Course Overview

Deep dive in UI Design.

The main reason we have designed this course is for you to focus solely on the User Interface expertise of the process. This web UI design course is focused on best User Interface practices, both for existing and upcoming technologies and trends.

Start from scratch.

Carefully designed to improve your User Interface skills, we will start from scratch with User Interface and Visual Design concepts, followed by intense Figma practices, including launch-spec prototyping. No pre-design knowledge or experience is needed.

Advanced Figma Practices

We will also cover advanced features and tips, such as: tools, design systems, taxonomy, styles, auto-layout, constraints, variants, flows, advanced components, prototyping, and Figma community. The course relies on intense practices, which will be done both as a group and individually.

Our alumni have gone on to join some of the most exciting, biggest and best names across various industries.

Learn by Doing.

A comprehensive course covering visual design theory, user interface design theory, design systems, responsive design, components, taxonomy, styles, components, and more. All of these elements will come together to play an important role in creating successful user interface design outputs.

Students will enjoy a mix of lectures and collaborative workshop time, where they will get to practice learnings immediately and apply them to individual assignments and real-life projects, featuring stakeholder conversations and demos.

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

FAQ

You have questions? We have the answers.

User interface design is required where the human and device has an interaction / touchpoint. This can be on desktop, mobile, house appliance or anywhere else!

We have designed this course for people who would like to focus solely on User Interface design, meaning it would include UI and Visual Design theory modules, examination of best User Interface Practices and intense Figma Practices to execute them.

Considering the nature of User Interface Design and learning tool, the more practice you make will bring better results. We are aware of your existing workload so homework changes from time to time during the course but at least 2 hours minimum to up to 6 hours maximum during the week.

Yes, during the course you will be assigned to an actual client to work on a real project and at the end you will be presenting this work to your client.

We offer three payment options for all of our UI design course. 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!

We don’t need you or ask you to write any development code. Only on some parts of the course, we explain what the different code languages mean, how to check feasibility, and how it’s best to communicate 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.

Yes, you will most likely want to 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. During this course you will work on two projects to add to your portfolio: your group assignment (which will be a project with a real client) and your individual assignment, based on your interests and skillset.

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! In addition to Figma, we cover useful resources and how to use them to make the most out of UI with Figma!

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 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.
