Subject

Human-computer interaction

User experience design involves consideration and analysis of the way that people encounter digital interfaces, products and environments in their everyday lives. It allows designers, developers and manufacturers to test the public response to their websites, products and spaces to ensure they are easy to use, accessible, inviting and functional. It invites designers to consider the emotional aspects of their work along with the functional and aesthetic ones.

The new BSc (Hons) User Experience Design course is designed to provide you with the broad skills and knowledge required to enter a career in this increasingly sought-after area.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

There are a lot of computing courses out there, and they vary a lot in content, modules and the way they work with employers, so individual courses can have very different outcomes. This is a course where you really need to get a good grade — employers really pay attention to the class of your degree and a low grade will serious hit your prospects. But you can get a job on pretty much any industry in the country with a computing degree - and organisation with an IT system and a web site needs graduates in this discipline - and many employers report difficulty in finding graduates. So most students do get jobs, and starting salaries are good, particularly in London. If you want to find out more about the prospects for a computer science course at a particular institution, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
