If you’re interested in art, architecture and interiors, as well as in people, this well-established Interior Design degree will prepare you for a career in this growing and competitive industry. Starting with the principles of interior design, you’ll progress to larger projects, explore spatial design and specialise in the remodelling of existing buildings for new use. You will work on industry-related projects, working with professional designers, learning how to handle a project with real clients and budgets, and how to operate as a freelance interior designer. This can lead to work placements and project management skills that employers value. Live projects are a key feature of our Interior Design course, and thanks to our excellent links, our students’ work is regularly selected and used by companies across the UK.
