Kick start your career as an User Experience Designer
Whether it’s a smart fridge that replenishes itself online, or a watch that tracks our activity: the user experience of digital technology has become a reality for every professional designer. As a prospective student of User Experience Design (UXD) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) you might already have some initial ideas of how to improve your daily life with the use of technology. But what UXD teaches you is to funnel your creativity by putting the end users of your product at the forefront of the designing process.
At the core of UXD is how people’s experiences, emotions, values and goals intersect with technology. We will teach you how to design useful products and services based on how users behave. You could be the next bright engineer who creates an app that makes algebra fun for school kids by tapping into the latest virtual-reality technology.

"Design is a big thing
The Netherlands is just an amazing country. It is beautiful with the nature, architecture and culture. But I also chose The Netherlands to live in and do a study programme because design is a big thing here.
Work with companies
The Hague University of Applied Science was a perfect place for me to study CMD user experience design (UXD), because we have a lot of opportunities to work with real and big companies such as CoolBlue and TomTom, and we not only learn theory but have really fun and challenging, practical assignments.
Of course moving to a new country was a bit hard for me but it was totally worth it. I learned so many new things this year and am really happy with all the decisions. Everything is going great!
Trip to Linz in September
In the beginning of the first semester we had a trip to Linz, Austria. It was a great opportunity to meet the other new students and see all the art from the Ars Electronica festival. The bus trip was a challenge but the overall experience was good and it was really fun."
