This course offers you the opportunity to gain industry-aligned design skills and knowledge that respond to the changing shape of the interior and spatial design industry. You will undertake client briefs, and explore commercial and residential interiors through the investigation of architectural elements, spatial planning, interior styling and understanding of the design and function of interior products. You will develop skills in a number of different areas including researching strategies, design development techniques and visual presentation skills via the production of hand drawn and digitally generated schemes and scale models. You will focus on design principles, methods and processes that are underpinned by industry knowledge and contact. Over 40 spatial and architectural practices currently support this course. You will be given the opportunity to develop your employment skills, knowledge and awareness through work placements with these companies alongside your studies. Career opportunities exist within architecture, interior design and furniture design.

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?
