Program Overview

Why study User Experience Design?

The adoption and success of today’s digital products and services is heavily dependent on users’ perception of ease and quality interactions with that product or service. User Experience (UX) Design is a mindset and development process that deep-dives into users’ needs, identify pain points, and delivers iterative improvements to create delightful human-centred solutions.

So why study UX Design with us?

  • Hands-on with industry tools: Gain first-hand experience with best-practice tools including Figma that is used within the design industry.
  • Develop hybrid skills: This program is much more than UX. Lean into the future of UX Design and emerging practice through tackling additional topics such as hardware, ethical and responsible design, and DesignOps.
  • Graduate with an employer-ready portfolio: Demonstrate the knowledge gained through a real-world industry portfolio; a vital asset for any designer. Show potential employers how you think like a designer and demonstrate your abilities through a robust portfolio.
