Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Students on our course produce designs for residential, retail, and work-based spaces as well as undertaking projects for the leisure, hospitality and event and performance industries. Our course will give you the opportunity to work with private and public spaces and within a wide range of buildings and sites as you develop as a versatile designer. The course covers the conceptual, theoretical and practical skills needed to become a successful Interior and Spatial Designer. We look for creative thinkers who respond to the challenges of working locally, in London, nationally and internationally.

Understand the theory as well as the practice of design

We teach historical and contextual studies, giving you a knowledge of the relationship between design theory and practice. You'll also analyse the material qualities of spaces so that you can specify fixtures and fittings.

Through group reviews of work and presentations to clients, you will develop your communication skills to a professional standard and learn to work as part of a design team. Developing as a multi-disciplinary designer with a diverse portfolio, you focus on a particular area of Interior and Spatial Design with your final major project in your third year of the course.

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placements Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field.

We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special skills for work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time.

Placements Plus is all about helping you get some valuable experience under your belt while you’re a student. To increase your choices later, and help you get the graduate-level job you want.

What are my career prospects

As a contemporary designer, you'll have excellent knowledge of recent developments in the field of Interior and Spatial design. Our graduates have gone on to work in interior design, exhibition design, event design and architectural practices as well as in museums and galleries.

Jobs in the field include: Interior Designer, Interior Decorator, Exhibition and Event Designer, Visual Merchandiser, Display Designer, Production and Set Designer or Model-Maker.

How will you help me prepare for my future career?

Throughout your time with us we'll support you on the route to your chosen career. Through our modules and teaching expertise we'll help you to develop crucial skills, encouraging you to become an enterprising and employable designer.

During the second year of the course, our students are encouraged to participate in work experience where they gain insight into the world of professional design practice, gathering confidence and learning independent inter-personal and leadership skills. Some of our students choose to continue their studies at post graduate level.
