Programme spotlight: BA (Hons) Interior Design

The BA (Hons) Interior Design is a dynamic, cross-cultural programme that aims to develop you as a professional who can take on any and every design challenge. We give you the opportunity to develop your own individual approach to interior design, while preparing you with the skills and knowledge you will need for industry practice and beyond.

You will learn about the history and theory of interior design, as well as gaining practical design skills by working on live projects.

You also benefit from talks from visiting design industry experts. This September, the Interior Design lecture series features: Imagination Creative Director Paulo Pimentel, founder of Raw Studio and Regent's lecturer Nick Rawcliffe and Mona Lindell, Account Manager at ING MEDIA and programme alumna. 

Live projects

On this programme, you will benefit from working on live projects, giving you real-world experience and industry contacts as well as a chance to develop and show your talents.

Previously, students have worked on a wide variety of different projects, including the redevelopment of the Occupational Therapy Space within the Healthcare Department of Wormwood Scrubs Prison, London. One student, Nora Ahmeti, explained that this project provided an opportunity to empathise with those less fortunate and to understand how space and its modelling can lift the disadvantaged to a more positive state of mind.

Another live project involved developing a hovering allotment in a park in Islington, which received wide acclaim. Opened by the Mayor of Finsbury, it featured in the London Festival of Architecture, and was included in the Open House London to-see list.

'I always feel as though I can speak to my class tutor and ask for advice or help with whatever project I am doing, and this is a key aspect to making the classes enjoyable and successful. You also learn so much from your classmates, who come from a wide range of different backgrounds. Since meeting my tutors my motivation and passion for Interior Design have grown.

'Being in the centre of Marylebone High Street we can walk 10 minutes to many of London's famous streets and buildings. Being able to visit these famous architectural sites helps make sense of everything we’re learning.'

'The course has been both exciting and thought-provoking. It is helpful being taught design alongside communication. Our tutors help us hone key skills such as teamwork and public speaking. Moreover, since London is a hub for design, I've been able to explore and visit places my tutors mention in lectures, because everything is within the vicinity.'
