UX design combines a unique mix of psychology, technology and design.

UX skills are highly in demand and are fundamental for anyone creating digital products.

Without them, the world can become a complicated, frustrating and alienating place. User experience skills such as user research, prototyping, usability and A/B testing, research, target customer personas, wireframing, heatmap analysis and design psychology can revolutionise how a company approaches app development/design processes.  Design teams can communicate better when people on the team have UX skills and optimised user experience engages clients and consumers while driving conversion.

Expand your design and creative skillset:

  • Learn to think like a UX designer and adopt the mindset that makes them so valuable
  • Gain the confidence that comes from a true, deep understanding of the domain
  • Have job-ready skills and a portfolio of work to prove it
  • Achieve a university-accredited qualification
  • Earn an industry-approved and globally recognised Diploma

'The programme was very well run. The UX experience itself was excellent and the flexibility and bite-sized chunks made it practical and easy to fit around a busy work and life schedule. The new certification has really helped shape my thinking and approach to new projects. Bringing in the new learnings to my day-to-day processes has noticeably improved both my research and design output.'

David Stanley, Head of Digital at Red Dog

'I think it is vital for any Designer to upskill in UX Design. With technology and mobile use on the rise, it’s not only important for something to look good but to flow with function. The course gave me the confidence to research and design with the User in mind. This has improved my design output and I am now able to effectively communicate through Wireframes and Prototypes to Developers.'

James Sandquest, Senior Graphic Designer at Dyjaho
