Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.

User Interface Design Courses
What is UI Design?
User Interface (UI) Design focuses on the look, feel, and interactivity of a digital product or service.
UI Designers consider the layout, grid, typography, and colour of each feature on screen. They craft all visual elements that a user will interact with, such as buttons, scrollbars, dropdown menus, icons, and more. They also focus on the interactivity of the interface—what a button or an icon does when a user clicks, taps, or swipes it.
Why study UI Design?
Apps and websites are integral to our lives – and to the success of an organisation. Intuitive, seamless and slick ones will convert and retain consumers… while poorly designed interfaces will drive users straight to the competition.
With such an impact on a company’s bottom line, UI Designers are in high-demand across all industries. Learning this fast-growing discipline is a sure way to future-proof your career.
We teach UI and UX 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
