Coventry University

User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) Bootcamp - North East/North West

Coventry University

Working as part of the Institute of Coding, Coventry University is delivering Skills Bootcamps as part of the government’s Skills for Life. This is a unique opportunity to learn industry best standards and practice, develop technical skills, and all whilst we work with you to find suitable employment after you finish the course.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible applicants. Please note that individuals are only eligible to participate in one Skills Bootcamp from June 2023- September 2023 but can apply for multiple Skills Bootcamps.

You do not need any prior qualifications but will need to meet eligibility criteria and entry requirements as highlighted below.

This 10-week technical training will feature blended learning: eight guided learning hours, Monday-Thursday 6pm to 8pm (online) and fifteen hours a week of structured, unsupervised. The two-hour live sessions will include academic content delivery and guided practical activities. Real-time content delivery will typically be recorded and made available for later review, and flexible support will be available outside of formally timetabled sessions and provided by Coventry University Student Proctors. The final two weeks of the course will be dedicated to employability tuition and interviews. However, the employer engagement team will start contacting you with suggestions for jobs to apply for from week five onwards and offer support to learners who may need it.

An important element of Bootcamp delivery will be practice-based learning. We will embed personal and professional learning and development into our core delivery to ensure that you develop the personal and interpersonal skills required to operate successfully as a digital professional.

Venue - Online


Upon successful completion of this course, learners will receive a Certificate of Attendance from Coventry University. Learners must attend a minimum of 75% of all online sessions to receive a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.


As part of the government's Skills Bootcamps initiative, this course is provided completely free of charge to the unemployed or self-employed applicants.

What will you learn?

User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) are the tools used to bridge the gap between technology, productivity, innovation and human creativity. User interfaces are the tools and systems that we interact with on devices every day; the user experience is a broader understanding of how tech users feel about those interactions, and what this means for their future use of the technology (e.g. will they keep using it?)

User-centred design is the core principle behind these concepts. This course will help you to consider problems and develop strategies to ensure that the products and services you work on providing an optimal experience for the end-user rather than creating barriers to entry.

The course will introduce elements of design theory and philosophy (including important areas like accessibility) before exploring practical techniques for designing effective user interfaces. You will also learn to use some of the industry-standard tools and apply common practices that can help you to develop successful interfaces from scratch.
