BA (Hons) Interior Design Degree /3 Years Full Time

Interior Design is the creative response to interior architectural space, existing or newly built, that considers function and use, material, space and form. Stepping beyond the creative aspect, interior design is also a big industry with its own style of working. Our degree gives you the best of both worlds with an emphasis on creativity, design theory and direct exposure to the business of interior design through collaborative projects with the interior architecture industry. Design projects investigate the key aspects of interior design i.e. re-use and remodeling, lighting and experience etc. This takes place through a range of projects within the context of retail, branding/corporate identities, museum, exhibition/event design, and furniture and art effect design as part of a bespoke interior.

This Interior Design degree is internationally recognised for producing some of the most innovative designers globally. While we guide you towards international competitions, we also create an international platform for your work at Northumbria / AOD Reveal Exhibition and the annual Sri Lanka Design Festival – a prime target for national and international recruiters and a fantastic platform for you.

What our Graduates say about us…

 

Marianne GooneratnaMarianne Gooneratna
Director and Principal Designer at LADYNEON Pvt. Ltd What I value the most about the higher education I received from AOD is my ability to conceptualise. Also while at AOD I studied the complexities of different interior design genres such as; commercial, retail, exhibition, hospitality and residential design. This increases the scope of work I can take on. My then lecturers still continue on as lifelong mentors and AOD also provides a lot of support to its entrepreneurial alumni.

Founder, Shenali de Fonseka Interior Design

I started with Design Foundation and then moved on to my Degree in Interior Design. I had great lecturers at AOD who worked tirelessly to bring out my true potential. What I like about AOD the most was that we were not restricted to classroom lectures. We had a lot of practical exposure where we visited creations by legendary Architects of Sri Lanka, Art Exhibitions and local and foreign Study Tours. Once completing my education at AOD I was quite confident to start working in the industry; thanks to my lecturers who sharpened my skills and built my confidence by sharing their knowledge and real life experiences.

Founder, Interiors by Radhia Hassen
The kind of education I received at AOD was not always textbook-based and our classes included many opportunities that exposed us to the world out there. We were trained in presentation skills and project managing skills as students. Whilst the local architects and designers who taught us brought us an expert education in the local industry, the foreign lecturers broke our thinking patterns and opened our minds to the bigger picture. Creativity comes from being best informed, and today, my own practice, ‘Interiors by Radhia Hassen’ benefits from my insistence of challenging local methods and pushing towards the more globally-appreciated ones.

AOD is doing a great job in developing the design industry and what is most interesting as an architect and a designer is the multi-disciplinary influences that every graduate from AOD has that adds value to the industry.
