Interior Design BA

Interior Design focuses on the way people interact within these environments, considering comfort, usability, effectiveness, aesthetics and emotional connection.

You’ll explore the regeneration of real buildings and sites, turning them into exciting new spaces for exhibition, retail, leisure, performance, spiritual, eating and socialising purposes. You’ll also develop visual communication skills in drawing, 3D modelling, computing, video-modelscope, computer-aided design (CAD) and virtual reality. Your work will respond to future global challenges whilst reflecting the importance of sustainability and inclusivity.
