Interior Architecture and Design (With Preparatory Semester) (Full-time)
Why study this course?
On this three-year course you’ll be immersed in this distinct and rigorous practice that involves thinking about how interior elements and spaces are inhabited by people.
Our Interior Architecture and Design (with preparatory semester) BA (Hons) degree is the ideal choice if you need some introductory study before undertaking an undergraduate degree but don’t need to complete a full foundation year. Unlike a foundation year, which is designed to let you explore a wide range of subjects, this course will focus on providing you with skills specific to the study of interior architecture and design.
You will complete this degree in three years, starting in September. Following the preparatory semester you’ll join students starting on the standard course in January. This means that Year 1 will consist of three semesters and you’ll be required to study at the University during some of the summer between Year 1 and 2. During the subsequent two years of your studies you’ll follow the same schedule and study the same content as students on the Interior Architecture and Design BA (Hons) course.
While you may make a considerable saving in time and fees by choosing this route over a four-year degree with a foundation year, do be aware that you’ll have to budget for the additional semester in your first year.
Our Interior Architecture and Design (with preparatory semester) BA (Hons) course will equip you with the skills necessary to begin a career in the interior design industry. You’ll develop specialist skills in observational and spatial drawing, model making, digital drawing and material investigations. You’ll also learn how to research, analyse and articulate your design proposals and their cultural context.
The preparatory semester will focus on developing your fundamentals skills in drawing, modelling, IT platforms and visual communication. This will ensure that you are prepared and confident to begin more rigorous study at undergraduate level.
Following the preparatory semester you’ll join students starting on the standard interior architecture and design course in January. To find out more about the course content beyond the foundation year, please visit our Interior Design and Architecture BA (Hons) course page.
