About the Programme

Unlike a programme that only focuses on UX and conceptual thinking or one that only teaches design, this advanced diploma in user-centered design combines the best of both worlds.
Integrating your keen interest in human behaviour, obsession with solving problems in a unique way and your love of digital design, you’ll understand how to take these skills and elevate them to the next level. You’ll learn how to take a project from the conceptual stage into actual prototyping, and have the competency and know-how to integrate elements and design thinking in order for the development team to bring it to life. Developed in response to a desperate need in the market, this programme’s primary intention is to give students the ability to translate theory and implement it into practical projects for the real world.

Frequently asked questions

Why study for another year?

Yes, you have a diploma/degree. But has it made you real-world ready? This programme promises to equip students with the practical skills and human attributes that leapfrog their transition from academia to industry.

Why this versus Honours?

While Honours is perfect for those wanting to add another academic layer, consider this a finishing year that connects academia with the real world. The ideal bridge between theory and industry-relevant competencies; where you get exposed to who’s making it happen (potential employers) and how to do it yourself.
