BA (Hons) 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.
IS THIS DEGREE FOR YOU?
Graduates from our course mainly work within interior design and architectural practices. There is scope to move into setting up their own interior design practice with experience work as a freelance consultant.
