The Interior Design Honours programme describes projects that require little or no structural intervention with the existing building. The building is usually retained in it's original architectural condition with the new interior inserted or installed within. It can often have ephemeral and temporal qualities. Interior Design accepts the existing architectural context and evolves new interiors that are sensitively and appropriately responsive.
The programme can also be taken over four years in a sandwich mode that includes a one-year professional placement within the design industry, taken after your 2nd year of study. This enables you to incorporate a substantial professional practice element in your studies, for which you will receive an Advanced Diploma Professional Practice: Interior Architecture & Design at graduation. The programme are highly regarded within both the academic sector and the design industry and, over more than thirty years, have acquired a considerable reputation for providing high quality graduates to the creative industries.
Graduates from the BA Interior Design course are equipped to fulfil design roles in interior design practices, specialist studios and consultancies, building and property companies, advisory agencies, and the design departments of public and commercial organisations.
The creative industries sector is currently one of the fastest growing employment markets and graduates can take advantage of the many opportunities for design-related roles and activities across the built environment sector, as well as in the education, media, retail and entertainment sectors.
