What you'll learn on the course

Interior Design

Course programme

Course overview

This new interior design course interprets the discipline widely to include all sectors of the commercial, leisure and entertainment industries. We will explore the theory and techniques of the design of interior spaces, with a particular emphasis on architectural form and the re-use of redundant buildings.

Within this framework, your project work can follow many different approaches, from the sculptural and conceptual to the specific and technical, but above all it is about solving problems for human need. You will develop skills in research and how to organise and categorise information. Ultimately you will be shaping your own future by your own interests and abilities.

You will develop an understanding of the cultural context of architecture and design, and how the design industry relies upon the input of consultants such as engineers, surveyors, building trades and craftspeople. You will develop a working knowledge of construction, building services and materials technology, and the skills needed to create environments that are viable yet innovative. Visits are undertaken on a regular basis both home and abroad to buildings, exhibitions and places of interest.
