The Interior Architecture and Design programme at the University for the Creative Arts will encourage you to embrace traditional means of designing alongside emerging technologies, helping you to become a versatile, innovative and entrepreneurial graduate. 

Setting briefs that are progressive and engage with real-world challenges, the curriculum provides a research-intensive learning environment, which will encourage you to challenge your preconceptions of the discipline and begin to understand the role of the designer in contemporary society. 

Project-based learning will be central to your studies and so the curriculum provides a research-intensive learning environment, which will encourage you to challenge your existing understandings of Interior Architecture and Design. 

You’ll also be asked to question and consider the role of the designer in contemporary society. Throughout your studies, you will use design as your primary means of inquiry and begin to understand that the process of designing is an intellectually rigorous research activity. 


This supportive, progressive and experimental educational environment, established 75 years ago, is where you will be taught alongside the BA (Hons) Architecture course with whom it shares a common Year 1 curriculum and delivery; and the MA Interior Design course which provides graduates of the BA with the opportunity to progress to postgraduate study within the subject area of Interiors. 

Many of our students pursue careers in interior architecture and design or related disciplines. The knowledge, understanding and skills they get from the course are broad and holistic, resulting in graduates going on to work in a variety of fields in the creative industries.
