Course Summary

This course promotes a dynamic and speculative approach to the design of interior spatial environments and values research that seeks to challenge traditional methodologies. It gives you the opportunity to pursue your particular issues of interest in interior design or specialist areas of three dimensional design, through concise and focused study.

You will cover a range of issues, both theoretical and practical. Design modules deal with contemporary issues in a variety of interior design typologies, including retail, exhibition, gallery, performance and speculative efforts broadly described as installation. Careful studies are made in the pursuit of a fresh approach to their design resolution, through analogous and figurative studies, as well as comparison using suitable contemporary exemplars. The thesis can be undertaken as a design project, a dissertation or a piece of research - effectively a hybrid, both a project and a written summary or theoretical proposition. Our graduates have the knowledge and advantage of already operating within a competitive and demanding academic environment in London. In some cases the course has equipped our graduates to advance their study at PhD level.

Entry requirements

Students are normally required to have a good Honours degree in Architecture, Interior Design or a related design discipline. If their qualifications are in subject areas cognate to the course they will be considered on merit. In certain cases, and subject to evidence of equivalent prior study, or acceptance of Credit Transfer, entry may be permitted into the course at an assessment point other than the first. If their background is in another field they may be considered providing they are able to demonstrate practical experience or knowledge of interior design at the appropriate level. Part-time students are normally expected to be employed by an interior design practice or related profession, and to have at least two years’ relevant work experience. Full-time students would normally be expected to have some relevant experience in interior design practice. Students will be asked to submit their portfolio in an electronic format once they have made an application.
