Not only will we teach you all the skills you’ll need to embark on your career as a UX Designer, we’ll also provide you with a whole heap of career support, advice and guidance along the way too.

This support will come in a variety of forms including:

  • UX Designer Internship opportunity – we arrange for our graduates to interview for a range of 3 month, paid junior UX designer work placement opportunities. These roles with our partners will give you the chance to put all you’ve learnt into practice and help cement your knowledge and skills harnessed over the previous 12 weeks. Please note, we will attempt to arrange placement interviews for everyone on a cohort, but interviews or any subsequently offered placements cannot be guaranteed as they depend on availability at the time of graduation
  • CV workshops & interview advice
  • Career guidance and information on the possibilities and opportunities in the sector
  • Development of a portfolio of project work
  • Networking opportunities with both the local UX, design and tech communities & employers
  • Help and support in applying for and securing your first role upon graduation (and onwards for as long as you like)


The UX Design Course is a highly intensive programme which requires a big commitment from our students. To learn everything you’ll need to head straight into industry upon graduation, you’ll have to put a lot of time and effort in. We’ll do our bit and teach you everything you need to know and provide as much support as possible, but we’ll need you to do your bit too!

You can expect to be onsite from 9 – 5:30 every weekday involved in a variety of lectures, workshops and project work.

Outside of this you will probably find yourself spending a few hours working with your fellow students on further study activities – on your own at home practicing what you’ve learnt or working on projects – at evening events, and industry meetups.

It will be an intense ride, but an extremely extremely rewarding one!

We promise it won’t all be hard work though. You’ll be surrounded by a group of likeminded students all going through the same experience. There will be A LOT of collaborative project work and plenty of opportunities for fun along the way. Bristol is an incredible city with a strong and very welcoming tech and digital community.
