Angus Carbarns

What’s your career background?

From working in content marketing, I moved into a broader role as a digital strategist. I was thrown in at the deep end and given a lot of UX work like user research and usability testing. I loved it but I wasn’t totally confident in it.

What interested you about UX?

As part of my marketing role I was helping clients to optimise their websites and I became fascinated with UX. I wanted to learn more about how people build better products: what works and what doesn’t.

Why did you choose the Professional Diploma in UX?

The university credit rating definitely stood out. I had done courses with other online providers but none of them came backed by a university. As well as that, I was looking for something that was really practical and I saw that this course was structured around a real UX project.

Since completing the course, how has your career progressed?

I didn’t just do the course to become a UX designer. I wanted to add UX design skills to my overall skillset. I’ve always been more of a generalist, so what I’m trying to do now with my own consultancy is provide people with a mixture of different skills.

Would you recommend the course to others? Why?

Absolutely! If you’re already in UX or if you’re just starting out, you’re going to learn so much, so many valuable principles and skills that will stand you in good stead. It doesn’t always have to lead to a career as a UX designer either. Anyone with a stake in how a website is run will get a lot out of the course.
