Programme Specification


The core to all interior design proposals is space; it influences emotions and sensations, and contributes to our general wellbeing and sense of belonging. This five month intensive course provides tailored knowledge of interior design and creative research techniques for the demanding and inspiring interior design industry, for individuals wishing to up-skill, change career direction, or undertake a professional study abroad experience on a limited time frame. With previous undergraduate level training, or relevant work experience, participants work with CAD technical drawing techniques to pull together the plan, design, layout and decoration of interiors for living, or commercial spaces such as offices, hotels or shops, with a strong aesthetic sense and ability to deliver contemporary and forward-thinking solutions. At postgraduate level this course focuses on a research approach to find the right interior solutions for the given space or location. Participants discover how to interpret space according to a design brief or brand identity; learning how to respond to market trends, and business positioning and marketing strategies, considering the overall mood, and atmosphere created through floor plan, layout, colour, lighting and accessories, and the choice of fabrics and materials. They look at how designers successfully reference contemporary style and simultaneously interpret the practical needs and desires of clients taking into consideration new design elements such as sound, scent, tactile features and ‘well-being’ design. Analysis of key historical periods in interiors, fashion and art encourage participants to question the traditional and current discipline of interiors, working on their own creativity and promoting contemporary design thinking and experimentation to produce innovative, and practicable design solutions.
