Course summary

Learn to transform and repurpose spaces on our new Interior Design course.

  • Develop design proposals, working across a range of interior spaces such as restaurants, hotels, retail spaces and museums.
  • Repurpose existing spaces in the public sphere - finding new uses for old buildings is a key skill.
  • Enrich your learning with opportunities for practical work experience.
Our BA (Hons) Interior Design course focuses on existing buildings and spaces, and finding innovative ways to use them. We'll explore the experiential qualities of the spaces we use every day - lighting, environment, materials, finishes - and how these are used to create mood or ambiance. As a budding interior designer, you'll apply your design skills to a broad range of interiors, such as hotels, restaurants, exhibitions, retail and shop fitting, offices and commercial premises, museums, and galleries.

Course details


Year one You'll begin by undertaking projects that cover fundamental skills in observation, measured surveys, and understanding structures. Year two You'll continue to design project work, which will require you to develop your drawing, CAD, and model making skills to effectively communicate your ideas and design proposals in presentations and formal critiques. Year three In your final year, a project that includes the construction of an element of your design work at full size will enable a more in-depth understanding of construction and the tactile qualities of materials.

Assessment method

Assessment is 100% based on coursework, presented at the end of each of the modules. At this point you’ll receive summative feedback, so you’ll know how to improve or develop your work. Throughout the module, you'll receive formative feedback through individual and/or group tutorials, peer seminar sessions, and group critiques. In many cases, this feedback is received both verbally and in a written format. All feedback aims to enable you to improve your work, and you'll receive the summative feedback and marks within three weeks of the completed module submission date.
