Course summary

Our MA Interior Architecture and Design degree looks at the relationship between ‘interior design’ and ‘interior architecture’. Although there’s currently a divide between each discipline, we feel the opportunity exists to fuse together the most influential elements of both. In other words, the creativity, process and thinking of designers; with the science, knowledge, and pragmatism of architecture. The course is aimed at students from art, design and architectural backgrounds. It offers a range of studio projects, specialist subjects and cross-disciplinary theoretical courses. Ultimately, it’ll give you the chance to develop your own project, along with concepts that test and challenge perceived norms. Students will also achieve PGDip and PGCert awards in this course. The assessment policies for this course incorporate a range of assessment types, with a specific emphasis on formative assessment, self-evaluation, debate and peer critique in all courses. Summative assessment types include coursework, examinations, collaborative and individual problem based projects and a self-directed Masters project with dissertation. The overall approach in the course is centred around each individual learner, and their personal projects, with core information delivered via tutorials, lectures and embedded during seminars. Key methods, theories and techniques will be introduced and discussed. Technical skills will be developed throughout each course and through independent practice. Courses are designed to enable students to undertake a mixture of activities, often involving cross-disciplinary, and long distance international collaboration.
