We believe that good design positively affects everyday lives and can be of vital importance in creating a better and more sustainable future for all. This degree teaches you the importance of location, context and client –preparing you for a fast-paced, professional career in interior design.
Examining both public and private spaces, you’ll learn how new designs are created in response to the purpose of a space and the needs of its user – considering its history, location, size, architecture and environmental impact. You’ll develop your own personal approaches and learn to create spaces that improve the lives of those who use them.
You'll learn a broad range of methods and principles central to contemporary interior design and develop hand drawings, digital visualisations, 3D prints and physical models – building designs in our workshop, before documenting them in our photography studio. You’ll also learn the financial and marketing aspects of the industry, developing the business acumen to maintain a career in this industry.
As you explore multiple ways of investigating design problems, through words, images, drawings and making, you'll enhance your creativity, confidence, design ability, capacity for innovation and future potential. Everything you learn will enable you to develop your personal style and ambition as a designer, and help you to go onto professional practice in employment, your own practice or further study in a variety of national and international contexts.
