We invite applications for our MSc Human-Centred Systems degree course at
City University London. This intellectually stimulating course equips
students with the latest theories and practices to research, design and
evaluate novel interactive systems and technologies and to undertake and
lead creative Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX)
activities and projects. The course is taught over 12 months (Full Time) or
24 months (Part Time).

MSc Human-Centred Systems at City provides:


Teaching excellence:

   - Engaging and informative teaching delivered by accomplished academics
   from the Centre for Human-Computer Interaction Design, providing a healthy
   balance of theory and practice from a university that prides itself on
   promoting ‘academic excellence for business and the professions.’
   - A maximum class size of 40 students in 2015/16 to ensure a
   staff-student ratio that enables the highest-quality education.
   - A vibrant, friendly and supportive community and the opportunity for
   students to get involved in Centre activities, including the HCID open day
   – our annual mini-conference with talks from UX professionals and academics.


Professional relevance:

   - An exciting programme of guest lectures and seminars and a dedicated
   series of HCS tutorials led by industry professionals. Recent HCS tutorials
   have featured industry speakers from eBay and Google.
   - A strong track record of placing gradates in roles such as user
   experience consultant, information architect, interaction designer,
   usability specialist and accessibility specialist in leading business
   consultancies, digital agencies, IT companies, government and commercial
   organisations.
   - The option of a 6 month internship after the taught part of the course
   has been completed, which provides valuable work experience and increases
   employability.
   - Use of City Interaction Lab - our usability lab, equipped with the
   latest technologies including eye tracking equipment, screen capture
   software, mobile testing stations and more.
