Ideal for designers, developers, researchers, marketers and anyone involved in developing products. If you want to gain a better understanding of what people think, feel and do when using your products/service this course is for you. The course focuses on the first part of the UX design process and has been designed to complement our UX design Zero to Hero. Therefore, delegates who have already attended the Zero to Hero course will benefit greatly from this specialist course.


You should have a proper understanding of using either a Mac or PC. We will be using the Internet, text and photo editing software such as Word, Pages and Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator. Although this course does not require any previous design experience delegates who already have completed, the UX Design Zero to Hero course will have an advantage, as they are already familiar with the UX design process.
