Course summary

**Summary**: This integrated foundation year degree programme prepares you for degree-level study in a range of disciplines across the creative arts and design. Interior design at Teesside University is one of the longest established interior programmes in Europe with our graduates working all over the world. It is an exciting, creative industry, devising stimulating environments for living, working, shopping, commerce and so many other human activities.**Course details**: Normally based around converting existing buildings, the interior designer considers many design matters including the needs of the end user, creating interior spatial layouts, and improving circulation and function. The interior designer’s role also embraces material specifications, designing bespoke textiles, fittings and furniture, and selecting colour palettes and lighting schemes. At Teesside University we encourage you to become a creative design professional. Here you will learn interior decorative arts, trends, fashions and textiles, architectural drawing techniques, 2D and 3D industry-standard CAD, history of design and architecture, plus the essentials of professional practice. These are all applied into your core creative design studio projects. Projects replicate professional practice ensuring you are ready for the design profession. You can work on live projects with real clients and enter prestigious competitions such as those offered by the Royal Society of Arts. Recent live briefs have included working with a national chain to redesign a public house, proposals for a jewellery gallery for Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima), and designing a residential apartment and office concepts in collaboration with a major furniture manufacturer. You work in a dedicated design studio environment with access to high-quality CAD and superb workshop facilities. The course has an outstanding track record for innovative teaching and supporting students to achieve high grades. Get involved in extra curricula activities – guest lectures and workshops from both professionals in practice and our successful graduates now working throughout the world. Experience iconic architecture through educational visits – recent trips include Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin. We prepare you to become excellent design graduates and successful design professionals.**After the course**: When you successfully complete the foundation year, you can progress to the first year of the degree. When you successfully complete the degree you might pursue a career in interior design or as a designer in the retail, exhibition, set design, leisure, surface pattern, merchandising or housing areas, or you might continue to postgraduate study.
