Course content

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.
