What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Interior Architecture (Honours) at UNSW is a four-year full-time degree that will prepare you to improve peoples’ lives through the interior environments they inhabit.

As a graduate of Interior Architecture, you’ll work in a design discipline that focuses on interior environments as integral parts of our cities, including all aspects of their spatial, social and material assembly. Interior architecture and interior design share common ground but differ in their scale and extent of three-dimensional space making. While interior architecture includes the manipulation of the spatial, material and structural elements of a space, such as walls, floors and staircases, interior design focuses on the planning and detail of individual rooms.

Supported by our open and inclusive Faculty of Arts, Design & Architecture (ADA), you’ll join a uniquely interdisciplinary community. As you would in the workforce, you’ll collaborate with students and professionals across the built environment disciplines to develop creative solutions that respond to current societal, functional and aesthetic challenges. You’ll gain the knowledge and career focused experience to design these solutions from the scale of individual rooms to the scale of cities.
