From Graphic Designer
to UX Designer
UX Designer at The Hut Group
The knowledge gained from the course, teamed with my UX portfolio, is really what secured me my role as a UX designer.
I had five years of previous experience as a Graphic and Web Designer. I felt what I was doing in digital design was interesting, but there was so much that I needed to explore. I wanted to explore UX design because it felt like an industry that was really thriving.
The reviews were really good and I could see that so many people had positive experiences. I spoke to a few students who had already done it and it was really well respected.
The fact that the diploma came credit-rated by the Glasgow Caledonian University was really important. It showed employers that it was a distinguished, reputable and legitimate course, not just some short introduction to UX design I randomly found online.
The diploma actually changed my career and it’s given me the opportunity that I wanted. The knowledge gained from the course, teamed with my UX portfolio, is really what secured me my role as a UX designer.
I definitely recommend the UX Design Institute to other people, and I have done it for everyone that’s messaged me on LinkedIn about it. Taking the Professional Diploma in UX Design has been one of the best things that I’ve ever done.
I’d say do your research; read reviews, speak to the UX Design Institute team, read Medium articles on UX to make sure it’s something you’re interested in.
