Why Interior Design? Our Interior Design degree will help you develop your own creative style, while gaining experience of interdisciplinary team working, drawing and model-making. You’ll explore spatial design and the role of sustainability in design, as you hone your skills in aesthetics, including colour, materials, light and atmosphere. With opportunities to work on live briefs for retail, leisure, workplace, museum and exhibition spaces, and gain experience on placements with organisations such as Brinkworth, turnerbates and AECOM, our graduates stand out from the competition. There is also the chance to undertake field trips to locations such as Berlin, Barcelona or Prague, to examine iconic historical and contemporary buildings and interiors, and exhibit your work to international employers at renowned graduate exhibition, Free Range in London (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details). You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers and be able to enter industry competitions – one of our students was recently shortlisted for the Amara Student Interior Designer of the Year, for example. Our new Design Centre, complete with dedicated interior design studios, offers a special collaborative, creative environment where talent can develop and thrive. You’ll also benefit from use of industry-standard design packages such as AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Suite, Revit and SketchUp, and state-of-the-art technology including laser cutting equipment and 3D printers.
