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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

“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”
Product / UI Designer
"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"
