Course overview

  • Four weeks learning, eight weeks in a placement

    Our program offers you two months of real industry experience and a month learning the full end-to-end Product Design process at an award-winning design agency.

  • Based in a design agency, not a school

    Our studio is based in one of London’s leading design and branding agencies. Students come into class inspired by the highly dynamic creative environment, and are able to talk to agency staff as they come and go.

  • Classes capped at 8 students

    Small class sizes allows the instructor to spend more time with each student discussing key concepts; getting feedback on work; asking outstanding questions; and benefiting from the wealth of experience they have to offer.

Amit Patel

Course Instructor

Experience Haus

Amit is a Toronto-born product designer/manager, now living in London. Has worked in product management and product design roles across many industries and in various sizes of companies, from startups (in sectors such as media, fin-tech and healthcare) to industry leading companies such as Scotiabank, Laing O’Rourke, and both Crossrail (Europe’s largest construction project) and Crossrail 2.

Build a professional portfolio of projects

Over the duration of the course you will work on a live client brief - this will be an end-to-end case study for your portfolio. We advise having at least 3 projects in your portfolio, so by using your learnings from the course you will have the framework to work on other projects with best practises.

This project consisted of research around the pain points dental practices face and designing improved dashboards to help with everyday reporting.

This project investigated how this startup app could help employers re-engage and re-connect with their employees, especially those who are front-line with customers.

Powered by AI, this software is delivered on waterproof tablets to allow participants to progress in their exercises at their own pace. The challenge was to design software for the elderly or those that aren't digitally savvy.

Frequently asked questions

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.
We pride ourselves on immersing students in the real-world, where challenges are faced and not avoided. We therefore only relocate when all other options are exhausted.
In-and-around London, with travel time and expenses a key consideration when assigning students to suitable employers.
Most positions won’t offer a monthly salary but will cover food and travel expenses. However, this can vary based on each employer’s individual policy. Please therefore ensure you are not reliant on this income in any way.

What our students say about us

"A few things that drew me to Experience Haus was that the briefs assigned are real-world projects, you get stakeholder experience and mentorship from tutors. Other than that, I felt the syllabus was current with skill demands of product designers"

"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."

"What drew me to Experience Haus was the price when comparing what the courses offered. I spoke to friends who did GA and one who did the course at EH. EH stood out as the better course."
