Course overview

The King's UX Design Career Accelerator programme content is shaped by the Department of Digital Humanities within the Faculty of Arts & Humanities at King’s College London in collaboration with tech and employer partners like Creative Navy.

The 6 month, online programme focuses on:

  • Teaching you the interpersonal and metacognitive skills required to effectively work with engineers within various contexts to create digital products and services that add value to customers’ lives.
  • The project-based learning approach of this programme ensures that you apply your new capabilities in industry-backed projects attached to each of the three courses, as well as a final Employer Project, where you’ll work with your peers to solve a problem co-designed by an employer.
  • Career coaching is an integral part of the Career Accelerator programmes. Coaches work with you in 1:1 sessions to identify and develop the employability traits and personal skills needed to thrive at every stage of your career.
