The UX Design short course at the University of the Arts London (UAL) is a professionally focused, design-led course that will equip you with the specialist skills to conceive, prototype and produce a human-centred experience in an interactive digital context.


The UX Design course intends to equip participants with some of the standard methods of UX design but also an awareness of the wider social, ethical and political contexts in which UX work is done. This course is designed to be technology and medium agnostic, we use any materials and technologies we think appropriate.

There's an increasingly high demand for designers who are able to combine their creative skills with profound insight into human behaviours and contexts. This course prepares you for the rapidly expanding field of UX.

You'll learn the advanced studio skills of user experience design, the methods and practices of user research and the critical-theoretical background to the field.


By the end of this User Experience (UX) Design short course at the University of the Arts London (UAL) you should be able to:

  • Gather, analyse and structure qualitative research data about how people behave with technologies and spaces to inform the development of a UX design project.
  • Conceive, plan and prototype in low fidelity resolution your chosen design solution taking account of the social and political dimensions of your idea.
  • Show how your design would play out in a narrative scenario involving people and situations from your chosen concept area.
