Possible career paths

Participants discover how to interpret and ‘read’ a space, combining technical aspects in construction with contemporary design elements, fundamental for the successful management and development of design proposals. They research and evaluate past and current trends, and brand identity, responding to their own individual style combined with industry needs, project briefs, brand image strategies, or specific client requests. The history and evolution of interior design takes a look at the discipline as an art form and as a science in its ability to ‘transform’ space. Throughout the course focus is on interiors specific to the world of luxury where participants research and analyse the importance of brand identity, planning for retail spaces such as flagship stores, showrooms, trade fairs and exhibition spaces. ‘Real world’ experience in project development is achieved through collaborations with companies on industry projects, taking an idea from concept through to final presentation, as well as ‘signing-off’ the space upon completion. Covering different segments of the market participants receive professional feedback and guidance from the company throughout the project. A final graduation showcase event gives the opportunity to further network and engage with industry professionals. They are encouraged to experiment with contemporary design, and consider new approaches in the industry that are evolving today, including influences in sound, scent, tactile features, ‘well-being’ design, sustainability and innovative new materials. Being able to develop, design, and present forward-thinking solutions for interior design projects, with a strong aesthetic awareness, opens up diverse career opportunities in contemporary architectural and interior design practices, and interior divisions in the fashion, luxury and creative industries. This course forms the base of all three-year interior design study pathways. With interior design as the core subject, participants select from different pathways to specialise in a chosen area of interest, responding to individual creative flair and passion. This course is also available as a BA (Hons) four-year course (including Sandwich Year Placement).

The school's values embrace the potent mix of Italian luxury sector professionalism, London cultural and technological innovation, and diverse global perspectives from their students and tutors, providing unique opportunities to make a positive impact locally and globally. They prioritize creativity and imagination, while emphasizing professional standards, to apply design's potential to drive meaningful change for the Earth community.

The BA Interior Design covers spatial and technical design skills, contemporary approaches, and a user-centric and research-driven approach. The curriculum emphasizes the interpretation and improvement of space (adaptive reuse) using spatial tactics, color, layout, acoustics, lighting, furniture, and materials, while taking into account the space's identity, performance, and physical well-being. The course also explores interior design's historical development and examines the art and science of space transformation. 

Students are encouraged to experiment with modern design and industry trends, such as sound, aroma, tactile elements, "well-being" design, sustainability, and application of cutting-edge materials. Graduates can pursue various career opportunities in the architectural, interior design, fashion, luxury, and creative industries. Through group project in the second-year students would explore what interior design means in the extreme climate regions of Earth or future habitation on other planets, as well as designing for metaverses.

The course emphasizes the importance of materiality, specification, and holistic human experience control in designing spaces, while providing a research-intensive learning environment to question and consider the designer's role in contemporary society. It fosters socially responsible, confident, innovative, and entrepreneurial graduates who have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to excel in practice or postgraduate study. As with all Design Programme courses, students can migrate from one to another to specialize and craft their individual route to industry.

Throughout their study students will be supported by number of internal and external tutors, guest speakers and industry mentors like Tom Dixon, visits to design studios, and field trips.

  • Enhance imaginative and analytical capabilities, gain extensive knowledge, and grasp fundamental interior design concepts necessary for interior design.
