Interior design transforms spaces through elements like furniture, volume, and placement. Start your career in this exciting field with us.
Learning on the course is based on a sequence of ‘integrated design projects’, in which you are asked to apply and demonstrate various aspects of your learning, as well as your individual creativity and originality, to specified design tasks. Projects are supplemented by a variety of lecture, seminar and workshop sessions to provide specialist skills and knowledge. Your ideas and proposals will be tested and explored in regular tutorials and reviews, in which critical evaluation, guidance and feedback is provided, and from which you will be expected to develop and improve your work. The curriculum focuses on six core learning strands which are developed progressively throughout all years of the course. Design Thinking and Processes — How designers research, analyse and make decisions, and how the design of interiors is initiated, conceptualized, developed, sanctioned, and realised. Materiality and Technics — How and from what interiors are constructed, assembled and operate technically and technologically. Environment and Performance — How environmental and sustainability issues and post-occupancy performance and adaptability are addressed in the design, construction and use of interiors. Contextual and Critical Analysis — How contextual factors frame, inform and constrain the design of interiors, and their analysis and interpretation. Communication and Media — How the design of interiors is represented and communicated across a range of media and techniques. Reflective and Professional Practice — How reflective practice is applied in design, and how professional skills are employed in design practice.
