Summer School

CIID Summer School 2017 is now launching! Another exciting edition for a hands on exploration of interaction design. Join our mailing list to get news on the programme announcement.

For an overview of CIID Summer School 2017, see below:

Based on the learning from our previous editions and from the enthusiastic demand, this year we have designed a comprehensive programme with a choice of curated one week workshops running from June 26th till July 28th.


The week long workshops have been designed to be stand-alone so it is possible to participate in one, two, three, four or all five weeks. Based on the feedback from our Summer School participants or alumni, applying to more than one workshop gives a better chance to meet more people and deeply enjoy the Summer School experience.

We will bring you together with people from all over the world with the same drive and passion for learning, whether you are a working professional or a student, and our renowned faculty will lead the workshops. It is our experience that both the knowledge gained and the enthusiasm created encourages participants to continue studying interaction design at a higher level and to use their new-found skills in their current practice.

At CIID, we follow a ‘learning by doing’ philosophy, so previous knowledge of interaction design is not required – we are looking for a diverse group of people from a range of backgrounds who work well as a group. An appetite for learning and willingness to cooperate in a team is more important than having prior specific knowledge of the subject you are coming to learn.

Please note that there will be a maximum number of 20 places available for each workshop – first come first served.
