User Experience Design

People ignore design that ignores people.

User Experience Design

What is UX Design?

User Experience (UX) Design is the process of creating and designing digital products and services that are useful, usable, and desirable. 

UX Design is concerned with how a person feels when using a product or service, like an app, website, or software application. 

Following a Human-Centred Design (HCD) approach, UX Designers place the user at the centre of the design and development process and create an environment where customers consistently have positive, meaningful and relevant experiences.

Why study UX Design?

When you use a digital product, the quality of your experience is the result of “good” or “poor” UX Design. One in three consumers will walk away from a brand they love after just one bad experience. So UX Design has a clear impact on a company’s bottom line. 

UX Design is a fast-growing discipline and people with these skills are in high-demand across all industries. Learning UX Design is a sure way to future-proof your career.

We teach UX and UI Design:

  • As separate disciplines, for students who want to become specialists in one area
  • In courses that cover both disciplines, for students who want stronger employment outcomes and a holistic skillset
