Apply to CIID!

Last call for boarding! The admissions deadline for next year’s Interaction Design Programme at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction design is fast approaching.

I can only enthusiastically encourage you to apply – the curriculum, the faculty (both permanent and visiting), the open lectures, and the overall atmosphere are all wonderful, and  – if this year and last are anything to go by – your fellow students will be great too. You’ve only got a couple of days until the deadline (the 3rd), so polish that portfolio and write that essay!

As an education concerned with the broad potential of design and technology, the CIID Interaction Design Programme is looking for a wide diversity of students. We plan to have a class of 25 people and welcome applicants from all over the world with educational backgrounds in varying disciplines. You should be curious and creative, enthusiastic about design and have the desire to study in a cross-disciplinary environment. Whether you’re currently studying or working, you should be interested in the connections between education and interaction design practice.

To find out more about the application process and requirements please refer to the website: – there is a list of FAQs but if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

The curriculum teaches students to apply technology to everyday life through the design of software, products and services. We believe in a hands-on and user-centered approach to interaction design. Students learn the programming and electronics skills needed to work with technology as a design medium. They conduct user-research and experience prototyping to provide real-world grounding to their concepts. Frequent work in multi-disciplinary teams encourages peer-to-peer learning and a diverse selection of visiting faculty exposes students to a range of expertise.

You can also trawl through my writeups of all the courses for my personal view on them.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask Alie, or if you’d prefer a student perspective, you are welcome to get in touch.
