Course details

On this UX Design masters, you will learn to create engaging interfaces and interactions, appropriately evaluating usability and professionally applying key principles of experience design. You'll gain the ability to critically reflect upon and evaluate working methods and find the most effective ways to collaborate on projects. You'll also learn how to pitch your ideas; communicating concepts and presenting artefacts visually with clarity and enthusiasm.


This UX Design master's degree is for anyone who is excited by the opportunities presented by technology and who wants to carry out practice-based research to create thoughtful and engaging user experiences.

Games Academy graduates have worked as:

Creative practitioners at companies such as MediaTonic, Firesprite, Creative Assembly, Project Gamechanger and Rare
Creative AI specialists at companies including Ultrahaptics, Solutionpath and Bewsign
Researchers and developers at companies such as Facebook
Further study at doctoral-level in artificial intelligence and/or data science, sponsored by the likes of Google


By devising a series of small-scale creative artefacts, you'll use your existing ideas about development practice and then experiment with new approaches to challenge these ideas. This will enable you to create a personal case study, from which you can define how to expand and enrich your practice. Beyond the personal case study, you'll gain a broader sense of the contexts in which these practices are applied across disciplines.
