What will I learn?

Be at the forefront of digital design

UX designers shape the digital platforms, apps and products we use every day. User experience considers how people interact with technology, how it makes them feel, and how to help them complete a task, buy a product or have a conversation.

This specialised degree builds the technical and creative ability you’ll need to work in this dynamic, fast-growing field. You’ll develop a broad skillset in design, user testing and project management, and graduate with a professional, industry-ready portfolio.

This program will provide you with the technical, creative and project management skills you need to take advantage of growing opportunities in the field.
