Interior and Spatial Design With Foundation Year
The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
Students on our course produce designs for residential, retail, and work-based spaces as well as undertaking projects for the leisure, hospitality and event and performance industries. Our course will give you the opportunity to work with private and public spaces and within a wide range of buildings and sites as you develop as a versatile designer. The course covers the conceptual, theoretical and practical skills needed to become a successful Interior and Spatial Designer. We look for creative thinkers who respond to the challenges of working locally, in London, nationally and internationally.
Create stunning designs through drawings, scale models and visuals
You will learn how to successfully complete all aspects of design projects from initial site visits and client briefings through to final presentations. We will teach you studio and workshop based model-making skills using our laser cutting and 3D prototyping equipment. You'll be taught drawing and CAD visualisation techniques using AutoCAD, Rhino and Photoshop, so that you can present your work with confidence.
Understand the theory as well as the practice of design
We teach historical and contextual studies, giving you a knowledge of the relationship between design theory and practice. You'll also analyse the material qualities of spaces so that you can specify fixtures and fittings.
Through group reviews of work and presentations to clients, you will develop your communication skills to a professional standard and learn to work as part of a design team. Developing as a multi-disciplinary designer with a diverse portfolio, you focus on a particular area of Interior and Spatial Design with your final major project in your third year of the course.
What are the course entry requirements?
Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements for the 3-year undergraduate Program, or those who do not feel fully prepared for a Level 4 course, will be considered for the 4-year Program including a Foundation Year.
