What will I learn?

Develop your technical and professional skills of the built environment linked to industrial design and architecture.

Interior design is the act of creating engaging environments within and around existing spaces and structures. This entails the design and planning of a diverse array of spaces that span residential, leisure, retail, F&B, office, healthcare, hospitality and institutional spaces.

The curriculum is based on a number of key design principles. Fundamental technical skills and vocational knowledge remain the focus and are supported through design investigations, explorations, experimentations and conceptual thinking methods. These are explored in a practice-based studio environment where traditional drafting and modelling techniques, as well as the latest in computer-aided drawing and visualisation are honed.

Knowledge of historical and contemporary design further develops your understanding of design in the built environment. The programme remains sensitive and relevant to the industry’s developments and demands through continuous links with industry partners.

With its diverse market sectors and niches, employment is abundant — ranging from large architectural practices to smaller boutique consultancy firms. The education you receive competitively positions you in an advantageous light. Our graduates have found placements in award-winning local and international practices.

The Diploma is offered as a full time programme over three years and is divided into three levels, which correspond to each academic year of the programme. The academic year is divided into two semesters of thirteen weeks with two additional Assessment Weeks (Week 14 and 15). There will be 120 credits for each year of study and successful Diploma graduates must gain a total of 360 credits points to earn the Diploma.

Diploma programmes span three levels, where your technical and vocational skills as well as competence and knowledge will be developed to ensure you are industry-ready. Upon successful completion, you will be awarded with a Diploma certificate. Thereafter, exceptional Diploma graduates may apply to enter Level 2 of a LASALLE BA(Hons) programme within the same discipline.
