Good design can positively affect our everyday lives and can be of vital importance in creating a better, 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 – going beyond aesthetics to consider history, location, functionality and environmental impact. You'll develop your own approach and learn to create spaces that improve the lives of those who use them.
First, you'll experiment with adapting existing spaces. Then create modern, sustainable spaces from scratch – translating ideas into sketches, CAD drawings and 3D models, and communicating them via presentations, pitches and portfolios. You'll learn how to read briefs, cost and manage projects, and inspire clients by developing a strong narrative – ensuring they're on board with your concept and feel comfortable paying.
Your hard work culminates in a final design show, where you'll showcase your work to an audience including press and industry professionals – view this year's portfolios.
