Covering the study and design of interior space in relation to a wide range of public and private environments, these programmes will guide you through innovative design projects that will enable you to explore the design potential of existing buildings and find new uses for old or redundant spaces.
You’ll be encouraged to focus on the aspects of interior design that you find interesting or personally relevant, and take charge of the direction of your coursework.
Visits from industry practitioners, along with our strong links with commercial design consultancies and architectural practices, are invaluable in providing opportunities for expert advice and critical appraisal.
MFA students take advantage of one semester of study at one of our IMIAD (International Masters in Interior Architectural Design) partner universities, SUPSI Lugano, HFT Stuttgart, LAMK Lahti, ITU Istanbul as part of their four semester course.
All programmes integrate practical studio work with theoretical and written studies, including professional practice elements to prepare you for employment in the industry, and a lecture/seminar series to examine the wider context of your studies. The aim is to encourage and support postgraduate students who wish to explore interior design as a means of expressing ideas and opinions.
For assessment, MA and MFA students produce a body of practical and written work on an agreed, self-initiated topic. This may include set projects within the programme curriculum. MFA students produce an additional extended body of work.
We have an enviable track record of success as our graduates set up their own businesses or gain architectural design work here in the UK or overseas.
