WHY professionals take our courses
10 reasons why you should take our course
1. User Researchers
are in high demand
Organisations are increasingly realising the value of user experience in making them competitive. There is a high demand of UX people in the public sector as well.
The government is extending the digital services as part of the Digital Transformation strategy, which is creating a new demand for a high number of user researchers. As a senior member put it “the Government is UX hungry”.
2. User Researchers' pay is lucrative
User Researchers (URs) are well paid because they bring high value to companies through their understanding of the clients / users.
Depending on the contract type and seniority level, URs can get up to £600 per day in the UK.
3. Our courses will help you stay ahead in UX
Our courses provide you with hands-on knowledge on UX Research. You will learn how to plan your research, the different methods you can use to conduct the research with users and work through real projects applying the learning.
In addition to practical exercises, our instructors will discuss theoretical aspects of research and design to provide you with a holistic understanding UX.
4. User research is for everyone in the UX team
As a UX Designer, understanding user research is important because designers and researchers work close together to understand and address user needs.
It is also important for everyone else in the team to understand what goes on behind the scenes when conducting user research.
5. You will learn how agile teams work
Most digital companies work (or aspire to work) agile, therefore, understanding this methodology is essential for people wanting to get into UX.
You will learn about the different research phases (discovery, alpha, beta, live) and how user experience research and design fits with each stage of development.

Influencing stakeholders is an important skill when working in UX. Engagement helps the development of the product but sometimes there can be conflicting needs (users and stakeholders).
