Course content

Constructing and communicating spatial identities, study at the World's number one ranked art and design university for seven consecutive years (2015-2021) in the QS World University Subject Rankings.

The MA Interior Design programme engages you in exploring emergent ideas and issues concerning distinct aspects of the design of the interior. This incorporates research, practice and making work that explores the diversity of human occupation in numerous environments, extending from the room to the city. The programme encourages the view that the interior is an interface between its occupants and the built environment, and it supports the notion that the interior is an agent for social change.

The programme is located in the School of Architecture. Work is undertaken through design studios, known as platforms and is supported with lectures, seminars and workshops. Talks by researchers, academics and practitioners from related disciplines – set design, architecture, branding, installation art - constitute the 'inside/out' lecture series. These are offered in the unique RCA context of interdisciplinary, studio and workshop-oriented, speculative advanced study. There are often opportunities for projects in conjunction with appropriate external partners and practice mentorship is offered throughout the provision.
