You will work in teams to learn basic methods of user research. Our discovery trip will take you out onto the streets and help you understand why some services work brilliantly, while others simply don’t. 

You will identify how service design can help you in your own professional work.   You’ll be tutored by experts who will share their insights and inside knowledge. They will explain how you can begin to connect to the world of service design and be part of a growing international community.
