Interior design is an exhilarating practice that responds to the rapid pace of change in the design of our environments. It involves an exciting range of projects embracing commercial, social and event design such as for workspaces, hotels, retail spaces, museums, exhibitions, health and educational facilities. We will introduce you to the latest research in the sectors as well as our connected industry professionals who will bring their knowledge and experience to the course.
Our studios are run by practitioners and experts in their field, who focus on projects that debate contemporary, relevant and future-facing design issues and topics. We embrace a sustainable focus throughout, looking to changing practices and emerging patterns of behaviour that reflect a concern for the environment.
We teach both CAD and visualising skills to give you the best opportunity to develop these skills, giving you the confidence to communicate your ideas through a range of required industry media, and ensuring that you have employment credentials.
The interiors courses work with well-known businesses, associations, museums and galleries, running live projects that give you the opportunity to discuss and exhibit your projects in a professional and commercial environment which in turn helps you to develop a range of presentational skills that work towards building your career.
The course takes place at the School of Art, Architecture and Design in Aldgate, the heart of London's creative district, which gives you access to an abundance of world-class resources scattered throughout London. You’ll be surrounded by the best interior practices situated in Shoreditch, Clerkenwell, the City of London, the west end and Mayfair, as well as the cultural institutions for which London is famous.
We require a portfolio of a maximum of 12 images displaying a variety of work/media. This is to ensure a good fit for students and the level of study in interior design, as well as to match your abilities and qualifications to the level required for the module learning outcomes. Level 4 is open to a wide arts based audience whilst level 5 requires some prior study in interior design.
Please email your digital portfolio along with your study abroad application, detailing one suite of modules you wish to take, either level 4 or 5. You cannot mix these modules with any other at the University. These modules are available in both the autumn and spring semesters.
Please note, in addition to the tuition fee, there may be additional costs for things like equipment, materials, printing, textbooks or trips.
