Description

Our design-driven course will enable you to create innovative design solutions for interior spaces. Specialising in an area of personal interest within the course framework, you will become an architectural design innovator and problem solver, combining practical skills with spatial awareness, practical applications and function. This is a course with a multi-disciplinary approach, which considers the influence of art, culture, the humanities, society, economics and history on design. This broad approach will develop you as a conscious designer, responding in a creative and innovative manner.

This course is designed for professionals working in a related industry, or graduates with a related honours degree. You’ll develop the skills and gain the experience to pursue a career in art, design and architectural practices. Recent graduate roles have included interior architect, interior designer, retail architect and roles in design firms and consultancies, both in the UK and overseas.
