What will I learn?

The course is equivalent to the third year of an interior design undergraduate course. As well as helping to progress onto postgraduate level study the course will also aid transition into the professional world of interior design. Students on this course come from many different backgrounds but most have already gained a first degree.

  • There are various research and study visits and trips during the year - in London, the UK and abroad
  • Be involved in various live projects. These are across the field of interior design, including retail, restaurants, hotel, other hospitality, and of course residential. We work closely with industry professionals and our students are offered a range of possible work experience and internships, often leading to employment
