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 Architecture & Spatial 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 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 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.
Our annual Subject Futures Week is an exciting event and an excellent opportunity for our students to explore the potential of their course and understand where their university experience can lead them beyond graduation. It offers a unique chance to network with high profile industry professionals from the arts, TV, film, fashion and more.
Materials, Exhibitions, Event and Visits
Materials for workshops and for master classes, entry to competitions associated with your programme of study, and those visits that are necessary for your course are all made available at no additional charge.
We recommend that you budget approximately £300 per academic year for extra materials and study trips. It is up to you how much you choose to buy and which trips to participate in, but this is an average cost. Please note that this is not compulsory and will depend upon the projects you choose to complete. In 2016 students were given the option to go on a study trip to Rotterdam and Madrid.
We also recommend that you allow approximately £300 for your Graduate Exhibition, for items such as printing, travel, publicity, accommodation and food.
Methods of Learning and Assessments
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars and/or workshop based sessions. You will be assessed through a mixture of studio based design critiques and written assessments. Through your final year you will be assessed continually, culminating in a major exhibition of your design work.
