As a graphic designer I wanted to gain more of an insight into the world of UX/UI design and I was definitely given the knowledge and tools to be able to apply them into my day to day role.

Shauna

I took this course as a content designer wanting to learn more about UI and UX. Most other courses don't offer certificates but this one did. So it's great to have actual evidence to place on my CV, LinkedIn and online portfolio.

Jordan

This was a fantastic week of learning. Each tutor was incredibly helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to start a career in UX and or UI.

Izzy

I did the UX writing course and it was exactly what I needed. I'm looking forward to finishing the UX/UI cycle with the school of ux and upping this to a 5-star review.

What we'll cover

  • writing and editing skills/digital copywriting: tips and tricks for taking bad, boring corporate speak copy into something that works for users and helps with SEO. Lots of practical exercises on front-loading and decluttering text and writing headings, links and in plain English etc.
  • think like a journalist: a lot of content designers started as journalists, trained to look at information critically, filling in the holes and checking the logic.
  • working with stakeholders: advice on working with stakeholders on copy. It’s kind of train the trainer – showing how to make stakeholders confident that you know what you’re doing if you edit their bad copy!
