I thoroughly enjoyed working on this course. It has expanded my mind and knowledge and I have grown as a person professionally and personally. The brief was definitely a challenging task, but with the help, guidance and encouragement of our mentor, it made me realise I wouldn't have had it any other way

I can’t speak highly enough of this course! It was a transformative experience that exceeded my expectations and set me up with the confidence and practical skills to apply for a Junior UX role, and that is exciting!
