Subject

Interior design and architecture

The interior architecture course focuses on the design of interior spaces within existing buildings, and on design that links human activities and events to specific places and spaces.

The Interior Architecture BA(Hons) with integrated foundation year includes an additional year of study at foundation level, opening up opportunities for you in this field if you do not have the portfolio of work or academic qualifications required for entry to the 3 year Interior Architecture course. This route may also be the best option for you if you are returning to study.

The extra year of study equips you with the knowledge and skills you need to progress whilst enabling you to create a portfolio. Successful completion of the foundation year means you can progress directly onto Interior Architecture BA(Hons). At this point can also opt to continue on to either our accredited Architecture BA(Hons) or Product Design BA(Hons) course.

You’ll contribute to our vibrant studio culture, sharing ideas and techniques. Using drawing, model-making, film and mixed media, you will explore the re-imagining of space for new or different purposes while developing a critical understanding of the experience of space at personal and group levels.
