Course summary

Develop your creative vision and get a fresh perspective on design on our full-time Interior Design degree at Cambridge School of Art. Exciting and intriguing spaces offer experiences that can change how we feel, move or enjoy them. Our role as designers is to help other people to develop social relationships which results in us working closely with communities and helping to embed stories into the fabric of our design work.By studying BA (Hons) Interior Design at ARU, you’ll explore the relationships between design, experience and narrative, helping you to develop your independent voice and creativity along the way.With our small studio groups, your tutors will really get to know you and your work, and help you become a distinctive interior designer who will contribute positively to the industry.Design can reveal a lot about the people who use a space, and the communities we build. On our BA (Hons) Interior Design degree you’ll learn to create exciting design proposals, while considering how to develop environments that connect stories with people.Throughout the course, you’ll be encouraged to propose design questions that are human centred and based on the way we are or the way we can be. We will consider carefully the ‘archaeology’ of a site and examine the relationships between us, our sites and landscapes. You will create environments that speak to us.You’ll develop confidence and creativity through working in small teams, with exceptional tutors who are passionate about education and have long arcs of industry experience. You will work alongside other students from different creative degrees at different stages of your degree to help you understand how other people work and think and to learn you will learn what you can contribute to these design conversations. With small studio groups, you’ll engage in a consistent conversation with your tutors too. It’s one of the reasons our Design & Crafts courses ranked 8th in the UK for 'Satisfied with Course' and 3rd for 'Satisfied with Teaching' (The Guardian University Guide 2020).With an eye on your future career, you’ll receive ongoing support to find placements and work experience.You can see your designs become reality in live projects and foster professional relationships through Design Bench, a series of industry networking meetings.Our past students have taken up placements or other work experience with organisations such as Alium Design, Robert Mathew Johnson Marshall (architects), Haley Sharpe Design Ltd (global designers), Julia Johnson (interior designer), Monteith Scott (designers), Dalziel & Pow, Penny Banks, Saunders Boston Architects, Arkitektones, Mineheart, and Laura Ashley.

You might decide to set up your own interior design practice after you graduate.The creative skills you develop will also help you find a career in the visual arts, film, television, event and theatre design, or exhibition and museum design; while the management skills will be useful for project management roles on creative projects.Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us, of course.
