Course summary

Develop your creative vision and get a fresh perspective on design. Discover the relationships between design, experience andnarrative to become a unique designer with a distinctive creative voice.Exciting and intriguing spaces offer experiences that make us want to return again and again. On our BA (Hons) Interior Designyou will learn to create effective design proposals, while considering how to develop spaces that connect stories with people.Design can reveal a lot about the users in the space or community they inhabit. You will explore how to embed significant storiesinto your designs, stories that will help others to develop social connections and make your designed spaces important to thewider community.For example, you might consider how someone behaves in a space, what inspires their social interactions, then develop yourdesign proposal around the needs for this activity, such as a communal kitchen where neighbours can meet each other and learnto cook locally grown food. Here we ask, ‘What connects someone to their place?'Throughout the course, you’ll be encouraged to propose design questions - not just solutions, allowing you to better understand aspace before you redesign it. Such questions might include: how can public spaces cater for multiple activities and users?; howmuch space do we need to live in?; how can we respond to changes on the high street by offering an alternate experience?; orhow do major brands reinvent themselves to respond to new markets?We think your ideas, design skills and team work are important. You’ll develop these by working together in small teams atdifferent stages of your degree, sometimes alongside students from other year groups or other art courses, as well as engagingin a consistent conversation with your tutors throughout all three years of the course.Our small studio groups ensure there are at least two tutors for every 20 students. Your tutors will get to know you and your workvery well, helping you to become a resilient and creative designer ready to work in industry.In all of your work, you’ll be able to draw on the shared languages of our specialist team, including spatial and architecturaldesign, object design, film, theatre, and lighting design. This varied combination of ideas makes our graduates unique.You’ll also have opportunities to take part in live projects set by industry as well as work placements. In a recent live project, oursecond year students designed and built the setting for our third years’ degree show exhibition in Cambridge and London.
