chances of success. At Experience Haus you can book in a 1:1 call with one of our instructors to discuss our course in more detail, and how it might help you on your Service Design journey.
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!
This changes from time to time during the course but at least 2 hours minimum to up to 6 hours maximum during the week.

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!

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.
