Interior spaces change as society changes. To create spaces that work, we need to understand the context within which the space exists. Studying interior design is key to developing this understanding.

That’s why we offer interior architecture and design courses. In your interior design degree, you’ll explore how the commercial, residential and industrial spaces we use every day need to change as requirements evolve. 

Learn about what people and businesses need, then craft and perfect your skills to assist with finishing and furnishing interiors. Gain the management expertise to guide your projects through to completion, including the ability to demonstrate how furniture, fittings, surfaces and colour schemes fit into your interior design project. 

It doesn’t matter if your career aspirations are in design management, consultancy, project work, or something else entirely — our courses will give you the design skills you need to succeed.
