What you’ll learn

Each of the three, six-week courses is purpose-built to give you the practical capability you need to stand out in the industry. In the fourth and final course – a six-week Employer Project – you’ll apply what you’ve learned to a real-world scenario.

Who you’ll learn from

Subject Experts

To ensure relevance and rigour, the programme content is developed in consultation with both university faculty and industry leaders.


Get both live and on-demand guidance from experienced professionals for content challenges and industry best practices.

Get proof of what you know and of what you can do

If you want to stand out, you need the right knowledge and the ability to translate it into action.


The university certificate you’ll earn once you graduate is a recognised mark of excellence that helps you stand out in a crowded market. To complement the certificate, you can use the Employer Project as a case study to prove the relevance of what you’ve learned and your ability to deliver commercial value to a business.

Why learn UX design?

Users have become much more conscious about the brands they choose to support, which has stimulated the need for more mindful, inclusive, and user-centric design. The difference between bad and good UX design can radically impact a customer’s interactions with a business, and ultimately affect that company’s success.

As a result, UX design has become one of the most dynamic and exciting careers today; it’s listed as one of the best jobs to have in the UK, with high job satisfaction and earning potential. It’s also one of the most accessible and fulfilling careers to transition to, with 56% of people coming from teaching, banking, and office work; and 44% coming from digital roles like marketing, development, and design. What’s more, it’s listed as the 6th highest paying entry-level job, making it a great opportunity for career starters.
