Course summary

Course overview:

Our MA Interior Design course enables you to develop an individual approach to spatial design within a stimulating, creative and supportive environment.

We aim to produce better designers, who are better at complex design decisions, who are sensitive and ambitious practitioners able to work with an open mind.

At UCA we are committed to research-led practice. Designing through a process of experimental 1:1 prototyping, you will be expected to demonstrate expert knowledge in your chosen field of interest and mastery of your designed outcomes. Finally you will design, construct and exhibit full scale work that is a unique expression of the expertise you've developed with us.

This degree can be a launchpad to potential higher level interior design careers within an interdisciplinary field. Specialist areas you might choose to focus on in your projects include interaction design, VR, immersive events, retail or specialist fabrication. You can work with interesting heritage and sustainability questions, engaging with both contemporary technology and traditional craft, digital and ‘real’ space.

You will be taught through one-to-one tuition, seminars and self-directed study in designated studio space, engaging with academics with expert research intelligence. There are regular reviews with visiting critics from across relevant industry sectors and international study visits.

Students will work with expert technical staff in specialist workshops, committed library and learning staff and a careers team to support access to professional experience.

Through a challenging journey improving research, conceptual, technical and communication skills, with excellent self management, our graduates are well prepared to enter a global market.

Facilities:

Interior Design facilities include dedicated postgraduate open plan studio spaces, used for group tutorials and personal working. 3D workshop with machines for working in wood, metals, plastics and ceramics. Laser cutters, 3D printers and virtual reality lab on campus. Fully-equipped computer studio with Macs and PCs programmed with the latest software for design and animation.

Careers:

Career opportunities exist within design or architectural consultancies in retail, leisure, exhibition, office, hotel, residential and cruise ship design, as well as in the fields of design management, interior or film-set design.

Our course has a strong ecological focus with opportunities for engaging with both the theoretical and practical aspects of real-world sustainability.
