Dublin City University is running a one year, part-time Springboard+ Certificate in User Experience at DCU.

This course addresses a gap in the labour market for UX/UI developers/designers as identified in the National Skills Bulletin (2020 p.86). The course has been designed to provide participants with an immersive set of modules relating to enhancing users online experience (UX) and supporting user interaction (UI). The Certificate in User Experience consists of two subject-specific, integrated, 15 credit modules (Exploring Interaction Design and User Experience Design) and one, 7.5 credit, Career Transitions and Success module.

The course will be delivered through engaging teaching and learning methods with a mix of both leading academics and active industry practitioners. The course will be taught primarily online, with tutorials held mainly on weekday evenings through live online classrooms. Students will have an opportunity to meet peers and tutors and practice tool use etc. In addition, students will attend selected relevant industry events. This course is the perfect launch pad for those who wish to pursue a career in UX and is ideal for those who are unable to attend full-time campus based programmes.


What is Springboard+

Springboard+ is an initiative that aims to provide free/ subsidised education, upskilling and reskilling opportunities through higher education in areas where there is a skills need. Courses are free for people who are unemployed, who were previously self-employed, and for people returning to work. The courses are also available at a 10% fee for anyone in employment looking to upskill or pivot. Many of the courses are flexible and timetable friendly and are structured around part-time, evening or weekend classes
