From commercial to residential spaces, BA (Hons) Interior Design opens the doors to a career where you can devise creative, inspiring solutions and develop your own distinctive professional practice.

Why choose this course?
Explore how people relate to the architectural space around them. Gain unique insights into the connection between interior and exterior space. Build your appreciation of the many elements – from user experience to texture and colour – which contribute to effective and appealing interior design.

Is this course for you?
If you want a strong understanding of both traditional and contemporary interior design techniques and approaches, together with the freedom to articulate your own ideas and challenge convention, this is your course.

How you will learn
You can experiment in our well-resourced, professional design studios using latest 3D computer software and in our traditional wood and metal workshop facilities. You’ll have access to specialist textiles equipment and machinery too.

Opportunities and experiences
Through real-world project briefs, you will respond to design challenges and devise functional, aesthetic and hazard-free spaces. Your projects could span anything from retail and hospitality interiors to exhibition stands and furniture design. The course culminates in a sustained design project on a theme of your choosing.

Careers and employability
You could advance not only to interior design roles but also to careers in styling, retail display or set design for film, TV and stage. Some graduates set up their own consultancy practices or work on a freelance basis, building on the entrepreneurial instincts they develop on this course.
