Our course is delivered online and consist of two, 2-hour session per week, on Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Your first lesson of the week will be theory-based, teaching you specific principles and concepts on design, allowing for live discussion and questions throughout the session. At the end of the session, you will be set a task, in which you will apply the taught theory. The second session of the week will be presentations, in which you will be taking part in a group critique of your designs, simulating the practice used in design roles. Your mentor will advise from a technical and business perspective, as your peers provide user insights and feedback.
