About this course


Course option

1.0year

Full-time | 2021

This one year course will allow you to further enhance your technical knowledge and creative thinking in order to produce design solutions that challenge future-ready contemporary design practice across a range of commercial settings. More in-depth exploration and research of past and present retail and leisure spaces will allow you to experiment with creative thinking in order to produce speculative design scenarios that are fit for purpose and relevant to the interior design industry.
Further development of your own personal design style will continue to be the focus in the top up year in order to push boundaries and take creative risks whilst considering the wider ramifications of your design choices. In turn, this will allow for personal investigation and growth which will ultimately be explored in the Honours Project that will go on public show at the end of year exhibition.
Digital technology will continue to underpin design concepts in order to create contemporary spaces that engage with the emerging digital society we now occupy. This will be further explored in the top up year with more emphasis on the emerging trends that are driving the design industry.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
