What previous students say about our courses:

Kathryn Samson

Freelance UX Designer

"I wanted to add to my design skill set with UX/UI design capabilities. I absolutely feel like i’ve now got all the tools I need to build my UX/UI design career. Because I’m continuing my work with the startup that I was paired with during the Product Design course, I’ll definitely continue to gain more experience and will also have a real case study for my portfolio."

Naomi Gorlov

UX Designer, BBC

"I really enjoyed collaborating and working with the other people on the course, but most of all I enjoyed getting the opportunity to experience all aspects of a project through working with a real company. I was able to make a real contribution by solving real problems which gave me invaluable experience."

Alvin Chan

UX Designer, Nitro

"Learning the relevant processes like experience mapping, user flows, and applying it to a live brief from a startup was really enjoyable. More often or not, a lot of these vocational courses ask you to apply what you learnt to a theoretical project that came from your own thinking, which frankly, isn’t enough."
