Date: 6 October 2022

London Met’s interior design courses have been ranked third in the country in this year’s Guardian League Tables, with an overall score of 89.8 out of 100, and 80% of students satisfied with their course.

In addition, the University scored particularly highly for student satisfaction with teaching (85%) and student satisfaction with feedback (84.7%).

This success comes hot on the heels of Interiors students giving a 95% overall satisfaction score in the National Student Survey (NSS).

Apart from Interior Design this subject area includes our Furniture and Product Design BA (now titled Product and Furniture Design BA for 2023-24), Interior Architecture and Design BA, and Interior Design and Decoration BA.

London Met’s Interiors courses cover an exciting range of future-thinking projects embracing commercial, community and  temporary projects such as workspace, luxury, hotels, retail, museums, exhibitions, and health and educational spaces. The courses have a particular emphasis on sustainable and environmental design.

Industry practitioners enrich the studio projects and curriculum through lectures and networking events covering contemporary and relevant design issues and topics. Students have a professional practice placement in their second year working alongside London’s most experienced and informed designers. 

This professionally focused curriculum enables graduate successes such as Alessi Bucci’s designing the first ever Starbucks cafe in Milan. Linda Boronkay rose to fame when in her second year winning an open design brief leading to an international reputation working with Martin Brudnizki Design Studio followed by Soho House and now winning competitions with her own practice.

The Product and Furniture Design BA embraces trans-disciplinary thinking, rigorous design process and imaginative approaches to materiality and making. 

Reinvigorated through the vision of notable designer and Course Leader, Simon Hasan, students have produced noteworthy projects for Lodes Lighting and Brompton Bicycle, alongside outstanding graduate work that has been recently exhibited during the London Design Festival.

Notable alumni of the course include Yinka Ilori, whose work is currently in a mini-retrospective at the Design Museum London, and Amechi Mandi who has just received House & Garden magazine’s Rising Star 2022 award.
