In the 21st century, the definition of ‘interior’ can no longer be simply equated to the inside of a building. Conditions of interior and interiority are increasingly affected and transformed by contemporary technologies as well as social and cultural forces and relationships.

This Interior Design (Hons) program at RMIT University will challenge your assumptions about interior design. You will learn to think and operate like a designer and, studying in a highly creative studio setting, you will learn from distinguished design practitioners. 

You will learn to design through the process of responding to a range of design briefs from the conceptual to real-life situations. You will be provided with technical and communication tools such as AutoCAD, 3D imaging, hand-drawing, film production and model making, as well as verbal presentation skills.

You'll have the opportunity to travel and engage with industry through workshops and projects that allow you to respond to complex design challenges.

Students in third and fourth year will have the opprtunity to undertake interships and gain valuable experience with leading design practices in Melbourne and internationally.


Many graduates work in interior design and architectural practices where commissions may range from domestic interior, retail and entertainment, to hospitality, corporate office and public building design. These practices range in scale from large corporate offices to teams of two or three.

Design practices are becoming increasingly multidisciplinary, with interior designers, landscape architects, architects, industrial designers and graphic designers collaborating on large-scale projects. Many graduates also establish their own design practices.

As an interior designer, you may also work in film and television design, set design for theatre, furniture design, exhibition design and curating, event planning and design journalism.
