Course summary

Why study BA Interior Architecture with us Interior architecture is distinct from the better known field of interior design, though the two are linked. Interior architecture degrees typically focus on the adaptation, remodelling and sustainable reuse of specific existing buildings, rather than the creation of new buildings. Course projects consider a diverse range of characterful buildings, that have reached the end of their current lifespan, across the public, private and commercial spheres. We will encourage you to develop an individual design approach, independent thinking, and innovative ideas. You will have the opportunity to develop an individual design approach, independent thinking and innovative ideas. You will have the opportunity to develop the skills required to address real-world situations in an imaginative and dynamic way, preparing you for the world of work. In addition to the three-year full-time course, we offer a four-year sandwich option. This pathway incorporates a one-year professional placement opportunity, recognised by a dedicated Advanced Diploma in Professional Practice: Interior Architecture & Design, which you'll receive at graduation. Year after year our students produce outstanding industry-standard work and leave the course with an impressive portfolio to launch their career. Take a look at some of the work from last year’s graduates on our Creative Graduates 2022 exhibition site. How you’ll develop your design skills During your studies, you will have access to our interior studios, which are specifically designed to mirror the environment of a professional design studio. The studios are equipped with Apple iMacs and an array of design software. You will also be able to access a diverse range of architecture and design books either digitally or physically, held in our extensive library building. Primarily concerned with the reinvention of the built environment, Interior Architecture is especially interested in the overlap between the public realm and the private worlds that we occupy, and the critical engagement with the social, political and cultural contexts which affect them. Teaching and learning are centred around the design project - ideas and the communication of them are tested and explored through this. Learning also happens outside the studio and classroom. Our students go on field trips in London and visit the sites that their studies relate to. Graduates from this course gain valuable and transferable skills the creative industry is looking for. The creative industries sector is currently one of the fastest growing employment markets and graduates take advantage of the many opportunities for design and architecture related roles and activities across the built environment sector. Students go on to work in architecture and design studios and other specialist design consultancies, advisory agencies and the design departments of public and commercial organisations.
