Hi all,

I'm about to move to London, and was wondering if anyone can point me
towards some good Masters level courses in Usability / UX / interaction
design etc.

I've got a couple of years experience in UX work, but I get the
impression that having a Masters under my belt will have a positive
effect on my job prospects. Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi Lee,

the following courses are all I know of:

MSc in Human-Computer Interaction & Ergonomics, UCL
http://www.uclic.ucl.ac.uk/courses/modules.html

MSc in Human-Centred Systems, City University
http://www.soi.city.ac.uk/pgcourses/hcs/index.html

MA/MSc Design for Interactive Media, Middlesex University
http://lansdown.mdx.ac.uk/lceaSite/programmes/dim.html

MSc Interaction Design, Middlesex University
http://www.mdx.ac.uk/pgdesign/msc%20interaction%20design/011w292.asp

MA Interactive Media, University of the Arts London, London College of
Communication
http://maimm.arts.ac.uk/

MA Design Interactions, Royal College of Art
http://www.rca.ac.uk/pages/study/ma_interaction_design_171.html

MA Design Interaction, University of Westminster
http://www.wmin.ac.uk/mad/page-183

As you can probably see after having a look at the above websites,
there are big differences between the focus areas of each course. It's
up to you to decide which would be a good fit for your background and
career aspirations.

Last year I did the MSc in HCI at UCL, I was quite satisfied with it
and would be happy to discuss any details with you.

Good luck,

Alex

Hi Lee,

Thought Bath, Lancaster, Nottingham, and Sussex also offer relevant MSc/MRes
courses.

MSc in Human Communication and Computing, Bath:
http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/department/msc-admissions/msc-human-communication-and-computing/index.php

MRes in Human Computer Interaction, Lancaster:
http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk/postgraduates/mres.html

MSc in Interactive Systems Design, Nottingham:
http://www.cs.nott.ac.uk/ISD/

MSc in Human-Centred Computer Systems, Sussex:
http://www.sussex.ac.uk/informatics/1-3-2-2-7-3.html

As Alex said, these courses vary in terms of different research areas and
expertises offered. You can also email admissions tutors to further discuss
certain concern. I'm about to finish my HCI course (nice experience in
general, dead busy though) at Lancaster, and am willing to discuss more.
