Looking at real-world challenges to transform interior spaces - both old and new - our new BA Interior Design (Hons) degree at University for the Creative Arts Canterbury bridges the gaps between architecture, fine art and spatial practice.


In this Interior Design (Hons) programme from University for the Creative Arts you'll work alongside students across the School of Architecture and Design to create designs for various settings, and question and consider the role of the designer in contemporary society.

Through experimentation, play and research you will engage with design briefs as agents of social, cultural, political, and economic change.

As a result of this vigorous blend of practical and research-led study, you'll become a confident and innovative interior designer with focus on social responsibility, materiality, specification, and careful control of the holistic human experience, in interior spaces.


There are open plan studio spaces for each year of the course, used for group tutorials and personal working. Facilities for the course include: laser cutters, 3D printers, a virtual reality lab, a 3D workshop with machines for working in wood, metals, plastics and ceramics, and fully-equipped computer studios with Macs and PCs running software for design and animation.
