What to look for in a Product Design course

With so many training providers offering such a wide range of Product Design courses, choosing the right one can be tough.

Here’s our guide on what to look for, who offers it, and at what price.

Product Strategy

The most effective and employable designers are those with the commercial acumen to contribute meaningfully to the wider business context they are working in. Helping to decide which customer segments to target, what the business model and value proposition should be, how the product will come to life in different channels, and what the measures of success will be.

Lifelong Mentoring

You can’t learn everything in a single course, regardless of how long or hard you study. Whether it’s help with a project, feedback on your portfolio, interview practise and preparation, or more general career advice – we’ll be here to support you long after you graduate.

Small Class Size (12 Max)

As a student, you want as much time with your instructor as possible: Discussing key concepts; getting feedback on work; asking outstanding questions; and benefiting from the wealth of experience they have to offer. However, whilst many training providers recruit good talent to run their courses, they often overfill their classes to make more money, leaving instructors with very little time for individual students.

100% Live Workshops

Design is a human-centred, ideas-driven process that requires real-time exploration, collaboration and feedback. This makes it perfectly suited to workshop-style learning, where the opportunity to ask questions, debate ideas, co-create with others, and get live input is plentiful.

Whilst the price and convenience of pre-recorded content may be tempting, it is often a false economy. With students often left alone for long periods of time, they get too distracted, frustrated and confused to achieve their goals, and have to invest in live training anyway.

Real Client Projects

As part of your learning and development you’ll inevitably create fictional project work for your favourite big-name brands. However, a critical part of becoming a design practitioner is managing real clients with very specific objectives, expectations and limited resources. By doing this as part of your course, you’ll not only improve your hard design skills but your soft skills too. Improving your ability to present, rationalise and defend your ideas when interviewing for roles and doing the job.

Work Experience

The hardest part of breaking into a career in Product Design is getting work experience. Whilst it’s true that the demand for new talent has increased over the last decade, so has the supply of new candidates entering the market – enabling employers to be more demanding than ever before. To make sure you stand out from the crowd and have the best chance of being hired, look for courses that feature real-world work experience. It could be the difference between success and failure.

Job Guarantee

When it comes to big investments in your career, you shouldn’t be taking on all of the risk on our own. Yes, you need to work hard and maximise your chances of landing that dream role, but some responsibility has to fall on the training provider too. That’s why it’s important to choose someone who is just as invested in your success as you are – and will return your course fee should it not deliver the results you need.

What our students say about us

Avatar

“As a freelancer I have completed several in-house and online courses and this one is by far the most valuable in terms of content, execution and community. The rock-solid experience of the instructors is evident, and the way they adapt the course for each student brilliant. Post-graduation support is also top-notch, with mentor check-ins and portfolio reviews available on-demand, and regular free events on offer”

"I spoke to the team at Haus after a bad experience with a competitor. I received no sales pitch or pressure, just genuine concern for what I wanted to achieve and advice on how to go about it. Honestly, it was the best decision I’ve ever made. I even received a permanent job offer before finishing the course!”

“The content and tutors were excellent throughout, always answering questions and keeping students on track. However, what makes this course really exceptional is the chace to work on a proper start-up, giving you real-world work experience and a unique project for your portfolio. In fact, I was lucky enough to be hired by my client at the end"

Frequently asked questions

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 (in fact it’s slower). 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.
There isn’t one! We want to help everyone who wants to study Product Design do so. 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 – we’ll even offer a refund should you not land a role within 12 months of graduating as part of our job guarantee*. 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!).
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!
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 occasional complimentary support from us as part of our lifelong mentoring service.
One of the great things about Product Design is that it is still in its relative infancy, and thus doesn’t require decades of study. However, whilst it is still possible to get a job having only completed a 2-3 month access course, the industry is becoming increasingly competitive as more enter the market. It’s therefore imperative you choose a training programme that will help you stand-out from the crowd and maximise your chances of success. For help selecting the right course, you can book in a 1:1 call with one of our instructors here
Digital Product Design is an umbrella term that incorporates user experience design (UX), user interface design (UI) and product strategy. Because of this, students who complete a Product Design course have a much wider set of roles available to them than those who just study UX / UI (and arguably more chance of being hired). This includes junior level positions as a Product Designer, UX / UI Designer, UX Researcher, Interaction Designer, Visual Designer, Digital Designer and more. We’ve even seen Product Designers become Product Managers and Product Owners because of their product strategy training, and Service Designers because of their ability to apply design thinking.
This depends on what you are looking for. Product Design is a fun, fast-moving discipline that will see you working with many fascinating people and technologies across a wide variety of dynamic and challenging environments. Furthermore, as digital becomes more pervasive and widespread, the need for more Product Designers is increasing – and as such the profession is more ‘future proof’ than other lines of work.
Your income as a Product Designer will depend on your individual circumstances and market conditions where you live. For example, it’s not unknown for heads of department at Silicon Valley startups to earn six or seven figures when factoring in their share options. However, for those that don’t live in such areas it’s probably best to be a bit more conservative with your salary expectations. In the UK, the salary for an entry level junior UX position typically starts at around £22,000-£25,000 GBP and gets progressively higher through to around £100,000 GBP and above for those with 10+ years’ experience. For freelancers, the rates tend to range between £250 - £750 GBP a day
No yet, but it's in development.
Whilst these types of courses can be great for light upskilling and getting to grips with the basics, they don’t really give you enough time to apply and practise the learnings – which reduces comprehension and applicability. Where possible, we suggest doing a slighter longer course format that doesn’t pack too much in or leave important stuff out. That said, we do occasionally run more intensive courses, please contact enrol@experiencehaus.com if interested.
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! Beyond this, students are able to use whichever software they feel comfortable with, with instructors providing guidance and support on Sketch, InVision, Principle, Axure, Adobe Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, XD etc), Balsamiq and so on, based on individual experience and comfort levels.
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 our courses start on the date specified on our website.
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.
Once enrolled with us, the support you get is lifelong. We understand you can’t learn everything in a single course, regardless of how long or hard you study. Whether it’s help with a project, feedback on your portfolio, interview practise and preparation, or more general career advice – we'll be here to support you long after you graduate.
The best way to contact your instructor is via Slack - all instructors regularly check their messages and will respond to you ASAP. You can do this via your class channel or in a private message.
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.
There is no deadline for enrolment but in order to avoid disappointment we advise enrolling no later than two weeks prior to the start date.
In certain cases we will offer certain courses at a discounted price.
