We will explore how design is not just a technical problem but also a cultural, social and political one. Through all this, we will prepare you for a range of industries and careers where you will be able to shape how we interface with the world, digitally and materially.

This King’s College London online programme is developed and delivered in collaboration with FourthRev, the online education company behind the Career Accelerator learning model – built to meet the demands of the digital economy.

Developed by a world-leading university in collaboration with top tech companies and employers to ensure outcomes align with industry demand.

      To solve a problem well, you need to understand it deeply - and to understand the problem, you need to understand your users. UX designers need to be able to translate that problem, and the solution, for the people they work with, especially development teams.Purple_quotePurple_quote
