Interior Architecture and Spatial Design BA (Hons)

*Formerly known as Interior Design BA (Hons).

The Interior Architecture & Spatial Design programme is focused on developing professional and design skills and an innovative approach to solving three dimensional and spatial problems across a range of social and commercial contexts. Our Interior Design degree will introduce you to creative practices, through studio projects informed by historical and contemporary design, current trends, social contexts and the relationships of other art and design areas to Interior Design. Many of the projects you will be working on have an industry or business focus to give you practical experience, ready for when you embark upon your career.

Our Interior Architecture & Spatial Design degree is a vibrant and creative course. There is a high demand for this expertise in the industry, with the regional expansion scheme, including public and private building plans, so you are in the perfect place to study this evolving discipline.

By joining the course you will become part of a unique learning environment with very close and guided support from teaching tutors. Our tutors are experts in industry, many of whom run their own design practices and hold extensive links to the industry.

You will work with contemporary technologies and develop your own visual language, giving you the knowledge and confidence to design for a range of applications. Our design studio and technical workshops provide the ideal environment for you to be innovative in your production of two and three-dimensional work. You will focus on aspects of design technology that can be applied to designing commercial, domestic and public living spaces, linking practical 3D projects to the theory you will learn.
