Program description

Interior Design BA (Hons)

From the outset, you'll develop design proposals, working across a range of interior spaces such as restaurants, hotels, retail spaces and museums. In today's design world, sustainability is paramount. Finding new uses for old buildings is a key skill.

Design Studio projects form the core of the course, and you're supported through seminars and lectures to develop knowledge of contemporary interior design practice. You'll also have the opportunity to learn about teamwork and client relationships by working on "live" projects with external audiences or collaborators. Historical and critical studies modules allow you to learn about the history of design and develop key writing and communicating skills, leading to an extended essay in your final year.

You'll explore the professional world through Professional Context modules, developing knowledge of contemporary designers, how they work, and the projects they have completed. This will include visits to factories, production companies, studios, exhibitions, and recently completed projects.
