MA in Interaction Design | 2018 - 2019
The advantage of learning directly from active and prominent professionals of your field is invaluable. At Harbour.Space, and because of this unique opportunity, I found the inspiration I was looking for.
MA in Interaction Design | 2016 - 2017
Don’t expect to be a student here, expect to be a professional starting from day one. My projects here have been able to give me real-life insights about design as a job. I’ve learnt to understand it as a process that requires research, planning, strategizing and sitting together with a team of people who are not designers at all.
MA in Interaction Design | 2020 - 2021
Harbour.Space was a great experience. An intense year full of new knowledge, hard work, short nights but also friends and tremendous fun and learning. I am grateful for the opportunity to sharpen my skills and to understand how to develop my career. Personally, I experienced how important it is to stay in balance throughout the modules.
MA in Interaction Design | 2020 - 2021
The teachers here are amazing. Their experience, expertise and the quality of feedback that they provide dramatically accelerate the learning curve. All of this combined with an education model that is far more effective than the traditional one I’m used to, making this a very worthwhile investment for me.
MA in Interaction Design | 2019 - 2020
What a year! We grew as professionals and as individuals, and I’m so proud of who we became. Harbour.Space is truly what we make out of it, and we absolutely rocked it. To my classmates, I owe you this experience. I’ll cherish our friendship and memories for life and hope our paths cross again.

With our Interaction Design Scholarship instead of paying €125 for the application fee, the price reduces to the non-refundable €85. The fee guarantees we can process every single application fairly and maintain the highest possible standard of assessment.
This will only be offered to those who pay the application fee before October 22, 2021.
The next starting date for the programme is October 25, 2021. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, that means you can start every three weeks.
The deadline to apply for the Interaction Design Scholarship is October 22, 2021 or until full enrolment has been reached. Therefore, we recommend applying as soon as possible to ensure that there is a place available within the programme (and to have time to process your visa application, if required).
As all of our courses are taught in English, we require that our students speak and comprehend English well. While we take work experience and standardised test scores into consideration, we do not have a specific set of requirements. Your abilities to convey your thoughts in English and whether they will be good enough to engage during the courses, will be mainly evaluated during the interview.
We understand we’re living in uncertain times. That’s why students who are unable to pursue their education offline will have the option of deferring their studies to another semester or year.
In that case, they are kindly requested to communicate their decision as soon as possible to the Admissions Team. They will be more prepared than ever to help and evaluate each applicant’s situation on a case-by-case basis to find a solution that ensures that nobody misses the opportunity to join Harbour.Space.
Accommodation is not provided by Harbour.Space. Students are expected to find their accommodation on their own. We will add you to a student group at your request and provide an accommodation guide. We can also recommend some student organisations that could help you with finding housing.
For our campus in Bangkok, all non-Thai national students must first submit the documents to the local Thai Embassy or Consulate to apply for the visa in their countries, following the process of applying to the COE (Certificate of Entry).
