The Interior Design (Hons) course at Kingston University comprises a series of projects increasing in complexity. It will give you an understanding of light and colour, materials, space and volume. Projects range from the design of temporary events to exploring the long-term reuse of buildings.
Year 1 introduces the principles of interior design. Recent projects include designing an event within a 17th century palace and the radical reuse of a former department store and disused steel works.
Year 2 focuses on the processes of interior design. Projects have included developing a hotel attached to the International Space Station and the redesign of transport interchanges in collaboration with Transport for London.
Year 3 focuses on the practice of interior design. You'll complete a dissertation, a portfolio and a major design project. This project will reflect everything you've learnt and will be the most significant expression of your personal design vision. Examples of recent projects include designing pop-up events with Speedo for the Rio 2016 games and the creative reuse of former factories, hotels and performance venues.
Our graduates enter a variety of fields within design and the creative industries, notably architectural and interior design practice, exhibition design, museum design and television production design. Graduates work for major companies such as Brinkworth, Universal Design Studio, Casson Mann, Squire and Partners and Fitch.
